OK SO HERE WE GO;

I’ve been asked to do this kind of tutorial ever since I first started posting speed paints and art online so it’s about time that I sit down and make a little something for all of those who has asked me.

PS. it’s not super informative it’s basically just rambles but hopefully someone will find this useful?

Okay so first things first. You find yourself a reference picture of some sort, in my case I chose this picture of Kyungsoo ((bc he oWNS))

Once you’ve found a picture you start off by drawing the main form of the object that you want to draw (in this case Kyungsoo’s head)

Define the shape. Look at the jawline and where the neck and ears appear. You can also begin to sketch the shape of the hair and some other small detail that will make it easier to progress later on.

Draw the initial placement of the features. I usually prefer starting off by drawing the nose and work from there to make sure that things are in somewhat good relation to each other. Don’t worry too much about details and stuff like that and just focus on getting the things in the right places with the right distance in between.

Now comes the interesting and fun part - define the details. This step will take time and patience. Here you zoom in on different parts, one at a time, and focus on getting the right shapes and details regarding the features. You can use ‘lasso tool’ and ‘liquifying’ to get the things in order. Make sure to draw EXACTLY what you see and take your time, it will be worth it.

The 5th and somewhat last step can go on forever really - you decide when you feel like moving on onto shading etc. I didn’t really spend a lot of time here and just focused on making it resemble my reference picture as much as possible (which is the whole point lol) I used liquifying to make different parts broader and minimized his eyes an ounce as well as added a few more details.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that I think that it is completely finished but I just felt like sharing it nevertheless. Remember that all drawings are different and have different levels of difficulty so don’t feel discouraged if you can’t get it right the first couple of times.

I chose a fairly simple reference picture (mouth closed, straight forward perspective etc) and those are really good when practicing (which I still do a lot because I SUCK at line-art)

So yeah, just keep working, never give up and never feel obligated to do anything and just enjoy art and drawing instead, okay? Okay.
