How to Draw Aristotle, Aristotle

how to draw aristotle, aristotle step 1

STEP 1.

First, let's start with the basic guidelines for the face shape of Aristotle. I suggest drawing these guidelines lightly to prevent from pencil marks on the paper when you erase.

STEP 2.

Next, draw the face shape for Aristotle. I advise drawing the hairline first, then the shape of the cheek bones and the fluffed beard/chin. It's important we draw the face shape first so that the facials will be much easier to proportion.

STEP 3.

Then, draw the shadowy eyebrows and eye. Work from left to right (vice versa if you're left handed). I usually work on one eye at a time before I move onto the next. Sketch from top to bottom as well.

STEP 4.

Let's work on the beard area, using small lines for the definition. I would recommend working on the nose before you jump into the detailing of the beard. Get the nose and mouth draw proportionally and then work on the beard/mustache.

Next, we'll work on the shape of the head, which is basically tapered lines that slightly and simply define the presence of hair. Take your time and use thick lines for the head line art.

Once you have your sketch done, be sure to ALWAYS review your lines and make sure that everything is in place like you intended it to. Go ahead and ink over your drawing using nice variations in line weights. Remember, use thicker lines for the areas that have the most of darkest shadows. I hope you guys enjoyed this one! Peace and love.
