A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • The hands and arms can be tricky. Take it slow and start with the thumb to help space and size the hand.

Let’s Draw A Kawaii Donut – Step By Step

Step 1: We have to do the body of our donut first. It has to be an oval shape, like the sample above.
Step 2: Draw a small oval a little bit above the center to represent the hole.
Step 3: Draw the frosting part by making wavy lines from edge to edge, leaving a space below to draw the face later.

Note that the frosting is following the bottom outline of the donut (curved and not straight horizontal).
Step 4: Below the frosting, draw two round circles for the eyes. In the middle of the eyes, add a small U-shaped stroke.
Step 5: Add the hands on each side – each with three cute little fingers.
Step 6: Let’s decorate the top part with little hearts! Draw in random direction, let’s imagine they were sprinkles!

At the bottom part, just add small circles on the sides of the cheek.
Step 7: We will now put details on the eyes. Draw one big and one small circle inside (like the image). Shade the outer part black. Leave the two circles inside the eyes white.
Step 8: Coloring time! You may choose whatever color you like for the frosting and for the heart sprinkles. A different shade will be nice for the donut’s face.
Step 9: Complete the touch by adding darker shades on the hole, edges of the frosting, as well as at the bottom outline of your donut. So cute! Kawaii!
