It’s a fun way to keep your pencil moving and your creativity soaring, ensuring that with each new attempt, your drawings of Deadpool will become even more spectacular.

Funny Surprised Deadpool Drawing

Here, we start with a large oval for head, setting the stage for a whimsical, surprised expression, which is a hallmark of the chibi style. Inside this head shape, two large oval eyes are drawn to exaggerate his astonishment, and the small, simple body beneath is sketched with exaggeratedly short limbs to enhance the cuteness factor.

Each element of the Deadpool’s costume is reduced to its basic shapes, maintaining recognizability while ensuring the drawing remains fun. This method not only captures the essence of the character’s playful surprise but also encourages young artists to experiment with expressing emotion through exaggerated chibi features.
