How to Draw Andrea, Andrea from The Walking Dead, Laurie Holden

Step 1.

Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.

Now draw in the bisecting red line to balance her facial features.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. and for mouth.

Step 5.

Now draw in Andrea's eyes and eyebrows.

Step 6.

Observe where Andrea's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in the her nose and mouth.

Step 7.

Watch closely how Andrea's face outline, jawline, and chin relate to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.

Step 8.

Since she has a lot of hair, I did one half portion for you. When you sketch her hair, add those straight lines and curls. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of the hair flow. This will help if you decide to shade it in.

Step 9.

Now draw in the second portion of the hair in this step. Don't forget the part of her neck and shoulder. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you. If you want you can either color it in or shade it. Next step has different types of pencils you can use.

Step 11.

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.

Step 12.

Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But here's a TIP! Don't draw a straight line for the hairline. Do tiny strokes to represent beginning of hair at its root. Look at real people and see their hairline isn't a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.

Step 13.

Here is the final result of shading for an example. It has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. Love, peace, happiness & success! *blowkiss*

This Andrea (played brilliantly by Laurie Holden), who is a vital member of Rick Grimes group. I have noticed throughout the series she tends to hook up with the arch enemies of Rick (she's clueless). Though she's gorgeous, she has a fettish to shoot and fight the zombies. Her current status is: ALIVE! With this very popular comic book, game, and TV show, you either love it or hate it. This AMC television series is one of the best TV shows of all times. Let me know what you think of this more simplified tut by commenting, faving or clicking on "Love It"! Peace n love to ya!
