I love drawing cute kawaii and chibi animals.
These types of drawings are super cute to add to any notebook or planner and they also make great drawing projects for kids.
I’ve already done a lot of tutorials on drawing cute and kawaii animals that you can check out here.
In this post, I’m going to show you how to draw a cute chibi mushroom in this step-by-step guide so that you can make a regular mushroom super cute.
Whether you’re a kid or an adult learning how to draw, these steps are extremely easy to follow, let’s get started!
This is what you will be learning to make:
But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.
How to draw a cute chibi mushroom – Easy Step by step Guide
I always start with a rough guide and draw the shapes that comprise the object rather than drawing directly.
So first, we are going to draw a circle and a triangle overlapping like this.
This will eventually become our cute chibi mushroom.
Next, I am going to draw the mushroom stalk. For this, we are going to squish the bottom and draw longer sides like below, almost like a flattened “U” shape.
Next, to make the mushroom cute and chibi, I’m going to add 2 small round eyes and a U-shaped mouth.
Remember to draw it very low so that you can give the mushroom that cute kawaii look!
Next, we are going to draw 2 small arms and legs.
I’m just going to draw U shaped limbs like this:
Now, we need to draw the mushroom cap.
So, draw a curve that touches all the points of the triangle like this. The ends of the curve should meet our little mushroom stalk. Refer the picture below if you’re having doubts:
Now, let’s finish the cute chibi mushroom drawing by drawing the bottom part of the mushroom cap.
We’re nearly done!
To complete our mushroom drawing, we can add some small circles on the mushroom cap like this:
Easy, isn’t it?
And voila! We’ve finished drawing the cute chibi mushroom!
Now, we can start coloring it.
I’m going to color the stalk and its arms and legs first with a light cream color.
Then I’ll color the mushroom cap red and color the circles a very pale yellow – I’m coloring my mushroom with traditional colors but you can color your chibi mushroom any color you want!
Finally, I’ll color the inside of the mushroom cap a dark brown and even add some lines to give it a more organic look like this:
And we’re done coloring the mushroom!
But if you want to give it that kawaii look, add 2 blush spots under the eyes on the mushroom’s cheeks.
And you’re done!
