How to Draw Robin Williams


Begin with drawing the head guide as well as the facial guidelines.


You will then take that guide you just made and begin sketching out the structure for Robin's face shape. Notice how the jaw line is angled and the sides of the head have hair roots.


We are going for that whimsical look since he was always doing funny roles. Draw in the sides of his hair which is long and a bit wild/curly. You will also need to draw in his left ear too.


Now sketch out Robin Williams' eyebrows and then color them in a soft manner.


Here you will draw his friendly eyes. Make sure that the folds and creases of the eyes are added.


Next, sketch in the wrinkles or crinkles on the forehead which are made from the expression on his face. When that is done sketch in his nose, and mouth like so. You will also need to add some definition to the face for the chin, frown lines and chee   


Here we will draw in the shape of his neck, followed by the shoulders. Be sure to add some layered wrinkles on the shirt collar like you see here.


Now draw in his bow tie which he wore in the film Flubber. Add detailing to knot to make it look real and indented.


Lastly, draw in the polka dots, then draw the jacket detailing which is the opening of the coat. Erase the guides and you are done with drawing Robin Williams.


Here is the line art when you are all done. I think he came out awesome and hopefully everyone appreciates the lesson.

Description: Okay folks, I'm sure a lot of you have learned that funny man Robin Williams has passed away today at the age of 63. He was one of my favorite actors growing up as a child and was in movies that I will always remember. Even though he was known as a comedian, he also did an awesome job with acting on a more serious note. Some of the movies I enjoyed Robin Williams in was; Jumanji, Mrs. Doubtfire, Flubber, Hook, Aladdin, Jack, Happy Feet, RV, and some other comedic roles he was in. As for his serious acting roles I liked him in; Good Will Hunting, One Hour Photo, Awakenings, Jacob the Liar, Bicentennial Man, Patch Adams, and I loved him in World's Greatest Dad. He will be missed, and this lesson is dedicated to him. He brought a lot of laughter to my life and he will forever live on through all the movies he has done. I hope you enjoy drawing Robin Williams using this as he looked happiest.
