Drawing Tips
Tips on How to Draw Jennifer Lawrence:

  • To get your drawing of Jennifer Lawrence looking as realistic as possible, try to spend time working on getting the shapes of her feature accurately positioned on your grid.
  • A mistake many people make when drawing is “stylizing” shapes, because your mind has been trained to think of lips or eyes as being a certain shape.
  • A way to avoid this is to concentrate on one grid block at a time and try to look at the shapes as abstract.
  • Look at the shadow under Jennifer’s bottom lip as an example. Try not to think of it as a lip, instead see it as an abstract shape – see the angle and size of it in relation to its position within the grid square.
  • Then apply that way of seeing “abstract shapes” one block at a time to the rest of your grid drawing.
  • When you have completed penciling in the shapes of her features, erase your grid and begin shading.
  • Focus on the different tones in the drawing and how they blend into to each other to create the roundness, curves and fullness of her face and features.
  • See how the subtle shades of gray on her cheeks blend into darker tones as they recede back towards her ears and down towards her jaw line.
  • The more you look at the reference image and notice these changes, the easier it will be for you to shade your drawing.
  • Look closely at all the details. See the shadow cast by the lock of her hair on the top of her left cheek and the shadows cast by her eyelashes on the top section of her eyeballs and irises.
  • Good luck with your drawing!
