How to Draw Celestia, Celestia, My Little Pony

Artist: Dawn / August 20, 2011

Step 1.

You will be drawing Celestia from a side profile which is going to be two shapes that are separate from each other. Start by making a shape for the head, and then draw out the body.

Step 2.

Instead of connecting the body right away, You will first focus on getting her face drawn. Start by sketching out the big tear drop shape of her eye like so, and then draw in a thick, dark top eyelid line with lashes. Next, draw the first line for he   

Step 3.

Draw in her ear, and then draw out the long, narrow unicorn horn. Add the stripes to the horn, and then draw out the eyeball. Draw the nose hole, and then sketch in her crown as well as some of her mane which curls on her cheek.

Step 4.

Okay guys, you are going to have even more fun because now we will be tackling the actual long flowing mane. Draw out a big cloud like shape that points at the end. Draw the neck, and then draw out the crest that she wears around her neck, and then d   

Step 5.

I find it easier to draw out her beautiful wings before drawing the rest of her body. Begin sketching out two wings with the front one being full bodied. Sketch in the feathers on the inside of her wings like so, and make sure that you add some defin   

Step 6.

Now we will start working on the body by drawing out the long legs and then round off the feet like so and widen the shape of her legs the further you go down. Lastly for this step, draw in the jewel on her crest and then move to step seven.

Step 7.

Draw in the back end of Celestia, and then draw out her hind legs which are standing very strong, sturdy and bold. Once the legs are drawn, you can move to step eight.

Step 8.

Okay guys, now you can draw out the extremely long tail and when you make the tail, be sure to add that wavy lining to both sides. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one, and then you're done.

Step 9.

Now that your drawing is all cleaned up, you can draw in the markings on the hooves, and the sunburst on the hip.

Step 10.

Here is the finished line art when you are all done. Now you can have even more fun coloring in her mane and tail using the shades of the rainbow.

Description: Here she is the pony that a lot of members and visitors have requested from my Youtube channel, and from Dragoart. This nest lesson will finally show you "how to draw Celestia", step by step. She normally goes by Princess Celestia, but to keep things simple, we will just refer to her by her first name. Now Celestia is a unicorn that has a pair of wings. She is all white in color and she also bears a cutie mark in the form of a sun. Her long mane and tail is made up of a rainbow instead of actual horse hair. Princess Celestia also helps her sister Princess Luna rule over Equestria. If you remember correctly, Luna is Twilight Sparkle’s mentor which means Twilight Sparkle is Luna’s student. Even though Luna is a mentor to TS, Celestia also adds some important input in the form of advice and aid. One of the things that I love about this character is the complete style of her design. I love the slender build of Celstia, and I also love how she has a rainbow of colors for her long flowing tail and mane. I truly had so much fun as I recreated one of My Little Pony’s important figures, and if I had fun, I know you too will enjoy drawing Princess Celestia as well. I have to go now guys but I will return later with some other cool stuff for you to do. Thanks for joining me today, and I hope your day was filled with color and vision.
