"Come as You Are", but bring a pencil… because you're going to learn how to draw Kurt Cobain, step by step, "On a Plain" piece of paper. "All Apologies" if this intro gives you an "Aneurysm". I just want to state that if you think that your drawing skills have "Plateaued" you should try my step-by-step videos to get them "In Bloom". My videos wont "Drain you" and you wont think they're "Dumb"… unless you're a "Negative Creep"… and I have over 100 on my channel so be sure to "Milk It".

So, unless if you have "Something in the Way", please commit a "Sliver" of time to learning how to draw Kurt Cobain. Please don't forget to Subscribe. Just click on my "Scentless Apprentice" who "Smells Like Teen Spirit"… SUBSCRIBE… Sorry, I have "Tourettes"… Err "Nevermind".

Step 1: Draw the arch and the two shapes. Notice that the shape on the left is egg-shaped and the shape on the right is shaped like homeplate in the game of baseball.
Step 2: Add the hair shape on the left side of the page. Don't stress, this shape doesn't have to be perfect, but it should be proportionately larger than the shape from Step 1.
Step 3: Add the hair shape on the right side. Don't stress out on the hair shape, but take extra time on the shape of the face.
Step 4: Add the nose shape. Draw what you see rather than what you know. The nose looks like this because of a strong shadow shape. Just trust me and draw it.
Step 5: Add the mouth shape… click for more info.
