Nose, Mouth, Right Eye

From the bottom of the right eye draw a backward S-shape and at the end create Bootleg Homer's lip by drawing a little curve. From the tip of the nose start the front of the mouth and upper lip curved similar to the lower lip. Create mouth and add the cheek indentation. Above where you started your line work for the front of the face you start to draw the right eye. Draw semi-circle connected to the left eye.

Its' Neckin' Good.

Ear, Neck

From the front of the mouth repeat the same down line; but, only half of the size. Proceed to connect the bottom of the neck. Your Bootleg Homer Simpson should be coming to life right about now.

Ink Your Masterpiece

Take your micron pen and draw over your linework adding or changing things; because, this is about making a Bootleg Homer Simpson that is unique and one of a kind. After inking, use your eraser to get rid of any pencil marks. Rub your eraser softly to not damage the ink. This will not smear the ink if it has not yet dried. Ink drawn on any sort of computer paper will bleed. Use a thicker paper used for archival ink.
