How to draw Margaery Tyrell from Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings. Learn to draw Margaery Tyrell using Chiaroscuro technique from step by step with instruction. In this tutorial, you will learn to draw by using extremes in values (more light and dark values than middle values) you create a high-contrastdrawing. For a really powerful, strong, and dynamic portrait. The drawing resemble Margaery Tyrell played by actress Natalie Dormer in the illustration style. You will learn to draw facial structure or portrait from a rough sketch to finished black and white drawing of Margaery Tyrell from a HBO series Game of Thrones.
Advantage of using high contrast in drawing is that the extreme values can be used to make your drawings more three-dimensional by accentuating the light and shadows. By using extremes in values (more light and dark values than middle values) you create a high-contrastdrawing. For a really powerful, strong, and dynamic drawing, you can draw very dark shading right next to the light areas.
Margaery Tyrell is from Highgarden, daughter of Mace Tyrell and sister to Loras Tyrell of the Kingsguard. She married Renly Baratheon at the start of the War of the Five Kings, but after he died, she and her family joined forces with the Lannisters and the Iron Throne. In A Storm of Swords, she married Joffrey Baratheon, who died on their wedding night. She then married his younger brother Tommen, who became King of the Iron Throne when Joffrey died.

Below are step by step how to draw Margaery Tyrell. Step one, I start with an egg shape drawing, this portrait will be in three quarter view of a face. Do not draw just the head alone. Step two, imagine a flat plane on front surface of an short egg shape, then draw two parallel horizontal lines across the imaginary plane. After that, draw a vertical line to divide the flat plane in half from top to bottom. The space in between the horizontal lines is where eyes will be located at, they are usually right in the middle of the facial height. Step two, I drew her eyes on the level of horizontal lines, nose half way from eyes level to the bottom of her chin, lips half way from the tip of her nose to her chin. Then I added some hair and assign value to the drawing from step four to six.

    Mrs. Brown: Making a portrait look like the actual person is the hardest part. I don’t think Xia pays enough homage to it. This may help: instead of using bisecting lines and a single line that traverses your egg shape. Try turning the traversing lines into a mesh. Copy the egg mesh and apply it to the actual image to see where the features fall on the grid. That’s an easy reference that anybody can do, without ever tracing or copying an image outright.
    But the absolute best advice I can give anybody wanting to draw the human form is to buy the book, Dynamic Figure Drawing by Burne Hogarth. Also Drawing the Human Head same author. He has a whole series.
    Burne Hogarth teaches figure drawing at the Art Center in Pasadena. Before that he drew the Tarzan comic strip for years. These books will help ANYONE. Even Xia himself. I threw away every figure drawing I had done prior to reading these books. I couldn’t stand to look at them. You will have an art epiphany.
    But Xia still rocks! I love what he has done here.

    Wonderful, but tell me. When sketching your figure, you say to ensure that the drawing is correct i.e. make sure the features are in the correct places. But how can you tell until you start to add shading? I keep drawing, and at first everything seems to be going ok and then i realise too late that either the nose is too small or one eye bigger than the other or that the chin is too short…. by this time i’ve shaded and in the end my painting seems to get further and further away from the person i am painting, with each change i make to correct the painting.
