How to Draw Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart

Step 1.

Draw the circle and "V"-like shape lightly with a No.2 or HB pencil. Make sure you draw it as seen in the picture.

Step 2.

Now draw in the bisecting line that extends from the back of her neckline to her chest.

Step 3.

Sketch lightly the crescent red line for head mass.

Step 4.

You can draw in the lines a. for eyes, b. for chest armor, and c. for shoulder armor placements.

Step 5.

Now draw Kristen's eyes, eyebrows, and highlighted cheek lines.

Step 6.

Examine the guidelines and notice how her nose, mouth, face and hair appear in the guidelines. Now draw them in. Don't forget the shadow lines on her profile and her ear.

Step 7.

When you sketch her hair, add those straight lines, curves, and braids. In the shading information steps, I'll have some tips for shading braids. Try staying close to the lines that represent the direction of her hair. This will help as you shade it in.

Step 8.

You can draw the front of her armor using lines and dots.

Step 9.

Now draw in her shoulder armor and the top edge of her shield. Don't forget to use dots and lines. If you haven't already, you can erase your guidelines.

Step 10.

I made this line drawing especially for you if you don't want to do the pencil shading and blending part. Otherwise, let us continue to the pencil drawing part.

Step 11.

Here is the outline done with a 0.7mm mechanical pencil. Look closely and see if your lines look something like this. You can erase if certain areas like the eyes or nose don't line up. Be patient with this, it's not as complicated as you may think. As you do more pictures, this will come easier to you.

Step 12.

The picture that goes with this step shows two different ways to hold your pencil to acquire certain effects. OVERHAND: Holding a sharpened pencil in normal writing form with fingers in the middle or near the lead gives you great control and thin/detailed strokes. UNDERHAND: Holding the pencil at a 45 degrees or near level to the table with end of pencil under your palm with pencil on the flat side, gives you large shading coverage. With the No.2 pencil, you have the exposed lead side to shade with. But for a wider swath, use that Cretacolor Monolith graphite pencil with no wood casing. The whole sharpened portion is all lead, like in the step's picture. Practice the toning values to help you with control.

Step 13.

PENCIL STROKES & TONE, SHADING, TEXTURE -- For your convenience, I have inserted this step with different pencils, strokes to use. And you can study the shapes that make up this drawing universe, along with tone, shading, and texture.

Step 14.

The picture here is a great exercise for value shading. I've got a little secret tip for you to make things easier. You can download this to your desktop. First click on the picture to have access to full size. By right clicking on your mouse, you can select "Save Image As." It should save to your desktop.

Step 15.

After printing out a number of the above template, practice shading in the values like this picture. You become familiar with this shading technique that gives you more control and confidence.

Step 16.

Here is a quick tip on different types of hair. In the picture follow the arrows. They represent the direction of the strokes. You can practice this now or later. Straight, a curl, cornrows, or a single braid is just a few ways of styling hair.

Step 17.

This is the first start with the pastel application. If you do the whole picture in a pencil sketch, this is where you would sketch in small circles or lines to shade the areas. It would take hours upon hours to cover all that area with a pencil. I chose to shade with pastels. In a few strokes I've got area coverage. Applied medium & dark gray to her face, hair, and costume. Also I added black to her hair. Looks like a mess, but that's how a some beginning projects will appear. Keep patience with you and keep applying those layers of whites, grays & blacks. You'll have a great outcome.

Step 18.

Here I used my blending stump to "draw" in more lines, add more shading to her hair, face, neck, arm, and costume. I needed to keep the shine in her armor white, so I left them blank. Also some of her hair shine I left blank. I added more black for depth in her hair and armor. I blended her face with a tissue. I made sure no dark pastel touched the lighter parts of her face. I took the kneaded eraser and lightened areas of her hair strands to appear white.

Step 19.

I first sketched using my 9B pencil. Her eyebrows,eyes, and hair,I added darkening strokes . Then I blended with the stump. I darkened with my charcoal gray pastel her collar and garment beneath the armor. I lightened the shine in her hair and armor with white pastel. After those adjustments, I do normally spray with "Krylon Workable Fixatif" to adhere the pencil & pastel to the paper for a non-smudging and workable surface.

Step 20.

"Faint!" I have finally FINISHED!!! Basically, I added more highlights with Opaque Watercolor to the catch lights in her eyes, added more light stray hairs and shine. TIP: This is the final color picture turned black a white. It shows how you can compare the gray pastels and pencils in the previous picture. They give beautiful depth the same way a color does turned to black and white. I will give information on how the color was applied. TIP OVER. Now Kristen pops out! To help out with specific areas of highlights, tone, texture, etc., the next two following steps will show you.

Step 21.

Without highlights, your picture would have a flat appearance. Click on this picture to learn how to make your own picture POP out!

Step 23.

I want to say this. My color pastels are applied about the same way as the gray pastels and pencils. I'll give you little peak on how I accomplish that. First, I choose the right paper color from my Strathmore Charcoal Assorted Tints paper (not too light for the paper color to show through & not too dark to work in continuous layers in the same spot for color). I choose a mid-tone from the reference picture. After sketching the outline, I apply the coloring in this fashion. 1. White Opaque watercolor (gouche) is my lifesaver. If I accidentally get pastel on it, it still shows through. Primsmacolor color pencils can do the same thing because it is waxy (used Expresso or Dark Brown for her outlined hair). I painted white in her hair and on her armor. 2. Applied light pink and dark gray to her face. Used dark brown and ochre pastels and color pencils in her hair. Medium to dark gray was used on her armor. 3. For the swirls in the shield's border and the outline of the tree, I used ink. I get more details with ink and if it is gone over in pastels or color pencils, it will blend in to look more realistic. It blends with a lighter tone, not leaving its original dark appearance.

Step 24.

I am in love with Rembrandt Soft Pastels. They apply so smoothly and brilliantly. I already had my set of gray pastels to do her armor, shield, and background. Though I applied lots of layers, rubbed, shaded, blended and sometimes threw my color pencils across the room because the lead broke. But I kept with it. The shield's antique dirty look comes from white to dark gray pastels and white opaque paint for light spots and the tree. Oh, ochra and sienne brown are great to dab on the tree trunk & roots. What do you think? I am closing out now. But you all have been wonderful and it has been a great pleasure to do this tutorial with you. Please fav, comment, and show your love here. And I will definitely reply back soon or eventually. Love, peace, happiness, success, and more beautiful days to ya! *hug* *blowkiss*
