I get requests to draw all sorts of actors, performers, and even musicians. Sometimes I get real excited about drawing a particular movie star that is very popular with main stream households across the globe. So I guess it's time to say who exactly I will be giving you a lesson on. I was asked to do a tutorial on “how to draw Will Smith, step by step”. Will Smith is most recognized as being part of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince during the late eighties. Even though he had a successful musical career, he nearly lost everything due to a tax mishap. He was eventually approached by the NBC network with an idea for a show that surrounded around the life of a West Philadelphia teen named Will. He accepted and so the show was born, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”. I guess you could say it was that NBC television series that started his career in motion. Will Smith and the series aired a total of one hundred forty eight episodes before it ended in 1996. Next came his role along side Martin Lawrence in “Bad Boys I & II, then independence Day, next came the very entertaining Men in Black, and Men in Black II. As time progressed he took on more leading roles in movies like I Robot, which was also very good, The Pursuit of Happiness, another awesome and heartfelt flick, and the more recent and unforgettable, I Am Legend. But his acting career doesn't stop there. Will Smith also gets his chance to play a superhero in Hancock. I think he was good in Handcock because he played his character very realistic. There is so many more movies that Will Smith is known for and the reason why I know almost everything he stared in, is because I have a collection of his movies. I'm not the only fan of this funny, true, and talented actor, both of my brothers think he is absolutely awesome too. Another movie favorite that he stars in is Enemy of the State, and Hitch. The picture that I used as a reference of is from his movie Seven Pounds. Even though that movie has been out for some time now, I still haven't had a chance to watch it. I chose to draw a sketch of him as this character because he looks serious and yet still like Will. Did you know that his full name is not William? It's true, many people and or fans think that Will is short for William. The truth is his full name is Willard Christopher Smith Jr. What a name huh? He was born in September in the year of 1968 which makes him forty one years old. Smith is also known for being happily married to Jada Pinkett-Smith. His son can be seen acting in the movie “The Day the Earth Stood Still” along side Jennifer Connelly, and Keanu Reeves. I always thought that Will Smith had a friendly and cheerful look making him an a cool character to watch in movies. Don't get me wrong I think every actor has their “bad movies”. For Will I think it was Wild Wild West. Anyways, I tried setting up the steps to be easily replicated and understood. I will leave you now with this tutorial on “how to draw Will Smith, step by step”. Join me soon with more drawing fun. Adios amigos, and happy drawing!
