How to Draw The Janoskians, The Janoskians

Step 1.

Since there are five ovals to place on one page, I made this pre-placement step to help you see where they go on the paper. The gray are nearly evenly spaced. Observe the sizes on the ovals and where they go. Now the two slanted lines give you the sl   

Step 2.

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

Step 3.

Now draw in the bisecting line to balance their facial features.

Step 4.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass. Notice the middle head at the top. I gave one crescent.

Step 5.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. for mouth, and e. for shoulders. I labeled one head to lessen clutter.

Step 6.

Now draw in the Janoskians' eyebrows, and eyes.

Step 7.

Observe where their features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in their noses, smile lines, and mouths.

Step 8.

Now draw in the profile of their jawlines and chins. Remember to draw two faces that have ears showing. Also the third face from the bottom to your left has a hand instead of a face profile. Please draw the hand.

Step 9.

Watch closely their cap outlines, brims, ridges, and "OBEY" letters relate to the guidelines. Now look closely at how the lines of their hair flow together within the guidelines. Take your time to draw those waves. As you draw, you will have more ac   

Step 10.

Now draw in their shoulders, hands, T-shirt folds, jackets and whatever else you can find in the picture. Take your time because it was a challenge for me to get all the details in. That is why this tutorial is categorized ADVANCED. I'd say, erase yo   

Step 11.

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 12.

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 13.

I didn't want to skip this. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading large areas in wide strokes). You can practice tone shading and take it a step further with the To   

Step 14.

Here is how the tools look. I used the 0.7mm 2B mechanical pencil, 9B pencil, tissue, and the blending stump.

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   

Step 16.

Since the boys are wearing a hat, I would like to give you a drawing tip. An easy way to get the hat right is to draw the crown to fit directly over the skull, not the hair, no matter what angle is used for the hat as you can see from the picture. Ch   

Step 17.

This is the first start. 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 chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied   

Step 18.


Step 19.

I sketched in darker with my 0.7mm mechanical and 9B pencil their eyes & mouths. I placed my 9B pencil flat and barely touching the paper went over the darker areas in the folds and shadows of their jackets and t-shirts. Between the shadowed hat brim   

Step 20.

Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I first blended the pencil sketches with my toritillon to give a smooth transition. I added more dark tones and details to their caps (like definin   

Step 21.

Here I added lots of highlights in the letters on his cap from looking at the reference picture. You can do this with white pastel, white titanium acrylic or watercolor paint. I also lightened their jaw areas and smoothed it more by blurring with my

Description: The Nanoskians (Jai, Beau, Luke, James & Daniel) are a YouTube comedy group, pranksters, singers, entertainers, and stunt performers based in Melbourne Australia. The group of home-grown Melbourne stuntment began posting comedy videos on YouTube in September 2011. While describing themselves as "just a group of hopeless kids with no future taking on the streets of Melbourne", the boys have already caught attention from Justin Bieber, One Direction's Liam Payne, and Ellen DeGeneres. (Wikipedia Notes) This tutorial has five faces on one page. Yep, it's challenging and took me a bit longer to do, but I love the results and their poses. You can do one face up to the whole group, whichever you prefer. I hope you will enjoy drawing this tutorial. Please fav, show your love, and comment. Thank you all. Peace and love to you.
