How to Draw Wall-E





Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Disney/Pixar's Wall-E. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!



Intro: To draw Wall-E, start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.


Draw Wall-E Step 1

Step 1: Start by drawing a cube or box in the middle of the page. You can start with a square and extend the corners toward the back thus creating a cube. This will be a basic guide for Wall-E’s body.


Draw Wall-E Step 2

Step 2: On either side of the body, near the bottom, draw two thick triangle blocks. These will be guides for the track that Wall-E uses to roll around on. Make sure to draw the shapes parallel and make them align with each other at the front, otherwise the tracks will appear uneven.


Draw Wall-E Step 3

Step 3: Above the body, draw the guides for Wall-E's eyes. They are made up of two half circles that are a bit tilted to the left. Then extend the sides of the circles toward the back to make them thicker and three-dimensional.


Draw Wall-E Step 4

Step 4: Draw an angled line below Wall-E's eyes as a guide for the neck. On the sides of the body, draw two straight lines for the arms. At the end of each arm draw a square/rectangle for Wall-E's hands.


Draw Wall-E Step 5

Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch of Wall-E! You have the basic Wall-E 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.


Draw Wall-E Step 6

Step 6: Draw a big circle inside each of the half circles that make up Wall-E's eyes. Draw another circle inside each of those circles for the pupil. Shade in the inner circle except for another small circle on the upper right side that represents glare.


Draw Wall-E Step 7

Step 7: Use the guide lines to help you give Wall-E's eyes a more round shape without so many angles and sharp corners. They kind of look like binoculars. Draw a small half circle in between them to connect the eyes.

Step 8: Below the eyes draw Wall-E's neck using the initial line as a guide. Draw a small cylinder shape as a hinge where Wall-E's neck bends, then use a series of lines above and below the hinge to make the neck thicker.


Draw Wall-E Step 9

Step 9: Draw the right hand by using the initial square as a guide. The hand consists of two rectangles that make up Wall-E's flat fingers on a hinge.


Draw Wall-E Step 10

Step 10: Use the line as a guide to draw the rest of Wall-E's arm. Draw a rectangle extending back toward the body. Draw the sides of the arm more or less parallel to the sides of Wall-E's body. Inside the arm draw a few stripes for Wall-E’s design.


Draw Wall-E Step 11

Step 11: Wall-E’s track can be a little tricky, so the instructions for how to draw it are split up into two steps. First use the initial shapes as a guide to draw the basic outline for the track. Make the track more round and lose the sharp corners and angles.


Draw Wall-E Step 12

Step 12: Draw small horizontal lines that surround the track to make it bumpier and more track-like. Finish up Wall-E's track by drawing a few circles of different sizes inside the shape to represent the mechanical gears that drive him.


Draw Wall-E Step 13

Step 13: Darken the shape that makes up Wall-E's body. Draw a square at the base of his neck using a series of lines to create an opening.


Draw Wall-E Step 14

Step 14: On the front of Wall-E's body draw a panel using squares and rectangles of different sizes to represent buttons and overall extra detail.


Draw Wall-E Step 15

Step 15: Draw the left had using the initial square shape as a guide. Wall-E's hand consists of three rectangles that make up his flat fingers on a small rectangle for the hinge.


Draw Wall-E Step 16

Step 16: Draw a cylinder that connects Wall-E's hand to his arm. The arm is basically one long rectangle, but most of it is hidden behind the body.


Draw Wall-E Step 17

Step 17: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of a Wall-E. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look, or continue to the step below to go for a more finished look.


Draw Wall-E Step 18

Step 18: 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 erase your pencil marks. You now have a finished inked drawing of Wall-E! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Wall-E drawing.


Draw Wall-E Final Step

Final Step: For a completely finished Wall-E drawing, you have to color it. You can use anything you want: markers, color pencils or even crayons! To create his logo, write WALL and a dot in black on the lower right side of his body. Then with red draw a circle that encompasses the letter E. Wall-E is an old robot that picks up garbage, so color some splotches of brown all over his body to represent rust and dirt. It doesn’t have to be exact; just add the brown randomly. Color Wall-E's eyes, hands, tracks and the panel on his chest different shades of gray. Add some red and yellow-green on the panel for extra detail. Wall-E's body, neck and arms are yellow-orange. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Disney/Pixar's Wall-E.
