How to Draw Barack Obama
Step 1. Start with a circle for the head, and then add the facial guidelines. Trace vertical lines on the neck and shoulders.
Step 2. You will now start sketching, extending the outline of his face starting with the jaws and going on with the right side of the face including cheekbones. Sketch out the lining for his eyes as shown here and then refine his left ear with details. Once you have done this, you can move to the next step.
Step 3. Now take your pencil and draw the shape of his eyebrows, and then shade them. Next finish with Obama’s eyes and outline his nose. You are doing a great job. Just take your time and erase mistaken lines where needed.
Step 4. First, outline his hair as shown there and then go on with his ear. When you are done with his neck and mouth, let’s add a smile as shown there. Sketch the lining for his suit and move to the next step.
Step 5. With your pencil shade his cheeks and refine the smile including teeth. Draw the shape of his shoulders and then the collar of his shirt.
Step 6. Refine the shape of his head and hair and shade them as shown in red lines. Shading will make the portrait of Barack Obama more detailed and precise. Before you start shading, erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
Step 7. And here you have a finished portrait of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States.
