Drawing of Rosé(Roseanne Park), from K-pop group BLACKPINK.
Step 1: Basic sketch
Start by lightly sketching an oval for the head. This will be the background of the face.
Add a vertical line in the middle of the oval and a horizontal line in the middle. They will serve as guides for placing facial features.
Gently outline the basic shapes for the eyes, nose, and mouth. Remember to keep it simple at this stage.
Step 2: Eyes
Develop the eye shape by adding details. Add iris, pupil, and highlight (a small white area) to each eye.
Use a variety of colored pencils to add depth and dimension to the eyes. Apply darker colors around the edges and lighter colors towards the center.
Step 3: Nose
Add more definition to the nose by outlining the nostrils and shaping the bridge of the nose.
Use light strokes with crayons to gradually build up the tone and texture of the nose.
Step 4: Lips
Define the lips by outlining their outline. Pay attention to the shape of the upper and lower lips.
Use a variety of colors to create shadows and highlight areas on the lips, making them look three-dimensional.
Step 5: Skin
Start coloring the skin in light, even layers. Start with a base color that matches the intended skin tone.
Layer different colors to create shadows and highlights. Skin isn’t just one color; it has subtle variations.
Use the blend tool or gently layer colors to smooth out transitions and create more realistic skin textures.
Step 6: Hair
Start with the hairline and basic hair shape. Hair can be divided into sections to make it easier to color.
Use a variety of strokes to simulate different hair textures – straight, wavy, curly, etc.
Layer different shades of your chosen hair color to create depth and volume.
Step 7: Final details
Tweak the features and adjust any scaling if necessary.
Add small details like eyelashes, eyebrows and any accessories.
