How to Draw Fluttershy
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Fluttershy 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 by drawing a circle on the top left part of the paper. It doesn’t need to be perfect. It’s just a basic shape for Fluttershy’s head. Leave enough room at the bottom so you can draw the body later on.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines, one horizontal and one vertical. The vertical line should be close to the left 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 Fluttershy’s facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two ovals as guides for Fluttershy’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 side should be thinner because of the perspective.
Step 4: Below Fluttershy’s head, draw a bigger oval lying on its side. This will be a guide for Fluttershy's torso. Pay attention to the size of this oval in relation to the first circle. The edges of the circle and oval should touch.
Step 5: Under the torso, draw two lines as guides for Fluttershy’s legs. The line on the left should be angled near the middle to represent the bent leg. The other leg should be a tiny bit longer and slightly curved.
