We begin a very important drawing tutorial for us. Now we will draw a person who means a lot to us. Tupac Shakur had a great influence on the development of world culture. And besides that, he influenced each of the Drawingforall team members. With great excitement and a sense of responsibility, we begin the drawing lesson about how to draw 2pac.
We will draw the figure of a great man with the general rules of drawing. From the point of view of anatomy, we have a slim male figure that stands in the frontal position. Body height is equal to the sum of the lengths of five heads. The chest should be slightly wider than the pelvis.
Sketch out the shape of the body which slightly narrows at the waist. Outline a triangular pelvis as shown in our picture. After that sketch out the arms and legs with ordinary geometric shapes. Recall that in the first steps we should use very light lines.
Let’s now add some details to this figure. Let’s start with the head, outlining headband, eyes, nose and mouth. On the head also sketch out the contours of cigarette and ears. Further, we move lower and sketch out the outlines of the decorative chain, pants and holster on the belt.
Now let’s start drawing the details of this great man’s appearance. Starting from the head, we gently draw out closed eyes, nose and mouth. After that, carefully draw the outlines of the jaw with a beard, ears and headband. Take the eraser and gently erase all unnecessary guidelines from the head.
Now we will draw out the details of the body. Continuing the lines of the jaw we draw the shoulders and draw a trapezoid muscles. A little below draw lines of clavicles and well defined muscles pectoral muscles. Drawing wide back muscles and abdominals.
Now let’s draw the arms. First draw the large deltoid muscles, a little lower draw the biceps, triceps and muscles of the forearms. Draw hands clenched into fists and erase all the guidelines. You should read this drawing lesson so as not to have any difficulties with drawing fists.
In this step we will draw pants and shoes in detail. First draw the outer contours and erase the guidelines from the first three steps. We should draw wide pants. But do not forget to draw a slight constriction at the feet.
After that you should draw folds. It looks like regular short flowing lines. It is very important to note the correct location of these folds.
It’s time to work with the up shadows. In order to draw the shadows correctly, first imagine where the light comes from. Next, taking this into account, carefully sketch the outlines of the shadows and paint them with hatching. For a darker hatching, you can add another layer of hatching, and for lighter shadows, just use less dense hatching.
So, we have finished the drawing lesson of this great man. We tried to do it with a sense of responsibility. We hope that you got a great result.
