Since the first appearance in 1928 Mickey has changed very much. Of course, now he has become more detailed and traced. Now he has shadows, reflections, improved animations and movements became more realistic and natural. So, let’s start the tutorial and learn how to draw Mickey Mouse!
Let’s start by drawing the usual circle, it should be drawn at the top of the page. It will be the guide for the head of Mickey Mouse. Note, that at the first steps you should not press down too hard on a pencil.
At this step, we sketch out the guidelines of facial symmetry. First draw the vertical line, which will help us to find the centre of the face. Then draw the horizontal line, which will help us to draw eyes. Note, that they should cross at right angles. Note that line the eye is slightly of the lower conditional center of the head. Draw two small circles on the upper part of the head, and in the result you should get a very recognizable eared silhouette of Mickey Mouse.
This step seems too hard, but it isn’t so. At first draw the torso of Mickey Mouse – it looks like a thin (much thinner than the head) raindrop, slightly tapered at the bottom. Then draw a pair of elongated cylinders at the top of the torso, right under the head. Then sketch out the unproportionally big palms. Then draw two thin cylinders in the lower part of the torso.Then draw two thin cylinders in the lower part of the torso. It will be the guides for the legs. Then, In the bottom of the legs draw feet in the form of the curved ovals (note, that feet should be very similar to beans).
In this step of tutorial about how to draw Mickey Mouse, we draw the face. Using the guidelines from the second step draw facial features. At first, using ovals draw the eyes. They should be placed at the sides of the verticals facial line, right above the horizontal line. Then using a flattened oval draw a nose, which should be located directlyunder the line of the eye. Then using curved lines draw the smile. And at the end of this step, draw the cheeks, chin and area around the eyes in the form of the letter “M”.
Erase all unnecessary lines from the face of Mickey Mouse, draw a tongue and a line under the eyes. At this step we will finish with the Mickey Mous face. Darken all the lines of the head and move to the next step.
At this step of the tutorial about how to draw Mickey Mouse we will add some details. First sketch out fingers. Then, using two curved lines draw a tail. Using curved lines draw the outlines of shorts. Sketch out two buttons in form of the ovals and move to the next step.
So, we got to the last step of the tutorial about how to draw Mickey Mouse. At first we need to erase all unnecessary guidelines from Mickey and darken the lines.
