How to Draw John Adams, John Adams


Make the outline for John's head by sketching out an oblong face shape. Sketch in the facial guidelines.


Here you will sketch in the beginning lining for the face, then add that outer layer of skin to create the double chin.


Up next, you will draw out the wavy bushy hair on each side of John Adams' head, then add some detailing. You will need to make sure that he is completely bald on top of the head as well as in the middle.


Sketch out the broad shape of the nose, then add detailing at the bridge of the nose.


The next thing you will need to do is draw out the eyebrows, then color them in. Make sure they are nicely arched.


Next up, draw out the shapes of his eyes, and make sure that the eyelids are visible. Add the puffy bags under each eye.


Draw in the simple lined mouth, then sketch in the frown lines on the sides of his mouth. Add the chin arch, and detailing to his cheek. Don't forget to draw the rest of the face shape.


You are almost done people. Draw the jacket, back part of his body which is also the back, then draw in his tie.


Lastly, draw the ponytail and add the last minute detailing throughout. Erase your mistakes too.


Here is the line art when you are all done. Now you can color in Mr. John Adams.
