Embarking on a creative journey is always exciting, and today, we’re here to guide you through the process of bringing to life one of Pokémon’s most charming characters – Togepi. This easy to follow, image-based tutorial, will not only help you enhance your sketching skills but also indulge your passion for Pokémon.
Focusing on Togepi’s Appearance
Before diving into the drawing process, it’s essential to familiarize ourselves with the character’s unique features:
- Togepi’s body is partially encased in an egg shell, with only its head, hands, and feet visible.
- The visible body parts have a pale, cream color, while the shell is mostly white.
- The shell features distinct blue and red markings, in the form of triangles and a square.
- The Pokémon’s head is adorned with a crown of five spikes, forming a star-like shape when viewed from above.
- Its eyes are small, black, and oval-shaped, often turning red when Togepi is about to cry.
