How to Draw Charmander
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Charmander from Pokemon. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: When learning how to draw Charmander, 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 small circle near the top of the page. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide for Charmander's head. Leave enough room at the bottom for his body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across Charmander's head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. These will be construction lines that will help you place Charmander's facial features later on.
Step 3: Now draw the guides for Charmander's eyes. Draw them as two small shapes right above the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical line. The shape of these guides is essentially a tall arc with a line under it. The shape on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 4: Under Charmander's head, draw another circle that's just slightly bigger than the head. Draw two lines on either side of the circle to connect it to the head. This will be the guide for drawing Charmander's body.
Step 5: On either side of the body, draw two long arcs as guides for Charmander's arms. The arc on the left side should point down and be close to the body. The arc on the right should point up and away from the body.
