How to Draw Eevee Pokemon: Step By Step

Eevee is a cute Pokemon for me. Unlike other Pokemon, Eevee has multiple types of evolutions available in the game and anime. 

I think Eevee is almost as cute as Pikachu. It’s the cat version of Pokemon Worlds. Similar to a lion, Eevee also has a mane. Because Eevee is so pretty, it’s one of the most popular Pokemon. 

If you want to draw Eevee, I will help you do so by following my step-by-step drawing guide. 

This guide will break down the process into small steps, from sketching the basic shapes to coloring your drawing.

Tools Needed

You’ll need paper, a soft pencil (HB) for sketching, a hard pencil (2B-4B) for drawing, and colored pencils if you want to add color. If drawing digitally, use any app you like.

I will use Procreate on my iPad for my Eevee drawing. Besides Procreate, you can use Photoshop,  Krita, Medibang, Clip Studio Paint or other drawing apps to draw your Pokemon.

Step-by-Step Instructions on How to Draw Eevee

Step 1: Draw the Basic Shapes of the Eevee

Draw the Basic Shapes of the Eevee

For the first step of your drawing, you need to draw the basic shapes of the Eevee.

Start thinking about what 2D or 3D shapes you can use to draw Eevee. You must draw the outline of Eevee’s body, head, manes, ears, legs, and tail. 

Head and Ears:

  • Start by drawing a circle slightly on top of your paper or canvas. This will be the base of Eeve’s head.
  • On top of the head, draw two triangles as the shapes for the ears

Body and Legs:

  • Below the head circle, draw a long circle to the right of the canvas. Then, outline each Eeve’s legs by drawing two triangles and a small circle between them as the joint.

Tail

  • Behind the circle/the body, draw a big ellipse to outline Eeeve’s tail.

Now, check the overall proportions of your shapes. The head should be slightly smaller than the body, and the tail should be bigger than the body and the head from your point of view.

You can adjust the sizes slightly to match your favorite style.

Step 2: Draw the Eeve’s Head

Draw the Eeve’s Head

Start drawing Eeve’s head by following the circle you drew for the head in Step 1.

Divide the circle into two halves with a vertical line drawn down the center. This will help you place the facial features symmetrically.

Then, draw a circle facing the top to divide the circle horizontally. You will use this circle to place the eyes.

Draw the head from the left to the right. Curve the line when you draw the cheek part to make Eevee cuter. Don’t draw the chin too sharp.

Draw confidently, without any hesitation, in one stroke. Avoid sketch and hesitant lines; a chicken scratch line is terrible for drawing and shows you’re not confident with your line.

Step 3: Draw the Eevee’s Ears and Hair

Draw the Eevee’s Ears and Hair

After drawing the head, let’s move to the top part: ears and hair.

From the triangle you have drawn in Step 1, draw the right ear first. The ear curved to the outside before the midpoint and curved inside past the midpoint. 

Draw the top of the ear sharply.

After drawing the right ear, draw the left ear with the same method. The right ear (left in our point of view) is tilted more upward than the left ear. 

Draw the hair with the hair direction to the left between the ear.

Step 4: Draw the Mouth and Nose

Draw the Eevee's Mouth and Nose

Draw the mouth by drawing a small triangle facing downward. Place the nose at the middle of the head and below the horizontal circle you draw in Step 2

Then, draw the mouth below the nose. You only need to draw a smiley mouth without any teeth or tongue.

Then, draw the pupil and eyebrow. The shape of the pupil is long ellipses. You can draw it with a perfect circle if you want to.

Step 5: Complete the Head

Complete drawing the head

Now, you need to finish the head part. First, focus on the eye. Draw the eye of Eevee outside of the pupil you have drawn. 

Try to make both eyes symmetrical. But it’s okay if it’s not 100% symmetrical.

Next, let’s focus on the inner ears. Start by drawing the inner section inside the ear itself. Then, in the middle of this area, add a small cluster of triangles stacked or overlapping slightly.

You can refer to the above image for inspiration on how I drew the ears and their inner details. After finishing the head part, move to the tail. 

Draw the tail by following the outline you draw in Step 1. Make the tail point upward and curve to make it fluffy.

Step 6: Draw the Manes

Eevee's manes

Now let’s draw the Eeve’s manes. It’s similar to lion manes. The manes are wider than the faces. 

Just follow my example on how I draw the manes. Start drawing from the left, below the faces. Slowly draw a triangular-like shape to stimulate the hair in the manes. 

Make the manes fluffy if you want to.

Step 7: Draw the Legs and Feet

Now, draw the legs and feet. Eeeves has four legs. Start drawing the two front legs. The leg should be straight, but there is a small curve between the upper and lower leg.

After drawing the leg, draw the toes with a shape similar to a cat.

One of the back legs is hidden from your point of view. Between the front and back legs, draw the stomach connecting them. 

Then erase the sketch part to make your drawing look cleaner

Step 8: Color the Eevee

Coloring Eevee

Your Eevee drawing is finally finished. Finally, you can color your Eevee drawing. 

If you draw it digitally, you can use these color codes:

Body: #dfa663

Manes: #dcc49b

Tail: #c1916a

If you draw it traditionally, then follow these tips:

1. Body: Begin by filling the Eevee’s body with brown. Use gentle strokes, gradually layering the color to prevent harsh lines.

2. Details: With a black pencil, add details like the eyes, pupils, mouth, nose, and the tip of the tail.

3. Mane: Choose either light yellow or gray for the mane.

4. Tail: Use a darker shade of brown for the tail. Finish with the same color (light yellow or gray) as the mane for the tail tip.
