The Narrated step-by-step 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.
Step 1: Draw a big oval near the middle of the paper as a guide for Pichu's head. First make four marks to determine the oval's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Make sure that the marks for the sides of the oval (the width) are farther apart than the marks for the top and bottom (the height) of the oval. The oval should be tilted just a little bit so that the right side is lower. With every step, sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line across the oval as a construction guide to help you place Pichu's facial features later. Draw a curved vertical line for another construction guide. The lines should tilt to the right a bit to follow the tilt of the head.
Step 3: On top of the head, draw two long, vertical lines as guides for Pichu's ears. Use the vertical line inside the head as a guide to help you place the lines for the ears. Draw the lines farther apart at the top. These lines should be very long in relation to the head.
Step 4: Under the head, draw an angled line that's similar to a square as a guide for Pichu's body. The shape for the body should be smaller than the head. First draw two curved, vertical lines for the sides and then close the shape at the bottom with a curved horizontal line.
Step 5: On either side of the body, draw a short, sloping line as guides for Pichu's arms. The line on the left should slope up, while the line on the right should slope down. Don't draw these lines too long.
