The following is an older video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: To draw Pikachu, start with a vertical rectangle with rounded corners. Draw this shape on the right side of the paper to make room for Pikachu's tail. This will be the basic shape for his head and body.
Step 2: Now draw a vertical line that divides the shape equally in half and a horizontal line that divides it equally on top and bottom. Draw another horizontal line in the middle of the top part. These are all construction lines that will help you place Pikachu's features later on.
Step 3: Next, draw the basic shape of Pikachu's head in between the horizontal construction line in the center and the top of the main shape. Round out his head on the top, taper it in near the top horizontal construction line, and then bring the line in closer at the horizontal construction line in the middle of the rectangle.
Step 4: Draw in Pikachu's body by starting in close on top, just outside of his neck, and then widening the bottom. Also, at the bottom, draw the shape up in a bit toward the vertical construction line.
Step 5: Pikachu's ears are basic leaf or feather shapes. Draw the left one going up vertically and draw the right one horizontally to give Pikachu character.
