Step 6: On the lower, right side of the body, draw a U-shaped arc as a guide for the top part of the leg. Below that, draw a small oval- like shape as a guide for Pikachu's foot.
Step 7: On top of the body, draw a long, zigzag shape as a guide for Pikachu's tail. Sketch lightly at first. When you get the shape and size right, darken the line.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing.
Step 8: Lightly sketch a small circle on top of the line inside the head, near the left side, for the eye. Pay attention to the size of the eye in relation to the rest of the head. When you get the size and placement right, draw a sloping line on top of Pikachu's eye for the eyebrow. Darken the rest of the circle too. Inside the eye, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. Inside the eye, at the bottom, draw a small, moon-like shape for the iris. Now shade the eye except for the small shapes inside.
Step 9: Under the construction line in the head, draw a small circle for Pikachu's red cheeks. The bottom of the cheek circle should touch the guide for the arm. On the left side of the head, under the construction line, draw a tiny triangle and shade it in for the Pokemon's nose.
