How to Draw Haymitch, Hunger Games, Woody Harrelson

Step 1.

Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture. As it is not a perfect egg shape.

Step 2.

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

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 shoulder placements.

Step 5.

Now draw Haymitch's eyebrows, eyes, and nose.

Step 6.

Observe where Haymitch's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in the his mustache, scruff, and mouth.

Step 7.

Watch closely the sides of Haymitch's face and how it relates to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy. Now sketch in his face, forehead wrinkles and beard.

Step 8.

Here's where you can focus better on his hair. Use those long strokes for his hair sloping down. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This will help as you shade it in.

Step 9.

If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines. Also finish his collar, lapel, and shoulders.

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 11.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think.    

Step 12.

This time Acrylics has won! Sandpaper, the new kid on the block has to take a back seat to my wonderful Titanium White for HIGHLIGHTS! Yaaaa! Try it, you'll like it!

Step 13.

The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/det

Step 16.

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.

Step 17.

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 18.


Step 19.

I sketched in darker with my 0.7mm mechanical and 9B pencil his eyes & mouth. I placed my 9B pencil flat and barely touching the paper went over the darker side of his face. Between the shadowed hair strands, I used the point of the 9B. To blend, I t   

Step 20.

I took my small sized paint brush and opaque white watercolor to add more defined strands, beard hairs, sparkle to his eyes, and texture lines on his lapel & suit jacket. I worked some more details in his wrinkles, adding shadows and taking my kneade   

Step 21.

*clap your hands!* I have finally FINISHED! I took the pure white opaque watercolor and added more highlights to his hair strands and sparkle in his eye. I also added the black background with my 9B graphite crayon. This pastel stuff really works wel

Description: Haymitch Albernathy, played by the amazing Woody Harrelson, becomes a pot bellied drunk. You wonder why the victor of the 50th Hunger Games would be such a drunken slob. After 2 weeks of his victory, Haymitch's mother, younger brother, and girlfriend were killed by President Snow, as punishment for Haymitch using the force field to his advantage killing one of the opponents leaving him the victor. That murderous act could take the life out of anyone. So this tutorial is in tribute to one of the engaging characters of this already popular movie and bestselling book. I wanted to treat you in this "Hunger Games" tutorial. You can draw Haymitch's 3/4 view, profile or both. I just want you to have fun. Let me know what you experienced by commenting, faving and voting. Much love to you all. I cannot wait to hear from you.
