How to Draw Pinocchio
Well I am back with some more tutorials today and I thought that I would show you how to draw Pinocchio. As you know Pinocchio is about a young wooden boy that comes to life because of a wish that Mr. Geppetto placed one starry night. Mr. Geppetto is an older man that works as a woodworker. He makes wooden clocks, puppets, and anything else that can be made form wood. I love Pinocchio because he is so sweet, innocent, and funny. He is paired up with his conscience and friend Jiminy Cricket. Pinocchio absolutely loves his father Geppetto and he only wants to make him proud. This character that I will be showing you how to draw is from the animation minds at Disney. They made the little wooden boy so cute and innocent looking, they did a real good job. Did you know that the animated movie Pinocchio was their second released American animated feature film after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? Anyways, what young Pinocchio must do is prove to the blue fairy that he is able to be brave, truthful, and unselfish in order to become a real boy. Even though he tries very hard to do as he is told, his innocence gets him in trouble even when he doesn't know that he is doing wrong. He first gets steered down the wrong path when he is approached by a sly fox named J. Worthington or Honest John. He parades around the streets and alleys trying to find his next dollar and he see's a butt load of cash with Pinocchio. He cons Pinoc into following him to see a fella named Stromboli who runs a mobile stage show with puppeteers that move around the wooden stars. Pinocchio is the main attraction because he is a stringless puppet that could make the overweight Italian puppet maker some serious dollars. He eventually gets saved by Jiminy when the blue fairy comes and lets him out of the cage. The two run back to Geppetto's house to let him know that he is home but unfortunately he is not there. You see, Geppetto got so worried about his little boy that he went to go look for him. By the time he found his father he was in the stomach of a Whale named Monstro. He saves his father and finally he proves to the blue fairy that he is brave, truthful and unselfish. The young wooden boy turns into a real boy and then the Family jumps around happily. I sketched out Pinocchio first on paper and then scanned him in. You will now learn how to draw Pinocchio step by step with detailed instructions and steps. I will be back later with more drawing fun in a bit so hang in there folks.....
Okay lets start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes to form a frame for little Pinocchio. You will start by drawing a circle for his head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then add several more circle shapes for the lower portion of the face, the shoulders, the torso , the knees and then the feet and hands. After that add the limb guidelines.
You probably know what will be doing next right? Good let me just guide you threw the steps within the step. You will first draw out the lining of his pointed hat and then the shape of his eyes and mouth. You will then draw out the shape of his arms and lower legs. Next sketch in his cute little shirt tie. On the right hand you will start adding some fingers.
Now as you can see your Pinocchio is coming along nicely. You will draw out the bottom lining of his hat and then the shape of his thick parted hair. You will then add his eyebrows and the right side of his face including his small shaped ear. Add his wooden nose and then some pupils. You will then add the shape f his neck and then sketch out more of his hands and shirt sleeve as well as the shorts and bottom legs and knee.
Okay well guess what? You have made it your fourth step and that means you are almost done. What you will do now is draw out the rest of the hat and then color in his pupils. You will next draw out more of his bow and then his shirt which is the left sleeve and collar. Make the rest of his fingers on the left hand and then draw out the rest of the shape to his shorts and wooden legs. Detail his cute shoes and then move to the next step.
Well here you are at your last drawing step and what you will do is start adding the last of your detailing lines. You will first add the feather in his hat and then finish drawing his bow. Detail the inside of his ear and then add a small tongue. Make a vest line and then detail the top of his gloved hands. Detail his legs and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes to finish this step off.
Here he is all dressed up and ready to go. I hope you liked this tutorial on how to draw Pinocchio step by step. All you have to do is color him in and you are done. I will be back later guys with more drawing fun so be patient and stick around.
