STEP ONE

Drawing lightly with a pencil, create a simple framework. Begin with an oval for her head and a curved "apple core" body shape. You can also add small circles on each side.

STEP TWO

Draw a large oval around her head as well as a diamond/arrow shape for her headdress. Start filling in the basic shapes of her costume, such as the oval globes near the bottom of her dress, her big sleeves, and the wide "V" shapes in front.

STEP THREE

Continue adding shapes, such as the sleeves and the lower ridge of the dress.

STEP FOUR

Add in those final costume lines, including the last details of her headdress.

STEP FIVE

Draw her face, along with the dots on her cheeks, and give her fingers some more detail. Keep in mind that part of her hands are covered by the sleeves.

STEP SIX

At this point, you should have a fairly detailed pencil drawing. Once you're happy with how your masterpiece looks, you can go over your lines with pen or marker, or heavier pencil lines.

STEP SEVEN

You can color your drawing, too, if you want. It's completely up to you!
