Here in this Pokemon-focused lesson, let's learn how to draw Clefairy, a mystical creature commonly found on "Mt. Moon" - and one that evolves from a much smaller likeness of the character...

The "cleffa".

Based on a simple circle/oval - this is actually a pretty easy lesson, in that you've got lots of room to focus on creativity and details.

Notice, I did change some things in this version of the character (hands, feet, wing) - just remember though, it's the *likeness* that we're aiming for here...

Not perfection and exactness! :-)


How to Draw Clefairy from Pokemon

Getting right down to it - first up, let's take a look at just what sort of physical form attributes we can point out before-hand with our character, ones that will really help to solidify the shape of Clefairy in the beginning.

Here's how to draw Clefairy's shape - or at least a way that you can think about it, if you like...

How to draw Clefairy from Pokemon - simple framework drawing

Pretty simple, right?

For sure, an oval - some triangles... a few more lines...

And yes - diving right into the drawing itself now, go ahead and sketch out a simple Clefairy-like face, along with the trademark "swirl" on the top of its head - sort of like this...

Haha, nice and cute! Just what we wanted.

Moving either side of the swirl now - here's how to draw Clefairy's body - beginning with the pointy triangular ears, and followed up by some tiny little arms.

Note - I did simplify the "claws" to rounded ends here. I did this to make it even easier for you. Of course, add the claws, and any other details you see fit.

Have fun with it! :-)

Pretty straight forward now - next, go ahead and sketch in the circular body of Clefairy - 5 curved lines, or yes - another way you could look at it/implement it...

A circle-shape made in Photoshop, and then cut out/erased in those places, where it makes sense to do so. Either way works!

Here's how it turned out...

OK, so now that we're almost done - please go ahead and sketch in some of the last defining details of our character - those like lines on the ears, the legs, the tail, and yes - even a little fairy wing...

Few more adjustments - and here's what Clefairy looks like - just lines.

Oh, and I actually made a tiny error where the tail meets the wing. The wing should (or could) overlap the tail a little bit *instead* of the other way around.

No big deal, it's really subtle. But do make the adjustment, if you like...

So what's next? Er, what's last!

Color of course - and yes, with a simple pinkish palette - it's not too difficult at all.

Here's how it looks...
