How to Draw Pikachu
- Draw the head.
Depict the head in the form of a rounded asymmetrical shape that smoothly expands downward
- Draw the body.
Our character has a small body. The size of the body is almost equal to the size of the head.
- Draw the limbs.
Add small paws. The feet are longer than the upper limbs.
- Draw the ears.
First, sketch out the basic outlines of the ears. Then draw the top edges like in my reference.
- Draw the tail.
As you remember, this lovely Pokemon uses an electric current as a weapon. It’s no surprise that Pikachu’s tail is shaped like a lightning bolt.
- Add the facial details.
Draw round, large eyes, nose and mouth in lines, and the outlines of the blush on the cheeks.
- Erase the guidelines.
Remove the extra lines from the previous steps. Correct any wrong lines and incorrect shapes.
- Color Pikachu
Use traditional colors to paint Pikachu.
