When I submitted a lesson on one of the music artist a while back, I received an e-mail asking that I do a tutorial that was on “how to draw Chris Brown", step by step. Now of course I didn't start that request right away because of how swamped I am with work. But yesterday I had some free time and I decided that I would finally fill the month old request that a member was so eager about. Now I know most of you know who Chris Brown is, which is why I don't need to tell you that he is an American singer that made his first debut song back when he was just sixteen years old. The song that climbed the charts was “Run It” from his self titled Album “Chris Brown”. All of this took place in the latter part of 2005, and since then, he has made a lasting impression on the hearts and minds of millions of fans. He was born “Christopher Maurice Brown" on May 5, 1989, and he grew up in a small town called “Tappahannock, Virginia”. I guess you could say in the beginning he grew up a normal kid to a middle class family. His mother was a day care center directer, and his dad was a corrections officer. As with a lot of singers, music has been a big part of his life, and in the beginning he used to be an avid fan of soul music. As he got older his interests started to gear more toward hip hop music which is what he sings today. One of the things that Chris Brown is known for is his soft, soothing singing voice. When his mother heard his singing, she knew that her son was gifted, and could make it as a singer. She immediately started looking for record companies that would find an interest in her son. It was when he was thirteen years old that Chris was discovered by a local production company. That is when it all started for him. In 2004 he moved to New York, and later over the next year he eventually singed with Jive Records. He chose Jive because of their success rate with young artists like Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake. In 2005 through 2006 he began his touring for his new album. It didn't take long for Brown to be a success, and nowadays, he is a singing superstar. I think you will like this lesson that will show you with ease, "how to draw Chris Brown", step by step. He once stated that one of his inspirations was Michael Jackson. This is plainly seen by his dance style. There is more information about Chris Brown, but I know you guys know what that is. I can however point you in the direction to visit the official Chris Brown website. That's it for me guys, I hope you enjoy this tutorial. I shall return with more drawing fun. Peace!

How to Draw Chris Brown

how to draw chris brown step 1

STEP 1.

Since this head portrait will be from the side, it should be relatively easy for you guys to draw and follow. Keep in mind what I said before, your shapes should be the size of how big you want your drawing to be. Having said that, start by drawing a circle for the shape of his head, and then draw the outlined shape of his neck, and lower portion of his face. Add the facial guidelines, and proceed to the next step.

STEP 2.

These next steps should be performed by using lightly sketched lines. This way here, if you make a mistake the erasing job won't look horrific. You will start lightly sketching out the shape of his jaw line which flows into the outline of his lips and or mouth, and then into his nose, and lastly, some of his forehead. Using the facial guidelines you drew in step one, begin the lining process for his one visible eye.

STEP 3.

You can now start sketching out the rest of his eye shape as well as the other eye. Once that is done you can then sketch out the shape of his eyebrows, and then add some light shading above the eye as you see here. This should be done slowly and with patience.

STEP 4.

Finish sketching out the shape of the back part of his neck, and then draw the shape of his head and ear. You will then draw the rim of his hat that he is wearing on a slant. When that is done you can proceed onto sketching out the shape of his nose consisting of his nostrils, and then his full shaped mouth and or lips. Don't forget to add the dent above the top lip.

STEP 5.

Before you start shading in your portrait, you will need to sketch out his shirt or shoulders. Add some definition to his neck, and then the first shading you do is for his hair. He has a short style cut with a cut design on the side of his head. When you sketch out his hair, use small close nit lines to create the texture of a fade. You will also start shading more around his eyes, forehead, on the tip of his nose, around his mouth and top lip, and then on his chin, neck, behind the ear. There is a lot of cross hatch shading in this step.

STEP 6.

For your last drawing step all you need to do is add more shading for his eyes, shade in the rest of his hair. When his hairdo is all done, the design should look like the tip of a star. Add shading and detail to contour his ear, and then add some more shading to his neck. The last thing you will do here is finish sketching out his hat and add shading under the rim, and along the sides. Erase the visible lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

STEP 7.

If you took your time to sketch out and draw this portrait, your drawing of Chris Brown should look something like the sketch you see here. Now that you have finished, you can color him in, or leave him as a sketched image, your choice. I hope you had fun, join me next time for more drawing fun!
