Hello everybody it's Merrill. Welcome to the
fourth installment of you draw. Last time

Last time, we drew pink haired Nicki Minaj. This time we are going to be drawing the NBA's Most Valuble Player Derrick Rose. He has been one of my top requests. You might be asking, what is YOUDRAW?
You draw is an interactive figure
drawing series that you get a chance
to draw along with me.This series is made for graduates of my step-by-step videos. I am probably known best on YouTube for that series.
Many of my viewers have gotten too good for that approach. And
They need a new challenge. So this is the next step. If you wish, you can hit the link in the video description and you could print out the reference image.
You don't have to do that though. The image is on the screen.
let's get started. One order of business before I start talking about mister Derrick Rose. A lot of people that make the extra
effort to post video responses to my videos and i greatly appreciate that.
I really enjoy seeing your work.
It helps me see that I am helping people.
The column on the left of the screen are some of my favorite video responses. I encourage you to post yours. I will put your responses in a playlist that others can see and you will get hits.
Please keep posting those video responses.

I am starting out my drawing by scribbling in the shape.
Scribble lightly and dont worry about making mistakes.
Keep your lines light enough to erase with the pencil. Look for the overall shape. Don't worry about the outlines yet. Focus on drawing in the overall shape of Derrick Rose. You will definitely make changes to this as we progress with the drawing.
In a moment, pause the video and look!
Quickly scribble in what you see and then pause the video. Pause the video right now. There will be four of these breaks in this video.
There is no substitute for the real thing. Life Drawing. This is the internet version of life drawing. We will do our best. It will teach you what to look for when you draw from life in the future. This video series is the only interactive life drawing series on the internet.
I am teaching you from across the country or across the world.

2:04 Pause the video for a few minutes during each break and scribble out the "gesture". Dont look at my work, look at the reference image.
2:04 Try not to notice anything but his silhouette for now. Look for shapes in the negative space (under his arms).
2:22 Now you can "sculpt out" your contour lines.
2:32 Notice the DIFFERENCES! I was WAY OFF with my first guess (Most people are)! We correct our drawing with the contour lines.
4:37 By now, you should have completed the contour of the body. Its a video. Take your time. Go at your own pace.
6:25 Notice that most photo realistic portraits are LARGE in scale. The face will be a struggle.
6:42 Tip: I am using a mechanical pencil because the graphite is thinner. I will teach you how to shade with a pencil.
6:43 TIP: Squint your eyes and exaggurate the shadows on the face
7:53 Ink is absorbed in to the surface of a paper. Graphite slides on the top. The effect will be different.
I used the colored pencil because there is no tonal variation in the lettering of the jersey.
9:39 By now, if you haven't done so already, start your shading.
11:41 To finish a drawing, we must consider the qualities of edges
