5 ways to draw a portrait – Wentworth Miller

One of my first memories as a child is a paper, some crayons & myself,

Sitting and painting with different shapes & lines,

As me and my painting were the only things occupying my world of thoughts. 

Many people I know & don’t know have told me more than once or twice:

” How do you draw/paint like this? I wish I could do that too…”

And then I started remembering (with laughter) my first drawings/ paintings

From back then when I was a child, 

And let me tell you my friends, those drawings/ paintings weren’t too impressive

And that’s an understatement…

The first portrait that I’m going to share with on this blog is:

The portrait of the wonderful actor & writer Wentworth Miller.

When I finished watching the American television serial “Prison Break”

(With a slight delay of about a decade after it was broadcast…),

It became very clear to me that I was going to draw Miller’s portrait. 

Personally I enjoy drawing the portraits of celebrities that

I find their talents/ creations/ personalities to be very inspiring,

And Miller is definitely no exception. 

So here’s a documentation of the process of Miller’s portrait: 


For the full portrait click HERE

And now for the practical part: 5 ways to draw a portrait – Wentworth Miller: 

1. Choosing the right picture – 

Is your chosen picture for the portrait is highly edited? Is it terribly photoshopped,

To the point where the person you want to draw is hardly recognizable? 

Skip that one & choose a picture that reflects most

The image of the person you want to draw.

(Do you know Wentworth Miller in person? allow yourselves to skip

This paragraph & a few other more 🙂 )

2. Documenting the drawing’s process – 

I’ve found, that using your mobile phone to observe through its screen

The process of drawing a portrait and the drawing itself, gives you

A great indication to whether you’re heading in the right direction

Toward a portrait that does justice with its subject, or whether you’re not.

3. Proportions, proportions, proportions – 

One of the most important things when it comes to drawing a portrait is

Drawing in the right proportions, the facial features themselves

And their relative position to one another. 

Unless you’re very perceptive, my recommendation to you is to start with 

The entire outline of the face & the relative position of the facial features,

And only then focus on the little details of the facial features, one by one. 

To me personally this method really helps.

4. Drawing technique – 

As long as you look at the portrait that you drew and don’t scream in shock: 

“Oh my, it really looks the same as in the picture!”,

Please keep on drawing in a way that you’ll be able to erase easily 

Any detail you choose to. At this point of the drawing process,

I’d recommend you to use HB/B/2B pencils.

Did you get to the point where you screamed in shock,

Your mother screamed & the neigbor as well? Good for you,

Change to a 5B pencil or higher, say goodbye to the eraser,

And sharpen all the facial features & outlines of the portrait,

In order to upgrade it into a maximum level of precision & liveliness.

5. A moment of peace – 

After the completion of drawing every facial feature,

Make sure to take a short break, before continuing to draw again.

You’d be surprised how many corrections 

You’d be making afterwards, corrections that wouldn’t have taken place otherwise. 

A few moments away from the drawing will allow you to look at it again

With refreshed and more objective eyes.

I hope you’ll find my drawing tips useful with the next portraits you’ll draw.

On my next posts I’ll share with you more tips for beginners & advanced as well.
