In this tutorial, we will guide you step by step on how to draw Stitch. So grab your drawing materials, get ready to unleash your creativity, and let’s embark on an artistic adventure as we learn how to draw the adorable Stitch!

How To Draw Stitch   

Ensure you have the following supplies ready:
Pencils: A variety of graphite pencils for sketching and shading.
Erasers: Regular erasers for precision.
Paper: High-quality paper or a sketchbook.
Reference images: Gather images of the character.


Step 1 –  Draw Stitch’s Head

 Stitch Drawing Step 1 

Are you ready to bring Stitch to life on your paper? Great! Let’s start by drawing his head. In the middle of our paper, imagine drawing a big, upside-down “U” shape. It’s like a smiley face turned upside down! Then, draw a small curved line next to the “U” shape. This line is Stitch’s cheek, and it should be more flat than the “U” shape, slightly curved.


Step 2 – Add the Nose

Now, let’s give Stitch a cute, little nose. Right in the middle of his head, imagine drawing a large “U” shape. It looks a bit like an upside-down “V” at the bottom. Then, add a curved line on top to finish the nose. You can also draw tiny nostrils on each side, just like little dots. Stitch’s nose is as unique as he is, and it helps him sniff out all the fun and adventures around him!


Step 3 – Draw the Eyes

Stitch has big, expressive eyes that show his playful spirit. On the left and right side of his head, imagine drawing two big circles. These circles are Stitch’s eyes, and they’re like two shiny marbles. Now, let’s add smaller circles on top of each eye for highlights. These little circles will make Stitch’s eyes sparkle with joy! And color in the big circles with your black color, but leave the smaller circles white.


Step 4 – Create the Mouth

Stitch’s mouth is where all his emotions come alive. Draw a short curved line in the middle of his head. Imagine he’s making a little frown. But wait, let’s turn that frown upside down! Curve back up at the ends of the line to make him smile.  Now, add little lines on each side for his cheeks, like tiny dimples when he grins. And don’t forget to draw two wrinkles above his mouth, like little lines that show he’s a mischievous little creature.


Step 5 – Shape the Ears

Now, let’s give Stitch his adorable ears! Imagine drawing upside-down “U” shapes for his eyebrows, right above each eye. Connect these eyebrows to the outside shape of Stitch’s head. Starting next to his cheek, draw a big curve that comes up, and do the same on the other side. These curves will make Stitch’s eyebrows look like little hills of mischief! But wait, we’re not done with the ears yet. Imagine drawing upside-down “U” shapes at the top of each ear. Add a sideways “V” shape, like a little cut, on each ear. Finally, connect the ears to his head.


Step 6 – Give Depth to the Ears And Add Hair on Top

Stitch’s ears have a special shape that gives them depth. Imagine tracing down from the top of each ear, coming down a little further, and connecting it to the cheek. Repeat this on the outside of each ear. Next, let’s add some funky hair on top of Stitch’s head. Imagine drawing a diagonal line, like a slanted slope, for the hair sticking out from the top of his head. And here’s the fun part: draw a zigzag line coming down and connecting to his head. This hair adds a playful touch to Stitch’s appearance, just like his wild and untamed spirit.


Step 7 – Draw the Body and Arms

Stitch’s body is as lovable as his personality! Start next to his chin and imagine drawing curves coming down on each side. These curves will be his arms, ready to give big, warm hugs! Now, let’s draw Stitch’s body. Imagine a raindrop shape, curving down, around, and back up. Repeat this shape on the other side for his other arm. And don’t forget his claws. Draw three curved “V” shapes sticking out from the bottom of each hand. These claws give Stitch his unique charm. Oh, and let’s add a zigzag line for fur on his chest. It’s like a fuzzy patch that makes him even more cuddly!


Step 8 – Draw the Legs and Feet

Stitch is always on the move, so let’s draw his legs and feet, ready to take him on his next adventure! Imagine drawing a curve for each leg, connecting them to his body. And here’s a fun touch: add toes by drawing four claws sticking out from each foot. These claws help Stitch stay steady as he explores new places! Next, let’s draw a smaller circle inside each foot.


Step 9 – Let’s Color!

Let’s bring Stitch to life with colors! Imagine using various shades of blue to color his body. You can use a dark blue shade for his nose and claws, making them stand out. And don’t forget his eyes! Color them with a light blue shade, making them shine with curiosity. For a fun twist, you can color the inside of his ears pink, giving him a touch of playful charm. And let’s not forget about his tongue! Color it pink too, as it adds a splash of color to his mischievous grin!
