What you will do first is draw out the guidelines and shapes to form a nice body frame for Snow White. Start by drawing out a nicely shaped circle for her head with some facial guidelines drawn in as well. Next you will draw out the shapes of her puffed up shoulder sleeves and then the shape of her narrow torso. Then you can draw the shape of the bottom of her dress as shown. The guidelines for the arms, hands and feet should be drawn in next.
In this step you will start to sketch out the shape of her innocent looking face or shall I say the shape of her cheeks and the beginning lining for her hair. Then you will sketch in her mouth, nose, and first steps of her eyes. After that you can begin the detailing on the left puff shoulder sleeve and then draw out the shapes of her arms and neck. You will also draw out the lining for the creases in her dress as well as the ruffles on the bottom and the detail on her left hand.
As you can see by the time you are done with this step Snow White will almost look like the beautiful princess she is. You will now start sketching in her face like the eyebrows and her hair as well. Then you can add her small perfect bow. You will next draw out her high collar that rest just at the bottom of her hair. Next detail her shoulder sleeves and the front of the top of her dress as well as the bottom. You will also need to draw out the shape of her right arm and hand.
In this last step you will draw in the finishing details for Snow White. Draw the ribbon on her bow as well as the rest of the ruffles in her shoulder sleeve and dress. Next you will draw out her shoes and make sure her eyes are all drawn in as well. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
This is what your finished drawing of Snow White should look like when you are done. All you have left to do is color he in her pretty red, blue and yellow colors. That will end this tutorial on how to draw Snow White one of Disney's animated cartoons step by step.
And there she is!
