In this drawing guide, we will show you how to draw Moana. This fearless girl from Disney’s story has become very popular. So let’s try to draw her!
First, we outline the basic proportions of our character with circles. We see a small teenage girl. Accordingly, we outline the contours of the head, chest, and pelvis, and the pelvis should be larger and wider than the chest.
This step will help us outline the features of Moana’s pose. With the help of sticks, we outline the arms and legs of our heroine. The arms are represented by two angles of different sizes, the legs look like two straight lines with a slight bend in the center.
Now we can do a little detail. So, we form the outline of the upper part of the female body using the shapes from the first step. We outline two intersecting lines inside the head contours. The horizontal line will show us the location of the eyes. This line is located slightly below the conventional center.
In this step, we will draw the outlines of the arms. The shoulder joint and fist is a very large, rounded figure, while the shoulder and forearm appear as cylinders with slight smooth tapering.
This will be the last step in creating the outline of our character’s silhouette. In this step, we sketch out the outlines of the strong, muscular legs.
Have you noticed that large, expressive eyes are becoming popular not only in anime cartoons? Many studios use this technique. Disney is no exception – these guys’ characters always have pretty big and pretty eyes. Let’s sketch out the outlines of our heroine’s eyes in this step.
In this step, we will draw a rather wide nose and a charming smile. Also here we will draw the final outlines of the face oval and slightly sharpen the lower part of this shape.
Moana has very beautiful hair. Let’s depict the outlines of the long hair, which is shifted slightly to the side due to the wind. As you can see, we are using a short, wavy path.
So we continue the guide on how to draw Moana. Let’s draw a small medallion and a fabric that sits on top of the torso. It looks like a regular top with a wavy hem.
In this step, we will create the final outlines of the shoulders and forearms. The forearms should have smooth tapering towards the hands. Avoid too sharp bends and too wide contours.
The upper legs and lower torso are covered with a long skirt. The skirt has a belt and a cutout on the top layer. The hem of the skirt has a fringe. Let’s draw this.
Moana is an islander. She swims and runs a lot, so she has an athletic build. So let’s draw the muscular legs of our heroine in this step.
In this step, we erase all unnecessary guidelines and check the correctness of the actions of the previous steps. All inaccuracies should be corrected right now because after coloring it will be quite difficult.
Now we can color our drawing. You probably remember the basic colors of Moana’s clothes, don’t you? Don’t forget black hair, green eyes, and dark, tanned skin. Prepare darker shades of each color in order to paint small shadows.
So this was a guide on how to draw Moana. We are waiting for your opinions in the comments. We are also waiting for your criticism and your messages about the difficulties that arose during this drawing lesson.
