Step 1.

Quentin Tarantino is not only one of the greatest directors of our time, but he's also a talented actor. One of his earliest rolls was in the cult classic film, From Dusk Till Dawn, in which he played the outlaw criminal, Richard Gecko. So how do you   

Step 2.

Let's start with the eyes. Using the guide lines for a reference, draw the almond-shaped eyes along the horizontal mid line. Remember that eyes are roughly one eye width apart from one another. Be sure to draw wrinkles where the bottom of the eye soc   

Step 3.

Continue drawing the face by inserting the nose and eyes. The nose ends 1/4 of the way up from the chin. The mouth is located roughly half way between the chin and the bottom of the nose. Tarantino's upper lip curls upwards ever so slightly. Be sure    

Step 4.

Now that the face is draw, lets draw the outline of the head and the ears. Tarantino is known for having a rather large, prominent chin. Because of the angle we are working at, the ears will rest slightly high on the sides of the head.

Step 5.

Another key feature about Tarantino's appearance is his large forehead. Be sure to draw the hair line somewhat high and give him sideburns. His hair should be slightly messy to help indicate that he's been on the run from the law and has seen some ac   

Step 6.

The character wears large frames glasses, so let's add these in next. Sorry, you'll have to do some erasing, but it's best to add the glasses on the head after the head is drawn, rather than before. Be sure that the arms of the glass recede towards t   

Step 7.

Next, draw the upper torso of the body. The character is always seen wearing a rugged black suit with a white button up shirt underneath. No tie. Be sure the clothing is somewhat wrinkled and looks well worn.

Step 8.

To make things more interesting, we should draw his hand holding up a gun. You'll need to erase some of what you drew in the previous step. The fingers will wrap around the handle of the gun, so we won't be able to see all of the fingers. If it helps   

Step 9.

Now draw the gun with the help of a ruler. Keep your lines straight. Envision the gun as a three dimensional L shape.

Step 10.

Next, ink your image using a brush and ink, or Micron markers. Be patient and make sure to go over the proper lines. One the ink dries, erase the pencil marks with a kneaded eraser.

Step 11.

As I mentioned earlier, the character wears a black jacket so we should fill it in with black ink. Also take this opportunity to add shadow to the rest of image. Establish a light source, in this case it is coming from the upper right side of the pag   

Step 12.

If you've made any mistakes, you can use white ink or opaque white paint to correct them. Add in any final touches, such as highlights on the eyes or hair. And you're done! That's how you draw Quentin Tarantino as seen in From Dusk Till Dawn.
