Hi, I'm Rosalie, and I'm an artist. And, I'm going to show you how to draw the silhouette of the side view of a child. So, I'm going to draw the child's head. It's going to be in profile, and I can draw using sort of sketchy guidelines and stuff, because the whole thing's going to be colored in, because that's what a silhouette is, it's all solid. So, a child has smaller and more rounded facial features generally than their adult counterparts. So, just sort of draw in a little, cute little silhouette there of the facial features. And, they have a large cranium, which is the skull part, in comparison to the rest of their body, because that's just how children are. And, I'm going to color it in carefully, just keeping in the lines, and that's what's going to make it a silhouette. Just coloring it in. And then, just keep coloring it. It's a child's head in profile. And, I'm just coloring the whole thing in, because it's a silhouette, a silhouette is solid. And, I'm going to put some hair, just the thickness of the hair there. Maybe a little bit of hair texture, and then just some more coming down in the back. A little hairstyle for this kid. And, that is how I draw a silhouette of the side view of a child.
