Since its release in 2013, Disney's feature film Frozen has become a beloved addition to the Disney princess movie collection.
In the film, Elsa the Snow Queen shares the spotlight with her younger sister Anna. Elsa has the magical ability to create ice and snow.
Would you like to be able to draw Frozen's Elsa the Snow Queen? Simply follow this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. You will need a piece of paper and something with which to draw, such as a pencil, pen, or marker. You may also want to use an eraser and color your drawing using crayons, markers, or colored pencils.
In each illustration, new lines added in that step are highlighted in blue, whereas previous lines are shown in black. Sketch lightly, as you will need to erase some of your early lines to complete the drawing.
Begin by drawing two slightly curved lines.
Connect the lines on each end with a curved line.
Form Elsa's ear using a curved line, nearly enclosing an oval. Use a long curved line to draw her chin.
Erase the guide line from the middle of the face.
Use a series of long, wavy, curving lines to begin outlining Elsa's hair.
Draw more wavy hair lines. Allow some of the lines to meet other lines in a sharp point.
Enclose the area of her hair by using curved lines to connect those already drawn. Continue the curved lines on the far side of the face.
Add more detail and depth to the hair by drawing a few more short, curved lines. Allow two lines to meet in a curving point on the forehead, forming a lock of hair.
Erase the guide lines from the hair. Add detail by drawing wavy, curving lines along the length of the locks of hair. Draw a series of lines meeting in a point in front of the ear.
Draw the neck using two nearly parallel curved lines that flare apart at the bottom.
From the left side of the neck, draw two more nearly parallel, slightly curved lines to form Elsa's arm.
Draw Elsa's torso by extending a curved line down from her right shoulder. Add the details of her dress by drawing a curved line from shoulder to shoulder, allowing it to dip and form a point just before meeting the right shoulder. Extend another curved line from the arm to the opposite side of the figure. Draw one more slightly curved line extending downward from the last line.
Draw Elsa's braid. Begin by extending a long, curved line from the back of her head to the base of her neck. Then, use a series of overlapping curved lines to form the braid across her shoulder and the front of her torso. Allow some of the lines to meet in points.
Use curved lines to complete the strands of the braid across her shoulder. Add detail by drawing several short, curved lines running the length of each braid section.
To draw Elsa's eyes, begin by drawing two irregular egg shapes that come to a blunt point near the center of the face. Above each eye, draw an eyebrow using two curved lines. The eyebrow lines will meet in a sharp point towards the outside of the face, and a blunt point towards the inside.
Detail the inner ear using a curved line. To draw the mouth, begin with a curved line. Draw a wavy line above and a curved line below to form lips. Draw a short line below the mouth to indicate the dimple of the chin.
Draw an oval in the interior of each eye. Draw a curved line crossing the eye, just above the oval. Draw several jagged points above this line to form eyelashes. Shade the eyelashes.
Draw the nose using at least four curved lines. Within each eye, draw another oval. Draw two smaller ovals within each oval. Shade the area between the larger and smaller ovals.
Draw a series of irregular squares and rectangles to detail the front of the dress. Draw small stars and a flower on the braid.
Color your drawing. Elsa is typically drawn with blonde hair, pink lips, pale skin, and a blue gown.
According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica , the cross is "the principal symbol of the Christian religion." Millions of people wear a cross on a necklace or employ the cross in body art or to decorate their homes, vehicles, or clothing.
The cross as a symbol has a long history spanning numerous non-Christian religions. Simple X or + marks are found in prehistoric cave drawings. In ancient Egypt, the cross-like ankh or crux ansata - translated "cross with a handle - was often depicted in the hand of the pharaoh or of various deities. It was used both as a fertility symbol and to represent life. W. E. Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words also notes that the cross or t was used as a symbol for the Chaldean god Tammuz.
For 300 years after the founding of Christianity, there is no historical evidence of the use of this symbol in worship. It came into popularity when promoted by Roman Emperor Constantine, between 306 and 337 A.D. Throughout the Middle Ages in Europe, the cross was used as a religious symbol. The design, for example, adorned the shields of knights and crusaders. The cross also appears in much of the religious artwork from the sixth century onward, appearing in paintings, on the cover and pages of religious texts, and in architecture, especially of churches.

All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and an eraser. Note that in each step, new lines are highlighted in blue, while lines drawn in previous steps are shown in black. At times, you will need to erase lines in order to complete the step. You may also wish to use colored pencils, crayons, markers, or paints to shade your finished drawing.
The type of bone typically rendered in cartoons - and in this drawing guide - is known as a long bone. Long bones are hard and dense. They give the body strength and structure and are used to help you move around. Long bones can be found in the arms, legs, wrist, ankle, and fingers. The thigh bone, or femur, is a long bone.
Long bones and filled with both yellow and red bone marrow. Red marrow produces blood cells and yellow marrow is used to store fats.
Why do we feed bones to dogs? Bones contain minerals and nutrients. They also satisfy a dog's desire to chew, which in turn helps clean their teeth. Additionally, the dog food that we feed our pets today was not invented until 1860. For thousands of years, family dogs were simply fed table scraps. This often included bones and undesirable portions of meat.
