Step 1.

Like all portrait drawings I submit, you will start off with a circle for her head, and then add the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

You will start using the facial guidelines to sketch out the shape of beginning lines for her eyes. When that is done, sketch out her nose, and then sketch the top lining of her mouth.

Step 3.

Kesha has a dazed look on her face which is why some of her features look a bit off. This step is all about getting her face sketched out. Start this process by sketching out her eyebrows, and the rest of her eyes. Once her eyes are drawn you can tha   

Step 4.

You will now begin sketching out the shape of her face, and then add some definition shading to her eyes like you see here. Once that is all set, you can add some detail shading on her nose, and then begin sketching out her pretty hair style. I love    

Step 5.

You will continue to sketch out her hair style like you see here, which is long, flowing, and chunky looking. Once that is done you can move to the next step.

Step 6.

Finish off Kesha by sketching out the rest of her chunky looking locks, and then draw the shape of her neck, and shoulder. Add detailing strand lines to define the texture of her hair, and then erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 7.

Add some shading the way you see it done here, and you are finished with this lesson on "how to draw Kesha, step by step". I hope you had fun!

Description: Before I get started with another duo creation, I want to upload this tutorial on a singer that is making a name for herself. Today, I will show you "how to draw Kesha", step by step. She is a singer songwriter that started her climb to the top back in 2009 when she appeared on Flo Rida's single “Right Round”. After that, Kesha herself released her debut single labeled, “Tik Tok”, and since than she has been building more and more fame and popularity. Some people may ask themselves if her real name is Kesha, or was the name created to be unique. The truth is yes, her real name is Kesha, Kesha Rose Sebert. Like a lot of kids around the world, Kesha was brought up by her mother who was a single parent. Her mothers name is Pebe Sebert, and it was up to her to raise Kesha, and her two brothers Lagan and Louis. Her mother was a struggling singer, songwriter herself, and she would often take the kids to gigs as they watched on the side lines. Now, because her mother was struggling financially, they had to resort to food stamps, and cash benefits from welfare just to get by. Even though Kesha grew up without a lot of things, she still managed to keep her spirits high, and believe in herself. Her mother Pebe is the one that taught Kesha how to write music, and they would often write together when she got home from school. As far as school goes, well, let's just say that Kesha maintained almost perfect SAT scores. Unfortunately, she dropped out when she was seventeen, but she later got her GED. Soon after that, she started her career beginning in 2005, all the way to 2009. This means it took her four years just to be recognized, and taken serious. Did you know that Kesha was a background singer for one of Britney Spears songs? It's true, she sand background vocals for the song “Lace and Leather”. Another cool fact is how she appeared in Katy Perry's video “I Kissed a Girl”. If you watch the video, you will see Kesha as plain as day. Now that she is a star of her own, people love her music. Tik Tok is still loved, Blah Blah Blah made an impression on many listeners as she had 3OH3 appear on the song too. Nowadays, she is making way with her other hit “Your Love is My Drug”. I find that all her songs are very upbeat, and leave a smile on your face. I had fun drawing out this music star, and I know you too will have a blast learning "how to draw Kesha", step by step. I still have more excitement coming your way so stay tuned in guys and be prepared for awesomeness!
