How to Draw a Leprechaun for Kids

Artist: Dawn / November 25, 2011

Step 1.

Make two circles, one for the head and another for the small child like body. Sketch in the facial guidelines like so, and then proceed on.

Step 2.

We will start with sketching out the leprechauns hat. All you have to do is draw a bowl shape, and then draw the band around the hat, as well as a buckle, and the hat's lid.

Step 3.

All you have to do here is use the shape that you made for the head guide and incorporate the structure of the leprechaun's face. Draw the sideburns as well his ear which is like an elf's.

Step 4.

Next, draw the eyebrows which are curly because as you know leprechauns have bushy brows. Color in some jellybean shaped eyes, and then add a smile.

Step 5.

Almost done guys. Draw the loop under the chin for his tie, and then draw the jacket some more, and then draw the rounded arm that is resting on the side of his body.

Step 6.

Lastly, draw in the feet in the form of shoes, and then draw the body that is visible. Add some lining for the shoe soles and then clean up the drawing.

Step 7.

Once you have cleaned things up, you should end up with a cute drawing of a leprechaun like the one you see here. Color in the little guy and that's it.

Description: I know it’s not even Christmas yet, but I received an odd request to make a tutorial on a figure that we see all the time during the spring month of March. Today, I will take a chance and provide a tutorial on "how to draw a leprechaun for kids", step by step. The design concept is going to be pretty easy to replicate which means anyone from all types of skill levels will be able to tackle this lesson. I drew this leprechaun sitting down on a spread of grass with a background of the rainbow. You too can draw this very same background if you like how it looks in the image. You can even add a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow so your leprechaun for kids stays cute, instead of turning into a crazed maniac that goes on a rampage in search for his gold. Well, that is really all I have to say. I better let you try and tackle the task of drawing a leprechaun for kids so you have the skill down packed for when St. Patrick’s Day arrives. Adios people and enjoy all the great fun!
