Intro: Start drawing Ash Ketchum from Pokemon with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start drawing Ash Ketchum with a rectangle that has rounded edges and slightly bulges out at the sides. This will be Ash Ketchum’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw an intersecting vertical line down the middle of Ash Ketchum's head shape that bends slightly to the left. Draw two horizontal lines, one just above the middle of the head shape and another near the bottom of the head shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Ash Ketchum’s features later on.
Step 3: Now sketch Ash Ketchum’s cap. Draw a curve above of the top horizontal construction line. Extend this curve outside of the main head shape a little. Connect the right tip of that line to the top of the head shape; instead of darkening in the original construction line, draw this line outside of the head shape. Now draw in the bill of Ash Ketchum’s hat. Below the horizontal curve you just drew, draw a wavy line that curves slightly upward in where it crosses with the vertical construction line.
Step 4: Now draw in the shape of Ash Ketchum’s face. Draw a line that starts on the left side below Ash's cap and curves inward towards the middle of the head shape. Then make this line come back out to meet the bottom left corner of the original head shape. This is Ash Ketchum's cheek. Make an extra wide V shape to make his chin. From the right side of this V shape, draw a vertical line up to the brim of the cap. This last line should be inside Ash Ketchum's main head shape.
Step 5: Sketch Ash Ketchum’s eyes by drawing to upside-down Us on top of the top horizontal construction line on either side of Ash's face. Draw the top of the curved U shape close to the bottom of his cap. Connect the points of the U shapes together at the horizontal construction line. Draw Ash Ketchum’s ears with C-shaped curves on either side of his head. The left ear should be in the middle of the horizontal line while the right ear should start at the horizontal line.
