How to Draw Pokemon Art Tutorials


This is a collection of tutorials for understanding how to draw Pokemon characters with great details.

Pokemon originated in Japan but later they have become a worldwide phenomenon. Like many of our readers, I’m a Pokemon fan. And since all designers love to sketch and draw, I thought why not share a collection of tutorials about how to draw Pokemon characters. So here’s the collection.

Drawing Pokemon is not really a hard thing if you have a proper guide. And this post contains those proper guides. To be exact, this collection contains almost a hundred tutorials to draw a Pokemon.

This post is divided into two parts, first one consists two sections. The first one contain image based guides for drawing Pokemon while the second section contains video tutorials about how to draw Pokemon step by step.

    Hello Smiller. Thank you for featuring some of my tutorials from!

    I’m glad you found them useful, though for the next time I’d like it if you asked for permission to direct link to my server beforehand.

    (It’s sort of considered bandwidth-theft if you don’t.)

    I might have had some alternatives for you. But like I said, I appreciate the feature. 🙂

    Hello Ayaz Malik.

    After looking at my web traffic again, I think that might be a good idea for you to move those images, yes. There’s been a rather dramatic increase in hits, which is great until the bill lands on the doormat. Heh.

    However if you could leave a link to my site up, that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Sincerely.
