Please note that I am executing this drawing in the dry brush painting technique. The paper is 300lb watercolor paper. Please scroll down to see all of the supplies that I used.
Step 1: Cut a large piece of paper in to the dimensions 20 by 16 inches. Then make the two shapes that you see. These will become Capt. Jack Sparrow's hat.
Step 2: Use the corners of the page as a reference and draw the shapes that you see. The circles are a part of his earring and the long shape is something that is stuck in his hair. I guess he left his shampoo in Davy Jones' locker.
Step 3: Add the shapes for the eyes.
Step 4: Closely observe the shapes that I added, then sketch in the eyes. Notice the dark regions above and below the eyes.
Step 5: Do the same thing for the mid face region. Notice that the shading at both the bottom of the nose and directly under the nose. Also, notice that the tip of the nose goes to the edge of the eye shape above it.
Step 6: This is by far the most difficult step. But, I want you to only focus on the placement of the mouth. Because the head is turned, the corners of the mouth do not line up with the centers of the eye. Use the knowlegdge that you have gained from my previous videos and break this difficult region down in to shapes.
Step 7: Complete the bottom of Sparrow's face.
Step 8: Add the heart shape and the finger shape. Notice that the finger connects with the earring.
Step 9: Complete the hand shape.
Step 10: Add the shapes around the hand.
Step 11: Add the shapes to the left of the hand. This will be Captain Jack's gun.
Step 12: Draw in the shape for the body for Orlando Bloom's character, Will Turner. Use the edges of the paper and the previous shapes to figure out the fit.
Step 13: Add the shapes for Turner's neck and chin.
Step 14: Complete the shape for Turner's head.
Step 15: Draw the shapes for Turners eyes and nose. Notice that there is one eye length between his two eyes. Also, notice how close his eyes are to his eyebrows. Another tip that I will give you is that the nose is the same length as the forehead.....And it is also the same distance from the bottom of the nose to the chin.
Step 16: Add the mouth and the moustache.

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 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.
