Start by drawing Messi's features. Draw a light oval shape for the head. Then, draw two curved lines for the cheeks, and a line for the mouth.
Messi's unique hairstyle is an essential part of his identity. Draw a curved line above the head to represent the hairline. Continue drawing irregular shapes as the hair until you complete the first layer.
Carefully sketch the rest of Messi's body. Start with his neck, add a jersey and his shorts to complete the look. Remember to add details like jerseys' creases and folds to make the artwork more realistic.
It's time to bring this artwork to life by adding colors to your drawing. If possible, use colored pencils. Mimic Messi's light skin and use pale yellow for the jersey, navy blue for the shorts.
