What makes a person - or in this case, a cartoon outline - appear pretty? It has been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But certain features are often lauded in art and popular culture, from Barbie dolls to anime.

Among these are large eyes, full lips, long necks, and long hair. We've incorporated all of these features into this beautiful girl drawing.

Scientists have even done research on how beauty is perceived. What did they find? "Beauty has many facets. Research shows there are many biological, psychological, cultural and social aspects." Many of these change over time, as can be observed in photos from different time periods.

Beauty is also up to each person. The same research stated, "What each person considers to be 'beautiful' is constantly being updated by his or her own experiences."

Unlock your inner beauty as you expand your artistic skills with this sketch.
