Mickey Mouse is one of the most famous cartoon characters by Disney. In this guide, we will draw a classic Mickey Mouse portrait. Creating a Mickey Mouse drawing is easy as we can outline a simple Mickey Mouse picture with just a few circles and ovals.

Use a pencil and don’t draw heavy, thick lines. The strokes from the early steps will be erased before the tutorial is finished.

You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
