In this drawing tutorial the team of Drawingforall.net will show you how to draw a girl. This guide is very important, because here we will show the basics of drawing a female body. With the help of nine simple steps we will try to show you how to create a realistic girl drawing.
In order to draw a girl correctly, we first need to outline her skeleton on which the whole drawing will be built. First, we sketch the head of the girl in the form of an oval tapering downwards. Next we depict the spine on which the chest and pelvis are located. For a figure to be feminine, the shoulders should be visually narrower than the pelvis. Using simple lines, draw arms and legs of the girl, outlining the location of all joints in the form of small circles.
In order to correctly draw the details of the girl’s face, we must first mark the lines of symmetry of the face. These two lines should intersect exactly in the center of the face, in the area of nose bridge. Next, we sketch out the neck in the form of a cylinder. Using very smooth lines, draw the girl’s torso, which should taper at the waist and expand at the hips.
In the third step, we will finish adding volume to the drawing of a girl. Sketch the girl’s arms in the form of narrow cylinders, and the joints in the form of ordinary circles. Using rough lines, sketch out the hands. Next, sketch the legs with slightly modified cylinders. Please note that the legs should expand in the hips and taper in the knees.
Now we need to draw the most basic details using fairly rough lines. Let’s start with the head of the girl, drawing the eyes and brows. Then sketch the neat nose and plump lips using the intersecting lines from step number two. Next we add the eyebrows and hair, the shape of which can be changed if you want. Using very smooth lines, sketch the clothes and draw the fingers.
The basis of the girl drawing ready, and now we will carefully draw out the details gradually removing unnecessary guidelines. We start with the head and draw out the facial features. Circle the eyes, draw the dark eyelashes and pupils. Then draw out the nose and plump lips. Next, using long lines, draw the texture of the hair on the head.
Using very smooth lines gently circle the torso lines. We drew the girl in a free topic, but you can draw any other type of clothing. Draw folds in the area of compression and stretching of the fabric and remove all unnecessary guidelines from the torso.
Use flowing lines to circle the arms. Keep in mind that they should taper slightly at the elbows and wrists. Next, draw out the hands, carefully drawing the fingers and marking the nails and knuckles. By the way, to learn more about this process, visit our instruction about how to draw hands.
Now it’s time to draw the girl’s legs. Using very smooth and lines draw out the legs, taking into account all the curves we talked about above. Next, draw the feet and toes, if you draw a girl in an open shoe. Draw out the details of the pants, such as pockets, zip and button. Do not forget to add some folds like in our drawing below.
In order for your girl drawing to look natural and complete, we must draw the shadows. First, with very light lines, we outline the location of the shadows, and then with the help of dense and uniform shading, we shade the outlined areas. To make individual areas even darker, just add another layer of hatching.
