How to Draw Chibi Princess Peach

Step 1.

Like with all drawings containing a figure, you want to start with a wire frame. A wire frame is a great tool to use; creating ease for poses and positioning of the character. Since we are working with chibi, the frame is extremely simple. Notice how   

Step 2.

Now let's add some meat to them bones. In this step you want to define the body shape and the head shape that you will be working with. Once again, since we're doing a chibi, you don't have to worry about a lot of detail in the hands and the feet.

Step 3.

Now that we have some muscles on our frame, we can start sketching out the details that will make this base into princess peach. We'll start with the head. A tip to keeping to the character is try to make the face look as it would if their origin   

Step 4.
