This tutorial will be perfect for any fans of this wonderful character!
So get ready for some magical drawing fun as we delve into this step-by-step guide on how to draw Hermione Granger in 6 steps!
How to Draw Hermione Granger – Let’s Get Started!
One of the defining visual features of this character would have to be her big, bushy hair. This is what we shall be starting with in this first step of our guide on how to draw Hermione Granger.
First, we will be drawing her fringe over her forehead. This fringe will be drawn using some curved lines that eng in pointy tips.
The top of her head will be drawn with some curved lines connecting to one another, and then we can draw the sides of her hairstyle.
For the sides, we will be using some wavy lines dropping down to end in some pointy tips. This will help to give the hair some more volume and texture.
With the hairstyle drawn, we can continue to step 2!
Step 2 – Now, draw her facial details and her scarf
The style we will be using for this Hermione Granger drawing will be cute and cartoony, as you will see in our examples!
For now, we will be drawing her facial details. First, use some curved lines for her facial outline.
Then, draw some large, rounded shapes for her eyes and then add some pointy lines extending off of them for her eyelashes. Finish off with some circular shapes inside the eye outlines for her pupils.
We will then use some simple lines for her nose, mouth and eyebrows. Finish off by drawing her striped scarf around her neck, and then it’s time for step 3!
Step 3 – Draw the robe that she is wearing
In the Harry Potter series, students of the magical school Hogwarts will wear robes as part of their school uniform.
This is what we shall be drawing in this step of our guide on how to draw Hermione Granger.
Use some curving lines to draw the sleeves of her robe, and these sleeves will be thinner at the base while getting wider towards the ends of the sleeves.
The front of the robe will be connected near the top with some straps, and then it will split and part.
Before you move to step 4, you can also draw her skirt showing behind the split of the robe, and then we can proceed.
Step 4 – Next, draw her broomstick and legs
Broomsticks are a popular accessory in the Harry Potter universe.
Instead of being used for cleaning, they are used to zip around through the air and are even used in the popular game Quidditch.
We will be showing her holding one of these broomsticks in this part of your Hermione Granger drawing.
For now, we will be drawing the long, thin handle of the broomstick being clutched in her hand on the left. We won’t draw the end of the broomstick for now, but we will add that very shortly!
The final thing to add in this step will be her legs. To fit the style we’re going for, these legs will be short and squat with small feet at the end.
Then you will be ready for some final details and elements in the next step of the guide!
Step 5 – Add the final details to your Hermione Granger drawing
This fifth step of our guide on how to draw Hermione Granger will have you adding the bristly end of the broomstick that you began in the previous step.
The outline will be drawn with some slightly curved lines, and then you can add similarly curved lines to the interior.
The more of these that you can add the better, as it will help to create the look of individual bristles.
With the broomstick finished, you can then move on to the finals step! Before you do this, you could also add some extra details of your own!
One idea would be to draw a background, as this would be a great way to show off your favorite Harry Potter scene or moment! How will you finish off this awesome picture?
Step 6 – Finish off your Hermione Granger drawing with color
In our example image for this Hermione Granger drawing, we showed you the colors she is typically associated with in the books and the films.
This means that her hair is a rich darker brown, and then for her scarf we used alternating red and gold colors as they are the colors of her school house.
You could go for similar colors in your own rendition if you would like her to look accurate, but this is your drawing and you could create your own Hermione Granger interpretation by changing up the colors!
Will you go with her typical color scheme or change it up a bit?
