learn how to draw Elsa from frozen step by step

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "Elsa from Frozen". Frozen was launched in 2013 and went on to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time. Not only that - it has launched a massive selection of products from DVDs to clothing to luxurious toys ... even waffle makers! Frozen-themed outfits and celebrations are likewise hugely popular. 

Here are some interesting facts about Frozen cartoon:

1. The names Hans, Kristoff, Anna, and Sven are a tribute to The Snow Queen author Hans Christian Andersen. Say their names in a row quickly.

2. In March, two firemen in Boston sang "Let It Go" to a girl stuck in an elevator to soothe her down to save her.

3. Anna and Elsa weren't sisters in a preliminary version of the cartoon. Anna was a peasant who journeyed to ask Ice Queen Elsa to freeze her broken heart. That film sounds excellent too.

4. Elsa's signature snowflake can be seen in Anna's eyes when her body is frozen.

5. Animators had to develop a new program, Tonic, to animate Elsa's hair. Because of the braid, she has 420,000 CGI strands of hair. That's 15 times more than Rapunzel!
