Drawing Swamp Things face step by step in easy to follow photos of the main drawing steps. Swamp Thing is a classic DC character from the comic book of the same name and various Artists over the years have drawn him well and very inspiring. Including Bernie Wrightson and Steve Bissette.

This step by step drawing tutorial is meant as a inspirational look at drawing Swamp Things head and face and should help you draw this yourself.

Sketch a curved line for the head

Draw in some rough lines for the eye brow shapes

Sketch in some eye outlines and frown lines to act as guides

Sketch the skull like nose in and start to mark in the tree branch mustache

Draw in some tree branches which will act as markers for facial elements like the cheek bones etc

Now draw in the eyes and lips of the Swamp Thing with some slight pencil shading

Add pencil shading around the eyes and also add extra wrinkles to make the face look earthy

The face is filling out a bit now, so time to do extra detail on the branch parts

Extra facial detailing and shadows

Still more tiny details, this is the part when you wonder when to stop the pencil drawing

Nearly done...

Your pencil drawing should be complete

Time to start inking, around the eyes is a good place to start

Try and work some shading in there with cross hatching and some thick black lines

Inking the drawing you can clear up and show the design in a much better light

Inking small details can be fun

And we are finished for the Swamp Things face

How To Draw A Demon Clown Face

Drawing a Demonic Clown face step by step with this set of drawings as I went along. This post is an attempt to accompany my other blog post with the video on drawing a Demonic Clown face and this should be seen as an extra alternative drawing tutorial which I hope you also find quite useful.

Step 1 - Draw an oval shape for the head. This is the typical first step in which you can build any face drawing.

Step 2 - Begin to sketch the eyes and the Clowns red nose. Once you have these roughly sketched in lightly you can start to loosely draw other parts of the face.

Step 3 - The mouth makes or breaks your demonic Clowns face, so the more teeth the better. An evil grin or a menacing grin.

Step 4 - Sketch some more loose details around the mouth.

Step 5 - Darken the pencil lines around the eyes and the nose.

Step 6 - Darken the pencil line around the jaw and begin to sketch in the ears (See this on drawing ears)

Step 7 - Inking begins with a nice fine line ink pen. Don't worry about trying the latest greatest and most expensive ink pens, cheap ones work well.

Step 8 - Start inking those evil looking teeth.

Step 9 - A few more carefully inked details, take your time inking your demon clown face.

Step 10 -Start to ink around the face edges, jaw line and ears.

Step 11 - Ink some of the previously pencil sketched details and don't be afraid to add or improve on your original pencil sketch design.

Step 12 - Ink the mouth with cross hatching in which lines of ink are layered over the other to look rather sketchy and arty.
