How to Draw Pocahontas
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Disney's Pocahontas. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Pocahontas with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Pocahontas, start with an oval shape that is pointy at the bottom in the middle of the page. This is the basic shape for Pocahontas' head. Draw two curved lines at the bottom of that shape that come out away from the middle. These will be the basic shapes for Pocahontas' neck and shoulders.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the oval, one vertical and one horizontal. Draw the vertical line in the middle, and draw the horizontal line closer to the top of the oval. Draw two smaller lines equal in distance between the horizontal construction line and the bottom of the oval. These will be construction lines that will help you place Pocahontas' facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small football shapes that are slightly angled sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. These will be the eyes of this Walt Disney character.
Step 4: Now draw Pocahontas' necklace by drawing two big curves that look like the letter U that go around her neck.
Step 5: Now draw guides for Pocahontas' hair. Starting at the top of the oval shape, draw a long curved line that bends to the left and drops down to end at Pocahontas' shoulder. Draw another line on the lower right side of her face that ends at the right shoulder.
