Step 16: Now draw Riley Freeman's individual cornrows above the head by using the main circle as a guide for the curvature of the braided hair. The line for each cornrow should should extend toward the spikes created in the previous step. The cornrows are basically made up of curved lines over each other.
Step 17: Finish Riley Freeman's hair by drawing the ends of the braided cornrows behind the head. Draw the braids as thick, wavy shapes that end in a curved tip. Make them as long as the neck.
Step 18: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Riley Freeman from The Boondocks. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 19: For a more finished, inked look, carefully draw over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of Riley Freeman! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Riley drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Riley drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color his skin light brown. His hair and eyes are brown. You can add a bit of black to the sides of the cornrows and top of the eyes for extra detail. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Riley Freeman from The Boondocks.
