How to Draw Tribal Pikachu

Artist: Dawn / March 21, 2014

Step 1.

Start by drawing Pikachu's head and face shape. Notice the lining has dashes. This is the tribal pattern you will be drawing.

Step 2.

You will just draw the circles for Pikachu's eyes, then color them in.

Step 3.

Next, add the nose and then draw in the mouth. You will need to color inside of Pikachu's mouth.

Step 4.

Add the bottom lip, then color in the circles on his cheeks but make sure they go to the edge of the face lining.

Step 5.

Now we are going to have some tribal fun. Draw in Pikachu's ears in a tribal fashion by making the tips thicker, darker and very pointy. The lining inside of the ears also helps make it more "tribal". Also notice how the base of the ears don't touch    

Step 6.

Make an oblong swirl to form his arm and hand like so. I think most of you will agree that this is very tribal like.

Step 7.

You will draw in his other arm and hand the same way you did the left one previously.

Step 8.

We will now get started with the body and thighs. Two simple lines should do it.

Step 9.

Now draw the base of Pikachu's body which is the butt, legs and feet. See how it's drawn in a tribal pattern or style.

Step 10.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the tail, and then erase the mistakes if you made any.

Step 11.

When all is said and done your drawing comes out looking like the one you see here. Now you can have fun coloring him in.

Description: There are three more tribal characters on the way and if you remember I explained why these lessons are called 'tribal'. I went ahead and added a few more characteristics to the tribal lining when making this tut on "how to draw tribal Pikachu". There are swirls incorporated within the design of Pikachu in his tribal form making him seem more like a tradition tribal drawing. I love the way he came out. In fact I love it so much, this may just be my favorite drawing on Pikachu I have done yet. Even though there are many steps, the lesson in general is pretty simple. So go ahead and have fun drawing a tribal version of Pikachu. I will be back so don't go anywhere.
