The Narrated step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw a big oval as a guide for Piplup's head. First make four marks to determine the oval's height and width. Make sure that the marks for the oval's width are farther apart than the marks for the oval's length. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 2: Inside the oval, draw two intersecting lines. These are construction guides that will help you place Piplup's facial features later on. Curve the lines so that they contour to the shape of the oval. The vertical line should be to the left of center and the horizontal line should be close to the bottom edge of the oval.
Step 3: Under the head, draw a circular shape for Piplup's body. Pay attention to how small this shape is in relation to the head. The top part of the this shape will be hidden behind the head.
Step 4: On the sides of the body, draw two long, thin shapes as guides for Piplup's arms. The base of the arms should be wide and the tips should be thin and pointy like leaves. The arm on the right should be next to the head. Under the body, draw a couple of curved lines for the feet. The feet should be very small in relation to the rest of the body.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing of the Pokemon Piplup.
Step 5: On top of the horizontal construction guide, draw two ovals for Piplup's eyes. Use the vertical line as a guide to help you determine the space between the eyes. The eye on the left should be smaller because the head is slightly turned. Inside the eyes, near the top, draw small circles for highlights. In the middle of the eyes draw smaller ovals and shade them in for the pupils. Don't overlap the highlight circles as you shade the pupils.
Step 6: Draw an arc-like shape where the construction lines intersect for Piplup's beak. Close-off the arc at the bottom and add an extra line underneath for the bottom section of the beak. The beak should be close to the eye on the left.
