How to Draw Hit Girl from Kick Ass, Chloe Moretz

Step 1.

Draw the two oval shapes and line 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 her facial features.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red lines for hair line and head mass. Also draw in the two rectangular shapes for the gun.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for lower part of the eyes, b. for bottom of nose, c. for mouth, and d. for shoulder placements.

Step 5.

Look really close to how her bangs & top of mask appear near the guidelines. Now draw in Chloe's bangs, top of mask line, eyes, and bottom portion of mask.

Step 6.

Observe where Chloe's features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in her nose and mouth.

Step 7.

Now draw in the profile of her face, her cheek, chin, and jawline,

Step 8.

Now look closely at how the lines of her hair flow with the guidelines. Take your time. Patience is your best friend because with it, you'll be able to complete your drawing.

Step 9.

Now draw in her high collar, shoulder, and portion of her gloved hand.

Step 10.

I'm leaving the best for last. Now draw in her hand grasping the pistol. Take you time. If you want more information on drawing hands, check out my tutorial at this link (copy and paste in your browser address field): If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 11.

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 12.

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 13.

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 14.

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

Step 15.

Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But here's a TIP! Don't draw a straight line for the hairline. Do tiny strokes to represent beginning of hair at its root. Look at real people and see their hairline isn't a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.

Step 16.

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. Applied medium to dark gray to her hair, mask, collar, gloves (hands), and pistol. Light to medium gray was applied on her face. Looks like a mess, right? That's how a beginning project will appear. Keep patience with you and you'll have a great outcome.

Step 17.

What's interesting is I haven't used a pencil yet during this stage. I took a blending stump, a small tortillon (since it won't leave lines and will cover detailed areas) and shaded laying the stump tapered part flat (like a pencil). Then I took it's point and “drew” with it's pointed edge in the smaller areas (her mask, eyes, nose, nose, lips, cheeks, chin. I also used it on her costume, gloves and gun. I used a soft tissue to smooth the skin on her face. I will be using a pencil soon for darkening and very refined areas.

Step 18.

I sketched in darker with my 0.7mm mechanical and 9B pencil her eyes, mouth, mask shadow. I placed my 9B pencil flat and barely touching the paper went over the darker side of her face. Between the shadowed hair strands (of the light hair strip area), I used the point of the 2B in to add more hair line strands and shaded in her pistol a bit more.

Step 19.

Drawing like this is a gradual buildup. I keep sketching, blending and sketching some more. This time, I first blended the pencil sketches with my toritillon to give a smooth transition. I added more dark tones and details to her hair, face, costume, and pistol with a 9B graphite pencil. I did not add any highlights. I made the catch lights in her eyes smaller.

Step 20.

I smoothed her eyes, skin, hair, mouth, costume, and pistol a little more in my SAI program by blurring it. I added darker hair detail on both sides of her face. Also added lighter hair strands to pop out her hair shine and hair strands at her collar. I added light detail to the grooves and 2D lines on the gun. I am closing out now. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on the Hit Girl played by the talented actress, Chloe Moretz. I gave a rough bristle brush stroke for the background. I thought it represents that hard-action type of look, with a bit of insanity. All of you have been wonderful and it has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. And I will definitely reply back soon or eventually. Love, peace, happiness, success, and more beautiful days to ya! *hug* *blowkiss*
