This isn't a lesson that most of you visitors would find as appealing, mainly because the show is so underrated. I will be showing you how to draw the most brilliant criminal mastermind in film history, Hannibal Lecter. He is brilliantly portrayed by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen. Dark, cold, heartless; the way Hannibal is portrayed in this TV show is nothing short of genius, besides Anthony Hopkins's performance in all 3 movies. At the start of season one, Will Graham meets a therapist who aids him in solving crimes and profiling culprits of the crimes. Behind the scenes, Hannibal has a sick and twisted desire of hacking victims up, and eating select organs. They label the murderer of these brutal crimes 'The Chesapeake Ripper'; an investigation that Will and his co-workers scrutinize. While Hannibal lurks within the shadows, contemplating vast amounts of scenarios to keep himself from being discovered, things get edgy with Will, and soon he slowly becomes aware of Hannibal's quirks. This character is probably one of the few that I absolutely love. I'm so eager to watch every single episode that airs, even if I have to sit through boring advertisements. If you're a huge fan of Mads Mikkelsen or the Hannibal franchise, please watch this show. I know it's nothing like Anthony Hopkins, but it's a very unique twist on an intelligent serial killer. Have fun and I hope you'll enjoy!

STEP 12.

Here's my typical process of painting Hannibal. As you can see, I like working in my highlights on an already dark surface, so shading is easier and more accurate. I then as I shade, add brighter highlights when it needs it. Notice how highlights can really make someone's facial features stand out remarkably. Observe the first screenshot and how flat the character looks compared with the 4th.
