How to Draw A Cartoon Girl – Let’s get Started!
We will be kicking off this guide on how to draw a cartoon girl by starting with the hair.
As you can see in our reference image, on top of the hairstyle there will be two curved lines that have a small gap between them.
Then, below those lines there will be two more lines that curve upwards to the center.
We will be adding more to finish off this hairstyle in the next few steps, so once you have it looking like our reference image then we are ready to proceed!
Step 2 – Next, finish off the head
For this part of your cartoon girl drawing, we will finish off the head outline. First, draw the ears into the tiny gaps left between the lines on top and on the bottom.
Then, use a curved line to connect into a rounded chin beneath them. Finally, draw a small flower shape into the gap that you left in the two lines at the top.
Step 3 – Now, draw a dress for your cartoon girl drawing
We will be leaving the head for now as we draw a dress in this step of our guide on how to draw a cartoon girl.
First, draw a small, squat neck between the head as you can see in our reference picture.
Then, extend the shoulders of the dress down from the bottom of the head, and then use two straight lines coming down from that. Finally, join them with a slightly curved line at the bottom to finish off this step.
Step 4 – Draw some more details for the dress
This step of your cartoon girl drawing will be quite a simple one! We will be drawing some line details onto the dress that she’s wearing for this step.
First, you can draw a thick collar under her neck, and then finish off with two thin lines near each other across the midsection of her dress.
Step 5 – Draw some arms for your cartoon girl
We will be drawing some arms in this step of our guide on how to draw a cartoon girl.
These will start at the corner of the shoulder of the dress and then extend down to be level with the bottom of the dress.
As you can see in the reference image, we used a nice, simple design for the arms that is quite effective!
Step 6 – Next, draw some legs
Drawing arms is one thing, but your cartoon girl drawing also needs some legs! Luckily, these will also be quite simple to draw.
They will be quite close to each other coming out from the bottom of the dress and end in some small shoes.
Step 7 – Draw the ponytails for your cartoon girl
Step 7 of this guide on how to draw a cartoon girl will be another simple one! For this step, we will be drawing some ponytails for your cartoon girl.
These will have small circles at the base of the ponytails connecting to the face right under her ears. It’s easy as that, and now we’re ready to move on!
Step 8 – Finish off the facial details
Your cartoon girl drawing needs a face before e move on to the final step, so let’s take care of that now!
Her eyes will have a big, circular iris with some curved lines around them to give them more expression. Then, her nose and smiling mouth can be drawn with some simple, small, curved lines.
Finally, once you’re happy with how the face looks, you can add some line details to her hair and ponytails to finish it off. Before you move on, maybe you could draw a nice background or some accessories for her!
