Today I have a few lessons that I know you will all love. I want to start with something exciting and full of character. Here is "how to draw Donnie Darko", step by step. This depiction of Donnie Darko has his face split with half the rabbit from the movie, and half of Donnie's face. I love how this sketch came out, and for those of you who are fans of the movie, already know that you have to watch it more then twice to really understand what the whole thing is about. So go ahead and enjoy drawing Donnie Darko, and I will be back with other super tuts for you all.
