To draw Pearl from Steven Universe, follow step-by-step drawings below. The new lines in each step are shown in red, and each step is explained in the text below the photo, so you'll know exactly what to draw in each step.
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: Draw a small circle at the top of the page as a guide for Pearl's head. First make four marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a bottle cap. Under the circle, draw a U-shaped line as a guide for the lower part of the head and jaw. Don't draw this line too low or Pearl's face will be too long.
Step 2: Inside the head, draw two intersecting lines as guides to help you place Pearl's facial features later. Pay attention to the placement of these lines. Curve the lines so that they contour to the head. Under the head, draw two short lines as guides for the neck.
Step 3: Under the head, draw a long rectangle as a guide for Pearl's torso. Notice how thin the rectangle is. The length should be a bit longer than the entire head.
Step 4: On the right side of the body, draw a long, angled line as a guide for Pearl's first arm. The line should be similar to a greater-than sign (>). On the bottom tip of the line, draw a small pentagon as a guide for the hand.
Step 5: On the left side of the body, draw another long, angled line as a guide for Pearl's other arm. This line should be less angled than the line for the arm on the right. At the bottom of this line, draw a small diamond-like shape as a guide for the hand.
Step 6: Under the torso, draw two long vertical lines as guides for Pearl's legs. Pearl is pretty tall (not as tall as Garnet) so don't make these lines to short. The length of the lines should be about as long as the torso and half of the head. The line on the left should be straight, while the line on the right should slope a little bit. Add a shorter line at the bottom of each line as a guide for the feet.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing of Pearl from Steven Universe.
Step 7: Inside the head, on the left side, draw a short angled line for Pearl's nose. Use the construction lines as guides to help you place the head and determine the size of the nose. At the top of the head, where the vertical line is, draw a small circle for Pearl's gem.
Step 8: Above the nose, draw two ovals for Pearl's eyes. Place the eyes on either side of the vertical construction line and on top of the horizontal line. The bottom edge of the eye on the left will be behind the nose.
Step 9: Darken the left side of the initial guides to create the shape of Pearl's head. Darken the lines under the head for the neck. Along the inner edge of the guides for the head, draw a series of curved lines for the first part of the hair. The lines at the top should be short, while the line at the bottom should be longer and curved.
Step 10: To the right of the head, draw an angled line as a guide for the rest of Pearl's hair. This line should be similar to a greater-than sign (>). Pay attention to how far to the right this line goes. On the tip of the shape, split the line to emphasize the hair clump.
Step 11: Draw a small circle inside each eye for Pearl's pupils. Under the nose, draw a small, curved shape for the mouth. Inside the mouth, draw three short lines for the teeth. On the left side of the head, draw two short, spike-like shapes for the other side of the hair.
Step 12: Use the angled line on the right side of the torso as a guide to draw Pearl's first arm. Darken the guide at the top to create the top edge of the arm. Then make the shape thicker with a parallel line. Draw the bottom of the arm around the path of the guide. At the bottom draw the hand inside the pentagon. On the left side, draw a series of short strokes for the fingers.
Step 13: Use the guide on the left as a guide to draw Pearl's other arm the same way. Darken the top of the guide and then draw the shape of the rest of the arm around the guide. Draw the hand inside the diamond shape at the bottom. Draw a series of short lines along the lower edge for the fingers.
Step 14: Use the rectangle in the middle as a guide to draw Pearl's torso. Darken the sides of the guide but make the lines curve in more. Near the shoulders, draw two curved lines for the shirt. Add a shorter line on the neck. Between the hands, draw two curved lines for the bottom of the shirt.
Step 15: Use the line on the lower, right side as a guide to draw Pearl's first leg. Draw the shape of the leg around the guide. Keep the edges of the shape close to the guide so that the leg is skinny. Make the lines wavy to indicate structure. Curve the bottom for the foot. Inside the shape draw three line: one for the short, one for the socks and one for the shoe.
Step 16: Use the line on the left as a guide to draw Pearl's other leg the same way. Draw the shape of the leg around the guide but keep the leg skinny. Use wavy lines to give the leg muscle structure. At the bottom bend the shape to the left and make it pointy for the foot. Inside the shape draw three lines for the shorts, the sock and the shoe.
Step 17: Inside the chest, draw a small star for the design on Pearl's shirt. Draw two lines across the stomach for the sash. On the left side of the body, draw a series of curved lines for the sash's bow. The bow is behind the body, so don't overlap the shape of the arm when you draw it.
Step 18: Go over the final sketch lines with a pen, marker or any other type of permanent ink. Take your time and be careful when you ink your drawing to avoid any accidents. After the ink dries, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser for a cleaner drawing of Pearl from Steven Universe.
Final Step: Color your Pearl drawing using colored pencils, markers or crayons! Use light pink or peach for the hair and socks. Color the eyes, the sash and the shoes light blue. Use blue-green for the shirt and yellow for the star on the shirt. Color the shorts yellow-orange.
That's it! You know how a finished drawing of Pearl from Steven Universe.
