This video will give you explicit instructions on how to draw the rapper Eminem, step by step. Just follow the instructions on the eight steps that I give you and shade along with me during the shading tutorial at the end of this video. Use the pictures and text below to supplement the instruction in the video. Good luck! Leave me a comment at the bottom. - Merrill
Step 1:Make a bowl shape. Notice that the left side of the bowl is more vertical than the right side of the bowl, which is more curved. Also, make the other two parallel lines that you see. One is slightly left of the middle of the bowl shape and the other is to the right of the bowl shape.
Step 2:Make Eminem's ear. Notice how it fits perfectly with the lines from step 1. If you need more explanation on how to draw an ear at this angle, click on the image to go to one of my ear tutorials, and then come back.
Step 3: Draw in the mouth shape. The two lips together look like a flattened heart shape. Notice that the bottom lip is slightly thicker than the top lip. Also notice that the top lip slightly resembles a lightning bolt.
Step 4: This is by far the trickiest step. Complete the outline of the face. The only way that you will get this is by observing this reference picture. Notice that the face goes up about three times the height of the original bowl shape. Use the ear and the mouth as reference points or comparison points to where the line goes. If there's vomit on your sweater already, i'm worried......but if you get this step, you will get the entire image, so push it.
Step 5: Make the small line above the mouth.
Step 7: Draw in the hair shape. Notice that it gets wider towards your right hand side at the top. Also, notice that the line for the top of the hair meets with Eminem's ear and then continues to his neck.
Step 8: Add the eyes. Notice that there is about one eye length between each eye. Overall, the eye shapes are almond shaped but have other lines around the almond shape on the top and on the bottom.
