Learn how to draw Isabela Madrigal from the animated movie Encanto in this step-by-step cartoon guide. Learn the techniques I used from sketching all the way to coloring.


Drawing is a great skill to have, and it is a skill that people can learn at any age. A great way to improve drawing is to draw popular characters from your favorite movies.


Isabela is one of the favorites in the movie Encanto.

She is the older sister of Mirabel, the protagonist.

Just like the other Madrigals (except for Mirabel), she has received a superpower.

She has the ability to control and conjure beautiful flowers and plants. Isabela is described as graceful and "effortlessly perfect".


Isabela is a young woman with hazel eyes, dark skin, a teardrop-shaped mole on her cheek, long black hair with a pink flower on her left side, and diamond earrings. 

Isabella wears a ruffled and layered lavender dress, adorned with flowers (representing her superpowers), and wearing matching purple slippers.
