A Game of Thrones is the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of epic fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin. Tyrion Lannister, is the third and youngest child of Tywin and Joanna. He is a dwarf, a fact which causes him problems and persecution, although to some extent this is mitigated by his high social standing and his family’s impressive wealth and power. Tyrion is shrewd, educated, and calculating, but receives little respect for this from his father, because of his deformity, and the death of his mother during his birth. He is capable of cruelty to his enemies, but also has great sympathy for fellow outcasts and the mistreated.

Here is a drawing of Tyrion Lannister or Peter Dinklage.

Below are step by step how to draw Tyrion Lannister. First, I sketch out a basic geometry shape to define a head as seen in first image. I also draw in measurement horizontal line for eyes about half of the face height. Then vertical line to split the face in half and line up for the nose. Tip of the nose is located half way between eyes line and bottom of the chin. Mouth position will be half way between the tip of the nose and the bottom of the chin though mouth could be closer to the tip of the nose. Step two, once I have all the construction of the face layout from step one, I can now draw in eyes, nose and mouth onto the face.  Step three, I introduced mid tone value (shade) onto the drawing.  Step four, I slowly and accurately place light gray, medium gran and dark gray onto the right place on his face.  Step five and six, I add more detail to make it as close to the reference as I can and finished it up.

    I really like the way you did this one! It is really hard to draw Tyrion because of his large forehead. I did redraw all your GoT characters, I’ll finish with this one. Really thanks for this great examples!
