Step 1.

Start off by drawing the head shape, then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

You will now begin sketching out the actual structure of Piper's face. In this lesson she has lots of angles. Add the hair line a well which hangs straight down her face.

Step 3.

Using the facial guidelines draw the thick eyebrows, then sketch in the shapes of her nose. Add the roots to the front part of her hair.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw the big eyes. You will need to add some lashes, as well as lid creases.

Step 5.

Draw the nose, then sketch in her lips or mouth. As you can see Piper's mouth is very prominent.

Step 6.

Then, sketch her neck in, adding a few dashes of definition to shape up her slender neck.

Step 7.

In this next step you will need to sketch out her head shape which is also her hairstyle. The long straight hair curls at the ends and has some strand detailing.

Step 8.

For the last step you will draw the collar of her shirt followed by the jail suit. Erase your mistakes and that will be it.

Step 9.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can color her in and don't forget the orange color.
