Want to learn how to draw Totoro? Please enjoy this one minute lesson from Studio Ghibli’s former president, film producer Toshio Suzuki. His Japanese instruction is supplemented with English subtitles and some charming piano music.
Using a brush-tipped pen to outline Totoro’s ears and body, Suzuki’s well-practiced sketch makes drawing Totoro look simple. But there’s a secret within the details: “You have to draw his eyes far apart. That’s the key point.”
