Step 1.

First start with this oval for Mark's face. For his shoulders, draw the small hill. Draw the red lines representing his arms then the ovals for his hands. Of course, don't forget to bisect this guide with the line vertically slanted line. Draw lightl   

Step 2.

The red crescent outer line is a placement for the crown of Mark's head. The crescent line inside his face represents his hairline. The a) line is for his eyebrows, b) line for his eyes, c) line for his nose, and d) line for his mouth.

Step 3.

Draw in lightly his eyebrows, eyes, and nose. Compare to where they fall on the lines. Also check your drawing to see if it matches for accuracy.

Step 4.

Now draw in his right ear facing you, then work down the his face. Observe how between his nose and mouth, the side of his face has a little hump. Add his mouth and jawline. And try drawing lightly his forehead wrinkles.

Step 5.

Lightly sketch in his hair, ear, neck, and shoulders. Also shade within his neck and add the shadow on his shoulder from his face.

Step 6.

Here is the fun part, that is drawing his mighty biceps. Gotta love it! Make sure you get those folds on his t-shirt! It tells you he's nicely built, pecs & all! Warning! Don't become impatient. That is your enemy. Take your time and focus on his han   

Step 7.

Even if your picture doesn't look like this drawing, don't worry. We all have learning curves and I want to congratulate you on completing this tutorial thus far. Those of you who would like to continue, you know what to expect... a full pencil drawi   

Step 8.

At this point, you can erase your guideline and see if your picture looks similar.

Step 9.

Before we go any further, I want to mention some tools I used, which is the famous white acrylic and also sandpaper. Right before I shaded, I used a textured notebook cover and sandpaper while shading Mark's t-shirt. You will see what I mean in the u   

Step 10.

The picture that goes with this Step 10 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/

PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.

Step 13.

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 14.

This step and the following include techniques for detailed pencil drawing. You can use line strokes, sketching, to fill in Mark Wahlberg. However, I have found you can save up to two hours with firm pastel color sticks, ranging from light, medium,    

Step 15.

I rubbed very lightly with a tissue to blend and fill in. What is so wonderful about the pastel is that when you blend with it, it covers without losing the pencil detail. I also used a blending stump for tinier areas and for shading. The really dark   

Step 16.

Here, I applied the 9B pencil for darkness on his hair, dark area on his face and back. He looks almost finished. But you know me, I have to add back ground.

Step 17.

Did I tell you how much I love the gray grades of pastels? Here, my background only took a few minutes to cover with no circular or straight sketchy marks! And you barely brush your paper with a tissue to get amazing results. Satisfied, I sprayed a s
