What better way to start the day then with a lesson on a figure that I’m sure all of you know of. He has been a television celebrity but not due to acting or entertaining. Instead, we recognize this man as being one of the most popular infomercial celebrities out there even though he has passed on. Today I will show you "how to draw Billy Mays", step by step. Billy Mays was, as you know the spokesperson for products like Oxiclean, Kaboom, Orange Glo, and even Mighty Putty. He became a regular guest on Home Shopping Network, and because of his exciting personality and strong selling pitch, he is known even through death, around the world. Nowadays there are still people out there that use his motivational way of selling to pitch their own products, but no one, not one person can ever replace Billy Mays the selling King. I do hope you like this lesson on drawing Billy Mays as I did. I will return with more drawing fun so stick around because I know you will like what I have to upload today. Peace out people and may Billy rest in peace.

how to draw billy mays, billy mays step 1

STEP 1.

Start out by making the outline for the head, then draw in the neck and shoulders. You will lightly sketch in the facial guidelines as well.

STEP 2.

Using the guide you made for Billy's face in step one, begin sketching out the actual shape of his face. Billy has a square style jaw so this means you will have to draw the jaw line in an angled manner. Sketch in the fluff for the hairline, then move to step three.

STEP 3.

Okay, here is where we will be sketching out Billy's nice combed back style hair. Take your time so his signature hairstyle comes out looking just right. When that is done sketch out the shapes of his ears, then add detailing inside them.

STEP 4.

Here you will first draw in his beady looking eyes, as well as his bold bushy eyebrows. Draw the angled shape of his nose, then draw in his signature smile, and full mustache and beard. Color in his facial hair solid, but leave the mustache lighter than the beard. Add the frown lines around the mouth and nostrils, then proceed to step five.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is sketch out the shape of his neck, then draw in the folded shirt collar, followed by the shoulders, t-shirt under his button-up shirt, then add the seam lines and detailing to the clothing. Don't forget to define his neck as well. Erase the mistakes then you're done.
