Artist: Dawn / March 9, 2013

Step 1.

First draw the guide for the face like so, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Next, using the guide begin sketching out the shape of Nixon's face like so. His jowls or cheeks are very puffy and his chin sort of slopes outward. Draw the ear, then move to step three.

Step 3.

Next we will sketch out his hair which is in a combed back style. The hairline should be shaggy so make sure to create it the way you see it.

Step 4.

Using the facial guidelines, draw out the eyebrows which are thick and in a crinkled pose. When that is done draw out his eyes, color in the pupils, then sketch out the wrinkling or bags under and around the eyes. Don't forget to sketch his nose, mou   

Step 5.

Sketch out double neck as well as the shirt collar and tie.

Step 6.

For the last step all you have to do is draw the shoulders, add the sleeve detailing, then draw the creases on his jacket. Erase the mistakes then you are all done.

Step 7.

Here is the line art of Richard Nixon when you are all finished. Color him in and that's it.

Description: I will be uploading a series of lessons on some very influential people from history. These people will vary from presidents to scientists. To start we will tackle the task of learning "how to draw Richard Nixon", step by step. Nixon was the United States thirty seventh president that had a variety of problems as well as successes. For one, Richard Nixon helped end the American war in Vietnam which was a war that accumulated thousands of protesters around the nation. He was also responsible for getting rid of the draft, wrote in the very first anti-crime laws (which today is something that a lot of people don't approve of), as well as soothing the wound that the United States had with China by improving our relationship with them. Before he became president America was in dire need of help. Its cities was in turbulence as well as in a painful state. Although Richard M. Nixon did some good things while he was president, he was also part of a historic scandal that will forever be talked about which is known as the 'Watergate Scandal'. Because of this error, he had to respectfully resign and turnover his presidency to Gerald Ford. The tutorial I made for you should be simple to follow and understand so I hope you have fun drawing Richard Nixon, I will be sure to hurry with the other tuts I have in store for all of you. Adios people!
