How to Draw Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart

Artist: catlucker / April 20, 2012

Step 1.

Draw the circle and "V"-like shape lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.

Now draw in the bisecting line that extends from the back of her neckline to her chest.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red line for head mass.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyes, b. for chest armor, and c. for shoulder armor placements.

Step 5.

Now draw Kristen's eyes, eyebrows, and highlighted cheek lines.

Step 6.

Examine the guidelines and notice how her nose, mouth, face and hair appear in the guidelines. Now draw them in. Don't forget the shadow lines on her profile and her ear.

Step 7.

When you sketch her hair, add those straight lines, curves, and braids. In the shading information steps, I'll have some tips for shading braids. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of her hair. This will help as you shade it    

Step 8.

You can draw the front of her armor using lines and dots.

Step 9.

Now draw in her shoulder armor and the top edge of her shield. Don't forget to use dots and lines. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 11.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think.    

Step 12.

The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/det   

Step 13.

PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.

Step 14.

The picture here is a great exercise for value shading. I've got a little secret tip for you to make things easier. You can download this to your desktop. First click on the picture to have access to full size. By right clicking on your mouse, you ca   

Step 15.

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.

Step 16.

Here is a quick tip on different types of hair. In the picture follow the arrows. They represent the direction of the strokes. You can practice this now or later. Straight, a curl, cornrows, or a single braid is just a few ways of styling hair.

Step 17.

This is the first start with the pastel application. If you do the whole picture in a pencil sketch, this is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I c   

Step 18.

Here I used my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more shading to her hair, face, neck, arm, and costume. I needed to keep the shine in her armor white, so I left them blank. Also some of her hair shine I left blank. I added more black for d   

Step 19.

I first sketched using my 9B pencil. Her eyebrows,eyes, and hair,I added darkening strokes . Then I blended with the stump. I darkened with my charcoal gray pastel her collar and garment beneath the armor. I lightened the shine in her hair and armor    

Step 20.

"Faint!" I have finally FINISHED!!! Basically, I added more highlights with Opaque Watercolor to the catch lights in her eyes, added more light stray hairs and shine. TIP: This is the final color picture turned black a white. It shows how you can com   

Step 21.

Without highlights, your picture would have a flat appearance. Click on this picture to learn how to make your own picture POP out!

Click on this picture to see how Tone, Shading, Texture, and Reflective Light affects Kristen Stewart, who is an amazing actress and my main Twilight girl! HERE'S A TINY BONUS. The next 2 steps has information on how I colored Kristen of "Snow White    

Step 23.

I want to say this. My color pastels are applied about the same way as the gray pastels and pencils. I'll give you little peak on how I accomplish that. First, I choose the right paper color from my Strathmore Charcoal Assorted Tints paper (not too l   

Step 24.

I am in love with Rembrandt Soft Pastels. They apply so smoothly and brilliantly. I already had my set of gray pastels to do her armor, shield, and background. Though I applied lots of layers, rubbed, shaded, blended and sometimes threw my color penc

Delicious flavors of Chris Hemsworth (Thor) who is the huntsman & Sam Clafin that played a gorgeous man of the cloth in "Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides." This tutorial is dedicated to Dawn. She asked me to do this... soooo she's receiving something special from me. "hint" "hint" Guess what it is!
