Portrait of a girl with a pencil in stages



How to draw a person with a pencil in stages?


Before you begin to draw a portrait of a girl, make a few simple sketches to train your hand. This is necessary so that the hand is accustomed to draw curved lines - it will be easier for you to build a face.





In this lesson we will gradually draw a portrait of a beautiful girl with a pencil. We will learn how to build a face, determine proportions, and of course, to apply chiaroscuro with strokes!


What materials do we need?


  • pencils H and HB
  • -erasero
  • ffice paper sheetc
  • utter or sharpener-
  •  preferably a tablet for drawing (but optional)


You can see the large  at the end of the lesson.

Girl Face With a Pencil : Stage 2


1.Divide the face into 3 equal parts. To do this, draw two horizontal lines - these are the marks of the line of the nose and eyebrows.
2.Be sure to check if the parts of the face are equal. The proportions of the girl's face depend on this.
3.We draw the axis of symmetry - a vertical line (we don’t want the face to be crooked?)

But what about the hairstyle? We draw hair in smooth contours.

Please note that the hair is a little laid on the face.






Girl Face With a Pencil : Stage 4


1.Draw eyebrows above the previously drawn line. Our girl has quite wide eyebrows - right now in fashion
2.Next, you can draw lips. First draw a line to close the lips. Next, outline the upper and lower lip.
3.The upper lip should be slightly smaller than the lower.
And of course, the nose! Mark the wings of the nose and enter the nostrils.

Getting started drawing eyes! We outline a curved line - the axis on which the eyes will be

From the nose we raise the perpendiculars up (marked with a dash-dotted line). Thus we find the inner corners of the eyes.
