When was the last time I submitted a lesson on something completely adorable, besides all the cute and easy stuff? A while that’s how long. Today, I thought I would do a tutorial on "how to draw babies", step by step. Babies are without a doubt, the cutest living human beings in existence. I know it’s mean to say this but, to me it’s not true when people say there is no such thing as an ugly baby. I hate to break it to all you peeps out there that believe that saying, but there are a lot of ugly babies out there. Luckily, I was an adorable baby when I was born; at least that’s what everyone in my family tells me. I have pictures of myself when I was an infant looking so incredibly cute. Come to think about it, I looked just like the Gerber baby. Are you guys taking me seriously yet? Good, that’s what I was going for. You can’t honestly believe that I’m that conceded do you? The fact is, I think I was a fat ugly baby. I mean come on, I weighed ten pounds twelve ounces when I was born, and because of that, my cheeks where forever looking like I had a whole winters worth of nuts stuffed inside of my mouth. I wanted to draw a cute chubby looking baby that has a very expressive look on its face. The fatness was inspired from me being such a big infant when I was born, and the baldness was an idea I came up with because more babies are born bald than they are with hair. If you like drawing little people, you will fall in love with this lesson on "how to draw babies". I had so much fun with this lesson, and to prove it, I’ve included a bunch of helpful tips for you guys to follow. Well, that’s another one down and only three more tutorials to go. I will be back in a bit everyone so stay tuned in. Peace out people, and try to not get so much baby mucus on you when tackling this lesson.

How to Draw Babies

how to draw babies step 1

STEP 1.

So basically, when you want to start off by drawing a baby, you'll want to investigate in the concept of characterizing them. First, let's haul out the details for the types of eyes you can customize your baby with. 1. Eyes like these are the most adorable, they leave room for a semi-realistic look. The two reflected white dots, add more cuteness. 2. This is more of a realistic type of eye. 3. A cute oval button eye, would work best for large chubby faces! 4. Same as 3, but with 3 white reflection spots.

STEP 2.

Now, in cartoons, you'll probably realize a curly pig tail hair. This makes your baby seem it's a klutz. You can add a patch of hair to go a bit forward to semi-realism.

STEP 3.

Here's a few important details you should focus on when it comes to drawing babies. 1. By having a soft round look to the edge of the face, it will strike an appearance of youth. This is of course what you want! Babies are generally very small and chubby, but grow out as they age. 2. A cute buttony nose would suit perfectly for this baby! 3. Adding essential blush marks will give a subtle essence of cuteness that will spice up the overall drawing. You want that cute little face to be welcoming and hug-gable!

STEP 4.

1. By adding a brief line for the separation from the torso and chubby belly, you'll add a nice look! It will create a bit more logic and expose the belly more. 2. Adding swirl patterns to the edges of the major joints, will only give the baby style and character.

STEP 9.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the baby Dumbo ears, finish the eyes, add the nose, eyebrows, and blush lines in her cheeks. Draw some swirls on the elbows, and knees, and then draw in the other foot, draw two dots for the nipples, and then draw the foot detailing lines to create an arch. Erase all the shapes and lines you drew in step one. This will prepare your drawing for color, or for display.
