How to Draw Baymax


Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Baymax, the robot from Walt Disney's Big Hero 6. 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.


Draw Baymax Big Hero 1

Step 1: Start by drawing a small circle near the top of the page. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide for the first part of Baymax's head. Baymax is a big character, so leave plenty of room under the head for the body.

Step 2: Draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal, across the circle. The lines should tilt slightly to the right. Notice that the horizontal construction line comes out of the shape of the circle a little. This will help as a guide to draw the sides of Baymax's head in the next step. Don't draw this line too long. It should just stick out of the circle a little bit on either side.

Step 3: Draw an arc on either side of the first circle to complete the shape of Baymax's head. Use the horizontal construction line as a guide to help you determine the width of the arcs. The end result should be similar to an oval on its side.

Step 4: Below Baymax's head, draw a giant circle as a guide for the first part of the body. Baymax is huge, so this circle should be massive compared to the head. There should be a big space between the big circle and the head but don't make it too big, otherwise Baymax will end up too long.

Step 5: Now draw two long curved lines that connect the head to the big circle to complete the guide for Baymax's body.

Step 6: On the left side of the body, draw a small circle similar in size to the first circle of the head. This will be a guide for Baymax's hand.

Step 7: Now add two lines to connect the circle to the body to form Baymax's arm. The outer line should be very long, while the inner line should be short. Under the circle for the hand, draw two arcs similar to the letter U as guides for the digits.

Step 8: Draw another circle that's about the same size as the circle for Baymax's head on the upper right side. This will be a guide for the hand on the right.

Step 9: Draw a series of curved lines around the circle to create a guide for Baymax's arm and digits. An arc at the top similar to an upside-down letter U creates the guide for the digits. Two curved lines of different sizes create the guide for the arm.

Step 10: Draw two long U-shaped arcs under the body as guides for Baymax's legs.

Step 11: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic shape of Baymax from Walt Disney's Big Hero 6. 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.

Step 12: Draw two small circles right on top of the horizontal construction line and shade them in for the eyes. Baymax's eyes should be set wide apart and almost touch the inner edge of the initial circle for the head. Use all of the initial lines as guides for placement as you draw.

Step 13: Darken the small section between the eyes using a thicker line. Also darken the outer oval to create the shape of Baymax's head.


Draw Baymax Big Hero 14

Step 14: Follow the basic path of the guides as you darken the outer lines under the head to create the shape of Baymax's body. Add a circle on the upper right side of the body with a line across it to indicate the port where his personality chip goes.


Draw Baymax Big Hero 15

Step 15: Darken the lines on the left side as you follow the guides to create the arm by his side. Draw Baymax's thumb and other digits. Because of the angle, most of the digits will be behind the index finger, so don't worry too much about drawing those.


Draw Baymax Big Hero 16

Step 16: Now use the shapes on the right as a guide to draw Baymax's waving hand. Darken the outer lines as you follow the guides. Add the individual fingers and thumb by using the arc at the top as a guide.

Step 17: Darken the U shaped lines under the body as guides for Baymax's legs.


Draw Baymax Big Hero 18

Step 18: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Baymax. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.


Draw Baymax Big Hero 19

Step 19: For a more finished, inked look, carefully draw over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of Big Hero 6's Baymax! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Baymax drawing.

Final Step: For a completely finished Baymax drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Baymax is all white, so if you'd like, you can just skip this step entirely. You can add some light gray on the side of his body to give the shapes more dimension and volume. He also has some patches on his arms and legs that can be created with light gray too. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Baymax, the robot from Walt Disney's Big Hero 6.
