Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Hatchimal
Draw a circle at the centre of the page.
Draw a curve intersecting the lower half of the circle.
Draw a large U-shape below the curving line.
Draw an oval next to the U-shape.
Draw another U-shape below the smaller oval.
Draw a jagged line along the sides of the oval. This line will be the edge of the cracked hatchimal egg. It doesn’t need to look exactly same as in the tutorial illustration.
Erase the oval, so that only the jagged line is left.
Sketch another set of jagged lines around the top of the big U-shape.
Erase the top of the U-shape. Now you have two hatchimal egg halves with jagged edges.
Outline a heart-shape for the hatchimal’s face.
Draw a soft triangle for the beak.
Add an arc for the bottom of the beak.
Add two tilted ovals for the eyes.
Draw two small ovals in the corners of the eyes.
Draw big pupils inside the eyes.
Sketch a little tuft of hair on top of the hatchimal’s head.
Add a few lines for the details around the eyes and forehead.
Sketch a bunch of cracked egg pieces.
Add dots to the egg shell.
Color your hatchimal drawing.
