I already wrote about and submitted a tutorial on Huey Freeman from “The Boondocks” with my first tutorial. I figured that I would do a tutorial on his eight year old brother because he is cool looking. So right now I will be showing you how to draw Riley Freeman from “The Boondocks” step by step. Now even though Huey and Riley are brothers, they both express their inner anger in totally different ways. Riley likes to “keep it gangsta” which means he tries to stay “real” to himself and other people he gets acquainted with. Riley has the typical style of any hard core gangsta; he wears over sized tee’s baggy jeans, and a pair of Timberlands or other boots that look similar to the name brand. He keeps his hair in neat corn-rows and tries to stay as clean as possible. In one episode he wanted to get real ghetto so he changed his last name from Riley to Escobar. He loves listening to rap and because of that his personality is rap culture based. One of his favorite idols that he looks up to is 50 Cent and he previously placed a temporary tattoo on his body that said “Thug Blood”. Unfortunately though the tattoo winded up getting washed off and all he was left with was the phrase “Hug Boo”, and that is not a tough sounding gangsta phrase at all. His character portrayal is sometimes funny because he tries to be too gangsta. Instead of keeping a low profile by not getting into trouble like his big brother Huey, Riley is almost always getting into trouble which is what a majority of the episodes are about. Because he is so driven by gangsta rap, his decisions are influenced by the songs he listens to. Riley is also his granddad's right hand man when they try and pull off different schemes that are concocted by the two. Huey thinks his brother is just another misguided black youth and he tries to knock some sense into him on occasion. Even though I don’t watch the show too much, I still like Riley and Granddad because they can sometimes be hilarious. There was this one episode where Granddad was dating a prostitute for a while and her pimp eventually came and got her. The pimp is sometimes seen in various episodes wearing a genuine purple pimped out suit with the feather in the hat and all. This is a fun tutorial to tackle and I hope you like learning how to draw Riley Freeman from “The Boondocks step by step. I will be back in a while with some more fun tutorials so stay seated and stay drawing until I return.
