How to Draw Sentinel Prime

Step 1.


To begin the underdrawing, draw a large oval shape for the head. Draw a vertical line down the center of the head. Next draw horizontal lines for the eyes, nose and mouth. Using the corners of the mouth as a guide, place marks for the center of each    

Step 2.


Although this mystery guy is a robot, his design is pretty organic and extremely uneven. Maybe he got beat up. Maybe it's just how he looks. In any case, let's start outlining the major shapes. Begin with the forehead crest. Just draw a lumpy, raisin   

Step 3.


Ahem. Next draw a diamond-like shape in the center of the face for the nose. Draw a semi-rectangular shape for the chin plate. Now we're going to start the helmet, focusing on the part that covers part of the face. Start up on the top of the head. Im   

Step 4.


Moving on the the facial features, start by drawing some uneven lines for the eyebrow ridge. Next outline the bottom of the eye sockets. Draw in some crazy, Y-shapes for the cheekbones. The tops of these shapes should match the curve of the eye socke   

Step 5.


Starting from the bottom here, draw in the line of the mouth. Try to make it lumpy, and not just a straight line. Moving upward, we need to place some jagged shapes between the cheekbones and upper lip. The larger shapes overlap the nose, and the sma   

Step 6.


Now we want to start fleshing out the eyelids. There are plenty of overlapping metal panels here. Draw some S-shaped curves from the bridge of the nose outward. Imagine him having worms draped over his eyes. I know that sounds weird, but it kind of l   

Step 7.


On both sides of the chin, draw a vertical, rectangular shape. You can start to draw in the upper lip here, but I'll attack that a bit later. For now, add some detail to that giant raisin on the guy's forehead. The lines can be somewhat random here,    

Step 8.


Now that most of the large forms have been draw, we can start laying in some detail to really bring this guy to life. Starting with the forehead crest, draw some small, triangular shapes within the triangles from earlier. For *his* right eyebrow, dra   

Step 9.


At this point there are only a few facial details remaining. Draw in the line of the lower lip, using curves opposite to those of the upper lip. Wrap some lines around the lip to show that it is segmented. Continue drawing small panel lines downward    

Step 10.


Simple step, here. First draw some dots for the holes in the rim of this guy's helmet. For each eyeball, draw three concentric circles (sharing the same center) around the eye marks from Step 1. This will give us the pupil, iris and white of the eye.   

Step 11.


Here we need to erase the lines that overlapped the eyebrows and eyelids. Now this guy really looks alive. His eyes are sort of like high-tech camera shutters. Exactly like that, actually. Starting with the ... sclera... draw overlapping S-shapes as    

Step 12.


With the form drawing done, it's time to add some detail. You can spend as much time on this as you want, really. Adding dust and scratches can be very relaxing sometimes. Anyway, there are a few particular items we need to address specifically. Firs   

Step 13.


For the final step, it's just a matter of filling in the black shadow areas. Keep an eye out for any overlapping lines. I had to erase some stuff on the forehead wings and a few other areas. Even in black and white, you should have a recognizable rep
