How to draw Pokemon – Let’s get started!
All Pokemon are easy to draw once you know how to break down their body shapes into simpler forms. For Bulbasaur, we will start by drawing a circular head (red) and an elongated body (green). Draw the body slightly behind the head.
Now we’ll add a few more basic shapes to these two: a big circle at the back of his body (the bulb) and four small ovals to represent the position of the legs (blue).
At this stage, the only important thing is to keep the proportions right and try to figure out which parts of the body cover another.
How to draw Pokemon – Overall shapes
Now we have drawn enough construction lines to put together the silhouette of Bulbasaur. Remove the construction lines as soon as you have done and shape the bulb at the back.
When it comes to the eyes it is important to draw them correctly to achieve the right effect. Divide the head in quarters by drawing a vertical and horizontal line.
Draw now a parallel horizontal line above the first. Overall the head should be divided into three horizontal bands of approximately equal thickness. The position of the eye center using two simple vertical lines as in the drawing below.
The eyes of Bubasaur have this triangular shape, flat at the base and closing at the top. Irises and pupils are also huge and fit snuggly in the triangle. Obviously, the further away eye looks more compressed than the eye closest to the viewer.
How to draw Pokemon – Complete the drawing
Once the eyes are positioned correctly the other elements of the face are really easy to position and fall into place almost automatically. I am referring to the nostrils, mouth, and ears.
Do not think is time to start working on the detail of this drawing? I think so! Add the small claws and teeth. Oh and do not forget the tongue. Delete construction lines where necessary you do not want to see the lines of the legs through the claws.
The last touches to the drawing are the characteristic pattern of Bulbasaur or the skin texture made of big and non-uniform squares.
I have also added a few lines in the bulb and defined a bit better the overall look of my drawing. Now the only thing left to do is to color it!
