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: Draw the football player's helmet by first drawing a short, sloping line. On the left side, continue to draw the line up and curve it to the right. This top part of the helmet should be similar to a half-circle. Continue to draw the line downward past the front of the helmet. At the bottom, add a curved line for the part of the helmet that protects the football player's ear and close the shape.
Step 2: Below the helmet, draw the bottom part of the head using a series of angled lines. Make the side of the football player's face dip inward to create the cheekbone. Make the chin blocky at the bottom.
Step 3: Starting at the ear section of the helmet, draw a line across the face for the face mask. Add another thick line at the bottom over the chin for the lower part of the face mask. Draw two short, thick lines that connect the longer lines to complete the football player's face mask.
Step 4: Inside the face, at the top, draw two small triangles for the eyes. Don't give the eyes pupils for a tougher look. Below the eyes, draw a short, angled line for the football player's nose. It's okay to overlap the face mask. Below the nose, draw two short lines for the mouth.
Step 5: To the right of the football player's head, draw a big curved line for the first shoulder pad. The shape should be similar to a half-circle. Sketch lightly at first and darken the line only after you get the shape right. Under the head, draw a small, V- shaped line for the jersey's collar.
