How to Draw Kirby
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Kirby from the Nintendo video games. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Nintendo's Kirby with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Kirby, start with a circle in the middle of the page. This will be the basic shape for Kirby's head and body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal line. The end result should look like crosshairs. These will be construction lines that will help you place Kirby's features later on.
Step 3: Now draw Kirby's arms by sketching out two arcs on either side of his body. He's going to be waving, so draw the curve of the arm on the left should higher than the one for the right arm.
Step 4: For Kirby's feet, simply draw large U shapes on the lower half of his body on either side of the vertical construction line. The tips of each U should touch the circle.
Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch of Kirby from the Nintendo video games! You have the basic Kirby shape, 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.
