Description: Well guys, I went ahead and did it. I made a tutorial of one of America's most recognized faces that became popular with the television series, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. For my second lesson, I will fill a request, and show you guys, and girls, "<strong>how to draw Kim Kardashian</strong>", step by step. After sketching out the portrait for Ms. Kardashian, I realized that the hardest part to completing her face and or look, was sketching out her long, straight hair, and her smoky bold eyes. Even though there is not a lot of detail to her face because most of the time it seems to be flawless, she has intense eyes, and because of this I had to make sure that I conveyed that through art. Before we get on to the lesson, I thought I would talk a bit about who this reality show star is, and where she came from. As you know Kim is a woman of many talents, and even though people view her as being a person that lives her life a bit on the wild side, she is a very savoy business person. First off, she was born Kimberly Noel Kardashian on October 21, 1980 which makes her twenty nine years old. Her mother is Kris Jenner, and her stepfather is the popular athlete, Bruce Jenner. Before she obtained a stepfather, her real dad was one of O.J. Simpson's defense attorney's Robert Kardashian. He died in 2003 of esophageal cancer. She has three full blooded siblings who are Kourtney, Khloe, and Robert, two half sisters, Kendall and Kylie, and stepbrothers Burton, Brandon, and Brody. Now, a lot of people have wondered what Kim Kardashians heritage is to try and put a nationality behind that pretty face. After searching, I found out that her father was Armenian, and her mother is of Scottish, Dutch, and Native American descent. No wonder why her hair is jet black huh? Anyways, besides being one of the stars of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she has also appeared on "Dancing With the Stars" as one of the thirteen competitors, but unfortunately, she was voted off the show after her third appearance. Apart from knowing how to dance, she is also the producer of "SPINdustry" which is another reality show, and she is also writing a book with her two sisters called "Kardashian Konfidential" which is due to be released in November of 2010. Kim has also modeled for Playboy Magazine, Bongo Jeans, Balenciaga, Famous Stars and Straps, and much, much more. Did you know that Kim Kardashian is so popular for her curves that a cupcake was named after her? It's true, a place called “Famous Cupcakes" created her own delicious desert called Va-Va-Va-Nilla. This mix is named after Kim, and if you are ever in the Los Angeles area, be sure to look up the bakery and try her out. Anyways, I guess I said enough, I think its time that you get busy with this tutorial on “"<strong><em>how to draw Kim Kardashian</em></strong>", step by step. The secret to getting a nicely sketched drawing of this beautiful celebrity, is to take your time, and really follow the steps. I will be back later with some more drawing fun. Peace out people!
Description: From here in out, you will need to start lightly sketching with your pencil, or what ever other tool you are using. This is so it will be easy to erase any mistakes that are made along the way. The next step is to sketch out the front style of her hair which is the parting or framing lines. Kim's hair almost always frames her face. Next, use the facial guidelines you drew in step one to start sketching out the eye lines, nose, and lips.
Description: Continue to sketch out an outline of her long, full hairstyle like you see here, and be sure that it goes past her shoulders which you can not see, There is also two circular lines that will later be used for her oversized hooped earrings. Once that is all done, sketch out the shape of her neck, and define her chin a whole lot better.
Description: It's now time to start the sketching process of her eyebrows. Now, unlike other stars, Kim has nicely shaped, somewhat thick eyebrows compared to some of the stars you see today. Instead of a thinned out look, Kim goes for a full look which is I think a lot better. When the eyebrows are done, you can continue to sketch out her eyes, and then the rest of her lips.
Description: You are almost done guys. Before you start sketching out her eyelashes, you will need to sketch in her top eyelids like so. When that is done, take your time to begin the sketching process of her lashes, and be sure that they are long, thick, and bold. Add some definition to the bridge of her nose, and above the lips. Draw an opening in her mouth which will later be for her cracked smile.
Description: It's now time to draw out her large earrings, and color in her eyes like so. Before you do any sort of shading like you see here, you will need to start erasing the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up your drawing. When this is done you can start the shading process which will add texture, detail, and definition to Kim's face. Add shadowing under her chin, and under her eyes like you see here, and then begin coloring in her long dark straight hair. Take your time until you are happy with the results.
Description: When you're done, you should have a nicely drawn sketch that looks like the one you see here. I hope you enjoyed learning how to draw Kim Kardashian, step by step. You can choose to color her in, or leave her as a sketch. I know you guys did a great job!
