How to draw Tommy Pickles

Welcome, aspiring artists! Today we embark on a creative adventure as we delve into the world of Rugrats, the beloved children’s television series. Our mission is to learn how to draw Tommy Pickles, the inquisitive and adventurous leader of the infant characters.

Getting to Know Tommy Pickles

Before we begin to sketch, let’s take a closer look at our subject, Tommy Pickles. Despite being a one-year-old baby, Tommy’s personality is larger than life. He is known for his characteristic inquisitiveness and his love for exploration. His courageous spirit often leads him out of his crib and into many unusual situations.

While we’re focusing on Tommy, you may want to consider adding his friends Chuckie, Angelica, and Spike to your drawing for an ensemble piece, as these characters share great camaraderie and have their own distinct design features.

Demystifying the Guide

Before we move on, let’s talk about our guide and its color-coded scheme:

  • Red Color: This represents the current step you should be focusing on.
  • Black Color: These are the lines you have already drawn.
  • Grey Color: This is your basic sketch which lays down the fundamental structure.

Our guide consists of 14 steps, starting with creating the basic structure of the sketch with light pencil strokes. In the final step, you may choose to ink your sketch. To do so, you’ll need an ink pen to go over your pencil lines. Once you’ve finished inking, allow it to dry fully before gently erasing the pencil marks. This approach ensures a cleaner, sharper end result.

Why should I sketch lightly in the early stages?

Sketching lightly helps you to easily erase and adjust lines in the early stages. It makes the refining process more forgiving and less messy.

What’s the purpose of the inking step?

Inking your sketch enhances its visibility, provides a polished look, and accentuates your lines. However, inking is optional and some artists may prefer the softer look of pencil sketches.

Why should I wait for the ink to dry before erasing the pencil sketch?

Waiting for the ink to dry before erasing the pencil sketch prevents smudging. If the ink is still wet and you try to erase, you might end up with unwanted lines and smears.
