How To Draw Jay Baruchel

how to draw jay baruchel step 1

STEP 1.

To Jay Baruchel, we should first sketch out some basic construction lines. Use a 2H or harder pencil and sketch very lightly so that the lines are easy to erase later on after we ink. Sketch the basic oval shape of the head, neck, and upper shoulders. Be sure to draw crisscross construction lines for the center of the face, the eyes, nose, and mouth.

STEP 2.

Now that our guide lines are in place, let's begin working on the eyes. They should rest directly on the horizontal guide line and be squinted. Make sure that the iris and pupils are looking in the exact same direction as one another. Draw numerous creases and folds around the eyes for the eyelids. Jay's eyes rest deep in his eye sockets, so his eyebrows should rest low, just barely above each eye. The eyebrows should be very long and fairly thick.

STEP 3.

Next, draw his nose with the help of your vertical construction line for placement. The nose should end about half way between the eyes and chin. The bridge of his nose has a slight bump, and the tip of his nose points upwards. Although his nostril holes are small, the flesh around them is thick.

STEP 4.

Jay is one of those guys who almost always seems to be smiling, or on the verge of it. Draw him with a big smile on his face. The mouth should be half way between his nose and chin. His upper lip should be considerably lower than his thick bottom lip. Draw the upper teeth overlapping the lower teeth. Be sure to draw a few thick creases on either side of the mouth.

STEP 5.

Draw the contours of his face and jaw lin. His face is fairly long and he has kind of a big forehead. His chin has two bumps on it and his jaw line is a smooth upward curve.

STEP 6.

We should only be able to see his right ear at this angle, which is very rounded. Almost a perfect oval. The top of the ear should align with the eyebrows, the bottom of the ear should align with the tip of his nose. Be sure to draw plenty of curved creases inside the ear.

STEP 7.

Let’s give Jay a wide, mohawk type haircut. The hair on the side of his head should be buzzed down very short, whereas the hair on the top and back of his head should be long and wavy. The front of his hair should look somewhat poufy, since it's brushed back out of his face.

STEP 8.

If you'd like, you can draw him with stubble all over his lower face. Take your time drawing short, thin whiskers, but make sure that they don't go too high up his cheeks. The stubble near his chin and sideburns should be a little thicker than the rest.

STEP 9.

Jay has a thin neck. The back of the neck should protrude from behind the earlobe, and the front of the neck should be beneath his chin. Notice how both lines are curved and point towards his back, rather than being straight up and down.

STEP 10.

Draw him wearing a dress shirt, but we can only see the top of his shoulders and some of the folded collar. Draw a few vertical creases in the fabric of the shirt while you're at it.

STEP 11.

Now that we are done penciling the image we can ink it. Use either Micron markers, or a brush and India ink to do your inking. A brush works great when inking hair, since it allows you to feather nicely. Carefully go over each line with patience and be sure not to ink any guide lines. Take your time with the facial whiskers, and use a fine tipped Micron to ink them. When the ink has totally dried, erase your pencil marks with a kneaded eraser.

STEP 12.

You can add a greater sense of depth to the image by giving it shadow. Use either a thick felt tip marker, or a brush and ink to do so. Establish your light source, and in this case it is coming from the above right side of the page. Shade the underside of his brow, nose, and jaw line. Use a brush to add shadow to the roots of the hair. Also black out his shirt but try to leave streaks of white alongside the creases and folds.

STEP 13.

If you need to make any corrections you can use white ink or opaque white paint. You can also use it to add more highlights, like in the hair or shirt. And that's how you draw the hilarious Jay Baruchel! Congrats!
