How to Draw a Ginger

Step 1.

Let's start off by drawing the basic guidelines and shapes to create the head, neck and shoulder guides. When that is done sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Up next, begin drawing the actual shape or structure for the Ginger's face like so, then add a neck line.

Step 3.

Start drawing the shape and style of the Ginger's hair. Like a lot of Gingers, this style is long and curly with layers.

Step 4.

We will continue at the base of the neck and draw the shoulders, torso and arm. When that is done add a halter line which separates the skin from the clothing.

Step 5.

We will almost finish drawing the rest of her hair. This will also form the shape of the back of her head. Add layers of curls and also add some strand lines.

Step 6.

For this last drawing step all you have to do is draw in the face starting with the eyebrows, shapes of her eyes, the thick lashes, and then sketch in her nose and mouth. Add a freckle on her chin and then add detailing to the neck and clothing. Erase your mistakes and guides then you are done.

Step 7.

Here is the line art for this lesson. Now that you are finished you can add the freckles and color in your girl to look like a Ginger or whatever you like.

I hope everyone had an awesome Fourth of July. As for me, I just spent two days with family and friends as well hung out in the yard, had some food and talked a lot. We then lite off some pretty sweet fireworks and afterwards went to bed. But before all that took place, I traveled about two hundred miles away from home to do some holiday shopping and when I was in the car, I was surprised to hear that there is now a Ginger association. Now for those of you who don't know what Gingers are, let me tell you. The word 'Ginger' is used to referr to folks who have red hair and freckles. This could be men, women and children. I guess the whole Ginger concept became popular from South Park and it figures that such a series made a one word phrase explode. This lesson is going to show you how to draw a Ginger, step by step. As you can see the female in the lesson is very pretty. She has orange/reddish colored hair, blue/grey eyes and lots and lots of freckles. I think she came out awesome. I had a lot of fun making this drawing and I hope all of you do too. I'm basically showing the love for all Gingers out there and if you happen to be one, shout it out and let people know you are proud to be a Ginger.
