Drawing Miranda Kerr Portrait - Step By Step Process

in #art4 years ago


Charcoal Time-Lapse Portrait
Materials: Charbothello chalk-pastel, General's Charcoal Charcoal Black Medium,
Strathmore Bristol 300, Charcoal Primo, uni-ball Signo

Music: Last Summer - Ikson


Do a proportional sketch of the whole portrait and then start to shade it in and get an accurate sketch. Avoid outlining all of the features if you're going for realism. Avoid outlining all of the features with heavy outlines especially like the sides of the nose or that sort of gap between the nostrils those areas don't need to be heavily outlined. It's just subtle shading.


Really look at how those tones and values transition into each other. As I'm drawing each feature you will see some reoccurring mistakes like outlining parts of the features is quite harshly done. I just used the black charcoal pencil for her hair. It was simpler to do this hairstyle then if it had more values because hers was basically pretty much black.


Next, I get some powdered charcoal with a blending stick and blend it out all over to get a nice base layer and add any shadows so on the sides of the face where it'll be darker. I'm using a smaller blending stick to add the shadows and the contours around the face and the body. I just used a bit more powder on there to make it a bit darker. There you can see that it looks really smooth.


Then I go in with a 557-2b med charcoal pencil and add in the detail. I used the charcoal pencil with a really sharp point to get in those eyelashes on the bottom lower lash line. I use the mono zero erasers to pull out some extra hairs and the hairs that are highlighted to give a bit more dimension and make it look highlighted and stand out more.

Wow, you are really talented. Keep up the good work! It would be awesome if you posted some tutorials on how to draw; I'd love to try to follow along (though I know I'll epic fail...)

Even I would love that. I have a little artist in me and a basic tutorial by someone so talented would prove motivating. Probably you could give rise to some new talent (though I know that won't be me ;) )

@manilagg. Nothing is impossible, I sure you’ll be very talented.

Thank you for having said that. But I am a full time coder and coding sucks every else talent from you.. haha (just kidding or probably not ;) )

Yeah, maybe I'll be making real-time tutorials soon. Thank you!

Vaan K. Art right. I have followed you in everywhere possible. Subscribed to your YouTube channel, facebook, etc. Seeing and viewing your art works carries in it all the motivation that I need to grow in my art career. Am amazed at the rate you were able to have more than 3,000 YouTube subscribers in less than a month, and you've risen to be a whale here on steemit. I really need your mentorship to bring out my talent to limelight. You're an extraordinary artist

Wow thank you @whizart I am flattered. I just checked out your art. It’s really nice. I’m sure you will be successful soon. Thanks for the words of encouragement. I wish you the best! :)

Thanks sir @vaansteam. I feel honoured to have received your reply, ain't easy to spare out time to reply to all your messages considering how busy you'd be... I hope I become successful soon. Your support is highly needed to achieve this. Thanks

Excellent drawing and better finish, @vaansteam. The technique you use is clean and detailed. I am a lover of good painting and this is a really good portrait. Can you imagine if Miranda Kerr could see your work!? Congratulations!

Thank you for the compliment! Nice to know someone who loves art. And I don't think Miranda will ever will haha

Amazing friend, quite realistic. I am aware that the portraits are very complicated to do, be it black and white or color. It should delineate very subtly and focus on each element of the face.

I loved how you used the game of shadows especially on the chin up to the neck, and the details of the hair also shows a good job. I think it's great that you explain the procedure in order to learn one thing or another.

Thank you friend. I guessing you’re an artist as well.

wow it looks very realistic. great drawing vaan, you always amaze me

Thank you Maria! You always have something nice to say. :)

The portrait of Miranda Keer painted by you is very beautiful and very realistic too, it impressed me from the very beginning and with every step it was getting better and better! Chapeau bas @vaansteam! 👏

Thank you @adazone. I’m gald you were impressed with my art :)

Keep up the good work :)

I will! Thank you!

I always sharpen the pencils to a point :)

Really goooood. I hope I'll learn to do this soon. You are so amazing and talented @vaansteam

Beautiful painting. You make it seem easy. I wish I had the time to draw. Im trying to find the time to learn a new language for now.

Wow learining a new language is really hard. Wish you luck! :)

Some posts before this I remember I said that I want to learn to draw. Today I made my first one, sort of a cartoon, but I feel happy for that. It's a start :D, so I have to say thank you.

Yeah I remember, I'm still waiting to see your artwork :)

Now I have to say that's amazing

Thank you!. I'm happy you think so! :)

Beautiful face, it is really well designed with shadows in the right place, especially it seems real ..

With the right shadows in the right place it should look real :)

Really spectacular your drawing technique, I really liked the video, I congratulate you I wish you many successes with your art.

Thank you @betzaelcorvo I wish u success too

The hair to me is the excellent piece of art, where it brings the portrait to life. Good shading as well.

Hair is very important and every details need to be there

Good job of capturing the girl's charming smile. And thank you.

Your welcome and thank you, my friend!

This is superb! I'm also an artist too (pen artist) I really love the progression from the sketch to final portrayal

I see you're very good with the pen. I hope to more of your art soon :)

Awesome man! Drawing is almost flawless!

Thank you! Always trying to improve

Amazing and good job @vaansteam Nice concept and idea is great. Thanks for this new update.

Beautiful portrait of beautiful lady Miranda Kerr. I think real Miranda Kerr would love this nice sketch of her. Your artistic skill and Miranda Kerr both are adorable.

Yeah she’s a beautiful lady :) thank you @akdx

Welcome dear!

Really good work ! Looking forward for more hot girls ;)

Thank you. But I don’t know if I wanna keep drawing hot girl :)

Very lively and emotional, thanks to the correct transitions of shadow and light on the face!

Shadow and light are very important. Thank you :)

You did not use strokes for chiaroscuro. What material did you use for shading? Coal?

Oh man you've got skills, you achieve really great depth

Beautiful, love the details in the hair!

Thank you, glad you love it!

I'm a fan of charcoal drawing and this one amazed me <3

Thank you. I love working with charcoal even though it's little messy


Very good drawing, you have been perfect you're a genius.

great drawing!

Delightful face, it is extremely very much composed with shadows in the perfect place. Good work [email protected]

Thank you. I’ll try my best! :)

great work of art where you stand out applying your techniques of effect and shadows, I congratulate you I really liked your drawing. slaudos from venezuela, successful

Thank you! I really appreciate your comment! :)

increíble proceso creativo

Gosh, I didn't know that you can draw like this! Absolutely stunning, bravo :D

Thank you so much @wilhb81

What a beautiful talent, Each portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the model. Painting like Renaissance painters, it took me a few years, painting as children took me a lifetime.

I did put a lot and time in all my drawing and wanted to improve every time. Thank you :)

Thank you for your great posts @vaansteam. Seeing you make so much Steem has inspired me to start drawing again.

Tu trabajo es pulcro y bien planteado. Tenemos pensado organizar un concurso de retratos y nos gustaría que fueras uno de nuestros jueces. Seria todo un gusto poder contar contigo. Saludos hermano bohemio del arte pictórico
