how to draw the Virgin Mary step-by-step

Sketch the maiden's face with curved lines for the "U" shaped jaw and "V" shaped hairline, noting the opening.

Draw two curved lines to create Mary's headscarf, with additional curved lines for cloth folds.

Extend lines from the bound headscarf, creating a curved, long line on one side and another on the other side.

Draw a curved line extending from the head to enclose the neck, with a parallel line connected at the end.

Connect the neck and headscarf with curved lines to outline the bodice of the garment.

Draw a horizontal curved line and connect it with two short curved lines to create a sash/belt for the bodice.

Create a drawing of Mary by adding textured hair, scarf, and thick curved eyebrows.

Create concentric circles of varying sizes for each eye, filling in the pupil with shade.

Draw small "U" shaped lines to indicate the nose and mouth.
