Pen Drawing Of Lionel Messi

in #ntopaz5 years ago (edited)

This work is a frestyle drawing therefore I tried to express myself using three major colors - blue, black and red. The model I used is Lionel Messi. He is arguably the greatest footballer of all time.


He is a left footed player with tremendous skills. He has won the Mens Best footballer of the year for 5 times along with Christiano Ronaldo.

One thing I love about him is that he is a cool gentle man that doesn't talk a lot but does a lot on the pitch.

Here is the reference photo I used to create this piece.

Development Process

Step 1 - I sketched out my model with blue pen.

Step 2 - I focused on his hair using blue, black and red ball pen.After that, I started working on his face using vertical strokes. At this stage, only eyes and right ear have been completed.

Step 3 - I completed other parts of his face especially his beards. I added tones and values to make the work look real.

Step 4 - I compled the work by working on his neck and shirt.
final piece

I welcome and appreciate every comment and suggestion. Thank you.


No @maxwellmarcusart, Messi is not possibly the best player... he really is. ;)

Beautiful job!!! It looks a lot like him and all this with only 3 colors is incredibly fantastic. <3 <3 <3

Haha oh really? Some will have their reasons to ague that he is not the best but Ronaldo is.

Thanks for dropping by.

You catch Messy's characteristic image ~ From the top to the bottom, brushstroke is lined by the so many lines ~ It seems so fascinating ~

Awnn! Am happy to hear that. Thank you.
