Step 2.

Next, sketch the hat for Leonardo, which is his signature trait. Before you proceed to thicken your lines, be sure that it's the outcome you're satisfied with. Always trust your instincts.

Step 3.

Then, let's draw the shape of the face by sketching the sides of the face and the beard. This is the most vital part about Leonardo's face that we must include with the drawing. Use thin lines for the individual separating strands of beard.

Step 4.

Now that we have the inside frame of the face and beard, let's proceed to drawing the outer shape of the head. Use thick outlines for the outlining shape of the head, and thinner lines for the detailing sections of strands.

Step 5.

Lastly, fill in his facial features. Leonardo naturally looks angry in most of his photos. His nose is moderately long than most faces. Make sure you draw his eyebrows thick, and thin line weights for the indication of mustache and beard.

Step 6.
