Tiana of Maldonia, or Tia for short, is a Disney princess. In fact, she is the ninth and most recently introduced Disney princess.

You can learn how to draw Tiana from The Princess and the Frog with the help of this cartoon drawing tutorial.

Tiana lived in New Orleans during the Jazz Age of the 1920s. She worked as a cook and dreamed of opening her own restaurant. When she kisses a frog, she falls victim to a curse which turns her into a smiley green amphibian as well. This leads to an adventure in the bayou.

What is Princess Tiana like? "From a young age, Tiana knew that a dream is a little bit of magic and a lot of hard work.

She dug deep and found the courage to keep on trying, despite the odds, because Tiana is a visionary who learned the joy of sharing good food with others from her father. She is focused and driven to achieve her goals, despite the many obstacles she faces."

Did you know? Tiana's story is based upon the Brothers' Grimm fairy tale The Frog Prince. Story elements were inspired by a real-life New Orleans chef named Leah Chase. And the unexpected results of her enchanted kiss mirror the circumstances of Shrek's Princess Fiona.

How to Draw Tiana from The Princess and The Frog Step 01

1. Begin by drawing Princess Tiana's eyes. Use curved lines to sketch the teardrop shape of the eyes. Notice the thick, dark line on top of each eye, which flares outward at the corner to form the eyelashes.

Within each eye, draw three successively smaller circles. Shade between the two smallest to indicate the pupil. Then, draw the eyebrows using thick curved lines.
