Barbie Tutorial Video
Here’s a brand new How to draw Barbie tutorial that I hope helps young students get in on the fun that her new movie is offering this summer. It looks like some light-hearted fun, so why not take advantage of the moment and learn a little bit more about what makes Barbie, look like Barbie?
First of all, her eyes are usually big, compared to the rest of her face. That’s true for the outer shape and the inside iris and pupil as well. If someone had eyes like that in real life, they might actually look rather odd.
Second, the nose is extra small. It’s about half the size a normal nose would be. Poor Barbie would have trouble breathing if it was really hers.
Then, her hair, is of course BIG and very full. And it always seems to have lots of curve line waves going on around her face.
I’m making these points only to show how exaggerated animation drawings (and dolls) can be, and how different they are from real life. Just a reminder that it’s good to remember they are two very different things. OK, on to the Barbie tutorial!
