Step 1.

For those of you that always wondered what combination Ursula is, she is an octopus person, or half octopus half human. You will start this first step drawing out a small circle for the head, and then add the facial guidelines. Next, draw the wire fr   

Step 2.

Next, sketch out the shape of her large face. In this step, the chin and jawline is going to be drawn in first. Next, draw the arched eyebrows, and nose.

Step 3.

You can continue to draw out the rest of the head, and then draw out her floating hairstyle which is short in the back and on the sides, but long on top. Next, draw out her deadly grin including the lips and all, and then draw the mole on her face, a   

Step 4.

Once you draw in her teeth, you can then sketch more of her body starting with her chest, and big belly line. Once that is done you have to add some detailing under her arm, and then draw the lining for her first octopus leg or tentacles.

Step 5.

When you are done with this step, your drawing of Ursula should come out looking like the one you see here. All you have to do to make this possible, is draw out the incredible outline of her squiggly body which is very girthy.

Description: In 1989 a movie was released from the Disney collection that would forever leave a lasting impression on the hearts and minds of adults and children around the world. As you look at the tutorial image, you are thinking one of two things, either you know who this character is, or your trying to remember who this character is. If you're thinking that maybe she is from a movie called “The Little Mermaid”, you're actually right. This lesson is going to show you "how to draw Ursula", step by step. If you're familiar with the film, you should know that Ursula is the main antagonist. You can also see here in some of the Kingdom Hearts video games too, which is semi-cool. Ursula's whole objective through out the movie, is to seek revenge on King Triton for outcasting her away from, what is thought to be, Atlantis. She gets her revenge when she uses Ariel's, King Trtiton's daughter, curious desires to seek out and fall in love with Prince Eric, a human from the world above. She cuts a deal with Ariel to turn her into a human by giving her a pair of legs. Once she tricks Triton into taking over Ariel's contract, she turns the king into a collapsed weeping prisoner and adopts the crown and powerful trident to take over the ocean. Her plan seems to be working out great, that is until Eric comes to the rescue and stabs Ursula in the stomach with a wrecked ship from the bottom of the sea. I had fun drawing her out, although I do have to say that she is not amongst one of my favorite characters. I actually like her two moray eels, Flotsam and Jetsam better than I like her. Anyway, that doesn't matter because what's important is that you can finally learn "how to draw Ursula, step by step". I like having tutorials on on all major characters from either movies, cartoon series, and anime/manga series too. I will be back with one lesson, and this time it will be some blood included. Have fun guys, and have a happy drawing day.
