Artist: catlucker / June 4, 2012

Step 1.

Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.

Now draw in the bisecting red line to balance his facial features.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, and d. for mouth placements.

Step 5.

Now draw Chris's eyebrows and eyes.

Step 6.

Observe where Chris's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, mustache growth, and mouth.

Step 7.

Watch closely how Chris's face outline, jawline, chin, and a bit of beard growth relate to the guidelines. Don't forget to also draw the shadow line of his face on the left side facing you. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.

Step 8.

When you sketch his hair, add those straight lines and curls. And use short, jagged lines for his parted hair at the top of his head, hairline, and sideburns at his ear. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This wi   

Step 9.

Now draw in the back of his hair, neck and shirt collar. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 11.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Take you kneaded eraser and dab off the shadow outlines or dark    

Step 12.

Before we go any further, I want to mention some tools I used, which is the famous white acrylic (this time white opaque watercolor) and also sandpaper. During the shading process on Chris's shirt and tunic top, I used 180-grit sandpaper and rubbed o   

Step 13.

The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/det   

Step 14.

PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.

Step 15.

Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But he

The picture here is a great exercise for value shading. I've got a little secret tip for you to make things easier. You can download this to your desktop. First click on the picture to have access to full size. By right clicking on your mouse, you ca   

Step 17.

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.

Step 18.

This is the first start with the pastel application. If you do the whole picture in a pencil sketch, this is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I c   

Step 19.

Here I used my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more shading to his hair eyebrows, side of face, neck and shirt with the pastels. I smoothed the lighter gray in his face with a tissue. After that, I sprayed the picture with "Krylon Workabl   

Step 20.

I sketched in more facial hairs with my 9B and 0.7mm pencils. With the 0.7mm mechanical pencil (HB lead), I defined the hair strands, darkened his eyebrows, eyes, and added more facial hair. I applied 9B to darkly shaded areas in his hair, face, and    

Step 21.

I covered the top portion of my background with medium gray pastels. I smoothed the background with a tissue. I also added more texture to his collar & tunic with my 9B pencil.

Step 22.

"Faint!" I could do the dance of joy. I have finally FINISHED!!! Basically, I added more highlights with Opaque Watercolor to the catch lights in his eyes, added more light hair strands for that cool long haircut. I added more light texture to his co   

Step 23.

Without highlights, your picture would have a flat appearance. Click on this picture to learn how to make your own picture POP out!
