Let's Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!!!
Drawing a realistic braid isn't nearly as hard as you might think. It just so happens I recorded the whole process to share with you!!
I know drawing hairstyles intimidates so many people, so I've taken it upon myself to break it down for you, step by step!
Now before we get to drawing hair, we need to get this face drawn properly. See how her head is turned in a profile, but not ALL the way? We can still see her right eye a little bit in this pose. It's called a three quarter view portrait, and is actually one of the hardest facial positions to draw.
If you've never drawn this view before, or struggle with 3/4 portraits, simply click the button below and I'll send my 3/4 Portrait Face Drawing Guidlines straight to your inbox.
Once you've got your three quarter profile face drawing guidelines printed out, click over to watch this video and see how I put everything into practice, and add on this gorgeous braid.
Wishing there was a slower version of this? I know. YouTube is so awesome because it's so free and fast and FUN! But I know for a lot of my students it's just too darn fast.
If you'd like to take this entire drawing (including step-by-step, real time, how to draw this face...everything from eyelashes, nose, mouth, hair...from SCRATCH) I've included it as a full length lesson in one of the advanced classrooms of The Fun Fab Drawing Club over at Awesome Art School.
Feel like the braid drawing lesson is a little tough, and you'd like to practice drawing a 3/4 face with your new cheatsheet? Check this playlist out on my YouTube Drawing channel. It's just for beginners!

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
