Description: Mindless Behavior is an American boy band, best known for the singles "My Girl" and "Mrs.Right." Princeton is featured in this picture. The band was put together in Los Angeles in 2008, by Keisha Gamble, Walter Millsap, and Vincent Herbert. The band trained in dance and singing for two years before relasing a recording. They have toured with the Backstreet Boys, Justin Bieber and Jason Derulo, and was the sole opening act for Janet Jackson's 2011 tour. They have been predicted as Future Stars by This Must Be Pop! (Notes from Wikipedia). Please fav, show your love, and comment. Thank you all. Peace and love to you.
Description: I didn't want to skip this. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading large areas in wide strokes). You can practice tone shading and take it a step further with the Tone Exercise.
Description: Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But here's a TIP! Don't draw a straight line for the hairline. Do tiny strokes to represent beginning of hair at its root. Now for Prodigy's hair, dotting some of his hairline would give it realism. Look at real people and see their hairline isn't a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.
Description: It is always great to shade in your drawing lightly. You can use a circular or diagonal sketching direction to shade his face, hair, and jacket collar with a 9B pencil very lightly. Use the pencil on it's side as in step 12 for a wider swath (coverage). The 0.7mm mech pencil is great for details such as refining the eyebrows, eyes, lips, teeth and jacket seams.
Description: It's amazing how your picture will look after blending with a tissue. If you blend and erase too much, the light area in the jacket will appear like in the picture. Still, do not randomly rub over his eyebrows, eyes, nose, and mouth. His hair is easy since you'll add highlights later. Another thing, don't draw small. Draw on an A4 (or 8-1/2 by 11) paper size (like typing or copy paper). I use almost all the paper to draw in the head and neck so the shading areas are large enough to avoid important features.
Description: Here is the finished product. Shadows on his face and jacket can be darkened with the 9B Graphite Pencil. Also adding depth to his hair with the 9B is a good idea. Then you can highlight with pastel or an opaque watercolor or acrylic titanium white. You also have the option of using the kneaded eraser for the hair highlights if the above mentioned doesn't work. Same thing with the jacket. Crosshatching with white for the texture and adding the light lines for the jacket's piping makes the details pop out. Giving a background and blending it makes this contrast rich and bold for our talented Princeton of Mindless Behavior! I am closing out now. But you all have been wonderful and it has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. And I will definitely reply back soon or eventually. Love, peace, happiness, success, and more beautiful days to ya! *hug* *blowkiss*
