Welcome back all you crazy artistic members and visitors out there. I have some pretty cool tutorials for you all today and I will start by submitting a lesson on one of my all-time favorite characters from a very old flick that was directed by the late Stanley Kubrick. The name of the movie is ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and having said that, let me get busy with showing you "how to draw Alex", step by step. Alex is the leader of a group of delinquents that steal, rape, and violate the system. When the group splits up because of Alex’s inconsideration for his mates, he finds out firsthand what it feels like to be inferior to others that disregard his thoughts, emotions, and indifferent concerns about what is going on around him. He is beaten, bruised, tortured, and humiliated just like one of his victims that he used to prey on almost every night. I love this movie as well as Alex DeLarge, all his bloats, and the rest of the characters that helps make A Clockwork Orange a cult classic. Oh, did I mention that the setting takes place in what is called a futuristic version of what Brittan is like. Of course this is coming from the ideas of a mind that was part of the seventies era. Almost all the music is from Ludwig Van Beethoven, and if you didn’t know, this is mainly due to the fact that Alex is absolutely in passionate love with all of Beethoven’s pieces. The colorful and unique design of how Alex portrays what the youth would eventually turn out to be in futuristic Brittan, to a magical tee. I hope you are familiar with A Clockwork Orange because it truly is a movie worth watching especially if you appreciate the concept of poetry and truth within a film. So enjoy drawing Alex, and I will be back shortly with more drawing fun. Peace people and have fun!

STEP 5.

You will now work on getting the eyes sketched out. You have the top lids drawn, so all you have to do is finishing sketching out the shape of each eye, and then draw in the eyeballs. Color in the pupils, and then on the eye to the left, begin sketching the long lower eyelash in a spidery manner. This is obviously a fake lash and when you are done, finish off the eyes by sketching out the top inner part of the nose bridge, and then sketch in some of the skin that makes the eye bubble.
