How to Draw Ville Valo, Ville Valo, HIM

Step 1.

My lines are pretty rough , but I follow the same pattern everyone else does . I don't sketch like this , not at all, I have a very chaotic way of sketching and knowing that would drive you insane, I choose to do these standard steps for you people.

Step 2.

Delete the guide lines and you should be left with this , a fairly simple sketch .

Step 3.

Now, before going any further , I want to make sure all of you can draw eyes and lips, as they are the two face elements that stand out first , not to say the most beautiful . It would be a pity not to be able to draw them, so I made this mini tutorial . Just follow the steps and you should have no problems .

Step 4.

Following the steps from the mini tutorial , fill in the eyes . Use a sharp pencil and draw using very fine lines , press harder only when you're drawing around the pupil . I used B2 and B7 .

Step 5.

Lets go on to the forehead and right cheek . Again , using fine lines and a very delicate hand movement slowly fill in using your B2 . Use qtips as often as you want , just make sure there are no lines visible, just gray smoothness .(I know you can see some lines on my drawing , but that's just a scanner problem.)

Step 6.

Same technique here , just take your time , remember , it has to be smooth .

Step 7.

If you don't own really black graphite, you can use charcoal , it's actually better and less time consuming , but messy . Fill in with black just as I did . Now the hair, you first begin with the dark parts . In the sketch, where the hair lines are closer together , it means the hair is dark there, and where they are really apart, it means there's more light .

Step 8.

The scarf may look difficult , but it's actually more time consuming than difficult. The lines you see on the scarf must be thickened with a B6 or 7. Then shade. As you noticed it gets darker towards his chin . Part of his jacket is black ,so no problem there. You can do the other part black if you want. Lastly , use a gray tone on the arms , careful not to make it darker than the face. Use the same technique you used on the face, pencil and qtips . Your drawing should be done .
