How To Draw iCarly

Artist: catlucker / November 23, 2010

Step 1.

Hi everyone! Once again, we've got a new tutorial. This should be fun. Start out with a simple oval, the top slanting a little to the left. Sketch it out. You don't have to make it perfect or worry about extra lines. You are beginning your masterpiec   

Step 2.

The strange crescent shape on the side of the oval is just a reminder that her hair will be there. Also the red bisecting line is to help with eyebrows, eye, nose and mouth placement, since our lovely star's face is symmetrical.

Step 3.

Seriously, this next picture looks like a telephone pole or satellite antennae. Those lines are representing the reference pic. The top one is hairline. The next group of 4 lines (from top to bottom)are: Eyebrow arch, bottom of eyebrow, tear ducts, b   

Step 4.

If you are doing a professional picture and need accuracy, this has helped me tremendously. This is MY TIP of the day and it is LONG! Skip it if you want to. Those crazy lines help with placement too. Don't get me wrong, I mess up majorly most ti   

Step 5.

You've shaped, erased, sketched, and more. Your picture won't have neat lines like this, only because my pic is a guide... that's it. But look at the guide lines and see how important they are... how they help with the line up. Erase most other distr   

Step 6.

TRICKS, TIPS 'n TOYS! I'm in love with graphite pencil sticks. I used a 9B! It's nice, black, smooth on the surface and makes such great dark lines. And a No.2 pencil isn't bad either--great for details and light shading. Kneaded erasers are charm   

Step 7.

TIPS! Drawing a circle then an almond shape with a horizontal line dissecting the eye helps with placement--well, our eyes are in a socket. Focus on tear duct, the lip of the lower eye that holds the bottom eyelashes. Notice how the top lashes curve   

Step 8.

TIPS! The sides of the nose are shaded or blended in. Drawing it with hard outlines make the picture a cartoon or caricature.

Step 9.

TIPS! You ever heard someone say, "Those luscious lips!" *giggle* Well, in honor of Miranda's luscious lips, I've got a tip for you. You'll notice that the upper lip is normally shaded darker than the lower lip. And there are highlights and grove   

Step 10.

Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But he   

Step 11.

This guide let's you know where shading is needed and the stroking direction of the hair strands. Don't worry, your picture can be sketchy looking. This is like molding so you'll see different things you need to do. Shade in small circles on the faci   

Step 12.

Look at that! She's almost finished. You're almost done. If you need to. Let the picture lay and come back in the morning to see how the features line up. Sometimes giving your brain a rest helps tremendously. It's like a reset. Put that picture in t   

Step 13.

Here she is! I wanted to show you this one that I didn't darken, blur, clean, and edit. It's raw, splotches, dusty looking. so never fear, perfection takes time, focus, and patience. Be proud because you are okay and on your way! Let me know if m

Description: The beautiful Miranda Cosgrove has surprises up her sleeve. She not only is a young actress, but also is a popular singer. She has played as Megan Parker in “Josh & Drake” and held the lead role in “iCarly.” Giving a short mention, she's also released her debut album “Sparks Fly” in April 27, 2010. It is fun to learn about new and upcoming artists such as her.
