Saturday Art School: How to Draw Pikachu Pokemon

I am restarting my Saturday Art School from this week...
hopefully even though I do have my hands full, I will be able to keep up the consistency, if not every week, then at least twice a month at least.
Mostly because I do love making tutorials and also because I know the kids love it too!

so to start with, I'll make what my kids (my two boys) enjoy these days.
And its Pokemon.
whether its my 13 yr old or my 8 yr old... both of them love Pokemon, and even thier cousins.
So I guess it would be a popular thing to learn to draw?
and especially the Pikachu Pokemon...


HOW TO DRAW PIKACHU POKEMON in 11 easy steps!



 1. Draw a medium sized circle. This will define the face structure.
2. See how the Pikachu is tilted in the above colored drawing?   So to get the angle of the pose, draw a tilted vertical line cutting through the face circle like shown.
also draw a horizontal tilted line like shown in the circle that is cutting the circle again in half.


3. Draw an oval in the lower half of the Pokemon face and then the lower body shape like shown in the sketch.


4. Draw two lines emanating from the top of the head on on both side... see the angles shown in the drawing.
Also make the two lines tilted upwards which denote the arms with circles at the end.
See how the feet are made at the base of the drawing? Make them just like this... elengated and one end thicker than the other.
Draw all of them with a light hand (not too dark)




 5. Make the ear around the lines that you had drawn at the top of the head.
Join the line around the arms+hand circle that was made in the previous step, like shown.


6. Make the teenie tiny fingers and thumb around the hand circle like shown.
Then draw the legs on both sides of the body shape, joining the foot.



7. Erase the extra lines in the ear, hand and the legs like shown in the step below.

8. Now we come to the face... remember the lines that you had drawn in the face earlier?
That will help you in the placement of the features of the pokemon.
Just see the drawing and draw the eyes touching the oval of the face on both sides of the centre line of the face.
The tiny nose will go in the centre of the face just where the oval cuts the centre vertical line.
In the same way add the mouth and the cheeks like shown in the drawing.


9. Please remove all the extra lines that are there in the drawing, while checking in the image shown below. Make sure not to erase any important line.


10. Draw the zigzag tail of the Pokemon like shown in the image below. Make sure that the end of the tail is thicker than the base that is attached to the body.

11. Take a black marker/ Sketch pen and draw the outline of the Pokemon that you have made.
Color in the eyes and the tips of the ears.


12. Color your favourite Pokemon in its bright yellow colors and use it in your cards or display it in your home!
