Welcome to our step-by-step drawing tutorial designed to help you master the art of sketching Pokémon characters. Today, we will be focusing on Steelix, a Steel/Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II known for its serpentine physique and steel-gray coloring. Let’s dive in!
Understanding Steelix’s Appearance and Key Drawing Focus Points
Before diving into the sketching process, it’s important to get a grasp of Steelix’s unique characteristics. Steelix, much like Onix, is a long, serpentine Pokémon. It features a silvery-gray body segmented into rocky sections, with large blunt spikes jutting out from a few segments. The head of Steelix is particularly prominent, featuring large square-shaped teeth and intense red eyes.
- Body: Silvery-gray and serpentine, segmented into rocky sections
- Spikes: Blunt and gray, protruding from three body segments
- Head: Large, with prominent square-shaped teeth
- Eyes: Intense red color
Steelix shares some unique traits with other Pokémon such as Onix, Gyarados, and Rayquaza, which are known for their elongated, serpentine forms. So, if you’re interested in drawing more than one character, practicing with Steelix can certainly give you a head start.
About the Steelix Drawing Guide
Our drawing guide features a color-coded system designed to guide you through each step of the drawing process. Here’s what each color signifies:
- Red Color: The current step you should be focusing on
- Black Color: The lines you have previously drawn
- Grey Color: The basic proportion sketch
This guide consists of 12 steps, with the initial two steps focused on creating a basic sketch using light pencil strokes. Towards the end of the process, you have the option to ink your sketch. After the ink dries, gently erase the pencil sketch for a clean final drawing. The last step offers a colored reference to aid you in bringing Steelix to life.
