How to Draw Bob Marley Step by Step    (Released in 2011, August)
Previous Image Next Image

  

Step 1: Draw the shape that you see. Really it is two shapes, Bob Marley's silhouette and the background. These shapes do not have to be perfect in order for this portrait to be successful.

Step 2: Draw the M shape that I just added, Notice where it intersects with the shape from step one.

Step 3: Add the shapes for the collar on his shirt.

Step 4: Add the shape for the neck. It kind of looks like a cat's head.

Step 5: Add the shape for Bob Marleys face. Notice the tilt of his head and the placement within the hair shape and above the cat's head shape from the previous step.

Step 6: Add in the shapes for the eyes. Here is a close up.

Step 7: Add in the shape for the nose. The other shapes surrounding the nose are shadow lines and facial hair. All together, this shape sort of resembles a crab.

Step 8: Add the four shapes for the mouth. Notice that the top two are slightly bigger than the bottom two.

Step 9: Draw in the shape for the eyes. Take some extra time to observe where each shape falls within the eye shape.

Step 10: Draw in the shape for the teeth. There are 8 teeth visible. Notice the dark values in the corner of the mouth.

Step 11: Add the shapes in to the hair and in to the clothing. Don't stress, these shapes do not have to be super accurate.

Step 12: Partially erase the lines from step 11. We are going to use charcoal and the dry brush technique. Dark pencil lines will show through.

Blick Studio Bristle Brushes

Blick Studio Bristle Brushes

Merrill's opinion- Blick has the BEST PRICES for brushes by far. These are high quality brushes that you will see in my videos. They last a long time if you take care of them.


Silicoil Brush Cleaning Tank

Silicoil Brush Cleaning Tank

Merrill's Opinion- A very useful tool which separates the used particles of paint on your brush from your paint brush. The used particles are filtered through the coils and fall to the bottom.


Turpenoid

Turpenoid

Merrill's Opinion- It is a LOT cheaper to go to the local hardware store and buy mineral spirits. I am only listing this for the LAZY! :)


Arches Watercolor Paper

Arches Watercolor Paper

Merrill's Opinion- This is the best value if you wish to purchase individual sheets of watercolor paper for dry brush painting. This paper has many uses outsude of watercolor or dry brush painting. Use them also for drawing, calligraphy, gouache, printmaking, acrylics, and even digital printing. Manufactured from pure cotton fiber, they are so durable that they will remain beautiful and vibrant for centuries without conservation, if stored and handled properly. 


 

Bee Paper Aquabee Watercolor Paper Pads

Bee Paper Aquabee Watercolor Paper Pads

Merrill's Opinion- This is a good value if you wish to buy pads of watercolor paper. Bee Paper Aquabee Watercolor Paper Pads contain multiple sheets of a professional-quality paper that is versatile and receptive to all watercolor techniques. The sheets feature a well-sized , cold press surface that is archival, pH-neutral , and maintains maximum strength when wet.


 

Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors, Tubes

Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors, Tubes

Merrill's Opinion- I think that Gamblin is the best value in paint today. You will recieve high quality paint and you will not have to take out a loan from the bank, go on an all Ramen diet or sell a kidney to purchase it.

 


 


 

Prismacolor Colored Pencil Sets

Prismacolor Colored Pencil Sets

Merrill's Opinion- Prismacolor Colored Pencils are unequaled, no other brand is CLOSE in quality. I am NOT picky about any other supply, but I am about these pencils. They are almost as blendable as paint and almost as opaque. You can do unparalelled detail work with these pencils. They mix with oil paint and many other art media.


Prismacolor Art Stix

Prismacolor Art Stix

Merrill's Opinion- I ONLY use the Prismacolor Art Stix colorless blender. i dont really use the other sticks (Stix) too often. I prefer the thinner color pencils for my detail work. The blender is a wax stick made with the same binder as Prismacolor Colored Pencils. The blender blends the color flawlessly and creates gradual tonal and chromatic transitions. It is an invaluable tool! They measure 3¼" × ¼" (82 mm × 6 mm) and can be sharpened to a point for detailed work.
