How to Draw Joy from Inside Out 2: A Step-by-Step Guide

Joy is the protagonist of the 2015 Disney•Pixar animated feature film Inside Out and its 2024 sequel. She is the very first of the emotions to appear inside the mind of Riley Andersen, often acting as the leader. She always strives to keep Riley happy, hence her name.

Joy’s Appearance

Joy’s unique features make her a delightful character to draw. Here are some key aspects to focus on:

  • Light yellow skin made of energy particles.
  • Slender figure with a larger head.
  • Shimmery, sky-blue hair in a pixie cut with bangs.
  • Large, oval-shaped, azure blue eyes with dark-blue liner.
  • Light chartreuse, sleeveless skater dress with crisscrossed lines and blue shapes.
  • Bioluminescent glow, with bright blue light from her body and yellow glow around her feet.
