STEP 1. Draw out the outline for a geisha face like so, then draw in the bun shape for the hair.   STEP 2. Slowly sketch out the actual structure of her face from a 3/4 angle. When you have accomplished that task, begin drawing the eyes in the form of lids and lashes. Draw the small shaped eyebrows, as well as the nose and mouth or lips. Add the crease lines to form the shape of the eyes as they appear closed.   STEP 3. Here you will begin sketching out the pulled back, perfectly combed and style hair. Draw the swirls in her hair, then draw in the threaded band made of hair to hold her bun. Sketch out her earlobe, then draw the lining of her neck.   STEP 4. The shapes that you will draw in this step is the guides for the flowers in her hair and on her neck.   STEP 5. Using the shapes you just made, draw in the flowers in her hair, and then take your time as you draw the larger flower on her neck. When the flowers are sketched out and detailed, you will need to draw some fallen flower petals.   STEP 6. This is when the lessons starts to get tricky. Begin drawing the water that swoops around her neck and splashes in different directions. You will draw some more flowers on the water, then take your time as you detail the water.   STEP 7. The water that surrounds the geisha is not done yet which is why you will draw in the loop, and circle that flow from the side of the bun.   STEP 8. Draw in the rest of the water or wave, then add another flower at the base of the wave. Detail both objects if needed.   STEP 9. And finally, draw two more smaller flowers and add some more fallen petals. Erase all the mistakes and you're done.   STEP 10. Here is the beautiful Geisha when you are done. Now you can color in the drawing using either black and white shades, or use all different types of colors to make a piece that looks like some Ed Hardy's work.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4.
