I love this actor, Mark Wahlberg (born June 5, 1971). I never realized he was formerly known as Marky Mark and the Funky bunch. Now he is an American actor, film and television producer. Check this out, as Marky Mark in his earlier years, he became famous for his 1991 debut as a musician with the band Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. He was named No. 1 on VH1's 40 Hottest Hotties of the 90's. Buff body, good looks, and a tough dude, giving him that razor edge, Mark has become well known for his roles in films such as Boogie Nights (1997), Three Kings (1999), The Perfect Storm (2000), Planet of the Apes (2001), The Italian Job (2003), I Heart Huckabees (2004), Four Brothers (2005), The Departed (2006), Invincible (2006), Shooter (2007), and The Fighter (2010). He has also served as the executive producer of the TV series Entourage, Boardwalk Empire and How to Make It in America. That's my boy! I'm sooo proud to do this handsome man's tutorial. I had to chose a picture that sported his assets. Peeps fav, comment or vote and let me know what you think. Peace out!

How to Draw Mark Wahlberg, Mark Wahlberg

how to draw mark wahlberg, mark wahlberg step 1

STEP 1.

First start with this oval for Mark's face. For his shoulders, draw the small hill. Draw the red lines representing his arms then the ovals for his hands. Of course, don't forget to bisect this guide with the line vertically slanted line. Draw lightly with your No.2 or HB pencil so you can erase easily later.

STEP 2.

The red crescent outer line is a placement for the crown of Mark's head. The crescent line inside his face represents his hairline. The a) line is for his eyebrows, b) line for his eyes, c) line for his nose, and d) line for his mouth.

STEP 3.

Draw in lightly his eyebrows, eyes, and nose. Compare to where they fall on the lines. Also check your drawing to see if it matches for accuracy.

STEP 4.

Now draw in his right ear facing you, then work down the his face. Observe how between his nose and mouth, the side of his face has a little hump. Add his mouth and jawline. And try drawing lightly his forehead wrinkles.

Lightly sketch in his hair, ear, neck, and shoulders. Also shade within his neck and add the shadow on his shoulder from his face.

STEP 6.

Here is the fun part, that is drawing his mighty biceps. Gotta love it! Make sure you get those folds on his t-shirt! It tells you he's nicely built, pecs & all! Warning! Don't become impatient. That is your enemy. Take your time and focus on his hands and draw them. Look at your picture and this reference to make sure they line up and look natural.

Even if your picture doesn't look like this drawing, don't worry. We all have learning curves and I want to congratulate you on completing this tutorial thus far. Those of you who would like to continue, you know what to expect... a full pencil drawing.

Before we go any further, I want to mention some tools I used, which is the famous white acrylic and also sandpaper. Right before I shaded, I used a textured notebook cover and sandpaper while shading Mark's t-shirt. You will see what I mean in the upcoming steps. But before that, I want to show you some great uses of a pencil.

STEP 10.

The picture that goes with this Step 10 shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/detailed strokes. UNDERHAND: Holding the pencil at a 45 degrees or near level to the table with end of pencil under your palm with pencil on the flat side, gives you large shading coverage. With the No.2 pencil, you have the exposed lead side to shade with. But for a wider swath, use that Cretacolor Monolith graphite pencil with no wood casing. The whole sharpened portion is all lead, like in the step's picture. Practice the toning values to help you with control.

PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.

The picture here is a great exercise for value shading. I've got a little secret tip for you to make things easier. You can download this to your desktop. First click on the picture to have access to full size. By right clicking on your mouse, you can select "Save Image As." It should save to your desktop.

STEP 13.

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.

STEP 14.

This step and the following include techniques for detailed pencil drawing. You can use line strokes, sketching, to fill in Mark Wahlberg. However, I have found you can save up to two hours with firm pastel color sticks, ranging from light, medium, to dark gray. I also used the texture notebook and sandpaper for his t-shirt's grainy look.

STEP 15.

I rubbed very lightly with a tissue to blend and fill in. What is so wonderful about the pastel is that when you blend with it, it covers without losing the pencil detail. I also used a blending stump for tinier areas and for shading. The really dark areas, I used a 9B pencil. Afterward, I sprayed the picture with a workable fixative (Krylon). The spray adheres the pastel to the paper so it will not smudge. After the fixative dries, you can work more on your picture. This is the first layer with spray fixative.

STEP 16.

Here, I applied the 9B pencil for darkness on his hair, dark area on his face and back. He looks almost finished. But you know me, I have to add back ground.

STEP 17.

Did I tell you how much I love the gray grades of pastels? Here, my background only took a few minutes to cover with no circular or straight sketchy marks! And you barely brush your paper with a tissue to get amazing results. Satisfied, I sprayed a second time with Krylon Workable Fixatif! After I scanned and saw how flat my poor Mark looked. I fumed, knowing I had to do more shading and brightness to make him "pop out."

STEP 18.

Here is the end result. I went over his hair again, looking closely at the reference picture. And I added some highlights. As you can see the background looks more lively. I've given a darker sketchy shadow going up to give the background movement. Also I've shaded his t-shirt more in the dark areas, added lighter pastels on his upper shoulder bulge. And added a highlight line where the dark shaded area is on his back to act as reflective light. I also touched up his arms and hand so they would not look flat. Tip! Since his face look awfully flat in the other picture, I brushed some white pastel on his forehead cheeks, nose so the shaded areas on his face would have more depth. The next two steps will have pointers on highlights, shading, tone & texture.
