If you know me, you know I’m a big fan of Pixar’s animated feature WALL-E. The 2008 movie from director Andrew Stanton has at its heart a love story between a dedicated trash compactor and an advanced robot. Both share the same mission of saving the Earth and that bonds them together in a perfect robot romance.
As today is Valentines Day, it’s the perfect time to learn how-to draw the robotic duo of WALL-E and Eve. Disney artist Stephen Ketchum from Disney’s Art of Animation Resort has recorded these easy to follow instructions on how to draw this romantic couple yourself. Perhaps for a homemade card for someone you want to say thank you for being there to.
See. Isn’t that simple. Just ovals and squares. Who am I kidding. I need a lot of help to get as good as Stephen. But I won’t let that stop me from enjoying WALL-E.
Watch the video again and try drawing the couple yourself, then DM me the results on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and I’ll share them here.
