Disney Parks has put out a variety of great content online since they closed their gates due to social distancing. While it’s a let down that we can’t visit the parks, It’s so great that park cast members are spreading the magic any way they can. Part of that effort comes from the Animation Academy, where Disney artists show you how to Draw Disney Characters right at home. Here are some examples and links to some Magic Kingdom inspired drawing tutorials.
How to Draw Tinker Bell
Nothing says Disney World like Tinker Bell. She was sort of Walt Disney’s silent partner in presenting Disneyland to the world and she has been an icon for the magic of the Disney parks ever since. Tinker Bell is not just Peter Pan’s Neverland sidekick. She has her own series of super fun movies. This Animation Academy tutorial will show how to draw a front view of Tinker Bell’s face, including how to draw that fabulous hairstyle.
How to Draw Stitch
Stitch is that rascally mischievous alien who has wreaked havoc on the Magic Kingdom by TP-ing the castle and burping chili dog scent ever since his arrival at the beginning of the 2000s. He’s been a prominent fixture over at the Polynesian Village resort where you can sometimes meet with him and Lilo at the restaurant Ohana. In this tutorial from the Animation Academy, you’ll learn how to draw the infamous Stitch at his most um…dignified?
How to Draw Mickey
Mickey Mouse is where it all began and no Disney drawing tutorial would be complete without him. The thing is this amazing character has been around for so long it’s hard to decide which version to draw. Sorcerer Mickey, 1920s Mickey, and the current Mickey Mouse are just a few of the options. With this class, you can learn how to draw a three-dimensional looking version of the more familiar Mickey Mouse we know from before his hilarious resurgence in the recent animated shorts and Mickey’s Runaway Railway.
How to Draw Dopey
If you stay around the Bay Lake area of the Magic Kingdom resort area, you may have dined at a little restaurant called Artist Point. This signature restaurant has been transformed into an elevated character dining experience for dinner service. The meal includes themed meal options and drinks in an environment that hints at Snow White’s enchanted forest. Dopey, the most endearing of the Seven Dwarfs is part of the experience along with Snow White. Drawing this fun classic character is a great way to remember Walt Disney World.
How to Draw Pascal
Despite his silents and his camouflage, Pascal’s character speaks volumes. He is a lot of fun to watch in the movie Tangled and so much fun to learn to draw. Pascal puts his chameleon skills to the test by the Tangled restrooms in Fantasyland. Can you find him? In this animation tutorial, you’ll learn how to draw a full-body version of Pascal with all the personality you love about this character.
Learning to draw your favorite Disney characters is a fun way to spend the day while the parks are closed, plus you can save your beautiful artwork for the magical days ahead when the parks reopen and use them as a unique way to collect character’s autographs.
