Description: Mark Salling (born August 17, 1982) is a fantastic American actor, singer-songwriter, composer, and musician. If you ever watched the TV comedy, "Glee", you would never forget him.

Go ahead, don't be shy--show me your love, comment, and fav. Thank you all for your support. Much hugs and love to you.
Description: Here's where you can focus better on his hair. Use those long strokes for his hair crowning at the top. Also the dotted technique for his shaven head, giving him the Mohawk style. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his Mowhawk. This will help as you shade it in.
Description: Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think. As you do more pictures, this will come easier to you.
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 medium gray to face. dark Medium gray to eyebrows, eye pupils, bottom of nose, side of head. Also I added dark & charcoal gray to his Mohawk 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 and black to his hair, eyebrows, eyes, and mouth. 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.
Description: I sketched and dotted in some more dark tones and details to his hair and head. With a 9B graphite and 7mm HB pencils, I added details to his eyebrows eyes nose, and mouth. I've also blended with some tissue to soften his skin and smooth his hair. As you've noticed, a background has been added. I did this with medium and light gray pastels then smoothed with a tissue. Mark appears to be shaping up!
Description: When I examined the reference picture, I noticed his complexion had more shading in it, so I added more dark gray to his shaded scalp and side of face. I looked closely at the reference as I applied the dark gray (his nose, lips lower chin, forehead... just about everywhere). Of course I took the blending stump and attempted a smooth transitional look in the planes of his face. FINALLY, I sprayed with "Krylon Workable Fixatif" to adhere the pencil & pastel to the paper for a non-smudging and workable surface. Let's check out the next step.
Description: *clap your hands!* I have finally FINISHED! I took the pure white opaque watercolor and added more highlights to his hair strands, eye sparkles, and bottom lip shine. This pastel stuff really works well on Vellum paper that's nice and smooth. I am totally satisfied. And I hope you are too with your creation. To help out with specific areas of highlights, tone, texture, etc., the next two following steps will show you.
Description: GO WITH THE FLOW: Basically, you're following the direction of object's shape, that is the hair. The hair will curl around, flow from, and slick to the head. The head is like a curved ball, so the hair extends from that ball by the arrowed directions. Keep practicing stroking in one direction, letting the pencil flow off... as if you're painting your nails or brushing off your pants. See? Play with that pencil, honey. See how those strokes FLY OFF THE PAGE. LET IT FLOW, DUDE! ***Those parts... let little strokes of hair (roots) appear at the edge of the parts. Click on this picture and see those tiny strokes.
