Lord Krishna Drawing Step by Step -

Drawing Reference Grids and Outlining

  1. Before directly starting outlining, you need to draw grids according to the ratio of your drawing reference.
  2. Ratios like 3:4 , 16:9, 1:1, etc.
  3. Here, I have used 3:4 ratio for my drawing with maximum dimension of 18cm * 24cm on A5 size paper.
  4. outer rectangle is divided into 9 rectangles of size 6cm * 9cm each. then every rectangle of those 9 rectangles are divided into 9 rectangles again. So, there are total 81 rectangles.
  5. After that by taking reference with respect to every rectangle start drawing outlines.

Shading and Blending of Face

  3. Here I have used graphite for this.
  4. For this you need tools like pencil, Graphite powder, brushes, kneadable eraser, cotton, etc.
  5. Always remember one thing never do very light shading because darkness always add more life and realistic touch.

Add Darkness to Hair -

  1. For hair first add darkness directly with soft charcoal.
  2. I have also used soft charcoal stick to add dark black effect to hair.
  3. then blend it properly using brush. So, that additional charcoal will be removed from paper.
  4. For adding fine details or to fill darkness in small areas use soft charcoal pencil.
  5. then to add realistic effect and to show hair highlights use eraser. First do it with kneadable eraser and then add highlights using mono eraser(use sharped normal eraser otherwise).
