How to Draw The Terminator, Draw Arnold Schwarzenegger

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 a long rectangular without a bottom. Then draw the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.


You can draw in the lines a. for top of sunglasses, b. for middle of glasses, c. for bottom of glasses, d. for nose, e. for mouth, f. for shoulder placements.

Step 5.


Now draw in Arnold, the terminator's, sunglasses and nose with shadow lines.

Step 6.


Observe where Aronld's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his mouth, cheek lines, and shadow lines of his chin.

Step 7.


Watch closely how Arnold's facial lines, cheeks, and jawlines relate to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.

Step 8.


When you sketch in his hair, add those feathery straight lines. There are no curls for the terminator *wink*. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair (add his ear lobe). This will help as you shade it in. The reason fo   

Step 9.


Now draw in his shoulder and gun. Sometimes I used a straight edge (ruler) to get those lines straight. 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. Observe how there are more details, like the dots. Be patient wi   

Step 12.


This time Acrylics has won! Sandpaper, the new kid on the block has to take a back seat to my wonderful Titanium White. White pastels or Opaque White Watercolors also are a great help with HIGHLIGHTS! Yaaaa! Try it, you'll like it!

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.


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 16.


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 17.


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 18.


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 19.


   

Step 20.


I sketched in darker with my 0.7mm mechanical and 9B pencil his hair, eyes, nose, mouth, gun, and neck. I placed my 9B pencil flat and barely touching the paper went over the darker side of her face. Between the shadowed hair strands, I used the poin   

Step 21.


Basically, I blended the sketch lines with my stump trying to match the shadows with my reference pic. I added more shading to his face, cheeks, and neck. I took my kneaded eraser and highlighted the shiny areas on his gun. I defined his nose more wi   

Step 22.


I made sure to add some white opaque watercolor paint to his hair strands, brighter catch on the sunglasses, and lip definition. Also I mixed some white gouches watercolor to ink to define the mechanical eye light with dots and lines. All this added    

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!
