How to Draw Tinkerbell
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Tinkerbell from Disney's Peter Pan. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Tinkerbell with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start with an oval that slightly tapers in at the bottom, and draw it in the middle of the page. Add two lines at the bottom of that shape. These will be the basic shapes for Tinkerbell’s head and neck.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the oval, one vertical line and one horizontal. When drawing the lines, bend them so they follow the contour of the shape. In between the horizontal line and the bottom of the oval, draw a smaller horizontal line. In between that line and the main horizontal line, draw an even smaller horizontal line. These will be construction lines that will help you place Tinkerbell’s features later on.
Step 3: Now draw Tinkerbell’s eyes by drawing two small egg shapes. These shapes should be placed on top of the horizontal construction line. The left shape should just barely graze the vertical construction line.
Step 4: Draw a small arc above each eye for Tinkerbell’s eyebrows. Draw a backward C-shaped curve on the right side of this cartoon character's head just below the horizontal construction line for this Peter Pan character's ear.
Step 5: To the left of the smallest horizontal line, draw a wide letter C. This will be Tinkerbell’s nose. Draw a wide U-shaped curve below the other small horizontal line for Tinkerbell's mouth.
