Step 11. Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don’t line up. Take you kneaded eraser and dab off the shadow outlines or dark lines with your kneaded eraser for a more realistic look as you shade. Shading transition from dark to light (or visa versa) should be smooth… no harsh lines. Be patient with this, it’s not as complicated as you may think. As you do more pictures, this will come easier to you.

Step 6. Observe where Zayn’s features appear in relation to the guidelines. Draw in his nose, smile lines, and mouth.
Step 22. I cloned this background from the reference pic to add drama for my introduction picture and save time. Now, To help out with specific areas of highlights, tone, texture, etc., the next two following steps will show you.
Step 19. Here I used a tissue (which is soft) to smooth out his face. Darker pastel on the tissue I blended more around his cheek, jaw, nose and under his eyebrows. I took my blending stump to “draw” in more lines, add more strokes to his hair. His eyebrows, chin, neck and jacket I also smoothed with my blending stump. I needed to whiten areas like the reflective light on the side of his face, highlights on his nose and lips. I cleaned his eyes and dotted the catch lights. I did this cleaning with my kneaded eraser.

Step 15. Best thing you can do when drawing hair is to establish the general shape then work in the main strands of hair by holding your pencil at a 45 degree angle for stroking and coverage. Then, as in the third picture, you can work in more details. But here’s a TIP! Don’t draw a straight line for the hairline. Do tiny strokes to represent beginning of hair at its root. Look at real people and see their hairline isn’t a straight line. Practice and your picture will look more realistic.
Step 4. You can draw in the lines a. for eyebrows, b. for eyes, c. for nose, and d. for mouth.

Step 14. PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE — For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.
Step 10. I made this line drawing especially for you if you don’t want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

One Direction, a British-Irish boy band consists of members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. Good news! The band plan to have an album made in November. That will make plenty of fans happy. Since my friends here at DragoArt has requested numerous times for these guys, I opted to do Zayn Malik this time, which I hope you will enjoy. Please fav, show your love, and comment. Thank you all. Peace and love to you.
Step 18. Before I started the pastel application, I erased dark outlines on the nose, lips, smiling lines for a more realistic shading. Now I can start with the pastel application. If you do the whole picture in a pencil sketch, this is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I’ve got area coverage. Applied light to medium gray to his face, hair and neck. I added dark gray to his hair, eyebrows, jacket, and scarf. Looks like a mess, but that’s how a some beginning projects will appear. Keep patience with you and keep applying those layers of whites, grays & blacks. You’ll have a great outcome.

Step 17. After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.
Step 24. Click on this picture to see how Tone, Shading, Texture, and Reflective Light affects Zayn Malik who is an amazing singer, and I had enjoyed sooo much on the when he appeared on The Olympics closing with his band members of One Direction! I am closing out now. But you all have been wonderful and it has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. And I will definitely reply back soon or eventually. Love, peace, happiness, success, and more beautiful days to ya! *hug* *blowkiss*
Step 23. Without highlights, your picture would have a flat appearance. Click on this picture to learn how to make your own picture POP out!

Step 8. When you sketch his hair, add those straight lines and curls. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of his hair. This will help as you shade it in.
Step 1. Draw the oval lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 13. The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/detailed strokes. UNDERHAND: Holding the pencil at a 45 degrees or near level to the table with end of pencil under your palm with pencil on the flat side, gives you large shading coverage. With the No.2 pencil, you have the exposed lead side to shade with. But for a wider swath, use that Cretacolor Monolith graphite pencil with no wood casing. The whole sharpened portion is all lead, like in the step’s picture. Practice the toning values to help you with control.

Step 7. Watch closely how Zayn’s face outline, jawline, chin, and ear relate to the guidelines. As you draw, you will have more accuracy.
Step 16. The picture here is a great exercise for value shading. I’ve got a little secret tip for you to make things easier. You can download this to your desktop. First click on the picture to have access to full size. By right clicking on your mouse, you can select “Save Image As.” It should save to your desktop.
Step 21. Basically, I added more highlights with Titanium White Acrylics to the catch lights in his eyes and lip shine. I also added a tiny bit to the side of his hair, showing the close cut at his temple. TIP: I darkened this picture (in my photo-editing program) to appear more like my original picture and reference because my scanner had imbalanced the brightness and contrast. Now Zayn “pops” out!
Step 2. Now draw in the bisecting red line to balance his facial features.
