Drawing Tips
Tips on How to Draw Jensen Ackles:

  • In this image of Justin his head is tilted at a slight angle.
  • The get the most accurate portrait, print out the grid image off Justin below using a ruler and pen, draw a line to trace the angle from one corner of his mouth to the other. Do the same drawing a line from one pupil to the other. This will give you a better sense of the angles.
  • He has interesting highlight areas in his eyes caused by studio flash photography. To keep these shapes crisp and white, outline them with a sharp, hard pencil (H, F). Then shade in with a softer pencil around them (B or 2B).
  • There are very subtle graduations in the tones in his hands and fingers, pay close attention to these to get your drawing looking realistic.
  • As a general rule, use hard pencils (F and H – H4) for lighter tones and soft pencils for darker tones (B – B6), although you can mix these for different effects.
  • See the section called “Building up Shadows” in our guide on “How to Shade Your Portrait” for help.
