When I was drawing chibi Pocahontas live yesterday I could have sworn people where flipping out over the cuteness of her creation. I chose to do Pocahontas because she is one of my favorite Disney princess characters that doesn't get a lot of recognition. Here is my take on "how to draw chibi Pocahontas", step by step. Pocahontas was one of the first movies I can remember watching as a young girl, and when I saw it for the first time, I was blown away by the comical concept of the raccoon and the bird. John Smith was voiced by Mel Gibson which made it a whole lot better, and Pocahontas' character had such a strength that I never seen in any Disney princess before. I really had a lot of fun creating her for you, and I believe that you guys will enjoy drawing chibi Pocahontas too. If you have any suggestions for a Disney princess, or any character for that matter to be turned into a chibi, just drop a request and let me know.

How to Draw Chibi Pocahontas

STEP 1.

Let us begin our journey to drawing chibi Pocahontas. Start by making a large circle for her head and then draw in the guidelines for the torso, arms, and face. End this step by drawing the pelvic or hip area.

Thicken the lining you drew in for her head to shape out her face. Incorporate an ear, and then sketch in the inner ear detailing as well as the side burn for part of her hair creation.

STEP 3.

Using the facial guides you made in step one, draw thick, dark top lid lines for her eyes. Make the shapes of her after that, and then draw in the iris'. Make pointed short eyebrows like so and then a scratch of a line for her nose.

STEP 4.

Let's get started with her body. You will begin by drawing her arms, and then draw the simple outlined shape of her body. The bottom of her clothing should form a V and there should be some material notches as well for the fringe. Make small nub bumps for the fingers and move along.

STEP 5.

Here is where you will tackle the task of drawing her dress fringe and detailing. Before we begin though, you will need to draw her necklace which her mother gave her. After that, draw the top line followed by the hanging fringe. Draw in a waist line and then sketch in the creases on her dress as well as the detailing for the bottom fringe.

STEP 6.

Draw in the tree trunk stubby legs like so, and make some lines at the base of each leg to form a foot. These lines are for her toes.

Lastly my favorite part, draw Pocahontas' hair to perfection. She has beautiful hair that should be drawn in just right even though this is just a chibi version of her. Every chibi character must maintain a certain characteristics about the figure you are trying to replicate. This would be it for this chibi. When you are done drawing the long straight hair style which should also be blowing or swaying to the left, draw in the vertical lines for her hair detailing or strands. Clean up your drawing so you have a nice finished sketch to color in.
