Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Aurora/Briar Rose from Disney's Sleeping Beauty. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Sleeping Beauty off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw this Disney princess, start with an egg shape that points down in the middle of the page. This is the basic shape for Sleeping Beauty's head. Add two curved, wavy lines at the bottom of that shape. These will be the basic shapes for Sleeping Beauty’s neck and shoulders.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the egg shape, one vertical and one horizontal line. When drawing the lines, bend them so they follow the contour of the shape. Draw two smaller lines in between the horizontal construction line and the bottom of the egg. These will be construction lines that will help you place Sleeping Beauty’s facial features later on.
Step 3: Now draw guides for Sleeping Beauty’s hair. Starting at the top of the egg shape, draw another horizontal line that comes out of the shape, curves up, grazes the top of the head and cascades down. As the line comes down, it should follow a similar shape as Sleeping Beauty’s head, neck and shoulder.
Step 4: Draw a guide for the right side of Sleeping Beauty’s hair by adding a wavy line that starts at the curve created in step 3 and comes down to meet her shoulder. Above Sleeping Beauty’s head draw a triangle that will represent her crown.
Step 5: On top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line, draw two ovals with pointed ends for this Disney princess’ eyes. Draw the oval on the right smaller because of perspective and should be slightly grazing the vertical construction line.
