Pencil Portrait Drawings
by Stacey


Welcome to Stacey’s pencil drawings of famous people from film and music. This small gallery contains names that you most likely have heard about.

Her drawing technique may look a little “misty” to some extent, but she captured the portraits very well and very accurately.

If you don’t know some of these famous people, you can google their names and compare the real photos with these drawings.



My favorite is the late Freddie Mercury from Queen, fortunately only this small image is available now. His incomparably awesome powerful voice and personality still shines on the rock music skies even though he passed away in 1991…

I hope you can find your favorite artist among these. I would also like you to encourage and invite to submit your own portrait drawings or any other drawings if you have. If not yet, then please grab a pencil and paper and start drawing. If Stacey can do it, you can do it too :)

This is my pencil drawing of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in the film Pirates of the Caribbean. John Depp is my favourite actor however I think in all the films I've seen him in he plays this particular character the best!

Cyndi Lauper

A pencil drawing of an 80s singer. I chose to draw her because of her unique style and not being afraid to show it.

My portrait drawing of Adam Ant

This is a pencil drawing I did of the 80s singer Adam Ant, who is still on the go now! I was inspired to draw him as even though I'm only 16, I'm a HUGE fan of Adam Ant (Stuart Leslie Goddard). He is truly one unique singer...

My portrait drawing of Paul King

I love the singer Paul King, even though the band King didn't stay together for a long time, they sung great songs like "Love and Pride" which people like me fell in love with. Paul King is best renowned for his cockatoo haircut and his spray painted doc martens. I chose to draw him as he is unique.

A drawing inspired by a song

This is a drawing I did in pencil. It is inspired by the song 'You took the words right out of my mouth' by Meatloaf.The introduction of the song is a man and a woman having a conversation and the very first thing the man says is 'On a hot summer night would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses' and this is the line that inspired me to draw this picture.

My portrait drawing of Freddie Mercury

This is a portrait drawing I have of the rock legend Freddie Mercury who was the lead singer of the 80's rock band Queen. I chose to do it in pencil as I am most confident in that particular media. I wish I was around during the time of him being alive as they would have a been an amazing band to see. In a way this a way of commemorating his contribution to music!!
