How to Draw Mickey Mouse
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Disney's Mickey Mouse. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Disney's Mickey Mouse with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Mickey Mouse, start with a circle on the page that will be Mickey Mouse's head. Draw the circle slightly below and to the left of the center of the page, and don't make it too big because you need room for Mickey Mouse's big round ears.
Step 2: Next draw two intersecting lines across the circle. When drawing the lines, bend them so that they follow the contour shape of a sphere. Draw the vertical line quite close to the left edge of the circle, and draw the horizontal one in the middle. These are construction lines that will help you place Mickey Mouse's features later on.
Step 3: Starting where the construction lines intersect, draw a small circle that extends to the outside of the main circle. Draw the center of this circle slightly below the horizontal construction line. This will be Mickey Mouse's snout.
Step 4: On top of Mickey's snout, draw an oval that is roughly the same height as the snout and that slightly grazes the main circle on the right side. This will be Mickey Mouse's nose.
Step 5: Where the horizontal construction line ends on the right outer edge of the main circle, draw a smaller circle to make an ear. Higher up the on Mickey Mouse's head, draw another circle of the same size. It's important to get the right size for his ears, otherwise Mickey won't look right. To get the correct ratio, think of his head as a quarter and his ears as two dimes.
