How to Draw Zelda
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Princess Zelda from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Zelda with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Zelda, start with an egg shape that points down in the middle of the page. You don't have to draw it perfectly because it's only a guide for Zelda's head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the egg shape, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so they follow the contour of the shape. Draw two smaller lines in between the horizontal construction line and the bottom of the egg. These will be construction lines that will help you place Zelda's facial features later on.
Step 3: On top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line, draw two shapes that resemble footballs. Draw the shape on the left slightly smaller because of the perspective. These shapes will make this video game character's eyes later on.
Step 4: Draw a curved line similar to a letter C on both sides of the egg for Zelda's ears. At the bottom of the egg, draw a couple of short, curved lines for her neck.
Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch of Zelda from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game! You have the basic shape for Princess Zelda, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
