How to Draw Frankenstein

how to draw frankenstein step 1

STEP 1.

Start out by choosing your pencils. I found myself using an F pencil for sketching and a B pencil for shading/dark lines. An HB pencil was used sparingly when shading. You may also need 2B and 3B pencils depending on how dark you want your shading to be.

STEP 2.

Start out by getting a sketching out the head and shoulders without too much detail. You can use the guidelines if you need them. I used an F pencil to sketch but an HB pencil can work here also.

Your sketch should end up looking something like this. Try to erase as much of the unneeded guidelines as possible.

While still using your sketching pencil, start adding some more detail to the drawing starting with the facial features.

Now roughly shade over the whole drawing with an HB pencil. Shade very lightly. Aim to keep your shading lighter than your lines.

STEP 13.

Now shade in the rest of the face. Try not to blend with a blending stump right now. Rely on your pencil to produce texture.

STEP 14.

Start shading in the neck and the rest of the drawing. I found that shading the rest of the dark areas using only a B pencil was very inconvenient so I decided to also use 2B and 3B pencils. Be sure to add layers working from lightest pencil to darkest pencil; form B to 3B.
