So I was looking through the 'famous faces' section on Dragoart and I couldn't believe that I never made a lesson on "how to draw Patrick Dempsey<>/strong>" from Grey's Anatomy. He at one time was a teen star back in the eighties, and slowly but surely he came back better, and cutier than before. Even with his good looks, you would never think that Patrick is nearly fifty years old. As of today he is forty seven. In Grey's Anatomy he plays the role of a neurosurgeon named 'Derek Shepherd'. This huge television and film star was born in little ol' Lewiston, Maine but grew up in Buckfield Maine. When Dempsey was twenty one, he landed a lead role costarring next to Beverly D'Angelo (Clark's wife from National Lampoon's Vacation with Chevy Chase) called 'In the Mood. After that he was in 'Can't Buy Me Love, Some Girls, Loverboy, and Happy Together'. Anyways, he resurfaced in a way to get recognized when he played Resse Witherspoon's fiance in 'Sweet Home Alabama'. After that, the rest is history. I'm glad that he came back from the dead, and I'm also glad I finally made a tut on drawing Patrick Dempsey. I will return in a bit with more for you all to enjoy so stay tuned in. Adios people!

STEP 5.

Sketching noses can be difficult that is why I just wanted to make things as simple as possible. All you have to do is draw in the nose, mouth or lip line, then sketch in chin detailing as well as the frown lining around the corners of the mouth. Lightly sketch in Patrick's facial hair, then proceed to the next step.
