Hey folks I'm back today with another lesson but this time instead of starting off with an animal or star, I thought we could have some fun by tackling the task of drawing another internet meme. Here is "how to draw You Don't Say", step by step. The rage comic meme 'You Don't Say' was actually created or based on Nicolas Cage's character from a movie he did back in 1988 called 'Vampires Kiss'. It was a very goofy and entertaining film about a character named Peter Loew (played by cage) who was going crazy and thought without a doubt that he was turning into a vampire. The saying “You don't say” is actually a phrase that the character says in the film. An outlined drawing of Cage's character was created to mimic Peter Loew. The meme first appeared on Roflrazz on August 15, 2009. Later, the contour drawing depicting Cage's character appeared in a rage comic which was uploaded by a user named 'LeechHax'. It had gotten so popular that You Don't Say was appearing almost everywhere. This is a really cool lesson on drawing Nicolas Cage as an internet meme. If you are familiar with this rage comic star, you should enjoy tackling this tut. I still have some other stuff that needs to be uploaded so stay tuned in for a while longer to see what I have in store for you all. Peace out people!

STEP 6.

Lastly, color in the pupils with no iris' to give this meme a very expressive look. Add the frown lines around the mouth, then add detailing to form the face, inside the ear, and on the chin. Color inside the mouth, then erase your mistakes if made any at all.
