How to Draw Shane, Shane from The Walking Dead, Jon Bernthal

Step 1.

Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.

Now draw in the bisecting red line to balance his facial features.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, d. for mouth, and e. for shoulder placement.

Step 5.

Now draw in Shane's eyes, eyebrows, and wrinkles.

Step 6.

Observe where Shane's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, cheek shadow line, profile line near the side of his mouth, and mouth.

Step 7.

Watch closely how Shane's jawline, chin, ears, and neck relate to the guidelines. Make sure you add his facial hair. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.

Step 8.

When you sketch his hair, add those straight lines and curls. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This will help if you decide to shade it in.

Step 9.

Now draw in his neck, collar, and shoulder. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you. If you want you can either color it in or shade it. Next step has different types of pencils you can use.

Step 11.

I didn't want to skip this. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading large areas in wide strokes). You can practice tone shading and take it a step further with the Tone Exercise.

Step 12.

Here is how the tools look. I used the 0.7mm 2B mechanical pencil, 9B pencil, tissue, and the blending stump.

Step 13.

In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied medium gray to dark gray and black to his hair. From light to medium gray was added to his face, neck and T-shirt. You can tell dark gray and black was added to his eyebrows and facial hair. I took my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more strokes to his hair. His eyebrows, chin, neck and T-shirt I also smoothed with my blending stump. I used a tissue (which is soft) to smooth out his face around his cheek, jaw, nose and under his eyebrows. I needed to whiten areas like the reflective light on the side of his face, highlights on his nose. I did the highlights with my kneaded eraser.

Step 14.

I darkened in his eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, lips, face shadows, and T-shirt with my 9B graphite pencil and dark gray pastels. I also added lighter hair strands with a light gray pastel stick. Then I blended with my blending stump to give a smooth texture.

Step 15.

Without highlights, your picture would have a flat appearance. Click on this picture to learn how to make your own picture POP out!
