Megan Fox-Drawing Process by Live4ArtInLA Megan Fox-Drawing Process by Live4ArtInLA
Because Iíve had a few requests to see my drawing process. As Iíve said, while I layer colours a lot, I donít apply a full colour layer and then another, rather, I work through small areas and complete those areas before moving on.

Words are evil. Pictures are easier than explaining. :)

Could I ask how you got the proportions down so well? That's one thing I'm really having trouble with right now. Thank you~ And by the way, the amount of detail you put in this and this piece overall is amazing. :3

I wish I had a magic formula or an easy answer. To be honest, I'm just rather good with spatial/free hand drawing. A couple of techniques I know others have found helpful is the grid technique, or drawing your subject matter from an upside down view (the drawing itself is upside down, not you. :) ) I recommend you draw "regular" faces first before attempting to create a portrait of someone very recognizable, as they are much harder to depict because we know exactly where the imperfections are if we see any in a drawing.
Remember, when drawing portraits there are GENERAL mathematical rules to follow, as the human face can be measured out to create a realistic portrait:
1) The eyes sit directly in the middle between the top of the head (not the hairline!) and the chin.
2) The bottom of the nose usually sits half way between the top of the eyes and the bottom of the chin, with the sides of the nose lining up with the tear ducts of the eyes.
3) The ears tend to be positioned from the tops of the eyes to the bottom of the nose
4) The bottom lip generally ends at the half way point between the bottom of the nose and the bottom of the chin.
5) The width of the eye tends to be equal to the width between the eyes. The face itself is approx five "eyes" wide.
Hope this helps, and happy drawing!

Thank you! These are really helpful. I'll definitely try the upside down technique. Please keep doing what you do and thanks again for the tips! :)

Thanks for this... I have always wondered how great artists work.

I've thought about drawing Megan Fox for a while... This is great.

Start small - draw an eye or a mouth - maybe looking at my Darren Criss Eyes drawing gives a better look at how I draw and add colour.

How do you manage not to let any of the red pencil remain behind? Is it erasable? I need to try colored pencils one more time...

It shows red on your monitor? I actually draw with one of the flesh colours I will be using, and I erase some of the guideline lines and simply colour over others. Use a GOOD softer-lead colour pencil. Most are far too hard.

I've also seen them in larger office supply stores, like Staples and Office Depot, and, obviously, art supply stores.
