How to Draw a Teenage Guy

Teenage guys have certain characteristics that distinguish them from young boys and older men. When you are drawing a teenage guy, you will need to incorporate the teenage style of the guy, as well as his body language and facial expression. Cartoons can be a little exaggerated, so use these characteristics to bring your drawing to life and to make your teenage boy an obvious part of his generation. If you are drawing a real-life figure, try to put a lot of attention on the way the guy stands or looks at you to let his character show thorough in your drawing.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Sort through cartoons and magazine clippings to get some examples of the teenage character that you want to create in your drawing. You can pull ideas from different sources---such as the clothing style from one guy and the body language of another guy---to draw a teenage guy to fit your characterisation or storyline.

  2. 2

    Focus on the facial expression and hair style of the teenage boy you are drawing. You may want to give him a trendy hair style, and create an expression that has a smirk for the mouth and raised eyebrows to create a character with the edgy attitude of a teenage boy.

  3. 3

    Draw the body of the teenage boy to resemble a figure that is growing up, but is still coming into his own. His shoulders should not be too broad, and his clothes should look a little large and ill-fitting. You can make one style mark stand out by drawing it a little bigger than the other items. For example, make an eyebrow ring or skate shoes a little larger so that they are a mark for the teenager's character.
