Sad Girl Drawing Tutorial

Artist: Dawn / August 29, 2015

Step 1.

Start off with a guide shape for the head and then draw a neck line guide.

Step 2.

Using the facial guidelines begin drawing out the shape or structure to the girls face. Notice that her face contains a lot of angles. Sketch in her hair line and draw the outline of an ear.

Step 3.

For this face I chose to go with a very dark liner that covers the whole top lid and a lot of the bottom lid. It's a dark smokey eye. Sketch in the long lashes and then draw in the eye lids.

Step 4.

We will now sketch in the eyebrows. Make sure they are expressive and colored in. Once that is done draw in her actual eyes, then add the nose and beauty mark under the corner of her right or left eye.

Step 5.

We will add detailing inside her ear and then draw an earring. Once that is done draw the mouth and plump lips. Again, the mouth should be drawn in the manner you see it here because it adds to the expression on her face.

Step 6.

Next, sketch out the long line for her neck, and then her long, straight flowing hair. Her hair is one of the prettiest parts to this drawing so be sure to take your time with it.

Step 7.

Lastly, draw the necklace she is wearing. Hey, it looks a lot like mine. Erase your mistakes and guides.

Step 8.

This is your line art. Now you can color in your sad girl any way you want. You can make her resemble you, or someone you know, or just as a concept character.

Description: This next lesson came right from the ole noggin. It'a a drawing based on a sad girl who is in love but doesn't know how to tell who she loves how she feels. I spent three hours on this art concept and I am very proud of the outcome. The quality, coloring and overall concept is so awesome, that I was really considering getting this drawing made into a poster image. Anyways, this concept says a lot of things so I guess it can be interpreted the way you want. If you like this lesson please let me know because I really did put a lot of work into it.
