STEP 1. Begin your first step by making the shape for Phelps' head. Sketch in the facial guidelines like so before proceeding to the next step.   STEP 2. The next thing you want to do is carefully sketch out the actual shape and structure of Michael's forehead and face. Notice that Phelps has a long shaped face. The cheek and chin should be properly angled for a nice structured look. Include the shape of the ear, then draw in the hair line.   STEP 3. Remember, you are drawing Michael Phelps on a 3/4 view so his features will need to be sketch in on that angle. Start by drawing the eyebrows, then color them in solid. Draw the shape of the nose as well before moving to step four.   STEP 4. Using the guidelines draw out the shapes of his eyes, and as you can see they are in a very expressive look. Finish off the nose by drawing the nostril flares as well as the inside of the nose or the actual nostril itself. Sketch the frown lines around the mouth which come down from the sides of the nose, then draw the outline of his mouth.   STEP 5. Finish the eyes by drawing and coloring in the eyeballs, sketch in the crease lines under the eyes, then draw in the teeth, dimple, and chin arch. You will also need to add detailing inside of his ear as well and on the temple.   STEP 6. Finally, we will finish Michael Phelps off by sketching out his hairstyle which is short and simple, then draw the shape of his neck, as well as his nicely toned shoulders. Add definition on the shoulders and neck, then you can start erasing the mistakes that you may have made along the way.   STEP 7. Here is what Michael Phelps looks like when you are all done. Now you can either color him in, or leave your drawing as a nice sketch.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
