How to Draw My Neighbor Totoro

Artist: Dawn / December 5, 2013

Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head then sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Next, draw out the outlined shape for his body starting with the pointed ears, then sides of the face then the arms. Totoro is a wide character.

Step 3.

Sketch out the rest of the body which is just the legs and wide feet and toes.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw the circle eyes, color in the pupils, then draw the nose and small mouth dot.

Step 5.

Make the large circle marking on the belly, then you can proceed.

Step 6.

Draw the small boomerang shapes on the upper parts of the torso, then you can move to step seven to finish things off.

Step 7.

Add the claws on the hands, then make the marks on the toes to create those nails too. Erase all the mistakes if you made any at all.

Step 8.

The line art comes out looking like the drawing you see here. Now you can color in Totoro and show folks what you have created.
