To draw Emma Watson, we should first sketch out some basic construction lines. Use a 2H or harder pencil and sketch very lightly so that the lines are easy to erase later on after we ink. Sketch the basic shape of the head and neck. The head should be tilted slightly, and looking back over the shoulder. Be sure to draw crisscross construction lines for the center of the face, the eyes, nose, and mouth.
We should draw her eyes first. Make sure that they rest evenly on the horizontal construction line. They should be large almonds shaped. Make sure that the iris and pupils are looking in the exact same direction as one another. Draw thick eyelashes near the outer corners of the eyes. Also draw thin creases above and below each eye for the eyelids.
Her eyebrows are thin and well-groomed. Her right eyebrow can have a slight arch to it, but the left should be fairly straight. The left eyebrow will appear longer because of our perspective.
Her nose is petite and points upwards at the tip. We should be able to see the holes of her nostrils at this angle. The bridge of the nose is very straight, but we do not need to draw the top of it. By drawing the bottom half of the nose, it creates the illusion that the top half is there. Use your vertical guide line to help place the nose. The bottom should end half way between the eyes and chin.
Her mouth should be half way between the nose and chin. Her upper lip is about the same thickness as the lower lip. There is a distinct V shape in the middle of her upper lip. The lower lip should simply be a smooth, curved line stretching from corner to corner of the mouth.
Now draw the outer contours of her face and jaw. She has a slender jaw, but her chin protrudes slightly.
We can only see her left ear at this angle. Her ears are slightly large. The top of her ear should align with her eyes, the bottom should align with her upper lip. Draw plenty of curved creases inside the ear.
Her hair is straight and ends at her shoulders. Start at the center of her head and draw long strands of hair falling down all sides of her head. A large bunch of hair should almost cover her right eye and wrap around the side of her face. A strand of hair should rest on top of her ear. The ends of her hair should merge together into large points.
Her neck should be slender and have smooth curves to it - not just straight lines. Notice how the right side of her neck has a sharp, diagonal line pointing towards her midsection. This is because her head is turned.
Let's give her a jacket. Draw the thick collar falling down from either side of her neck, as well a few creases in the fabric on her upper shoulders.
We're now done penciling the image and we can move on to inks. Use either Micron markers, or a brush and India ink to do your inking. A brush works great when inking long strands of hair. Carefully go over each line with patience and be sure not to ink any guide lines. When the ink has totally dried, erase your pencil marks with a kneaded eraser.
You can add a greater sense of depth to the image by giving it shadow. Use either a thick felt tip marker, or a brush and ink to do your shading. Establish your light source and black out the opposite side of the figure's features. In this case, the light is coming from the left side of the page. A brush works great for feathering the shadows of the hair.
And you're done! If you need to make any corrections you can use white ink or opaque white paint. You can also use it to insert highlights if needed, such as to the hair or pupil's of the eyes. And that is how you draw Emma Watson! Very good!
