Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Walt Disney's Pinocchio. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a big circle near the middle of the page. This will be a guide for Pinocchio's head. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Pinocchio's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small ovals as guides for Pinocchio's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The oval on the left should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 4: Draw a wider oval with a horizontal orientation under the eye on the left as a guide for Pinocchio's nose. Position this oval so that the edges are touching the the construction lines at the top and on the right.
Step 5: In the space between the nose and the bottom of the main circle, draw a shape similar to a sideways letter D as a guide for Pinocchio's mouth.
