How to Draw a Punk Teenager
Drawing a punk is the same as drawing a person but with punk details. ( Images)

Creating the punk look is dependent on many features. Hairstyle, jewellery, clothing and even piercings are all characteristics to consider when drawing your punk character. Drawing a punk teenager is exactly like drawing any other person but made to be punk by adding the extra punk details. Use details that are distinctly punk. Examples of these are wild hair, like mohawks, spike jewellery, and chunky black boots.

  1. 1

    Use simple shapes to start building out the basic human outline. An oval is a good shape to use for the head, and rectangles for the torso, legs and arms. The feet can just be drawn in as short rectangles. Draw hands first as a mitten shape and then add lines vertically to give the effect of fingers.

  2. 2

    Depending on whether your teenager is a boy or girl, you will have different options for clothing. A leather jacket is good for either. To draw this, start with straight lines around the arms and around the body. Create a collar at the neck with a long triangular shape on either side and meet at a point toward the bottom front of the jacket. Trousers can be drawn as straight lines around the legs. Big chunky boots can be drawn in blocky shapes. For girls, a short skirt which is like a square or rectangle can be drawn from the hips to the top of the thigh.

    Fill in the details. This is where the drawing will start to look punk. Choose a punk hairstyle like a mohawk. Piercings and metal jewellery can be added to look punk. An easy one to draw is the spiked bracelet. Draw two lines along the wrist to look like a wrist band. Now add triangles all along the bracelet for the spikes. Add pins onto the jacket. Add spikes to the shoulders of the jacket. You can easily add a plaid pattern to the trousers or skirt by drawing vertical lines evenly and then drawing horizontal lines across evenly.

    Add colour to make your character look more punk. Wild hair colours are a signature punk look.
