"This princess does not back down."
Once known by the name Koriand'r or Kori for short, Starfire was heir to the throne of the planet Tamaran. Ousted during a coup, Starfire then became a slave to alien scientists.
On Earth, Starfire became a member of the Teen Titans. She is known for a gentle, compassionate, and curious personality. She is often confused by the "strange" customs of Earth.
Starfire's superpowers include the ability to fly and to harness the energy of the sun for super strength and rapid healing. She can also shoot "starbolts" from her hands and eyes and produce a shield of ultraviolet energy that can protect her from virtually any weapon or attack.
Would you like to draw Starfire from Teen Titans? This easy, step-by-step superhero drawing guide is designed to show you how. All you will need is a pen, pencil, or marker, and a sheet of paper.
1. Begin by sketching Starfire's face. Use a wide "U" shaped line to sketch the cheeks and chin. Then, draw two "M" shaped lines at the top of the face - one connecting the sides of the face and a slightly smaller one beneath it. Connect the two "M"'s at the bottom using pairs of overlapping curved lines. This forms Starfire's hair. Then, draw a curved line across the center of the larger "M."
2. Detail Starfire's face. Use curved lines to outline her small, pink eyebrows. Then, draw the eyes using three successively smaller ovals, one within another. Above each eye, shade a very thick curved line. Shade smaller curved lines at the sides to indicate the eyelashes. Finally, use curved lines of different lengths to draw the lower eyelids, nose, and mouth.
3. Draw Starfire's ears and hair. Use "C" shaped lines to form the ears. Connect the hair on top of the head to the ears using curved lines. Then, enclose strands of hair beneath the ears using curved lines of different lengths connected at jagged points.
4. Extend two curved lines beneath the head to form the neck. Draw a curved line across the neck. At its bae, draw a pair of "V" shaped lines with flat bases. Connect them at the ends, and an oval in the middle of the "V." Then, extend a pair of curved lines to form the sides of the body, connecting them at the bottom with a curved line. Draw a belt around her waist using an oval for the buckle and pairs of straight lines for the belt.
5. Extend a pair of curved lines from the shoulder to form the arm. Enclose the irregular shape of the wrist gauntlet using curved lines. Enclose a half oval on its face, as well as a curved line across it. Use curved lines to enclose the thumb and fingers.
6. Draw the remaining arm, fist by extending a pair of lines from the shoulder and then by enclosing the gauntlet. Detail it with an oval and curved line, then enclose the fingers.
7. Extend divergent curved lines from below the body to indicate the leg. Band it at the top and bottom with curved lines.
8. Enclose the remaining leg using divergent curved lines, and band it at the top and bottom.
9. Enclose Starfire's long hair using long and short lines, connected by shorter lines that meet at jagged points.
Color Starfire. She has pink hair and wears a grey and purple outfit.

"The eyes are the window to the soul." So states an antiquated maxim. To scientists, however, the eyes are very interesting. For example, researchers are currently developing technology that could use patterns in the iris of the eye to identify people, much as the fingerprint is used currently. Movies and television have long depicted such technology, but it may soon become a reality. In fact, some airports are already testing this 'eye ID' technology.
To artists, the eyes hold another interest. The eyes are surrounded by many, many small muscles, and the movement of these muscles is an indicator of emotion on the human face. Our eyes, for instance, can show whether we are happy, sad, angry, frightened, excited, or bored.
The eyes, then, are an important means of expressing these emotions in the visual arts, yet many artists find the eyes to be one of the more difficult portions of the human face to capture accurately. What is more, it is almost paradoxical that the eyes are one member largely responsible for our ability to draw the eyes of another.
Almost every drawing or painting of humans or animals includes eyes, whether open or closed. As such, many styles have developed. The simplest eyes involve nothing more than a solidly shaded dot. Other simple eyes consists of a circle with a shaded dot inside it. The Japanese manga and anime art styles often lend straight lines and squared corners to the shape of the eye.
