How to Draw Mulan
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Mulan from Walt Disney's Mulan. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start with a big oval in the middle of the page. The oval doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a basic guide for Mulan’s head.
Step 2: Under the oval, draw two curved lines as guides for Mulan’s neck and shoulders.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the oval, 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 oval. These will be construction lines that will help you place Mulan’s facial features later on.
Step 4: On top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line, draw two shapes that resemble long footballs as guides for Mulan's eyes. The shape on the left should be smaller because of perspective.
Step 5: Draw a curved line similar to a backward letter C on the right side of the head as a guide for Mulan's ear.
