We’ve previously brought you animation tutorials on how to draw different characters from “Frozen,” including Anna, Elsa and Olaf.

This week, Jason Zucker, a character artist from Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is here to show you step-by-step how to draw Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was one of Walt Disney’s first popular animated characters. He made his on-screen debut in 1927 in a short called “Trolley Troubles” and went on to star in a total of 26 silent cartoons. When Walt Disney lost the rights to Oswald in 1928, he was inspired to create a new lead character – Mickey Mouse..

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit returned to the Disney family in 2006. He has since appeared in the “Epic Mickey” video game and in new Disney Parks merchandise.

  • Thanks Terry! My daughter is growing and getting really into Art. She is 9, almost 10. I like building her accessable materials because she uses them and excels at it.

  • What times do they do this at Art of Animation? Is it a set schedule or does it vary depending on the day? Thx

    • Tutorials are offered in the lobby.

  • Jaime, ‘regular’ pencils and paper should be fine for the kids to draw with. In this tutorial, it looks like Jason is using a ‘China Marker,’ a type of pencil with a crayon like texture that requires you to pull paper away from the tip in order to sharpen it. The paper he is using is animation paper, there are specially placed holes at the bottom so that it aligns perfectly with his desk.

    These tutorial videos are great, please post more of them!

  • I love this series. My daughter did a nice collection of white crayon on black construction paper after learning to draw some characters on Disne Cruise Line. I was wondering if we could possible get a list of suggested materials to make our drawings. What kids of paper, pencils, erasers, whatever we would need. I can tell its not a regular ol’ No. 2 pencil there but not really coming from an art/drawing background I am not quite sure what it is.

    Thanks! And keep the series coming. =0)

    • Thank you, Jamie. We plan to.
