One of the ways is through representation of image sequences on paper with pencils or pen. In this post, i will be making a pencil tutorial for you all to gain from STEP by STEP.

Now lets go to the Step by Step stages of this portrait.

  1. This is the stage where the paper is prepared for sketch. in getting the paper ready, a pencil and a ruler is used to make grid on the paper so as to be able to capture the resemblance of the reference picture i intend working with. When this is done, i was able to sketch out the shape of the reference picture.
  2. After sketching the shape of the reference picture, i moved on to the stage of highlighting the figures and parts of the face which shows the format and sequencial representation of where the eyes, nose, mouth and the ear. In this stage, this is where the detailing starts and this shows whether your resemblance is perfect with what you have on the reference picture. If there is mistake in the sketch, there will be problem with the resemblance in the reference picture. This means that this stage is a crucial stage where enough time is needed to be spent on the sequencing.

the sketch is accurate and perfect and this means that we are ready for the next stage.

  1. At this stage, we go into the shading of the sketch that we have made. when shading, it should be done gradually following box by box. This stage entails the detailing of the skin just as it is seen in the picture. In showing the 3D Effect, lets see this image below. The way its position is what explains the tone and the tint which made the drawing 3D Effect.

Just in the same process of shading, the whole boxes will be shaded accordingly. Other pictures till its final processing till framing are shown below:
