STEP 1. Begin the first step by drawing a circle shape for the head and then sketch in the facial guidelines.   STEP 2. Heads up, Johnny Depp's face shape is very boxy and or square. This is why it appears to be so...wide and unnatural. Don't forget his head is slightly tilted back. Using the shape you just made, begin sketching out the structure of his face. The jawline should have straight edges and the chin should be the same. Sketch in his pasted on bangs like so, as well as the hair that sticks to the sides of his face.   STEP 3. You will now start sketching out the funky, but Gothic style sunglasses that Barnabas wears. As you can see they are rounded on the insides, and straight across the top and sides. Draw the bridge part of the glasses which rests on the bridge of the nose, then draw the temples which are the parts that rest around the ears. Add some darkening around the top part of the glasses and then sketch in some of the creases around the eyes.   STEP 4. Like I said before, the head is slightly tilted back, so the nose will be drawn from a view like you where looking up his nostrils. To start, draw the flares of the nostrils, and then color in the nostril holes like so. You will then make a mark on the top which will add some structure to the nose. When that is done, sketch in the lines on the sides of his face which will give Johnny that sunken in cheek look. Sketch out the mouth as closed lips as well as the clef in his chin.   STEP 5. You are already almost done with this tutorial. You will finish drawing out his head in the form of his pasty style hair, and then draw out the simple shapes of his ears.   STEP 6. Next, you will finish Barnabas by drawing the high collar of his jacket, and then draw out the shape of his neck, as well as his stiff shirt collar. You can start cleaning up the drawing to prepare it for detailing, then color.   STEP 7. Sketch in the inner ear detailing as well as sketch in the definition to the middle part of his neck.   STEP 8. Here is what your drawing should look like when you are all done. Now you can enjoy coloring in this very dark, but very colorful character.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
