Here is a pop artist that I can't believe I never made a lesson for. Today I will be showing you "how to draw Alicia Keys", step by step. She is best known for her hip hop/pop sounds fused with a strong piano lead. Her real name is Alicia cook and she was born in Manhattan near the Hell’s Kitchen area. Alicia started to play the piano when she was seven years old and soon after she learned to play classical music from Beethoven, Mozart and even Chopin. Her mother sent her to both music and dance schools and by the time Ms. Keys was twelve, she was enrolled to Professional Performing Arts school. BY the time she was sixteen she had graduated with valedictorian status. Her real start to fame was in 1994 when she was signed to Columbia Records. From there, the rest is history. Her new hit nowadays is ‘Girl on Fire’ and she will continue to remain in the spotlight because gifted performers usually do. Have fun with drawing Alicia Keys everyone and if you are a fan of Alicia Keys you might enjoy visiting her website which can be accessed by clicking her name in yellow. I will be back so be sure to stick around.

STEP 5.

Alicia Keys has many hairstyles. For this lesson I drew her sporting a long straight du. Sketch out the rest of her head shape, then sketch in the long wavy locks. I say wavy because her hair is being blown by wind. Add detailing then proceed to step six.
