The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Lightly sketch two small triangles close to each other for the soccer player's eyes. When you get the position and shapes right, darken the lines. Make the top lines longer and curvier for eyebrows. If you'd like, you can add a dot inside each eye for pupils, but the character looks cool with blank eyes.
Step 2: Below the eye on the left, draw a short, L-shaped line for the nose. Curve the bottom, right of the soccer player's nose a bit for the nostril. Below the nose, draw two short lines for the mouth and lower lip. Make the lower lip line shorter.
Step 3: Draw an angled line around the face for the lower part of the soccer player's head. The shape is narrow toward the bottom. The chin should be flat, and the jaw wide on the right side. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. Draw a line above the eye on the left for a bit of the athlete's forehead.
Step 4: On the right side, above the jaw, draw a short, curved line for the ear. On the left side of the ear, draw a short, wavy line for the sideburn. At the top, high above the eye, draw a series of short, curved, vertical lines for the first part of the soccer player's hair.
Step 5: Draw a series of short lines around the head to create the rest of the soccer player's hair. Don't draw every single strand of hair. Draw the overall shape of the flowing hair using short strokes. Draw a few wavy spikes at the top to give the hair the appearance of motion. Under the head, draw a short, curved shape for the neck.
