You can draw in the lines a. for top of sunglasses, b. for bottom of sunglasses, c. for nose, and d. for mouth.

STEP 5.

Now draw in the left side of the sunglasses facing you. I did this so you can focus on drawing the circles and not be overwhelmed. Also this is the reason why I categorized this as advanced.

STEP 6.

Here is the other side of the sunglasses. Now sketch in the circles. Once you have done them, the shading will be easier.

Examine where her nose and mouth appear in relation to the guidelines. Go ahead and sketch them in.

STEP 8.

Now look closely at how the spiked lines of his hair appears on the guidelines. Take your time. Remember to draw his ears. Patience is your best friend because with it, you'll be able to complete your drawing.

STEP 9.

Last but not least, draw in his jawline with his facial hair. Make sure you draw in his neck and neck line. If you haven't already, you can now erase your guidelines. The lines you couldn't erase, go ahead and blend them in if you will be shading your drawing.

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.

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. Look at real people and see their hairline isn't a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.

STEP 14.

This is the first start with the pastel application. If you do the whole picture in a pencil sketch, this is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied medium & dark gray to his face, glasses, and neck. I applied charcoal gray to his hair, upper lip, under his nose, and the side of his face. Looks like a mess, but that's how a some beginning projects will appear. Keep patience with you and keep applying those layers of whites, grays & blacks. You'll have a great outcome.

STEP 15.

Here I used my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, added shading to his face and a little to his sunglasses.

STEP 16.

I darkened the areas outside of the small disks on his sunglasses, added facial hair details, and darkened his neck with my 9B and 0.7mm pencils. With the 0.7mm mechanical pencil (HB lead), I defined the shaded areas within each disc decoration on his sunglasses.

STEP 17.

Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I added more dark tones and details to his hair, face, and neck with a 9B graphite pencil. I've also blended with some tissue to soften his skin and smooth his hair.

STEP 18.

I kept building the drawing with more 9B and No.2 pencil drawing. I added more hair detail. The sunglasses I kept working on adding more accurate shading. Also I added more facial hair.

STEP 19.

Here I added lots of highlights on his sunglasses disks from the reference picture. You can do this with white pastel, white titanium acrylic or watercolor paint. I lightened his skin in my editing program. I also added the lighter facial hair and gave a background. I am closing out now. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on the talented Calvin Harris.
