Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Charizard
Begin to detail the face by drawing a vertical curved line in the center of the circle, and two more curved lines on the right of the circle.
Draw the neck. Draw two curved lines extending from the bottom of the head, then connect these at the bottom using a shorter curved line.
Sketch in the arms and legs. The left arm consists of two curved lines extending from the body. The right arm is drawn using four curved lines that intersect the body and neck. For the lower legs, draw each using two curved lines.
Draw three claws on each foot. To draw a claw, extend two curved lines from the foot. The lines will meet in a point. Connect the lines on the other end using a short, curved line. Each claw will resemble a curved triangle with a rounded base.
Draw three claws on each hand. Begin each claw by drawing a curved line that begins on the outside of the hand circle, curves outward, and ends within the circle. Then, draw a second, shorter curved line from the midpoint of the first, ending within the circle. Finally, connect the two line ends with a short, curved line. Also, draw a curved line through the middle of the hand to add detail.
Draw the tail by extending a curved line from the leg and from the foot, meeting in a point. Finish the tail by adding another curved line between the body and the foot.
Draw the wings. For each wing, extend a wavy line up from the shoulders, then curve it outwards and down. Draw a similar wavy line beneath the first. Repeat on the opposite side. Draw the eye using two curved lines. For the nose, draw two short, curved lines at the tip of the snout, and draw a longer wavy line above the left nostril. Draw a triangular tooth at the edge of the mouth.
Draw a curved, “M” shaped line to connect each wing tip to the back. Detail the wings using two curved, vertical lines on each. Complete each eye using a curved line, a small circle, and a dot.
