How to Draw Freddy Krueger, Freddy Krueger, Nightmare on Elm Street

STEP 1.

Start out by picking your pencils. I used an F pencil for sketching, an HB for shading and lines, and a 3B for dark shading and lines. You may need a softer pencil than 3B if you find your shading not coming out dark enough.

STEP 2.

Start out by drawing a basic sketch. Use the guideline if you need them.

Make sure to erase any of the guidelines that you don't need. Your sketch should end up looking something like this.

STEP 10.

Start shading around the eyes. I relied mainly on an HB pencil for shading. Combine an HB pencil with a 3B to get darker values for shadows.

STEP 11.

Now shade in his fedora using the same pencils. You may need something softer like a 6B or 7B to add texture and make the shading darker. Also notice how I work on my background as I move along. All I used for the background was an HB pencil.

STEP 16.

Now shade in the rest of the drawing. Finish up by going over your shading again. Try to darken any spots that may have gotten smudged and redefine any outline that look a bit fuzzy. I hope you all have as much fun with this drawing as I did! Comments and questions are more than welcome!
