Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Raven from DC Comics' Teen Titans. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle near the top of the page. This will be the basic shape for the top of Raven's head. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: On the bottom of the circle, draw a line as a guide for Raven's chin and jaw. The line should be pointy at the bottom and similar to a letter V with long ends that stretch toward the sides of the circle. The combined shapes form the guide for Raven's whole head.
Step 3: Under Raven's head, draw two curved lines for the neck. The lines should bend outward a bit to form the top part of the shoulders.
Step 4: Draw two long intersecting lines inside the head shape, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape of the head. These are construction lines that will help you place Raven's facial features later on.
Step 5: Draw two small shapes similar half circles as guides for Raven's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line.
