Description: Ariana Grande (born June 26, 1993) is an upcoming star, already an American actress, singer, and dancer. After she played her in first Broadway role amazingly at the age of 15, she created the role of Cat Valentine in the American sitcom Victorious, which is still running on the Nickelodeon channel. Talk about realizing your dream, I think she achieved it at an early age. I've seen the program a couple of times and enjoyed it. I am glad to submit this tutorial to you. I hope you have learned something from "How to Draw Adriana Grande." Go ahead, don't be shy--vote, comment, and fav. Thank you all for your support. Much hugs and love to you.
Description: Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture. The left side facing us is flatter than the rest of the oval shape. Notice how the chin slants to the left.
Description: Finally you can draw that juicy ponytail. Look closely at how the lines flow as you did with the rest of the drawing. Take your time. Patience is your best friend because with it, you'll be able to complete your drawing.
Description: This time Acrylics has won! Sandpaper, the new kid on the block has to take a back seat to my wonderful Titanium White or Opaque White Watercolors for HIGHLIGHTS! Yaaaa! Try it, you'll like it!
Description: 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/detailed strokes. UNDERHAND: Holding the pencil at a 45 degrees or near level to the table with end of pencil under your palm with pencil on the flat side, gives you large shading coverage. With the No.2 pencil, you have the exposed lead side to shade with. But for a wider swath, use that Cretacolor Monolith graphite pencil with no wood casing. The whole sharpened portion is all lead, like in the step's picture. Practice the toning values to help you with control.
Description: 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.
Description: 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 can select "Save Image As." It should save to your desktop
Description: 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.
Description: 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 light medium gray to face. Medium gray to eyebrows, eye shadow, side of nose and hair. Also I added dark gray and black to her hair. Looks like a mess. That's how a beginning project will appear. Keep patience with you and you'll have a great outcome.
Description: I added some more dark gray to her hair and eyes. What's interesting is I haven't used a pencil yet during this stage. I took a blending stump (since it won't leave lines and will cover a larger area) and shaded laying the stump tapered part flat (like a pencil). Then I took it's point and “drew” with it's pointed edge in the smaller areas. I will be using a pencil soon for darkening and very refined areas. TONE: Remember to keep the teeth and eyes white. Then I sprayed with "Krylon Workable Fixatif" to adhere the pencil & pastel to the paper for a non-smudging and workable surface.
Description: I sketched in some more dark tones and details to her hair, face, and neck with a 9B graphite pencil. For fine details in her hairline, eyebrows, and eyes, I used a .07mm mechanical pencil. At this point, I have not blended this layer. Adriana is shaping up.
Description: As you can tell, I added background. This is with a 9B graphite pencil and some tissue paper rubbing. I darkened with some more 9B graphite and dark gray pastels. I added light pastel to the shine in her hair and parts of her face for a smoother look. Now I have given her the second coat of SPRAY!
Description: Basically, I added more highlights with Opaque Watercolor to the catch lights in her eyes, added more light stray hairs and shine, gave a little shine on her upper & lower lips--looks like lip gloss to me. Now Adriana "pops" out! To help out with specific areas of highlights, tone, texture, etc., the next two following steps will show you.

But you all have been wonderful and it has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and vote here. And I will definitely reply back soon or eventually. Love, peace, happiness, success, and more beautiful days to ya! *hug* *blowkiss*
