Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below

You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Basic head shape:
Start by lightly sketching the basic shape of the head. These are usually oval or egg shaped. Make sure that the top is proportional to the size of the paper and the rest of the features.

Step 2

Facial care instructions:
Draw a vertical line down the middle of your head to help you align your facial features. Then, draw a horizontal line down the middle to mark eye level.

Step 3

Place your eyes along the horizontal line. Two eyes are usually the same width as one eye. Pay attention to the shape of the eyes and the distance between them.

Step 4

Nose and mouth:
Place the nose below the eyes and the mouth below the nose. Use your reference images to get the correct proportions and shapes of these features.

Step 5

Draw ears on both sides of the head, about halfway between the eyes and the bottom of the nose.

Step 6

Start sketching the girl’s hair. Pay attention to the hairstyle in your reference image. Hair can vary in length, texture, and style, so note these details as accurately as possible.

Step 7

Face details:
Add details to the eyes, such as eyelashes, eyebrows, and irises. Refine the shape of the nose, lips and ears. Make sure to observe the unique characteristics of the girl in your references.

Step 8

Start shading the portrait to add depth and dimension. Use light and shadow to create a three-dimensional illusion. Pay attention to the lighting in your reference image.

Step 9

Skin tone:
When shading the skin, use multiple pencil strokes and different shades of pencil to create realistic skin tones. Avoid using heavy sugars on the skin.

Step 10

Hair details:
Continue adding details to the hair, such as individual strands and highlights. Hair can be a challenge, so take your time.

Step 11

Tweaking and editing:
Continually compare your drawing with reference images and make necessary corrections to improve realism and accuracy.

Step 12

Final steps:
Once you are satisfied with your drawing, erase any unnecessary guides and traces. Add any final details or highlights.
