Lady Gaga, the Fashionista of the pop music world, has won 5 Grammy awards. I’m loving this because while doing this tutorial last night (Thursday, May 4, 2011), an American Idol contestant sang one of Lady Gaga’s unreleased songs (with the Queen of pop’s permission). I’m hoping you can learn to draw from this tutorial and find it helpful. Everyone… peace & joy to you with love!

Now sketch in the crescent shapes which help with head mass & also the strange leaf is a placement for Lady Gaga’s hand. And don’t forget that stem, which is her wrist.

Make sure you give a curving shape to the lines in this step. Observe the space between the lines and how c. & d. lines seem to continue as one. a.) is placed at her tear ducts, b.) is for the bottom of her nose, c.) runs through the middle of her mouth. d.) is for her back shoulder area & e.) represents her thumb.

Now you get a chance to start on her face. Draw lightly her bangs, eyes, side of face, nose, and mouth. Take your time. You can erase or leave your sketchy lines… whichever is most comfortable for you.

If you want, go ahead & take a break because there are plenty of lines to draw here. Look closely and follow the lines to her hair, eye pupils, a chrome-like piece on her face, ring, hand, glove, thumb, and the decorative throw over her shoulder.

The first picture is how your picture may look with the guidelines. You can erase them if you want. Check out how the second picture looks. Adding more defined lines, fluffing her hair, detailing her glove will add more realism. If you want to, but NOT NECESSARY, you can detail the shoulder decorative throw. Don’t get discouraged because there is a lot of detail on it.

Sketch it, babies! Yeah, you can use your mechanical pencil & lead at Fine or HB. Lightly make gentle back and forth motions all over her face. Now if you’re comfortable with circular motions… do it! Artists all over have their own style of drawing. Now look at your picture and blend with a tissue or some kind of blending stump. Though messy, it sure looks real. Am I right?

Lady Gaga is stepping out in this picture! To make her POP like here, use that CretaColor Monolith 9B Pencil. It doesn’t cost that much. As a matter of fact, you can get these products I mention at a Dick Blick store near you or online. Darken those lovely lashes, nails, and shadowed areas like her mouth and hair.

There she is ready for the stage, background, and all! Do you see those circles? It’s a simple kneaded rubber eraser shaped flat into a small circle and dabbed on the background shading. Cool!
