How to draw Pikachu from Pokemon

In this lesson – how to draw Pikachu, we’re tackling easily the most popular of all the Pokemon characters. Kind of resembling a bunny rabbit (again – kind of!) – this character is super simple to draw.

And with that – let’s get to it!

First Step – A Couple Circles Will Do the Trick Just Fine

Viewed at a 3/4 angle – this character is still very simple to draw. As I mentioned up top – looking somewhat like a rabbit, you can sketch out the ears and limbs ahead of time to help you bring the structure into view…

The only tricky part – I’d say – is with the tail. It’s sort of like a lightning bolt, but sort of squared off at the end — take a look at a few ‘official’ likenesses of the character to see what I mean.

OK – onward!

Second Step – Draw Your Pokemon Character!

A good place to start – OF COURSE! – is with the eyes and face. Once you get these parts in place, branch out to the ears, bring the head into view — and then work your way on down the drawing from there.

Step by step, here’s how it all unfolds…
