How to Draw a Huldra

Artist: Dawn / May 29, 2016

Step 1.

Let us make the guides for this creature which are the head, torso and limb guides.

Step 2.

In this step, you will draw in the profile of the Huldra's face. Next, draw in her eyebrow, eye and lips.

Step 3.

Finish off the head by drawing the hairstyle. It is long and straight and there are chunks that clip in the back of her head in a natural way.

Step 4.

We will now draw in some of the body starting with the neck, shoulder, and arm. When the arm is drawn in add the hand which is in a fist like pose because she is crouched down on her hands. Add more hair and proceed to step five.

Step 5.

We are almost done folks. All you need to do here is draw in the rest of her body minus the tail. Start with the back, then draw in her legs and feet. As I said, she is bending down like a forest animal or creature. Add definition to the body as well   

Step 6.

For the last drawing step you will draw in her tail. It should be long, curled up and have a puffy tip. Erase the guides along with the mistakes.

Step 7.

The line art comes out looking like the one you see here or close to it. Just add some color and a scenery or background.

Description: There are many creatures from lore, but to sit and say that I have drawn or made lessons on a majority of these creatures is an understatement. Today I will be introducing you folks to a lesson on a creature from Norwegian or Scandinavian lore. Here is how to draw a Huldra, step by step. For those of you that don't know, Huldra's are found in the Scandinavian forests. They are said to be beautiful, patient, but very vicious. These creatures look like woman, but they have long tails with tufts of hair at the ends. They wait in the forests for men and they lure them in to steal their souls. I love the way this Huldra came out, it's the first drawing of a Huldra that I have ever done so I do hope that you enjoy my creation. If you know of this folklore creature, please let me know what you think about the creation. Adios and have fun.
