How to Draw Nosferatu

Artist: Dawn / October 29, 2013

Step 1.

Begin by making the outline for the head then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the guide you just made, sketch out the shape or structure for the head and face like so, then draw in the large pointed bat like ears.

Step 3.

Up next, draw the thick shapes of the eyebrows, then sketch in the sunken in parts of the cheeks. You will also draw the detailing inside the ear then you can move to step four.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw the circles for the eyes, then add some shading around the eyes until they appear dark. Draw the nose, then draw in the mouth along with the pointed teeth. Add the frown lines around the side parts of the nose.

Step 5.

Next, add the chin arch, then draw in the eyeballs. Add the temple indents and then you are done here.

Step 6.

For the last step you will sketch out the shape of the neck, then draw the high raised jacket collar as well as the trimming along the collar. Add the tie and then make the edge lining bold and thick. Erase all the mistakes and you are all done.

Step 7.

Here is the line art when you are all done. You can choose to color in Nosferatu using colors or you can leave the image as a black and white drawing as I did.

Description: I'm sure everyone is familiar with the face you see before you now because it has been around for years and years. It is the famous vampire that doesn't go by the name Dracula, instead here is a tutorial on "how to draw Nosferatu", step by step. The idea to do this lesson came about after I watched the movie 'Shadow of the Vampire' starring William Dafoe as Nosferatu. It was so funny even though the writers didn't intend for the movie to have a comedic flare. I love the way that this character creation came out, and I'm pretty shocked that I never did a drawing, or lesson on this figure from horror. The bald vampire looks old, rank and full of evilness. I know all you fans of these creatures of the night will have fun drawing Nosferatu in this format. I shall return and since Halloween is tomorrow all you will see is a bunch of awesomeness. Peace out people and try not to get bitten tomorrow by this monster.
