How to Draw Rapunzel from Tangled | Disney Princess


(whistling tune) – Hi, I’m Kim Kha. I’m an artist at The Walt Disney Company. And today I’m gonna be teaching
you how to draw Rapunzel. First, I usually draw a circle. That’s gonna be my guideline
for where her skull is. Then I’ll draw a horizontal line for where I’m gonna be putting her eyes. Then I’ll draw like a vertical line to show where the center of her face is. Now the reason we’re drawing lightly is because we want to be
able to change it later on. And not to commit on some of
these lines yet too early. From this line, from this horizontal line, I’m gonna be drawing in her cheek. To her chin. And draw here. And this is where, roughly,
I want, her ears will be. And like, you know,
you don’t have to stick to any of these lines yet. You can always change your mind. And have fun, ya know. It’s important to have fun. When you’re drawing. Rapunzel’s eyes are pretty big so I’m just gonna roughly
draw like circles there. And like indicate where
I want her hair to be. Like her hairline. Right there. Basically the proportion
of her face, is like, her eyes is almost like
halfway of her face here. And then, let me just kinda plan out where I want the nose. Then I’ll just lightly kinda
draw where the nose will be. There you go. That’s the center. We’ll add the nostrils here. Her eyes are pretty round so, like that’s why we also use
the circle as guidelines. ‘Cause you can just like
draw darker lines around it. Like, not to round of course,
but a little bit squarish. There you go. That’s the upper lash line. So it’s a little bit thicker than when we draw the lower lash line. And Rapunzel, we don’t usually
draw in her upper lashes so I just like to thicken it up. Let’s give her some eyebrows. Give her like a fun expression. So let’s like lightly sketch in where her eyebrows are. So let’s say I want it like this like one eyebrow is lower than the other. So once I know where I want them to be, just go in and darken it up. (lighthearted music) Like that. Maybe we’ll have her
looking up in that corner. Drawing those ovals for her
irises and then her pupils. Maybe we’ll put a highlight over here. There you go. Then I always like to give
Rapunzel a really happy smile. ‘Cause you know Rapunzel is
like a really cool character. I really like her a lot ’cause she’s just like really positive and happy and she’s an artist like me. So I obviously like
relate to her much more. So I like to do her mouth like you know start with the mouth line and then just add in the lower lip. Like really close to the mouth line because she doesn’t really
have like that full lips. And then just kinda add
in the upper lip line. She doesn’t have that much of a divot so we can keep that pretty simple and like flatter than you would. Maybe I’ll change this part
of her face a little bit. And let’s start with the hair. She doesn’t really have
like a wide forehead. So let’s start over here. The swoosh of her hair usually starts a little bit off center to the left. So it curves up like this. And then it changes direction like that. Let’s start drawing some lines here. (lighthearted chime music) This is like the inner
part of that swoosh. Usually I would just like roughly draw the silhouette of her hair. Like this. And then add in the lines. So the hair lines usually
radiate from this point. And then just draw it like this. And give her hair more fullness because she has a lot of hair. Have fun with her hair basically. (light playful music) Kinda draw in her ears right here. Like it’s about the height of her nose. She’s got that cute little nose too. Kinda upturned. So let’s darken that nose right there. Give her, draw in her neck. Like maybe, this side over here, is much fuller than the other. And just darken the areas
that you really like. So that’s what’s so good
about drawing lightly first, is that you can always change it later on. (slow violin music) Another note for the hair. Like I like to draw the lines
like not equally spaced. So like if you see this one is like nearer to each other than this ya know. And that’s where her collarbones are. That’s the poof of her sleeves. And like just indicate that lace. The lace of her outfit. You just keep darkening
the lines that you like. And there you have it. That’s how you draw Rapunzel. Hope you guys had a
great time, ’cause I did. See you again next time! Thank you! (lighthearted music)
