How To Draw A Raichu

Hello Everyone!
Today I will show you how to draw one of my favorite Pokemon! Get ready to learn how to draw a cute Raichu!

You are more than welcome to use your own style, twists, and alterations. I actually encourage you to try out different things too!

Lets get started!

 First, we are going to start by sketching out a circle and an oval. These will be the basic shapes for the head and the body.

Then, we are going to start sketching out the arms and legs. Draw 2 large circles like so on the bottom. Also, draw 2 ovals under the head for the arms.

Next, we will add 2 long ovals for the Raichu’s paws.

Great! Now clean up the sketch and add a “t” shape across the head so you can begin to draw the face. Add 2 tear drop shapes on top of the head for the ears.

 Next, sketch a long curvy line for the tail. Then you can place a circle on the middle of the “t” shape for the nose. Also, start to carve out crescent shapes out of the previously drawn tear drops.

Almost there! For the ear that is facing us copy the shape of the ear and add a swirl to create the inner ear. At this step you can begin to draw the face by adding the cheeks and shape out the feet.

 After the eyes and mouth are added, go back and finish the tail by adding a lightning bolt to the end.

Feel free to change up the expression to make him look fierce, silly, or anything else! 

Add 2 smaller circles for the pupils and add the tongue. Clean up the sketch and add small details if you would like.

The sketch is now complete! Next, we will clean up the sketch to make the drawing look crisp and clean You can use an eraser, pen, or even drawing tablet.

Time to color Raichu however you like.
Then you are finished!
