Today’s tutorial is going to be how to draw Hello Kitty. If you remember, many months ago I posted a video tutorial on how to draw Hello Kitty. However since I prefer my blog to be made up mostly of my own tutorials, I thought I should redo this one now that I have had a little more time on my hands. Let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
Hello Kitty is definitely one of the easiest cartoon characters you could ever draw. She is made up nothing more than a bunch of circles, which makes the drawing process a breeze.
The first step in drawing Hello Kitty is to make a large circle, which will become her head– and a triangle right below it which will be her body. The triangle and head are roughly the same width, with the top point of the triangle starting slightly inside the circle.
On each of the bottom points of your triangle, draw a large oval that comes about halfway up the triangle. Since we are drawing Hello Kitty in a sitting position, these will be her feet.
Right below Hello Kitty’s head, where the circle touches the triangle, draw an oval that is about 1/2 the size of her feet. These ovals are going to be her arms. Make one of them point upwards, and the other one downwards.
After you have her basic body drawn, the next step is to draw Hello Kitty’s face. Start by drawing a small oval near the tip of the triangle as shown in the picture to the right. On either side of that oval, draw two more vertical ovals that will become her eyes.
*Her eyes and nose are almost exactly in line with each other. Her nose only sits slightly lower than her eyes.
At this point we will need to clean up our drawing a little bit. Erase all your unwanted guidelines, and make your lines as clear as possible.
Make Hello Kitty’s ears by drawing two slightly rounded triangles on top of her head. Each of these triangles is in line with each of her eyes.
In this step we need to draw Hello Kitty’s trademark bow tie. To make her tie, draw a circle right below, and in the middle of her left ear. On either side of this circle, make a large “C” shape, with a smaller “C” shape in each one.
At this point you are essentially done drawing Hello Kitty. The only thing left to do is to add clothes. What’s interesting about her clothes is that her entire outfit is created by only three lines. Make a “U” shape right under her head that is her collar. Then, draw a line on each wrist to form her sleeves. A few whiskers on each side of her head, and that’s it!
If your picture looks anything like the image on the left, congrats! You’ve just drawn Hello Kitty!
