Sketch out the guide for her face, then sketch in the facial guidelines as well as the shoulder line.

Using the facial guidelines draw in the eyebrows and color them in as well. When you draw in her eyes make sure that the top lid is dark, thick and bold. Sketch in the lashes, then draw the eyeballs. Also add the creases on each eyelid.

Step 4.

Now we can sketch out her nose, then draw in her closed mouth in the form of a full set of lips.

Step 5.

Sketch in the long wavy parted hairstyle. Draw in the veil that she is wearing, then add detailing to her hair as well.

Step 6.

Finish sketching out the veil which should be larger then her head. The headdress is like a big hood over her head. Add the detailing to the cloth, then move to step seven.
