Drawing Tips
Tips on How to Draw Kesha:

  • While you are learning how to draw Kesha – take some time to observe all the detail in the reference photo
  • Notice how some areas in the photo (like her eyes) are in focus, while other areas are out of focus (see her chin)
  • To get the same effect in your drawing you’ll need to use varied drawing techniques
  • For the ‘in focus’ areas, you’ll need to make crisp lines with sharp pencils
  • For the ‘out of focus’ areas, a combination of light shading with softer pencils (2B, 4B) and blending with a tissue or kitchen towel will do the trick
  • Spend some time on the glitter on Kesha’s cheeks. To get the same sparkling effect in your drawing you’ll have to keep the sparkly areas bright white
  • To do this outline the dots with a sharp pencil (H, HB, F) – buts don’t press too hard. The outline should not be darker that her skin tone
  • See the section called “Building up Shadows” in our guide on “How to Shade Your Portrait” for help.
