How to Draw Amare Stoudemire Step by Step

How to Draw Amare Stoudemire Step by Step by Merrill Kazanjian


Amare Drawing 1

Step 1: Draw the shape for the jersey. It is about three times as tall as it is wide. Leave enough room on the top for the head and the bottom for the legs.

Amare Drawing 2

Step 2: Draw in the three shapes that you see. The first is similar to a banana and the second and third are circular. Notice their placement compared to the jersey shape.

Step 3: Add in the arms.....Wait! Dont freak out! This step is easy if you see the 2 trapezoid shapes in between the arms and torso.

Step 4: Add Amar'e's basketball shorts and his legs. Together they are similar in height to his basketball jersey.

Amare Knicks Drawing Neck

Step 5: Add the shape for the neck.

Step 6: Sculpt the hands out of the shapes from step 2. Use the original shape as your guide.

Amare Shorts Drawing All Star

Step 7: Add the folds and the star to his shorts. These do not have to be perfect.

Step 8: Add the star and the upside down house shape to his jersey. Ignore the head for now. I will give you a close up and detailed instructions on that in a minute.

Step 9: Use the nagative space to sculpt out the letters E.A.S.T. in the upside down house shape.

Step 10: Add the number one below the star and the word "the" above the word East. Also darken the collar and add the shapes for the folds on the shoulders of the jersey,

Step 11: Add the four shapes for Amare's mouth and facial hair. We will add more shapes to this in the next step. For this step, it is helpful to notice the diamond shape around the mouth.

Step 12: Add the line that I just added to form the top lip, below the moustache.

Amare teeth

Step 13 is the trickiest step. There are 7 teeth visable. The two front teeth in the center. Three to your left and two to your right. One is blocked in shadow. Notice that there is more space below the teeth than above the teeth. Draw what you see.

Amare Stoudemire Nose

Step 14: Add the nose shape. Notice where it lines up to the smile lines from the previous step. It is ok to shade the nostrils very dark because they will be in shadow.

Amare Stoudemire Eye Eyes

Step 16: Extend the head and draw in the shape for the eyes.

Amare Stoudemire ears

Step 17: Add the ears. Notice that the bottom of the ear shapes line up with the bottom of the nose.

Amare Stoudemire Hair

Step 18: Add the hair.

Amare Stoudemire Eyebrows

Step 19: Add the eyebrows.

Step 20: Add the shape for the eyes.

Step 21: Shade the eyes. Notice that the lines get thicker as they move towards the ears. Leave a small space in each eye for a highlight.




">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

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

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.
