How to Draw a Ballerina
This is a step-by-step tutorial on how to draw a ballerina for kids with some drawing experience. Drawing a human body is difficult, but if you follow the steps with a pencil, you should be able to get it right.
Remember to stay within the initial contours to ensure that the drawing looks accurate.
Draw the lines for her shoulders and waist, as well as the rough shape of her legs; a ballerina’s figure is usually slender and muscular, so try to make it look delicate and refined.
To avoid ruining the image, keep the legs thin; she stands on her toes in a dancing position, so drawing her feet should be simple.
Work on the dancer’s hands and add a few more contour lines so she doesn’t look like she’s hiding her face or wearing make-up.
If your ballerina is small, you can skip the details and just concentrate on defining her mouth, nose, and eyebrows, as well as drawing a slight contour around her head for the bun. That’s it; she now looks realistic, and all you have to do now is trim her dress and shade her.
Draw the girdle details as realistically as possible, but don’t overcrowd your drawing with extra elements that detract from the main character.
