How To Draw Billie Eilish using beginner art techniques. Fan Art Drawing Lesson.
This beginners art lesson will teach you the basics of drawing Superstar Singer and Performer Billie’s portrait, which looks very complex with flat light and a lot of detail, but simplified using beginners graphite pencil drawing techniques.
You can see in real time and fully narrated how using the simple shapes techniques and a basic guide line grid you can draw a portrait of anyone.
This art tutorial takes you from a blank piece of paper with a 2b pencil (you can use an HB), a bald fine liner, felt tips from Poundland and Pencil crayons that are over 20 years old, to a full figure drawing of Billie Eilish in real time in three hours.
Just for fun here is my drawing time-lapse of Cellist Sheku-Kanneh Mason. Sheku is part of an amazing family of classical musicians where all 7 Kanneh-Mason children play instruments. Four of the family are currently studying at the Royal College of Music in London and Sheku’s sister Isata is a concert pianist.
Sheku came to worldwide prominence in 2018 aged 19 when he played at the Royal Wedding in Windsor Castle of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markel. His performance at their wedding while they signed the register was seen by a phenomenal global audience of nearly 2 billion people.
Sheku also won the prestigious BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2016.
My beginners art tutorial ‘How to Draw Anything! The Basics Part 1 Using Shapes’ on youtube has now had over 200,000 views (As of February 15th 2017).
I produced this video in 2014 showing simple techniques that I learned from many books over 30 years ago about drawing and distilling them into a short 22 minute real time video to simply encourage people to have a go at drawing and to enjoy art.
Since then it has been lovely getting lots of comments that this simple art lesson has helped many people to enjoy drawing and develop their artistic creativity.
