So, I have prepared an excellent and exciting drawing lesson in which I would like to tell and show you how to draw Raichu step by step. This is another great tutorial that focuses on drawing your favorite characters.
Raichu is a Pokémon creature from the Pokémon series of games, manga, and anime. Raichu is believed to be an Electric-type Pokémon from the first generation of Pokémon. It evolves from Pikachu with the Thunder Stone.
Raichu is orange, has a white belly and brown tips on its hind and front legs. Raichu’s front legs are short and directed in different directions. This Pokémon has unusually shaped brown ears, a thin black tail with a large yellow or brown lightning tassel.
His face looks very cute and funny, he has yellow cheeks, small eyes and a nose. Raichu is considered to be a more evil character than Pikachu. Its long tail serves as a lightning rod for electric attacks.
