Step 1.

Let us begin drawing Whitney shall we. Start with a circle for her head and then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Using the facial guides, begin drawing her eyes, and make sure the lining for her eyes are thick and or bold. Next, sketch in her long lush lashes, and then move to step three.

Step 3.

Next, sketch in the creases or folds for the eyelids, and then color in her pupils. You will also need to draw the nicely shaped eyebrows as well as color them in solid instead of making them look realistic. Add some wrinkle under the eyes and move o   

Step 4.

The only think you have to do here is sketch in Whitney Houston's nose.

Step 5.

As you know Whitney is almost always seen smiling with a great big friendly smile. Draw her smile as well as her top and bottom lip.

Step 6.

Draw the gum line as well as her amazingly straight teeth. You will also need to color in the inside of her mouth to bring her smile to life.

Step 7.

Alright, sketch out the shape of her oblong face, and then begin drawing in her curly locks. Start at the top and then make some beautiful simple curls.

Step 8.

Draw the shape of her neck, right shoulder and her tee-shirt strap. Finish drawing her hair which should be curly and chunky. I wanted to draw Whitney Houston as she looked back in the eighties because it seems that is when she was happiest judging b   

Step 9.

When all is said and done you should end up with a drawing that looks like the one you see here. Color her in and show folks what you have created.

Description: I’m sure everyone has heard that one of the world’s most famous singers, songwriters, actress, and performers has passed away. She was only forty eight years old, but she will be remembered for always. Since I know a lot of people will want to tackle this tutorial, I wanted to make sure that everyone would be able to take on such a fantastic task. So today I will be showing you "how to draw Whitney Houston", step by step. Whitney was born on August 9, 1963 in Newark, New Jersey and she was brought up in a middle income household. Her father was John Houston and her mother was Cissy Houston. When Whitney was only eleven years old she began singing in the church choir. She also had the privilege to learn how to play the piano as well as sing in the junior gospel of the New Hope Baptist Church. She started singing professionally when she was only fourteen years old as a backup singer for Michael Zager Band. Later on over a few years, Whitney started modeling in magazines like Seventeen, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan. She also starred in a Canada Dry commercial, and after her work with posing in magazines, Whitney Houston became a popular face that people wanted on the covers of their magazines. Her innocent looks, and girly charisma made it that much easier for her to get recognized even quicker. Even though she has been around for years, I will always remember her for the songs that my mother used to play over and over again; “How will I Know, Greatest Love of All, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, Didn’t We Almost Have it All, So Emotional, Where do Broken Hearts Go, and my personal favorite, I Will Always Love You” from the movie she did with Kevin Costner The Body Guard. I think you guys will find that drawing Whitney Houston is going to be a whole lot easier than you thought it could be. I do hope you have fun with this lesson; I did enjoy making it as a tribute to Whitney Houston. Thanks guys and enjoy!
