I know there are still millions of fans who love Skrillex. I wanted to make tutorials on two musical artists from todays times and Goyte was one of them. I had in mind to draw one of two female faces, and out of the two I chose to go with the girl who has a hit single as well as is the girlfriend of Skrillex. Today I will be showing you "how to draw Ellie Goulding", step by step. If you're not sure who she is, just know she is the voice you hear on the radio singing 'Lights'. Of course she has other songs, but Lights is the one that stands out the most, or at least to me anyway. She is from England, and she was born on December 30, 1986. This means that Ellie is going to be twenty six this year. When she was fifteen years old Ellie started playing the clarinet, as well as learning guitar. He sound developed when she was introduced to electronic music like techno and stuff like that. It was because of that exposure that she made her way into music. She had help developing her sound from Starsmith and Frankmusik, but it is Starsmith that became her collaborator as well as producer for her song Lights. Even though I'm familiar with her song 'Lights', I'm not as familiar with the rest of her music but I'm sure I probably already heard it on the radio at some point but didn't know it was Ellie Goulding. You can also visit the official Ellie Goulding website if you like to look up tour dates as well as bio, information and even new music that is coming out. Anyways, I do hope you like this lesson on drawing Ellie Goulding, I think she came out pretty good considering. That's about all I have to say except have fun! I shall return later with more tuts coming your way.

STEP 2.

You will then draw the actual shape and structure of Ellie's face like so, but you will also need to include the outline of her ear. Draw the hairline and when you do this, make sure that there is a nice swoop of bangs crossed over to the left. She sometimes wears her hair tucked behind her ears. Add the lining of her hair on the right side too.
