Step 1

Depending on the size you want your Gandhi portrait to be, draw each shape to your liking. Start with a circle and then draw the lower part of the face as you see here. When connecting the frame your face will look elongated. Add the facial principles and move on to the next step.

Step 2

Since his face is old, your lining should be a little wavy. Outline the left ear, then continue to draw the same liner until the lower part of the face is drawn. This should be his jaw and chin. Add some cleavage lines to show the two parts of his face, then use the facial guides to draw his little round glasses instead of his eyes.

Step 3

Gandhi is almost bald so you don’t have to worry about sketching a bunch of hair. You want to draw the shape of the rest of his head, then add some interior details to his left ear and draw the right ear as well. Draw the rest of his glasses on top of his ears, then outline his friendly-looking eyes and add some fine lines.

Step 4

Draw the wrinkles on the forehead, and then outline the thick and bold eyebrows. Draw and color in his eyes and/or pupils, then outline the shape of his nose. Next, draw wrinkled lines flowing from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Next outline the facial hair, then detail the mouth and chin lines.

Step 5

For the final drawing step, all you need to do is sketch out some nice, soft hair, then add details to his mustache. Draw the shape of his neck, and then draw the lining for his clothes as you see here. Erase all the guides and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up your sketch.

Step 6

After you add some shadows to his face, neck and clothes, your Gandhi portrait will appear like the one you see here. You can choose to color him, or you can leave him as a simple sketch like he is a simple man.
