A queen is a female monarch, the counterpart to a king. Today, 26 monarchies rule over more than 40 countries. Foremost modern queens include Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

There are a number of visual cues that a picture depicts a queen. The most common is the crown. Another is the scepter, an ornamented rod that symbolized authority. Variations of these symbols have been used in art since ancient times.

In popular culture, the term is used for a prominent woman, such as in the phrases "beauty queen" and "queen bee."

2. Erase the top of the oval. Replace it with the queen's hair. Use long, curved lines to outline the shape of the hair. Draw a "C" shaped ear, and detail the inside with a curved line. Use a series of overlapping curved lines to draw the hairline at the forehead. Notice the upturned point in the middle of the hairline, which indicates a part in the hair.

3. Draw the crown, erasing as necessary. Use curved lines to sketch the sides and bottom of the crown. Then, draw points of straight lines across the top of the crown. Connect them using "C" shaped lines. Draw a curved line at the bottom of the crown, and another between the points. Draw circles along the base of the crown to indicate jewels.

4. Detail the queen's face. Use a curved line for the smile, capped with short lines at each end. Use a "C" shaped line for the nose, and irregular rounded shapes for the eyes. Within each eye, enclose several circles within larger circles. Shade between the two smallest to indicate the pupil. Draw short, curved lines along the sides of the eyes to indicate eyelashes. Enclose a pointed, curved shape above each eye to form the brows.
