The film takes a look at the life of Riley, a young girl who moves from her life in the Midwest when her father gets a job in San Francisco. Riley’s emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – live in Headquarters, the control center of her mind, where they help guide her through her daily life, including the challenge of taking on a new school and friends. “Inside Out” is rated PG.

Today we’re sharing a tutorial on how to draw Joy, the happy optimist of the team.
