How to Draw Ariel

Step 1

In this first step of our tutorial on how to draw Ariel, we’ll start with her head and hair. Remember that she’s underwater, so we’ll draw her hair flowing around her head.

Start with a curved line for her nose, then use rounded shapes for her big eyes.

Then you can draw her smiling lips. His head will be resting on his hand, so use some curved lines for his hand underneath his head.

Once the face is ready, let’s draw her hair. To make the hair flow around her head, use some curvy, wavy lines as it looks in the reference image. So we’re ready for step 2 of the guide, so let’s move on!

Step 2

We will start drawing arms for Ariel at this stage of your drawing of Ariel. You drew her hand under her head in the last step, so in this part, we will draw her hand coming down from this hand.

It bends and extends to the shoulder, which you can draw with a rounded line. The other arm extends outward from the left side and is bent upward.

This arm will end with a hand running through her hair to give a thoughtful look.

Finally, finish with a rounded shape with lines for the beginning of her fish tail.

Step 3

In this step of our guide on how to draw Ariel, we’re going to add a lot, so we’re going to take it slow and slow.

The main aspect we will add is the fishy half of his body. This half of his body is bent, so his elbows rest on it.

You’ll see what we mean in the reference image, and it should be an easy part to draw! You can then use some more wavy lines for the end of his lazy story, and there will be some lines in this part too.

Then you can draw the big flat rock she’s sitting on and add a small starfish for extra detail.

That’s all for this part, so we can start working on some background elements in the next few steps.

Step 4

Now that you’re drawn Ariel, let’s start working on the background scene for your drawing of Ariel.

To match the underwater look of this scene, we’re going to draw some large strands of seaweed behind her.

These are drawn with sharp, wavy lines to create the seaweed flowing behind her.

In the next step, we’ll add more seaweed, and you’ll have an opportunity to add some details to the image!

Step 5

This step of our tutorial on drawing Ariel is about the fish in the picture’s background. You can draw another large strand of seaweed running behind her.

Once that’s added, you’re ready for the final step! As mentioned in the last step, this is also a great opportunity to add more personal details.

There are many ideas you could get on this! One idea would be to draw other characters from the film.

You could add his friends Flounder the fish, Sebastian the crab, or even his father, King Triton!

These are just a few ideas on how to customize this theme, but we’re excited to see what else you come up with. What do you think you would like to add to complete this drawing of Ariel?

Step 6

In the final part of your drawing of Ariel, we’re going to finish it with some great colors! In the reference image, we showed you the colors Ariel has in the movies, so you can use that as an example if you want it to match her looks.
