Donald Duck is one of Disney’s most famous characters. It is a duck that has the characteristics of a human being, with a rather bad character, who is generally angry.
His outfit is typical, since he always wears a sailor shirt with a huge bow and a sailor cap. In general, he does not wear pants except in special circumstances such as when he is going to swim or do some other sport.
Coloring Pages Donald Duck
Within our list of drawings of Donald Duck to paint and color, I will start with some drawings of the character’s face. In this first image we have it winking. In this three-quarter view you have the typical poses of Disney drawings, in which you try to avoid totally symmetrical drawing, which gives you greater dynamism.
Position of the beak, the eyes and the cap with the head achieve this end.
Another drawing of Donald’s face shows him angry, something quite common in him. In this drawing, despite being totally in front, you can see that symmetry is avoided because the peak is not equal on one side and the other, in addition to the cap is pulled to the side, seeing part of the head of that side, and not the other.
Donald Duck has starred in many stories in magazines and cartoons, being one of the most popular characters around the world.
In comics it is typical that he starts with a very good mood, with a lot of optimism, and then little by little his mood changes when things do not go as he would like. This goes to the point where it explodes, as are the typical stories with Chip and Dale squirrels.
In the year 1931 it is mentioned for the first time in a book of Disney stories, but the first appearance was in 1934, in an animation called Silly Symphonies and The Little Chicken Wise. At that time his personality had not yet been fully developed, and although the clothes were the same as a lifetime, his initial appearance was changing a lot. In that appearance he was much fatter and with very large legs.
Donald Duck drawing: whole body
What was the same since its birth was that classic voice of Donald Duck in which it is practically unintelligible. That voice was that of his birth and spread the same throughout his life.
In 1937 it was redesigned, becoming rounder and lower. At that time, Donald Duck became the star of Disney characters, beating Mickey Mouse.
In 1938 his nephews would appear for the first time, in the movie Donald’s nephews.
In these full-length drawings you can see the entire character, with his typical image: the white duck with the legs and the orange beak and dressed in his blue shirt. In the drawing you have above we see that it does not have the red bow, which are small details that have sometimes varied.
This drawing corresponds even to some chapters in which the black suit was put, instead of the typical blue suit.
This drawing of Donald Duck has an almost classic design, except for the eyes with those slightly weird glitters, which take it away from a lifetime. Whenever character revisions are made, they undergo some changes. In this case the change was very subtle.
Here we have the duck in its classic design, where you can see it in full magnitude. Despite being in this case in a symmetrical pose, with both arms placed at the waist, the drawing has no symmetry, since it is not in front but three quarters. In this way it breaks with all symmetry, because one arm is in the foreground and the other is covered by the body, the head is also turned, and even the tail appears on one side.
In this drawing I wanted to incorporate a thicker stroke to see the result. I liked it a lot, and I think that for children to color it is even better.
There is so much laughter that Donald has in this image that he throws himself on the floor to laugh. It is a very nice drawing of our character. With all these drawings to color that I am putting you, you can create some cards to give to someone you want. You print the drawing, you paint it, you add a phrase you like and you’re done.
This drawing is very good for coloring because it has many different things. It is a drawing in which Donald Duck is disguised as Napoleon, and has a gesture of command. The jacket with its different ornaments, the hat with feathers, the saber and the gloves can be elements that give a lot of play when it comes to coloring it.
This scene is very funny, and it is also a good product for memes that are so fashionable today. Here the Donald Duck has been totally naked and tries to cover himself looking at the camera totally ashamed.
What I was telling you about memes is that you talk about the illogical of cartoons, because Donald never wears pants, and when he is naked, what he tries to cover is the lower part of his body, which is never covered. It is the magic of cartoons, where logic does not fit.
Current design of Donald Duck
As I have been saying throughout the article, the cartoon characters are changing in terms of aesthetics, always trying to adapt to current trends. · Donald Duck is not strange to this type of change.
In this drawing above you can see the current design of Donald Duck, in a series of short films that are aired on Disney Channel. As you can see, the clothes are always faithful, even respecting the colors. But the drawing itself changes completely in its style and in the proportions of the drawing. In this case the duck appears with a larger head, a thinner body, fingertip fingertips, leaving aside those hands so well formed that it had previously.
For you to compare it I am going to put some other drawings of classic style.
This drawing clearly shows the differences with the previous one. Despite having clenched fists due to his anger, the perfectly drawn hand can be seen in terms of shape, always referred to a human hand, despite being a duck.
This drawing is the same with which I headed the article, only before it was colored. I leave this to you to paint it to your liking.
