STEP 1. First draw a circle for the shape of his head and then add the facial guidelines as you see them here. You will also add a vertical line that connect to the facial guideline for his chest. Lastly draw an oval shaped circle to the left for his hand.   STEP 2. You will now sketch out the shape of his face, mainly the sides, jaw and chin. When that is done sketch out the lines for his eyes using the facial guidelines that you drew in step one. Sketch out the nose shape and then his mouth.   STEP 3. As you can see if you are a novice artists this may be a bit difficult to do. Originally this was a sketched image done using a charcoal pencil. I scanned my finish image into the comp and altered it from there. This sketch of Marlon Brando still can be done using a good sketching pencil or a regular No.2. You will start sketching out his eyes in more detail and then define them with shading. Move down to his mouth and finish sketching out the shape of his lips and then again use the shading technique to define Brando's lips. End this step by sketching out the left hand and fingers.   STEP 4. What I want you guys to do first here on step four is, finish sketching out his hand and fingers. You will also add some shading to detail and define his hand. Sketch out the nails and then you an finish sketching out the left side of Brando's face. Again, shade in the left side because remember you are mimicking the movie poster which has some dark areas. Once that is done add definition near the right side of his nose with an age frown line, and then sketch out the bow tie he is humbly wearing.   STEP 5. Start sketching out his hair line in this step and as you can see it is combed straight back. Back n the seventies, mobsters used to come their hair back with a fine comb. Sketch in the wrinkle lines on his forehead that he gracefully wears on his face without even caring. Next shade in more areas on his face like the right cheek lines, define his nose, add his mustache, detail and define his jowls which everyone tries to like whenever they mimic Marlon Brando, and then you will finish off sketching out his nice jacket, collar, and some wrinkle lines on his clothes.   STEP 6. Sketch in more definition and detail to his hair style and then add some shading to his left hand. Once that is complete you can go ahead and start erasing the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 7. once your drawing is cleaned up a bit, you should end up with a sketch that looks like this. I hope you guys liked learning how to draw Marlon Brando step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
