I am so excited to upload this new tutorial of the day. This character is from a movie that left an imprint on people’s minds throughout the world. I am not talking about a life changing imprint, I’m talking about a pop culture stain that will forever be remembered and added to the list of all time best movies. With this lesson I will be showing you how to draw Sweeney Todd step by step. Sweeney Todd or a.k.a. Benjamin Barker is a character based movie that stars Johnny Depp who as you know, plays the butcherous barber that is seeking revenge on those responsible for the life that was stolen from him when he was committed for a crime he didn’t commit in the flick. With the help of Mrs. Lovett he lures London’s Aristocratic population into his shop for a quick shave or cute. The unfortunate reality for each person that sits in his chair, the only cut they receive is one across their necks with his straight edge razor. A tutorial on Sweeney Todd was requested by several members that visit the site on a regular basis and even though it took me some time to fulfill, I finally accomplished what I said I would do. As you can imagine this lesson will not be easy, in fact it very well may be a real challenge. I know for me I had to use a reference picture from a poster my brother has on his wall. This was a very difficult face to draw because I had to make sure that all the definition and detailing lines came out in a way to show his insanity through a sketch. I also had to make sure that I colored the image to the best of my ability to emphasis the vivid colors that were often faded throughout the movie. All in all I am very pleased with the way the sketch and finished image came out. It took me a total of three days just to get this image right before I felt confident enough to submit it to the site as a drawing tutorial lesson. I know that all of you will love learning how to draw Sweeney Todd step by step. And remember if you are a novice artist it is still okay to tackle this lesson just to better your drawing skills. I shall return with more drawing fun so stay tuned to see what gets submitted next.
