Last night I was thinking about some famous faces I could make tutorials out of. The two I chose are both fantastic writers but one is more epic than the first. Both of these writers have unique ways of speaking to the reader, and they both have, and had eccentric personalities. To start the day off with something cool, I will be first showing you "how to draw Stephen King", step by step. He is one of my favorite writers, but shame on me because I haven’t read enough of his novels as I should have. I like reading the book on something before it becomes a movie because you can pick up on the differences and improvises that screenwriters and directors made when they created the movie versions of great stories derived from fiction. One of my all-time favorite books from Mr. King is definitely The Shining, The Thing, Pet Cemetery, Carrie, Christine, Salem’s Lot, Misery, and so many more. I’m sure that many of you know that Steven King bases almost all his stories in the state of Maine and it’s mainly because he grew up in Maine. He went to Lisbon Falls High School, and he also graduated from Lisbon Falls. In 1966 Steven King attended University of Maine and in 1970 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English. As of today he resides in Bangor, Maine, and he shares his life with his wife Tabitha, and he has three children who are also writers and their names are Naomi, Owen, and Joe. To date King has written forty nine novels, around nine short stories, and at least five non-fiction titles. He often makes cameo appearances in some of the books that where turned into movies like the Sleepwalkers where he is a cemetery caregiver. Anyways, I tried to make him as simple as possible to replicate, and I think I succeeded in this task. I hope you enjoy drawing Stephen King, because I had lots of fun drawing him out even if the coloring took me four hours. Thanks people and enjoy.
