I have put together a step-by-step tutorial that will help you figure out how to draw Tico by using simple shapes to build up his form. This is an intermediate cartooning tutorial that kids, teens, and adults will enjoy.

How to Draw Tico from Dora the Explorer with Step by Step Drawing Lesson for Preschoolers and Parents
Start off by drawing a rounded triangle, like a piece of candy corn.
Now draw a curved letter ‘w’ at the bottom of the candy corn shape. Draw an oval for the head.
Now draw an oval for the ear, an oval for the tail and a triangle on top of the tail oval. Draw a candy corn arm. Draw a sideways number ‘2’ above the arm. Draw a circle for the nose and one for each eye.
Draw a triangle above each eye. Draw a circle in each eye for the iris / pupil…fill it in black except for a tiny circle highlight. Draw the teeth (a sideways letter ‘E’). Put squiggly lines in the tail (after your round the edges. )
After erasing some of the guidelines…..start drawing the coat. Also draw Tico’s tongue.
Draw lines in the coat….also draw pockets by drawing a sideways letter ‘J’ for the top and a letter ‘U’ for the actual pocket.
This is what Tico should look like after darkening some of the lines.
If you want to colorize Tico, here are the colors to use.
