Description: Stephen Hawking, born January 8, 1942) is a British theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Among his significant scientific works have been a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularities theorems in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. (Wikipedia Notes) I would sum that he is our present-day Einstein. Let me know what you think of this tut by commenting, faving or clicking on "Love It"! Peace n love to ya!
Description: These lines are great guides to draw a. the eyebrows, b. the eyes, c. the nose, and last d. the mouth. Observe closely where his features appear on the guidelines then draw them onto your guidelines as we continue the steps.
Description: Now sketch in his eyebrows, eyeglasses, and eyes. Look closely to see where his eyes fall on the guidelines and notice the bottom of the glasses are a little over halfway down to the next guideline.
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. 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, shirt collar, and jacket with a 9B pencil very lightly. Use the pencil on it's side as in step 10 for a wider swath (coverage). The 0.7mm mech pencil is great for details such as refining the eyes, lips, and eyebrows (even eyeglasses and plaid pattern on shirt collar).
Description: It's amazing how your picture will look after blending with a tissue (much like this picture). Still, do not randomly rub over his eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth and hair. 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. The darkness in his hair (all over), shadows on his face and hair are darkened with the 9B Graphite Pencil. Adding the background and blending it makes this contrast rich and bold for our modern day Einstein, Steve Hawking! 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*
