How to draw Rico | Madagascar

For fans of the Madagascar series, Rico is more than just a penguin. As the head of demolition and quartermaster for the Penguins, his chaotic antics, mixed with his unending loyalty to Skipper, make him a unique character worthy of admiration. As you learn how to draw Rico, you’ll uncover the layers of his personality and quirks that make him a standout in the Madagascar series.

Rico’s Unique Appearance: A Glimpse

  • Distinctly fatter than Skipper with a rounder head and a double chin.
  • Features a scar on the left side of his beak with a mysterious origin.
  • In Penguins of Madagascar: The Movie, a slicked-back tuft of feathers graces his head, and a chip appears on his beak’s right side.
  • Holds an arsenal of unexpected items in his gut, sometimes even bigger than him.
  • Mostly communicates through actions rather than words, yet understands and follows orders impeccably.
