Wes Craven Drawing Tutorial

Artist: Dawn / September 2, 2015

Step 1.

Let's begin by making the shape of his head followed by the facial guidelines like you see here.

Step 2.

Using the head guide begin sketching out the actual face structure for Wes' face and head. Also sketch in the hair line along the forehead.

Step 3.

We will now utilize the facial guidelines to sketch in the thick eyebrows. Color them in and add the crinkle between the brows. Once that is done draw the nose and frown lines from the sides of the nostrils.

Step 4.

We will now sketch in Wes' eyes as well as the mouth. Lightly sketch in the wrinkles around the eyes and the indent on his cheek. Don't forget to add the indent also on the side of his nose near the eye.

Step 5.

We will now sketch in his facial hair which is the mustache and full beard.

Step 6.

Lastly, finish drawing Wes' hairstyle which is combed back and pretty full. Add the detailing to his hair, draw the shape of his neck and then draw the shoulders and shirt collar. Erase all your mistakes as well as the guides.

Step 7.

That's it, you are all done. Just color in the drawing you just made on Wes Craven.

Description: An iconic figure passed away a couple days ago and even though I should have done a tutorial on him a while back, it wasn't until today that I had the actual time I wanted to make a lesson on drawing Wes Craven, step by step. As almost all of you know, Wes Craven was responsible for the creation of a series of "Slasher Films" such as the movie franchise 'A Nightmare Before Christmas', he also directed four of the Scream movies, The People Under the Stairs, The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes 1 & 2, and so many more. Wes Craven died at the age of 76 from brain cancer. This lesson is dedicated to him and the magical job that he did when he created all those cult classic slasher films. R.I.P. Wes, may you rest peacefully under the night sky.
