STEP 7.

Watch closely how his cap's outline, brim, and Yuuup! letters relate to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.

STEP 8.

Now draw in the profile of his jawline and chin. Remember to draw in his ears and sideburns as well.

STEP 9.

Last but not least, draw in his neck and collar. 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.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Take you kneaded eraser and dab off the shadow outlines or dark lines with your kneaded eraser for a more realistic look as you shade. Shading transition from dark to light (or visa versa) should be smooth... no harsh lines. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think. As you do more pictures, this will come easier to you.

STEP 12.

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 13.

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

STEP 14.

Since Dave is wearing a hat, I would like to give you a drawing tip. An easy way to get the hat right is to draw the crown to fit directly over the skull, not his hair, no matter what angle is used for the hat as you can see from the picture. Check out how some of the crown of the hat doesn't touch the skull. This is because of the shape of the hat. Why do I have a running center line on the 1st & 3rd picture? Because centering the hat on the face is a guide to draw the hat on the head more accurately.

STEP 15.

This is the first start. 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 light medium and medium gray to his face and collar. Medium and dark gray was applied to his cap and shaded areas on his face. Looks like a mess. That's how a beginning project will appear. Keep patience with you and keep applying those layers of whites, grays & blacks. You'll have a great outcome.

STEP 16.

What's interesting is I haven't used a pencil yet during this stage. I took a blending stump (since it won't leave lines and will cover a larger area) and shaded laying the stump tapered part flat (like a pencil). Then I took it's point and “drew” with it's pointed edge in the smaller areas (like around the letters on his cap, his eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, cheeks, side of face, mouth, and chin. I also used this application around his neck and collar. I will be using a pencil soon for darkening and very refined areas. I've lightened areas with the kneaded eraser.

STEP 17.

I sketched in darker with my 0.7mm mechanical and 9B pencil his eyes & mouth. I placed my 9B pencil flat and barely touching the paper went over the darker side of his face. Between the shadowed hat brim and face, I used the point of the 9B.

STEP 18.

Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I first blended the pencil sketches with my toritllon to give a smooth transition. I added more dark tones and details to his cap (like defining the seams), face, and neck with a 9B graphite pencil. I also took a soft tissue to lighten up his skin area around the highlights.

STEP 19.

Here I added lots of highlights in the letters on his cap from looking at the reference picture. You can do this with white pastel, white titanium acrylic or watercolor paint. I also lightened his jaw area and smoothed it more by blurring with my digital program. I added some seam highlight in his cap, brighter catch lights in his eyes, and a nose shine. I am closing out now. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on Dave Hester from Storage Wars. I love that "Yuuup!" saying on his cap...so cool! All of you 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*
