Draw this woman’s head with me – Easy #InkTober

October means #inktober in the world of drawing. You may find the idea of drawing something everyday a bit daunting or maybe, like me, you don’t have the time!

If you have always wanted to draw but were not quite sure where to start, then watch this video – as many times as you like – and follow along with me. You will surprise yourself and maybe your friends and family too!

Get yourself something to draw with and something to draw on – yes even if it is only a ball pint pen and the back of an envelope – and follow along. You can stop and start the video with the space bar and you can rewatch the video as many times as you like if you get stuck.

There are no rules with drawing, you can use any pen or pencil you like and draw on any surface you like. Keep drawing and your own unique style will eventually emerge.

How to Draw Dr Martin Luther King Jr Real Easy

Goodness I had trouble with this one! doing a portrait is hared enough, but talking and explaining how to do it at the same time is harder. Making is easy to copy and produce harder still.

I was having real trouble working out proportions when I noticed something strange about his moustache. I then look through loads of photographs and came to the conclusion that Dr King’s face must have been noticeably asymmetrical. It was had to see as all his portraits are taken from his left side, masking the difference.

I couldn’t find one face-on portrait – I imagine that his public image was carefully managed – a publicity photo is different from a mugshot. But in making a drawing easy, a mugshot is best. Quarter turn is much harder and sometime a profile even harder still.

I’m not sure this is a great likeness, but the elements are correct and I hope they help to both draw Dr Kings for school projects and tech a little about drawing faces in general.

I counted up – I drew him 43 times in practice – none of my drawings look like him, but have an essence of him – all 43 are people you feel you could meet in the street though.

We get so used to one or two photographs of a person, that become icons. If you met the person, you might think they look quite different to the public image. I’ve certainly found that in my time.
