Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Barbie. A new 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. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top part Barbie's head.
Step 2: Draw a line similar to the letter U under the circle as a guide for Barbie's jaw and chin. These two combined shapes make the guide for Barbie's whole head.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head, one vertical and one horizontal. The horizontal line should be close to the bottom edge of the first circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Barbie's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two small shapes that kind of look like little footballs as guides for Barbie's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line.
Step 5: Right under the main circle and within the shape of the chin and jaw, draw a small shape as a guide for Barbie's mouth. The shape should be similar to the letter D on its side.
