Step 1.

So here is a step by step lesson on drawing Shane as he appears in zombie or walker form. Start with the shape for the head, then add some facial guidelines. You will begin sketching out the structure of the head and face like so, then draw in the ea   

Step 2.

Now how about a profile of zombie Shane. Add a circle for the head then draw the cone shape for the chin or jaw structure. Sketch out the profile of his face structure followed by his eye, and all the detailing that covers the nose, mouth inside the    

Step 3.

Now let's draw Shane as we first knew him. Start with an oblong shape for the head then sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the shoulder and neck guides.

Step 4.

Using the shape you just made, begin sketching out Shane's face structure as well as his hair line right at the base. The lining should be spiked and short.

Using the facial guides draw out the eyes. Shane has the nose of a boxer so you will need to sketch out the shape of his nose, then draw the top line for his lip. Sketch in detailing to the nose like so, then proceed to step six.

We will move onto finishing the mouth which can be done by adding some simple mouth lines in a contour form. Add all the definition around the lower portion of the face as well as detail around the eyes.

Step 7.

It's now time to sketch out the rest of Shane's hairstyle which is a very simple combed back style. The edging of the outer hair line should also be pointed or sharp. Sketch the ears into shape, add detailing on the forehead, between the eyes, and in   

Step 8.

Description: Yup, I had to do it. As I watched The Walking Dead from the first season to the third, I realized that Shane was such an awesome character that shouldn't have been killed off so early. He is, or was one of my favorite characters from the series even if he did go a little crazy towards the end. Shane Walsh cared very much for Rick and his family even before he started messing around with Lori. I really wanted to capture Shane's look which is serious, stern, and vengeful. I didn't think that I was going to be able to create the look of Shane, but I did. Anyways, some may feel that Shane was dead weight, but to me I feel that is not even possible. That's all I have for this lesson on drawing Shane Walsh, have fun and stick around for more tuts coming your way. Peace out folks.
