Hello! Today we’ll show you how to draw a girl! This lesson is not first about the girls on our site. Today’s girl will be drawn in comics style.
In our last lesson devoted to how to draw a girl, you can read about all the features of the female body proportions. Now we will draw stickman – man made of sticks and circles. The main purpose of stickman – sketch out the position of the character on a paper, his pose and proportions.
So, about the proportions:
- The height of human is equal the sum of lengths of seven or eight heads;
- Growth of women on average slightly lower than men;
- Also, women’s hips are equal to or wider than the shoulders;
Of the features we note the spine posture, which is bent to one side, the head, which leans in the opposite direction and gently sloped hip line. Draw the head as an oval, and the body as simple lines.
In this step we will add the necessary volume to the stickman, but first we mark up the face, because all the lessons in drawing people on our site are drawn in the direction from the head to the feet, top to bottom.
Mark up the face with the vertical line and four horizontal lines. The longest of horizontal lines is the line of the eyes. Below it located short lines of nose and mouth. And above the line of the eyes located the line of hair.
Proceed to the torso. Torso of girl has an hourglass shape, which expands in the area of breast and hips, and narrows in the middle, in the waist area. The arms should be elegant and thin, the only extension is present at the beginning of the forearm to the elbow, but it is insignificant.
The arms in this step can be divided into three parts – the upper arms, forearms and hands. In general, the main recommendation in this stage – try to make all the curves of the body as much as possible smooth and feminine, there should not be rough shapes or sharp edges.
We continue our drawing lesson on how to draw a girl. At this step we sketch out the hairstyles of the girl. Conditionally we can divide it into two parts – one that is in the face, closer to us, and another one that behind a face, it is located in the nape area.
Notice how these two parts differ in size: the front of the hairstyle bigger than the another part and bigger than the head. Top right outline a couple of small balls-ornaments located on the headband. In this step we also sketch out the clothing of the girl.
Using the markup from the second step, draw the eye, brow and plump lips. Pay particular attention to the shape of the eyebrows, eyes, and their location – just by using these factors we can see the effect of a light tilt forward. In this step, we need to use the most gentle and smooth lines.
Erase from face the guidelines of the previous steps and draw over the eyes, eyebrows, nose and lips. Note the the position of the pupil and eyelashes – all these details form the glance.
Draw part of the bangs hiding the girl eye. Use long and curved lines to draw the hair. so you can draw a small pigtail as in our example. Hair should be drawn in the direction from the roots to the tips.
The rest of the haircut should be drawn according to the same direction – from the hair roots to the tips. Do not forget the slightly twisting the ends of the strands, the rim and the decoration is in the form of three skulls. But of course, you can draw any girl with any hair style – we just give an example.
Circle the chest, neck and right shoulder of girl. Note the lines that represent the collarbone – they are not particularly large and noticeable, but it is necessary to identify them. When drawing the shoulder and chest, use smooth lines – contours of the body should be feminine and smoothly curved.
Erase unnecessary guides from the both arms and torso. Draw over the arms and torso by tight and confident, but very gentle and smooth lines. The folds on the fabric should be much lighter. Again, do not forget that the body must have the graceful feminine curves, there should be no muscle bulk or rough contours.
Circle the legs and lower part of the body. As in the previous steps, the lines should be very smooth and gentle.
