How to draw Heracross Pokemon

Welcome, budding Pokémon artists! Today, we venture into the captivating realm of drawing the Bug/Fighting-type Pokémon – Heracross, a remarkable creature introduced in Generation II and known as Pinsir’s counterpart. If you’re a Pokémon enthusiast with a passion for art, or simply looking to improve your drawing skills, this step-by-step tutorial is perfect for you.

Getting to Know Heracross

Before we dive into our sketch, let’s familiarize ourselves with Heracross’ striking appearance. This large, blue, winged bipedal beetle-like Pokémon sports a pair of captivating yellow eyes and two formidable clawed arms and feet. A distinctive feature of Heracross is its T-shaped horn, standing tall on its head and flanked by two smaller antennas. Please note, the shape of Heracross’ horn varies depending on its gender.

As you embark on this artistic journey, consider also sketching other related characters such as Scizor, or Heracross’ fellow Generation II addition, Shuckle. These could add depth and complexity to your drawing, making it truly stand out.

Your Guide to Drawing Heracross

Now, let’s talk about our drawing guide. It uses a simple yet effective color-coding system to guide you through the process:

  • Red Color: Represents the current drawing step you should focus on.
  • Black Color: Showcases the lines you’ve previously drawn.
  • Grey Color: Demonstrates the basic sketch and proportions.

This guide comprises 12 clear steps, with the first 2 devoted to creating a basic sketch using light pencil strokes. As you near the end of your artistic journey, you can choose to ink your sketch. After the ink dries, gently erase the pencil sketch, and voilà! The last step serves as a coloring reference, bringing your Heracross to life.

Q: What type of pencil should I use for the basic sketch?
A: I suggest using an HB pencil for the initial sketching. It’s light enough to erase without leaving marks, yet dark enough to guide your drawing.
Q: How can I ensure accurate proportions in my drawing?
A: Using the grey lines as a guide, try to visualize the Pokémon’s body in simple shapes. This will help you understand the structure and maintain the proportions accurately.
Q: How do I prevent smudging when inking?
A: Try to work from top to bottom, and left to right (if you’re right-handed), or vice versa if you’re left-handed. This will prevent your hand from smudging the ink.
