How to draw a girl with an umbrella step by step / Easy drawing for girls step by step

In this tutorial we use the Pencil drawing mode of the Paintology app to create this drawing of a girl with umbrella.

In the Pencil mode of drawing, we use the gray scale to select the gray tones to make this quick drawing which can be done in less than half an hour.

Make sure you have the tutorial loaded into the canvas which shows the outline of the girl and umbrella. This will help you to focus on laying down the tones using the shade brush tool.

Here is the template of the outline on the phone:

Once loaded, you can use the shade brush to complete this drawing. We use a thicker brush size to make out the large areas of dark and white and adjust the gray tone from the color bar at the bottom.

Some of tips on using the shade brush:

The shade brush of the Paintology app behaves in the same way that a normal pencil would. As you go over the same area again, it builds up the image and becomes darker. You can create the tones in several ways, using the method mentioned above where you simply go over the same stroke. The second way, is to continuously vary the color tones in the gray tone palette and lay down a few strokes over the areas we want to cover. You will see all of this in the drawing above.

The use of laying down tones in this manner is entirely up to you and the to some extent the drawing you are making. With enough practice you can create realistic pencil drawings like the ones shown below.
