How to Draw Amy Rose
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Amy Rose from the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon series and video games. 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.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle near the bottom of the page. This will be the basic shape for Amy Rose's head. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. The vertical line should be closer to the right edge of the circle, and the horizontal line should be close to the bottom. These will be construction lines that will help you place Amy Rose's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw a long curved line across the circle as a guide for Amy Rose's eyes. Start the line on top of the horizontal construction line on the left side, then draw the line as an arc that ends at the vertical construction line and arcs up again and finally ends on the right side of the edge of the circle.
Step 4: Under the horizontal construction line and on the left side of the vertical construction line, draw a small shape as a guide for Amy Rose's mouth. The shape should be similar to the letter D on its side.
Step 5: Draw a guide for Amy Rose's ear. Draw a triangle-like shape similar to an upside-down letter V on top of the circle on the left side.
Step 6: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic shape of Amy Rose from Sonic the Hedgehog. 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 7: Darken the shape of Amy Rose's ear and make it a bit more curved. Within the shape of the ear, draw a smaller triangle. Make the sides of this small triangle bulge out a bit.
Step 8: On the top right side of the head, draw three long pointy shapes for the front part of Amy Rose's hair. The top shape starts very close to where the vertical construction line meets the top edge of the circle. The rest of the shapes should be placed below, following the basic path of the vertical construction line. The tip of the top shape points up and to the right, while the bottom shape points down and to the right.
Step 9: Use the curved line across the main circle as a guide to draw the outside of Amy Rose's eyes. Follow the path of the guide and make the line thicker. As with many other Sonic the Hedgehog characters, the eyes aren't separated in the middle and instead consist of one big opening in the head. Draw a couple of long, curved lines on either side of Amy Rose's eyes for the eyelashes.
Step 10: Inside the two arcs that make up the eyes, draw an oval for the irises. Use the construction lines as guides for placement. Inside each iris, draw a smaller oval that represents glare. In the middle of the iris, behind the glare, draw and shade in another oval that represents the pupil.
Step 11: Right on top of where the construction lines meet, draw the nose. The shape of Amy Rose's nose is similar to an upside-down triangle with bulgy sides and rounded top corners. Shade in the inside except for a tiny circle to represent glare.
Step 12: Use the shape on the lower, left side of the head as a guide to draw Amy Rose's mouth. Follow the basic path of the shape as you darken the lines to form the outline of the mouth. Make the lines bend more. Inside the shape of the mouth, draw a curved line for the tongue inside.
Step 13: Draw a series of long curved lines on the left side of the main circle for Amy Rose's hair. The hair is made up of long curved shapes that come to a point at the bottom. The shape closest to Amy Rose's eye should be the biggest. The second shape should be smaller, and the last shape is basically a line that goes up to the ear.
Step 14: Use the horizontal construction line and the bottom edge of the circle as guides to draw the bottom portion of Amy Rose's face or the muzzle. The top line should curve over the nose, while the bottom line should basically follow the path of the bottom edge of the main circle.
Step 15: Draw a couple of lines behind the ear that come to a point on the left side to make up the hairband on Amy Rose's head. Draw another curved line above that for the top part of the head. On the right side of the head, draw a couple more lines that come to a point at the bottom for the the right side of Amy Rose's hair.
Step 16: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Amy Rose from Sonic the Hedgehog. 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.
Step 17: 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 Amy Rose! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Amy Rose drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Amy Rose drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color the main part of Amy Rose's head and her tongue pink. The headband is light pink, and the inside of her mouth is brown. Her eyes are green, and the lower part of her head is peach, but if you don't have peach, improvise and use yellow-orange or light brown. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Amy Rose from the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon series and video games.
