How to Draw Applejack
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Applejack from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. 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 with a circle on the top side of the paper. It doesn't need to be perfect. It's just a basic shape for Applejack's head. Leave enough room at the bottom for the body.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines, one horizontal and one vertical. The vertical line should be close to the right side of the circle, and the horizontal line should be close to the bottom. Bend the lines so they contour to the shape of the sphere. These are construction lines that will help you place Applejack's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two ovals as guides for Applejack's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line, on either side of the vertical construction line. The oval on the right side should be smaller because of the perspective.
Step 4: Below the head, draw a bigger oval with a diagonal orientation. This will be a guide for Applejack's torso. Pay attention to the size of this oval in relation to the first circle. Don't draw the oval too far down, otherwise the neck will be too long.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that connect the head to the torso to create Applejack's neck. Draw an arc on the top left side of the head as a guide for the ear. The arc should be slightly pointed.
