This is an easy and fun, creative way to add some Disney magic to your day, starting with a complete series of how-to tutorials on drawing Mickey Mouse through the years as well as tutorials for bringing to life all of your Disney favorites.
Disney cast member Stephen Ketchum has been drawing Mickey at Disney Parks for years and has expert tips for artists of all skill levels. Disney has combined Stephen’s best Mickey tutorials and the collection includes learning to draw a vintage 1920’s Mickey as well as lessons on creating more contemporary and whimsical “pied-eyed” versions you’ll want to show your friends and family.
First, we’re beginning with easy to follow instructions on how to draw Mickey as artists would have created him in the late 1920s. You begin with a simple circle and then use lightly drawn curved lines to create Mickey.
Drawing a more contemporary looking Mickey has just a few different shapes added.
And finally, creating a perfect “pied-eyed” Mickey begins with an oval shape instead of a standard circle followed again by lightly drawn curved lines to finish your own work of art.
Grab some paper and try all three Mickeys now! Use #Disney and #BetterTogether on Instagram and be sure to tag @DisneyParksBlog with your artwork, and for a chance to be featured on the Disney Parks Blog channel! Could a future artist be living at your house?
