How to Draw Heath Ledger as the Joker: Batman Dark Knight    (Released in 2011, August)
Previous Image Next Image

 
 

Step 1: Cut a piece of drawing paper to the measurements 11.0 inches by 6.5 inches.

Step 2: Draw the three shapes that you see. Be as precise as you can with the middle shape. The two outer shapes, which will be the hair are not as important. Use the borders of the page as a guide to help you with this step.

Step 3: Do you want to know how I got these scars? Its from step three, which actually isnt that hard. Focus on the general placement of these shapes. Use the line that cuts through as a guide. Do not drive yourself crazy with all the details.

Step 4: Add the shape for Heath Ledger (Joker's) nose.

Step 5: Add Joker's face, but dont make it too long.
Step 6: Add Jokers smile. Notice that it goes up to his eyes!!!!
 Step 7: Add the shadow between his nose and his mouth.
 Step 8: Add the shoulders.
Step 9: Add the eyes. Focus more on the PLACEMENT of the eyes rather than the shape!
 Step 10: Add some details to his clothing.
 

 

">15-Piece Drawing Set

15-Piece Drawing Set

Merrill's Opinion: Faber-Castell makes the best drawing pencils. These pencils are mixed with graphite and clay and enhance an artists ability to create and layer dark tones. You will see me use this set in almost all of my videos. 


Lyra Graphite Crayons

Lyra Graphite Crayons

Merrill's Opinion: Do you ever get TIRED of shading with a fine "tip" pencil? Get my "point"? This tool will save you time and money.

Robert Simmons White Sable Brushes

Robert Simmons White Sable Brushes

Merrill's Opinion: Robert Simmons brushes get better with age. These synthetic brushes collect particles of graphite as they are rubbed on a piece of paper. This enables me to softly move and blend tones. Most often I use the "Flat Size 10" brush but it helps to have a variety of sizes and shapes. 


 

Loew-Cornell Blending Stumps

Loew-Cornell Blending Stumps

Merrill's Opinion- INVALUBLE tools for blending! These will cost you LESS than a trip on the subway (Less than 2 dollars) and enhance your shading capacity substantially! I like Leow-Cornell because the stump is more compact and the tips do not wear as easily as other brands. I use these tools in almost every one of my videos.


Blick White Sulphite Drawing Paper

Blick White Sulphite Drawing Paper

Merrill's Opinion: Really, I DARE YOU, try to find a better value than this one! 500 sheets of 80LB (thick) drawing paper for $11.50. AMAZING DEAL!......If you use computer paper to create your drawings, you are ROBBING yourself from seeing what you can really do! This paper has more "tooth" (texture on the surface) than computer paper and your ability to shade will be enhanced.


Coates Premium Artist's Willow Charcoal

Coates Premium Artist's Willow Charcoal

Merrill's Opinion- I use this to block in large areas such as hair. This product can be combined with drawing pencils.


General's White Charcoal

General's White Charcoal

Merrill's Opinion- I use this to add highlights at the end of a drawing. It mixes with both pencil and charcoal. Each stick measures 3" × ¼" × ¼" (76 mm × 6 mm × 6 mm).
