Squirtle, the cute, blue water Pokemon, is one of the most popular Pokemon species among the eight-hundred-and-one making up the franchise. Affectionately called the Tiny Turtle, Squirtle’s look is inspired from a turtle. Here, you will learn to draw a neat picture of this beloved Pokemon in the following step-by-step instructions.
Step 1: First, draw a circle for the head, followed by a larger, partial oval shape for the body.
Step 2: Make two curved lines within the circle (to guide you while drawing the facial features), and another vertical curve within the body.
Step 3: Next, draw single line guides for the hands, legs and tail.
Step 4: Make a small curve on the right side of the head as shown in the picture.
Step 5: Using the facial guidelines, draw the eyes and a tiny nose.
Step 6: Draw the details of the eyeballs.
Step 7: Now, it is time to draw a large crescent mouth
Step 8: Use the guide to draw the front side of his body.
Step 9: Draw the stubby left arm with two fingers as shown in picture 9.
Step 10: In the same manner, draw the left leg, with two visible tows on his small foot.
Step 11: Draw an inverted ‘U’ with three blunt points on its low end for the right leg and toes.
Step 12: Similarly, using the guide, draw the right arm and fingers.
Step 13: Use the single line drawn within the body (in step 2) to draw two curved lines for the outline of his shell.
Step 14: Add some details to the hind-shell as shown in the picture.
Step 15: Time to bring his tail in shape. Check the spiral line replacing the guide drawn in step 3.
Step 16: Draw a small line from the body, joining it to the spiral line to complete the tail. Also, start adding the details to his front-shell.
Step 17: Complete the front-shell with a honeycomb-like pattern
Step 18: Color the sketch with the right shades of blue, yellow, and brown. Don’t forget to keep the base of the shell white and use some red for the tongue.
Now, when you see Squirtle on TV next time, his form and features will no longer be intimidating to you, as you would have mastered the drawing. Now, it may not turn out as accurate as you would want it to be in your first try. But, practice makes you perfect!
