Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Hiro Hamada from Disney's Big Hero 6. 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 as a guide for the top half of Hiro's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave room at the top for his hair and at the bottom for his jaw.
Step 2: Under the circle, draw a line as a guide for Hiro's jaw and chin. The line should be similar in shape to the letter V, with the bottom corner being more round.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head shape, one vertical and one horizontal. These will be construction lines that will help you place Hiro's facial features later on. Bend the lines a bit to contour to the shape of the head.
Step 4: Draw two small shapes as guides for Hiro's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The shapes of the eyes should be similar to half-circles. The eye on the left should be a little smaller than the one on the right because of the perspective.
Step 5: Under the head, draw two short, curved lines as guide for Hiro's neck.
