Welcome to the tutorial to draw your own princess. This lesson has lots of tips to aid you on the various processes of drawing diverse types of princesses. I had fun creating this lesson and be sure to show me how you did!
Firstly, princesses don't have same personality. If you look a face, you have the first impression about the character. So, here some face-type, that you can draw your princess's personality. The 1. face is the good princess. She is simple, and natural beauty. Her eyes is big, and rotund, and the eyebrows are arched. If you look her face, you know, she is kind, blameless person. But the 2. face not same! Her faces lengthy, the nose is snub, the eyes big, but half-opened. This princess is a really snob, arrogant person. Beautiful too, but not natural, and not good person. 3. face is not a beauty, and she use too much make-up. Her eyes are thin, you shouldn't trust her. Maybe she has a good personality, maybe no.
Princesses always have beautiful hairstyle. So, here is the examples: 1; natural beauty, and her hairstlye simple, natural 2; Short, curly hair, generally blonde. 3; Most of princesses have a bun, it's could be simple, and complex too. She wear the diadem in front of the bun. 4; Complex, big hair, but it's not naturally, it's a wig. In the middle age, the princesses always wear like this. 5; Princesses generally don't have short hair, but if yes, it's a good-type: simple, and elegant 6; Long, curly hair, with a ponytale, it's simple too, but beautiful.
Diadems have a lot of type. You see in the above picture, how you can draw a simple diadem with circles.
And under these, you see the diadem-types. The 1; diadem has a circle base, the 2; simple, but beautiful too. Generally the hair hold it (like the bun) 3; more difficult, than the other two, the base is a circle too.
Are you wondering always how can be the princesses's skirt so big? The secret's key is the crinoline. This is a steel-base for the skirt in 17. century, but women wear like this (but a modern variation) now too in wedding, or for the dance, etc. You see in the pictures, how wear a princess the skirt. Firstly the crinoline (she already wear underclothes, not naked) this is the base and give the form for the skirt. Secondly the underskirts, these layers could be more than one. Thirdly and finally the skirt! (plus information: This procedure always need some helper).
The princess costume have a lot of type too. But you need know, a princess always elegant. In the pictures, you can see some examples for the costume-variations in side view and front view too. I draw some type of corset too, because they give other and other form for the figure's body depend on the type (in front view and side view too). The 1; costume type is simple, but elegant and doesn't has crinoline. Generally perfect, if you want to draw a modern princess. 2; has crinoline and shoulder pad (or puffy sleeves) too, but with a simple design and doesn't has details. 3; more difficult, because the skirt bigger and have more layer with more details and lace. 4; like a baroque-costume with the bigger and more extreme shoulder pad. The costume have more details with a lot of flower and other motive. And if you draw more frizzer more better! Do you think the 5; costume type is easyer? Yes, doesn't have crinoline and shoulder pad too, and looks like a modern clothes, but has an extrem part: the back side. This part of the costume are very long, so the princess can't wear this in a lot of place.
You know the clothes, diadems, hairstyle and the faces too. What's missing? A princess always elegant, and she always do what the etiquette allow.
So here, the poses.
In the first picture the character do a curtsey, it's a greeting form in the royal families. The figure needs cross her legs, fall a little, and hold the skirt's one or two side. A princess always looks like a flower. Their motion are always flexible, airy and ladylike.
When you start to draw your princess, the first step always the human anatomy's base. You need to sign the main points, that you can draw the body.
After these steps, you can draw the shape of her face and starting the front hair line too.
You can start to drawing the top eyelids, her nose and mouth and the eyebrow lines too, like you see here.
Finish the eyes, and draw the eyeballs, and you can draw the ears too, but my princess hair hide the ears. :)
After this, you can draw the full hairstyle with the base of the diadem and the bow.
Draw the details of diadem, hair, and the bow.
The next step is the top of her body and the base of the coat. Draw the base of arms, without the details.
And now, draw the coat's complete furry part, the necklace and the dress's plaits too.
Draw more details, the bows of the dress, the furry's marking. And finally you draw the lace part of sleeves, and the fingers, glove too.
The last part is the skirt. Draw the skirt's base form.
Draw three wavy layers of the skirt, these will be the skirt's gala-layer.
And finally, draw plaits for the wavy skirt-layers, and her skirt will be a real princess skirt.
And now, color her as you want with shades. I colored with pink, because this is a girly, typical princess color, but you can choose anything from the color palette.
Great work guys!
