You didn't think I was going to make a lesson on a razor blade without doing a tutorial on "how to draw a straight razor", step by step. Men who rock bald heads almost always own one of these shaving blades. They are the best thing to use when you want a shave that removes the hair right at the skin. These shaving razors give such a close shave that when the job is done, the skin ends up feeling just like a bare baby's bottom. Other names associated with this razor is open razors and cut-throat razors. The blade folds into the handle for safe storage, and it can also be sharpened by using a strop which is usually made of leather. When shaving the skin, you have to hold the blade at an angle of thirty degrees to the skin, as well as in a direction that is perpendicular to the edge of the surface being shaved. I wanted to do a Sweeney Todd style razor so it would be more appealing to tackle. If you like this type of art, you should enjoy drawing a straight razor. I will be back because there is still five more lessons that need to be submitted. Take care folks and enjoy.
