Step 1: Base of the Head

Draw the base of the head by drawing a rough circle. Don't worry; This doesn't have to be perfect.

Step 4: Shirt

Create an off-shoulder tank top. Use the picture to help you.

Step 5: Shorts and Legs

Create the shorts using the picture as a guide. Make sure to connect the legs to the same line as the shorts. Draw too small u shapes for the knees. use the picture to help you

Step 6: Shoes

Create the shoes using the picture as a guide. Don't forget to add the laces.

Step 7: Arms and Hands

Make the arms and hands using the picture as a guide. In my picture, I made the right arm behind the girl's back. The only hand showing was on the left side. I'm sorry if my hand does not look good, I'm not very good at drawing hands.

Step 8: The Head and Hair

For me, it's easier to draw the hair first, because it sets an outline for the face. In my picture, the girl's hair covers one of her eyes. You can change this if you don't like the look of it. If you want to copy mine, use the picture as a guide.
