How to Draw Floyd Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather

Step 1.


Draw the oval shape lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.


Now draw in the bisecting line to balance his facial features and curve.

Step 3.


Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.


You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. for mouth, e. for shoulders, and f. for boxing glove.

Step 5.


Now draw Floyd's forehead wrinkle, eyebrows and eyes.

Step 6.


Observe where Floyd's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, and mouth.

Step 7.


Draw in the profile of his jawline, ears, and chin. Look closely at how the lines of his hair appear within the guidelines. Remember, patience is your best friend because with it, you'll be able to complete your drawing.

Step 8.


Draw in his neck, collar bone, and part of his boxing glove.

Step 9.


This step is a bit challenging because of the fold details on the boxing glove and the text on the glove. Don't make these folds straight. Make them a bit crooked. If you haven't already, you can now erase your guidelines. The lines you couldn't eras

This is the first start. This is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied   

Step 15.


   

Step 16.


I used my 9B pencil for the shaded areas on his face, filled in his hair more (circular motions), darkened the shadows on his boxer gloves and chest. I took my kneaded eraser and lightened highlighted areas on his face.

Step 17.


Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I first blended the pencil sketches with my toritllon to give a smooth transition. I added more dark tones and details to his hair (in circular mot   

Step 18.
