How To Draw Lady Gaga


Draw lightly Gaga's oval shape.


Also lightly draw the line in the middle with a pencil (No. 2 or HB mechanical pencil).


Now sketch in the crescent shapes which helps with head mass & also the strange leaf is a placement for Lady Gaga's hand. And don't forget that stem, which is her wrist.


Make sure you give a curving shape to the lines in this step. Observe the space between the lines and how c. & d. lines seem to continue as one. a.) is placed at her tear ducts, b.) is for the bottom of her nose, c.) runs through the middle of her mo   


Simply add the circles for her thumb digit.


Now you get a chance to start on her face. Draw lightly her bangs, eyes, side of face, nose, and mouth. Take your time. You can erase or leave your sketchy lines... whichever is most comfortable for you.


If you want, go ahead & take a break because there are plenty of lines to draw here. Look closly and follow the lines to her hair, eye pupils, chrome-like piece on her face, ring, hand, glove, thumb, and the decorative throw over her shoulder.


The first picture is how your picture may look with the guidelines. You can erase them if you want. Check out how the second picture looks. Adding more defined lines, fluffing her hair, detailing her glove will add more realism. If you want to, but N   


Sketch it, babeee! Yeah, you can use your mechanical pencil & lead at Fine or HB. Lightly make gentle back and forth motions all over her face. Now if you're comfortable with circular motions... do it! Artists all over have their own style of drawing

Description: Lady Gaga, the Fashionista of the pop music world, has won 5 Grammy awards. I'm loving this because while doing this tutorial last night (Thursday, May 4, 2011), an American Idol contestant sang one of Lady Gaga's unreleased songs (with the Queen of pop's permission). I'm hoping you can learn to draw from this tutorial and find it helpful. Everyone... peace & joy to you with love!
