How to Draw Corpse Bride (Emily)
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Emily from Tim Burton's movie Corpse Bride. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing the Corpse Bride with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Emily from Corpse Bride, start with an oval that comes to a slight point at the bottom in the middle of the page. This is the basic shape for Emily's head. Add two curved, wavy lines at the bottom of that shape. These will be the basic shapes for her neck and shoulders.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the original oval, one vertical and one horizontal. Now draw two smaller lines in between the horizontal construction line and the bottom of the oval. These will be construction lines that will help you place Emily's facial features later on.
Step 3: On top of the oval, draw the top of the Corpse Bride's veil as a long, thin, horizontal shape that curves slightly downward. On either end of that shape, draw a long vertical line that nearly touches the top of Emily's shoulders. This shape will also help you draw Emily's hair later on.
Step 4: Emily has big eyes, so draw two big circles that sit on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical line.
Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch of Emily from Tim Burton's Corpse Bride! You have the basic shape for Emily the Corpse Bride, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
