How to Draw Lionel Messi
The quadrennial World Cup has kicked off again, and this is the last time Lionel Messi will play for Argentina. The legendary soccer player may gradually withdraw from everyone's sight. Let's pick up our brushes and let this athlete run again on our paper.
List of Supplies:
Step 1: Carefully outline the player
First, we use a black pencil to draw a circle for the head, a slanted rectangle for the body, and then roughly draw the crossed legs. This step is suitable for beginners to determine the overall proportion. Next, we slowly erase the stiff lines and copy the lines in the picture. Draw the hair, the folds of the clothes, the muscle lines of the arms and thighs, and the shape of the shoes. Take your time, this step will take a little patience.
Step 2: Apply the Base Color
Let's use blue and flesh-colored pencils for step 2. First, replace the jersey and pants we drew in step 1 with blue lines. This is because the Argentina jersey is sky blue. Then we are ready to draw the details of the jersey, such as the vertical stripes on the jersey. Then replace the body parts we drew in step 1, such as the face, arms, and exposed calves, with flesh-colored lines.
Step 3: Secondary Coloration
This step is still relatively easy to color with colored pencils. First, use black and coffee colors for Macy's hair and beard coloring. Then color the body with flesh color. Next, we choose blue and white to color the jersey and pants. And for the socks and shoes, use our gray and black colors.
Step 4: Paint Details, Add Shadows
It’s necessary to add a little detail to make the whole painting more realistic, like a real Messi running. Start by painting shadows on the shirt and pants to make the clothes look creased. Paint yellow on our collar and brown on the bottom of our shoes. Make the whole painting more colorful. Finally, paint the iconic soccer ball so that an iconic Messi shooting shot is complete.
