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

STEP 8.

When you sketch his hair, dot it in. Try staying close to getting in the v-shape parts of his scalp. This will help as you shade it in more.

Now draw in his jacket's collar and shoulders. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

STEP 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.
 
how to draw prodigy, prodigy from mindless behavior step 11

STEP 11.

I didn't want to skip this. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading large areas in wide strokes). You can practice tone shading and take it a step further with the Tone Exercise.

STEP 12.

Here is how the tools look. I used the 0.7mm 2B mechanical pencil, 9B pencil, tissue, and the blending stump.

STEP 13.

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. Now for Prodigy's hair, dotting some of his hairline would give it realism. Look at real people and see their hairline isn't a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.
 
how to draw prodigy, prodigy from mindless behavior step 14

STEP 14.

It is always great to shade in your drawing lightly. You can use a circular or diagonal sketching direction to shade his face, hair, and jacket collar with a 9B pencil very lightly. Use the pencil on it's side as in step 10 for a wider swath (coverage). The 0.7mm mech pencil is great for details such as refining the eyes, lips, and eyebrows (even sunglasses frame).
 
how to draw prodigy, prodigy from mindless behavior step 15

STEP 15.

It's amazing how your picture will look after blending with a tissue (much like this picture, though I went a little darker). Still, do not randomly rub over his eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth and hair. Another thing, don't draw small. Draw on an A4 (or 8-1/2 by 11) paper size (like typing or copy paper). I use almost all the paper to draw in the head and neck so the shading areas are large enough to avoid important features.

STEP 16.

Here is the finished product. The darkness in his hair (all over), shadows on his face, jacket, and sunglasses are darkened with the 9B Graphite Pencil. Adding the background and blending it makes this contrast rich and bold for our talented Prodigy of Mindless Behavior! I am closing out now. But you all have been wonderful and it has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. And I will definitely reply back soon or eventually. Love, peace, happiness, success, and more beautiful days to ya! *hug* *blowkiss*
