Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Bulbasaur from Pokemon. 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 near the bottom of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Bulbasaur's head. Leave enough room at the top for the rest of his body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across Bulbasaur's head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. These are construction lines that will help you place Bulbasaur's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two triangle-like shapes as guides for Bulbasaur's eyes. Draw them right on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The shape on the right should be a bit narrower because of perspective. The sides of the triangle-like shapes should bulge out and be curvier.
Step 4: Under the horizontal construction line, draw a shape similar to a sideways letter D as a guide for Bulbasaur's mouth. Use the bottom half of the circle as a guide to create the shape.
Step 5: Draw two more triangle-like shapes on top of the head as guides for Bulbasaur's ears. Make the sides bulge out so that they are curvier.
