How to Draw Chuck Norris, Chuck Norris

how to draw chuck norris, chuck norris step 1

STEP 1.

Start out by picking your pencils. I used a 4H pencil for light shading/lines, an HB pencil for shading, a B pencil for darker shading/lines, and a 6B pencil for the darkest shading. You can use whichever pencil works best for you to sketch. I used a 6B pencil.

Start finishing up the hat by working on its outline. 6B may be to soft for outlining the hat so use a B pencil instead to make the hat's edges crisp.
