How to draw Ursula | The Little Mermaid

Ursula is not just any character from Disney’s treasure trove. As the formidable antagonist of 1989’s ‘The Little Mermaid,’ she’s a sea witch who cunningly strikes deals with innocent merfolk, promising to grant their deepest wishes. However, her contracts, masterfully designed to further her ambitions, spell doom for those who dare to engage. Previously a resident of King Triton’s opulent palace, Ursula’s banishment has fueled her desire for vengeance, compelling her to seek the power of Triton’s trident and rule the entire ocean realm. In this tutorial, we will show you how to draw Ursula by following 11 simple steps.

Sketching Ursula: Key Appearance Aspects

  • Ursula’s Form: A stunning blend of human and octopus, Ursula is a cecaelia.
  • Facial Features: Light lavender skin, gray eyes, and a characteristic mole near her mouth set her apart.
  • Attire: Always impeccably dressed, Ursula sports makeup, including aqua blue eye shadow and deep red lipstick.

Artists might also want to consider drawing Ursula’s trusted eel companions, Flotsam and Jetsam, or perhaps add Ariel or King Triton to showcase a dramatic scene from Atlantica.
