Cowgirl Drawing Tutorial

Step 1.

Let us begin with a head shape or guide like so, then draw the guides for the torso, neck and face.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the profile of the Cowgirl's face starting with the nose, then work your way to drawing the lips, chin and jaw. Define the lips and sketch in the cheek indent as well as some detailing on her neck.

Step 3.

One of my favorite things to draw is hair. So in this step we will be drawing the Cowgirl's long, flowing straight hair. She has bangs so be sure to draw that in as well. Add some strand detailing and then when you are done with the hair you can proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Up next, add some detailing to her hair to finish off the style.

Step 5.

What would a Cowgirl be without a hat? Here you will draw in her Cowgirl hat and when you do this be sure to add the dimple at the top of the hat. I love the way the hat came out, but you can draw any style cowboy/girl hat you like.

Step 6.

For the last drawing all you have to do is draw in the torso and arm. You will also have to sketch out her shirt along with the crinkles in the shirt. Once you are done you can erase the mistakes and all the guides you made.

Step 7.

Here is the finished drawing when complete. Now all you have to do is color her in. I hope you had fun drawing a Cowgirl.

This was one of my favorite lessons that I made the other day and it was heavily inspired by a Neil Young song called 'Cowgirl in the Sand'. I have been listening to a lot of Neil Young lately and when I hear that particular song, the Cowgirl I envision is one that looks like the girl in this drawing. So today I will be showing you all how to draw a Cowgirl, step by step. The imagery that surrounds the Cowgirl is so pretty. The flowers give it that delicate feel and the sandy terrain in the background also signifies the inspiration for this drawing. I know many of you like drawing girls, so why not draw a Cowgirl too. I shall return with more fun lessons so stick around.
