How to Draw Merle Dixon, Merle from The Walking Dead, Michael Rooker


Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.


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


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


You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, and d. for mouth placement.


Now draw in Merle's forehead wrinkles, eyes, invisible eyebrows, and bags beneath his eyes.

Watch closely how Merle's face outline, jawline, and chin, ear relate to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.

Description: This is Merle Dixon (played brilliantly by Michael Rooker). This infamous redneck commando type is Daryl's brother. What a difference. Having abused his brother, isolating him from social interaction, he has now kidnapped Glenn and Maggie, a prize for the Governor. In the 2nd episode of this show, he was left behind cuffed on a storefront's rooftop. To set himself free, he cut off his hand only for Daryl to discover when the group went back to rescue him. Strange thing is Merle seemed to have adapted, always brandishing his handless arm, literally armed to the teeth with a blade and a huge arm cover protection! I think the group has to be more afraid of the living! With this very popular comic book, game, and TV show, you either love it or hate it. And I absolutely love this show. Let me know what you think of this more simplified tut by commenting, faving or clicking on "Love It"! Peace n love to ya!
