This has got to be one of my favorite drawings/tutorials of all time. I can't not tell you how much Guns n Roses is a big part of my life. I know I wasn't born in the 70's to fully understand and enjoy one of the greatest rock bands ever created, but I know a lot of you that visit Dragoart are major fans of GNR as well. Today I will show you "how to draw Guns N Roses", step by step in a member layout cartoon style. From left to right we have; Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler, W. Axl Rose, Duff "Rose" McKagan, and of course Slash. The members always reminded me of animated characters because each one was so colorful. They all had their own look that explained their personalities but all were rebels. I hope you guys like my take on drawing the band members of Guns N Roses.

How to Draw Guns N Roses

how to draw guns n roses step 1

STEP 1.

Start off with five head guides/shapes as well as facial guidelines.

STEP 2.

In this next step you will sketch out all the face shapes for each band member. Notice how each face has a different structured chin and jaw line. You will draw the A lined hairline for Slash. As you know his locks frame his face.

STEP 3.

Next, draw in the messy bangs for Izzy, Steven, and Duff. For Axl you will draw in the bandanna and sunglasses on top of the head.

STEP 4.

Finish sketching out all their hair and believe me its a lot. They didn't call bands like Guns N Roses 'Hair bands' for no reason. For Slash you will also draw in his signature top hat.

STEP 5.

Axl gets all the attention in this step because it's just his bandanna and glasses that are getting tweaked. Add some spots on the bandanna, and mounting stems on the glasses.

STEP 6.

Let's now begin drawing out the eyebrows which should all have some darkness of boldness to them. For some of the members add some shading around the inner parts of the eyes. For Slash, draw in sunglasses.

You will continue to work on the face by sketching out the rest of the eyes. When you are done you can proceed to step eight.

STEP 8.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is sketch in their noses, mouths and defined hollows of their cheeks. Slash has a cigarette hanging from his mouth so don't forget that. Erase the mistakes and guidelines.
