To draw Elsa step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to go at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below. The new lines in each step are shown in red, and each step is explained in the text below the photo, so you'll know exactly what to draw in each step. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods! Take your time and draw at your own pace.
The written step-by-step video tutorial:
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: Draw a small circle at the top of the page as a guide for Elsa's head. First draw some marks for the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. Don't worry if the circle isn't perfect. It's just a guide. If you would still like a perfect circle, you can just trace the edge of a coin or anything circular.
Step 2: Draw a small arc under the head as a guide for the jaw and chin. Don't draw the arc too low, or Elsa will end up with a big chin.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head, one horizontal and one vertical. Curve the lines to contour to the head. These construction lines will help you place Elsa's facial features later. Add two short lines under the head for the neck.
Step 4: Draw a big triangle under the head as a guide for the top part of Elsa's torso. The top part of the triangle will be the guide for the shoulders, so don't draw this part too wide. The length of this triangle should be about twice the size of the head.
Step 5: Draw a set of lines under the triangle as a guide for the bottom of Elsa's torso. This shape is made up of two vertical lines on the sides, with another sloping line at the bottom.
