Hi, everyone, I'm Chris Buck, and I'm a director at Walt Disney Feature Animation.
Istarted as a trainee in 1978 and worked my way up to CharacterAnimator on my very first film, The Fox and the Hound.
I worked onmany films since and I've been lucky enough to be a director onTarzan and Frozen 1 and 2.
Today I'm going to show you howto draw one of my favorite characters from my favoriteDisney film, Pinocchio.
Okay, we're gonna draw Pinocchio and I am going to start bygiving myself this box.
It helps give me someguidelines and break it down into thirds.
And then kind of the first twothirds of it are his it's gonna be his cranium.
Andthen the bottom third, more like his cheek, his cheek area.
Okay, rough that out sort of to wherethe centerline is, the head and the cheek you can even start to put the ear in a little bit and start to put his just part of his body.
We'rejust drawing his head today and his shoulders.
He has a very expressive face.
And we can also rough in, start torough in his hat kind of signature hat that he'sgot.
And maybe even throw the featherin right now.
Got his hair, the side of his hairgot shock of hair up here comes out from under the hat.
And as you can see I'm drawingover the whole thing, the whole at one time I keepgoing back and forth, making sure that things are all sort of workingtogether.
Okay, now we've got this centerline here that's helpingus show where the nose is going to go.
And this is where the nose sortof inserts and I haven't drawn the wholenose yet and then We've got to start to rough in the eyes that are right around that nose.
Even the eyebrow, little eyebrow above the eye.
And now let's start to rough in more of the nose and mouth.
Okay, before we go too far, let's get the pupils in there.
Start to see what we've got withthe pupils where he's looking probablylooking down at Jiminy.
Okay, now let's go back and, go under his gonna bring this cheek in alittle bit and add a little tongue, there, lower lip.
Just subtly put that in there.
And okay let's tie this down.
not tie, not going to tie down yet.
I'm gonna actually put a bow tie on him for his signature bow tie of Pinocchio, kind of floppy thing.
And let's figure out more of the the hat and it kind of curves down wellI drew it straight before just to give myself where it might be, where it would land.
Now, we're going to actually buildthe hat a little bit better and how that wraps around thehead, a little brim there, Add the feather, a little more dimension with that, we've got this band that comes down on the hat, wraps around it There's parts of the hat, kind ofseparate parts that really wrap around and fit on his head snugly.
Alright, let's go ahead and tie him down.
See what we got I'm gonna start with the noseand the eyes.
Let's get that mouth going, cutecheek A little bit inside of his mouth.
More cheek area here.
Fix that a little bit, I got a little carried away.
Okay, it's a little better.
Hi ear, his hair, his neck, again the tie, kind of filling that in.
Got a cute shock of hair popping out.
Pinocchio is a really, really cutecharacter has a lot of round shapes to him.
Much like Mickey.
Mickey, very appealing very round kind of shapes, and Pinocchio's in that same place.
And darken a little more, So there you've got going to make them a little bitbigger.
I'll tell you what, I'm bringingthat cheek down a little bit, so it's not sticking out too much, And one more pass at the eyes.
I think we're close.
There we go.
One of my favorite characters, my favorite film of all time before that, I'mgoing to fix this before we go.
That's a little too much.
I'm gonna fix that too.
I don't know why I went thatcrazy right there.
There's Pinocchio have fun drawing him! He's a cute character, one ofthe classic ones and have a ball.
