It is possible to refer to the basic step-by step drawing guide that follows
Make an oval by drawing it lightly using an HB pencil or #2. Be sure to draw it exactly as seen in the photo.
Draw an red bisector to draw a balance between the contours of his face.
Lightly trace the crescent red lines to mark the hairline and the head block.
It is possible to draw lines. to create eyebrows, b. for eyes for eyes, for eyes. to represent the nostrils and to draw a. in order to mouth. and e. for shoulders.
Draw Gandalf’s eyebrows, and winged eyelashes with the bag.
Look at the appearance of Gandalf’s features in relation to the basic principles. Draw the eyebrows, lines of shadowy marks left the nose, and the right contour on the facial contour.
Pay attention to how Gandalf’s mustache is a tiny portion of his mouth and beard relate to concepts. If you draw, you’ll be more precise. Draw the hairs on his beard.
If you don’t have one, then you can remove your rule. While drawing his hair, you can add hairlines and curly sections. Keep your eyes on the lines that indicate the direction and curls. This is helpful when shading it. Also, at the same time stop the shoulder.
I created this line drawing especially for those who don’t have the time to draw the shading and blending in pencil. If not, let’s go on by drawing the pencil.
Here’s a sketch drawn using the 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Check closely to see the lines you draw look like this. You can remove them if parts like eyes or nose aren’t aligned. Be patient it’s not as difficult as you might think. When you create more pictures it will become much easier for you.
Before we proceed further I’d like to highlight the tools I used which include the famous white acrylic as well as Sandpaper. In covering Gandalf’s cloak I made use of Sandpaper. In the next steps, I’ll demonstrate some of the amazing applications of pencils.
The best thing to draw hair in is make an overall shape, then begin working on the main hair strands by keeping your pen at about a 45-degree angle so that it is smooth and covers. As in the third picture you can draw in more depth. Here’s a hint! Don’t make a straight line to mark the hairline. Create small strokes that show the hair’s top on its lower part. Examine real people and notice that their hairline isn’t straight. Make sure you practice and your artwork will appear more real
The image that goes with this step illustrates two distinct ways of holding your pencil in order to create certain effects. Excellent Holding a pencil with a pointed tip when writing normally with your fingers in the middle or close to the tip allows you control over fine or detailed strokes. Understand how to hold your pencil in a 45 degree angle, or close to the table, placing the tip under your palm , keeping the pencil flat. This gives the user a great amount of coverage. With the #2 pencil you can expose the lead to allow shading. For a bigger surface, use the Cretacolor Monolith graphite pencil without an wooden case. The entire part that is sharpened is entirely lead, as in the image of the process. It is important to practice toning values so that you remain in control.
Pencil STROKES AND TONE and TEXTURE, SHADING To make it easier for you I’ve included this step using different pencils, strokes , and shades to make use of. Also, you can look at the forms that compose this drawing universe together with shadows, tones and textures.
This image is a fantastic exercise for shading value. I have a hidden trick to help you make it easier. You can download it on your desktop. Click the image to open it to the full-size version. When you right-click your mouse you can choose “Save Image As.” It will save the image to your desktop.
After printing some of the above patterns Practice shading the numbers like this one. Once you are comfortable with this shading method, which gives you greater ability to control your environment and increase confidence.
Really, I’ve not been an old person before. I was thinking, “What do I do with his beard and hair… there’s so much of that.” It was a joy my first time I tried sketching particulars using my trusted 0.7mm mechanical pencil.
Utilizing my blend stump, I smoothed out the outline lines and then added texture lines to the cape mechanically by 0.7mm using an F (smooth) leads.
This is the initial step using the pastel color application. If you sketch the entire image in pencil and then sketch circles or lines that shade areas. It can take several hours to cover the entire space with the pencil. I decided to shade it with pastels. With just a couple of strokes, I got coverage. Use medium gray on the face. Medium dark gray on hair, shiny backside, and shoulders. It appears like the scene of a disaster. This is how the beginning of a project may appear. Keep at it and continue to apply layers of black, gray, and white layers. You’ll get a fantastic outcome.
Here, I utilized the blend stump I had in order to “draw” more lines, creating shadows for his face and beard. I’m trying to bleach areas, like the curls that he has on his beard as well as the locks on his shoulders. Additionally, I “kneaded” it to light up. After these adjustments, I spray-painted the artwork using “Krylon Workable Fixatif” to fix the pastels and pencils to the paper, creating an unsmudge-proof and usable surface.
The first photo I sketched the background using my graphite pencil 9B, and also the very dark areas of the image and then added dark gray chalk. This eliminated the most details of the cloak worn by Gandalf (arghhh ). The second picture I blended it my stump, and then add lines to his beard and hair. I used a medium gray stick , and applied a dab of his beard to give it more texture and depth. I also darkened the beard and darkerened his lines of texture using sandpaper to give the burlap-like feel.
I’m going to tell you I have to say this… Ah I’m finished, I’m over it… what do you feel? It was a fantastic learning experience. I was shocked by the details that was put into the beard and hair of his friend. However, I was convinced that he was an attractive older man, and that inspired me. I hope you don’t need to take the same way as I did. I used pure opalescent watercolor and then added accents to the hair of his a mustache or beard (mixed in with pastel gray to create an appealing blend) and sparkling eyes. I’m completely happy with the result. And I’m sure you will as well with your own creativity. To assist with specific areas of highlights tones, textures and much more, the following two steps will help you how to do it.
