How to Draw Count Dracula, Bela Lugosi

STEP 1.

Start off by with a basic sketch of the face and clothing. Draw a basic circle then add in the basic guidelines before roughly sketching in the main features. HB graphite is recommended for sketching.

Clean up the sketch. Erase unnecessary guidelines and define the main lines.

STEP 3.

Add a base layer of shading to the drawing. Use HB graphite to lightly sketch in horizontal lines. Then lightly sketch in vertical lines. A blending stump or paper towel can then be used to blend in the shading. A few pinches of powdered graphite can also be added to the drawing before blending in order to make the base layer smoother

STEP 5.

Use a 4B pencil to add rough shading. Start with the eyes and facial features then roughly shade in the hair. Finally, add some rough shading to the clothing. Do not worry about making the shading smooth or clean just yet.

STEP 6.

Use an HB pencil to smooth over and define the rough shading. The main goal here is to better define outlines and shadows. Start with the face and ears.

STEP 9.

Add finishing touches to the drawing. Use a 4H pencil to smooth out light shading and add small details. A blending stump can also be used to make areas smoother. Go over the darkest shading once more with layers of 4B and HB graphite. Smooth out the background shading with a blending stump and erase highlights as needed. Shade lightly with HB and 4B pencils to add more realistic skin textures. Add as much detail as you see fit before calling the drawing done.
