Hi, my name is Jessica, and I'm an artist, and today we're going to draw a ballet tutu. So we have are ballerina, there she is, isn't she lovely? And she's got her arms up and a lovely ballerina pose and her body comes down into this small waist area, and then here is where the tutu comes in, so the tutu will come out, just like this, almost like a dress but much wider, and then there will be a ruffle around the edge, and the ruffle doesn't have to be perfect, because generally there's a few different ruffles that make up the tutu. We can draw some lines down the front of it, just like this, and then there are some other pieces that are involved, sometime there's like a nice neckline or some ruffles on the sleeve area, and ballerina will also be doing something interesting with her legs, so, you can just go ahead and add a little bit more ruffle in there just to fill it out. And, sometimes if you want to you can just make the whole tutu be all ruffles, and that's totally fine too, because some tutus have more ruffles than others, it depends on how much you like ruffles. And basically, the way I'm doing my ruffles, as you may or may not be able to see, is I'm taking these sort of squiggly lines like this, and just putting them side-by-side, right on top of each other, just like that. And before you know it, you've got a ballet tutu. And that's how you draw a ballet tutu.
