Basic Framework for Pikachu

First, let's draw where we want the body to be. Draw a circle for the head and then draw another circle for the body. Let's draw a line done the middle of the body and a cross in the face to help us know which way Pikachu is facing. Let's then draw a couple of lines for the arms and the tail.

Outlining the Head and Ears

Now let's outline the head by drawing a line around the top circle that follows the curves. End this line around the bottom of the circle so the arms can be added in later. Next, let's add some ears by drawing two elongated "V"s on each side of the head.

Outlining the Body

Outline the bottom circle bu make a curve near the bottom so his feet can be added in. Curve the lines all the way up to the bottom of the arm lines. Now, we can add the arms by drawing very deep "U" shpaes that end at the body.

Adding the Lightning Tail and Feet

We are almost done with our tutorial on how to draw Pikachu. We are going to add the tail around the tail line we drew earlier. Make sharp zig-zagging shapes that will form the tail so that it looks like a lightning bolt. Now add in little "U" shapes for the feet. Also add in tiny "U"s on the hands to make fingers.

Let's add in the final details now. Draw two circles for the eyes and two circles for the cheecked. Place a little triangular noce in between the eyes and, lastly, make a "U" shape for the mouth with a rounded "W" on top of it for the lips. Lastly, let's erase all of our pencil lines.

Now that you know how to draw Pikachu, you can color your finished drawing. I have added in some lighting bolts around him to make the drawing more exciting. I hope you enjoyed drwaing Pikachu.
