Step 1.

Let's start out by drawing an oval shape and the facial guidelines for Bulger's face and head.

Step 2.

Using the facial guidelines sketch in Whitey's small beady eyes which are a pale blue color. Add detailing to the upper lids and proceed to step three.

Step 3.

We will now lightly sketch in his eyebrows. Notice that there is a cold stare to his face. There should also be some sort of fold over the eye too.

Step 4.

Proceed on to sketch in Whitey Bulger's nose. His nose narrows at the bride and then flares out.

Step 5.

Up next we will tackle the task of sketching out his mouth which are the thin lips that are closed. Add the well defined frown lines along the sides of his mouth which will also help define the face shape and structure. Once that is complete add the    

Step 6.

You are ready to sketch out the shape of his face structure and then draw the hair strands to create his combed back hairstyle.

Step 7.

Now we can tackle the ears and when you do this sketch in the detailing inside of Whitey's ears.

Step 8.

To finish off the lesson, sketch out the shape of his neck, and then add detailing to the front part of the neck as well. Sketch in the shoulders and tee by drawing the tee-shirt collar and then you are ready to erase your mistakes and guides.

Step 9.

That's it. You just drew one of the most dangerous gangster in history. Color him in and show off your work.

Description: For those of you who follow the movie scene I think you will be excited to see this lesson. Today, I am going to show you how to draw Whitey Bulger or James Whitey Bulger, step by step. This tutorial was inspired by Johnny Depp's new film Black Mass which looks amazing. Johnny hasn't been doing series roles lately and when I seen the trailer for Black Mass, I have to admit I was blown away. He is a fantastic actor and for him to portray one of the most notorious gangsters in United States history, really something else. Whitey Bulger is also considered to be one of the most dangerous and lethal gangsters to live today. His life of crime started at an early age of fourteen, and from there his crime spree just continued to grow until he was the biggest gang leader in Boston's crime scene from 1976 and straight into the nineties. His ice blue eyes and white blonde colored hair made him a feared figure amongst folks who knew him or heard of him. I had a lot of fun with this lesson and I do hope you folks go out to the theater to watch 'Black Mass' when it comes out September 18th of this year. I will be back with other tuts so stick around.
