What you will need:

Noris colour pencils in Red, Black and Yellow

1 x Noris HB pencil

1 x Noris Eraser

1 x Pigment Liner, 0.3mm line width

A4 White Paper

Optional: A ruler

Step one

Take your Noris HB pencil and start drawing a rough outline of Mickey.Ā Donā€™t be afraid to erase mistakes and keep going until the proportions of theĀ head, ears and bodyĀ are right. This will make things much easier once you start addingĀ more detail.

Step two

Once you are happy with the basic shape of Mickey, start adding detail onto the face and body. Draw over existing lines to create hisĀ shorts and shoes.

Tip: You may find it easier to use a ruler and make a line where Mickeyā€™s eyes need to go. This will ensureĀ his eyes are level.

Step three

Start drawing the hands. Often described as one of the most difficult things to draw, take time over the shape and angle so they look in proportion. Once you have done this, draw on a tail and outline the sketch again, getting rid of unwanted marks with your Noris eraser.

Now you are ready to colour!

Step four

Take your colouring pencils and use more pressure around the outside of each space to create a 3D effect.

Step five

We decided to use a pigment liner pen to make the drawing stand out even more. Take time in following the outline so Mickey looks nice and neat.
