How to Draw Rarity
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Rarity from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. A new cartoon 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 circle on the top right side of the paper. It doesn't need to be perfect. It's just a basic shape for Rarity's head. Leave enough room at the bottom for the body.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines, one horizontal and one vertical. The vertical line should be close to the right side of the circle, and the horizontal line should be close to the bottom. Bend the lines so they contour to the shape of the sphere. These are construction lines that will help you place Rarity's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two ovals as guides for Rarity's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line, on either side of the vertical construction line. The oval on the right side should be smaller because of the perspective.
Step 4: On top of the head, draw two triangle-like shapes. The shape on the left should be a bit bigger, and its sides should bulge out. This will be a guide for Rarity's ear. The shape on the right should be thinner and shouldn't bulge out as much. This will be a guide for her horn.
Step 5: Below her head, draw a bigger oval lying on its side. This will be a guide for Rarity's torso. Pay attention to the size of this oval in relation to the first circle. Don't draw the oval too far down, otherwise Rarity's neck will be too long.
