Step 1.

Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture. As it is not a perfect egg shape.

Step 2.

Now draw in the bisecting line to balance his facial features.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. for mouth, e. for shoulder placements.

Step 5.

Now draw Liam's forehead wrinkles, eyebrows, and eyes.

Step 6.

Observe where Liam's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in the his nose, mustache, scruff, and mouth.

Step 7.

Here's where you can focus better on his hair. Use those long strokes for his hair sloping down. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This will help as you shade it in.

Step 8.

Watch closely the sides of Liam's face and how it relates to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy. Now sketch in his ears, jawline, and chin. Don't forget to use small sketch lines for his beard. Also finish his neck, lapel, and s   

Step 9.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 10.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think.    

Step 11.

Step 12.

The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/det

Step 15.

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.

Step 16.

This is the first start. This is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied   

Step 17.


Step 18.

I sketched in darker with my 0.7mm mechanical and 9B pencil his eyes, mouth, and beard. Between the shadowed hair strands, I used the point of the 9B. To blend, I twisted and curled my stump around like a car on a winding road in-between his hair. *   

Step 19.

I took charge and grabbed my 9B Graphite Crayon and smoothly blackened in the background and shoulders. TIP: To balance the darkness I went over the darker areas in his hair and used my 9B graphite crayon on his eyebrows and beard. Then I took my ble   

Step 20.

I have to say this...OH, I'M GLAD I'M FINISHED... how about you? This was one heck of a drawing experience. I can't believe how much details two pictures take. But it's well worth it if you're enjoying the tutorial. I also took the pure white opaque

Description: Liam Hemsworth, Australian born, is a new star, brother to Chris Hemsworth of Thor and Luke Hemsworth (all actors). In "The Hunger Games", Liam plays Gale, a long-time friend and hunter with Katniss. He is romantically inclined toward Katniss, but never pushes it. Also he has a temper and sometimes uses The Capiitol's methods, which puts him at odds with Katniss. So this tutorial is in tribute to one of the engaging characters of this already popular movie and bestselling book. I wanted to treat you in this "Hunger Games" tutorial. You can draw Liam's front view, Liam's character profile (Gale) or both. I just want you to have fun. Let me know what you experienced by commenting, faving and showing your love. Much love to you all. I cannot wait to hear from you.
