I’m so excited because today is going to be a super fun tutorial day. I’m going to start things off by submitted a few lessons on chibi sized figures that we know and love. I was going through some of the chibis that I already drew hoping that I would come up with some ideas as to what I can do next. Luckily I came up with a few things that I thought would make really cool tutorials. The first was actually requested a while back and it’s on "how to draw chibi Optimus Prime", step by step. If you’re a Transformers fan you already know that Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots. I had a lot of fun making this chibi version of the one Transformer that is for good, and looks the best as a computer generated robot. I wanted to make sure that the chibi version of Optimus Prime wasn't too complex to draw. I knew that making this character easy enough for anyone to tackle was probably a good idea since he is so darn popular, and since he is the head honcho of the Autobots. I think you will find that drawing chibi Optimus Prime is going to be so much fun, and really simple to replicate. I shall return with more submissions that I know you are all going to love. Peace out and enjoy your drawing day!

STEP 3.

Begin sketching out the structure of face starting with the base of the jaw line and pointed chin. Remember, this is a robot so all the angles should be sharp, and the ends should all be pointed. Draw a few more layers for the face below the chin line and then move along to step four.

STEP 4.

Now that the head is all set, we can start working on getting the body drawn out. Begin with drawing the arms. Start at the shoulder and draw the small pieced sections. When drawing out the right arm be sure to draw in the small circled joint as an elbow and then continue with drawing out the rest of both arms.

Before drawing more of the body, you will need to first draw in the hands, and then draw in the detailing lines that makes the chibi look more like a robot.

Youa re already almost done with this tutorial. Here you will begin the process of getting chibi Optimus Prime's legs drawn out.

STEP 7.

For the last drawing step, you need to first begin erasing any guides and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up the drawing. Once that is done you can draw out the detailing definitions like the grooves on top of the head, the bolts on the side, of the head, draw out some eyes, and then draw in more of the details to the construction of the body. Don't forget to get those flames drawn in at the bottom of the legs.
