How to Draw Rick Harrison, Pawn Stars, Rick Harrison

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 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, and d. for mouth.

Step 5.

Now draw Rick's eyebrows, wrinkles, and eyes.

Step 6.

Observe where Rick's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, mustache, beard, and mouth.

Step 7.

Now look closely at how the lines of his clean shaven head and ears compare within the guidelines. Keep observing to see where they line up with the guidelines. Patience is your best friend because with it, you'll be able to complete your drawing.

Step 8.

Last but not least, draw in his neck and unbuttoned collar. If you haven't already, you can now erase your guidelines. The lines you couldn't erase, go ahead and blend them in if you will be shading your drawing.

Step 9.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 10.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Take you kneaded eraser and dab off the shadow outlines or dark lines with your kneaded eraser for a more realistic look as you shade. Shading transition from dark to light (or visa versa) should be smooth... no harsh lines. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think. As you do more pictures, this will come easier to you.

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.

This is the first start. This is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. I applied medium to dark gray to his face, neck, and shirt. Looks like a mess. That's how a beginning project will appear. Keep patience with you and keep applying those layers of whites, grays & blacks. You'll have a great outcome.

Step 14.

What's interesting is I haven't used a pencil yet during this stage. I took a tortillon and shaded laying the tortillon's tapered part flat (like a pencil) on his skin. Then I took it's point and “drew” with it's pointed edge in the smaller areas (like the eyes, eyebrows, nostrils, lips, cheek shadows, beard, and neck. I used my larger blending stump on his shirt. I will be using a pencil soon for darkening and very refined areas.

Step 15.

I sketched in the shading slightly darker with my 2B mechanical pencil on his face (areas like his eyes, eyebrows, nose, forehead wrinkle, beard) for more definition. The highlighted areas of his skin I sketched very lightly in order to even the tone value.

Step 16.

Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. Here in this step, I first blended the pencil sketches with my tortillon to give a smooth transition. I added more dark tones and details to his head, beard, sides of his face, and neck with a 2B mechanical pencil. I also took my 9B graphite pencil to give even coverage on his dark shirt and shaded the collar.

Step 17.

I look at the reference picture for tone and highlight accuracy. You can darken with your pencil or pastel. To lighten you can use white pastel, white titanium acrylic or watercolor paint. I lightened his head shine and face, along with smoothing it more by blurring with my digital program. I added dark hair to his mustache and beard. All this was done in my photo/draw editing program. I am closing out now. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on Rick Harrison from Pawn Stars. Does he remind you of Bruce Willis? Hmmmm...
