Step 1

OK lets start off with the main parts. Basically Kirby consists of circles. He is completely MADE of circles. Except for his mouth.

Lets draw the circles we need. 1 main circle, 2 small circles on either side of his body, and bigger circles for feet. I suggest using a light color first.


Step 2

Once you have done that, outline him with a darker color. Start adding his oval eyes, triangular mouth and blush.

For his feet, slice it in half, and see what happens



Step 3

Ok, so now we have the main idea of what he looks like! Now its time to outline him, and clean him up.


Step 4

Alright its time to color, and basically, we all know kirby is pink! But it can be any color you like. But for this tutorial I will use his basic colors.

Body is pink, feet is reddish-pink, blush is of a darker pink from his pink body, his eyes compose of black and blue and his mouth is pink for the tongue and darker pink for the inside of the mouth.

Lets do flat colors


Step 5

Ok! Now its time to add some more detail~

Like the eyes for example, they look dead right? Add some white highlights to his eyes~ And maybe soften the blue in his eyes.

For his shadows, depending on the bg which is white, make the main colors a bit darker.

Experiment with the lighting, so you know where the shadows go.




Step 6

Look at that! Its much more detailed, don't you agree? Ok, next step, lets make the shades smoother :D. You may either airbrush, but I prefer using water color.

And add some lightings to him!

Lets see the result.


Step 7

And what I like to do which you all don't need to do is, to add small circular highlights on some parts of his body, to make him look more bubbley.

Look at him all cute and bubbley >W<


Step 8

OK THAT'S ALL FOLKS~ I hope you enjoyed and if you want a tut made by me, please contact me either here or DA, Polar-Angie13 :3
