Now, I'm going to draw Brian from Family Guy. Brian is actually quite simple really, there's not much to draw, so we start with circles for the eyes. This circle, you don't really want to join it up at the bottom, because you're going to put his nose in, anyway, so sort of do a bit of a circle off of the first one you've drawn.
For his nose, you're going to come down from this side and you're going to come out like that. Do it nice and light, that way, if you do make a mistake, you haven't got to worry because we're working in pencil, anyway. And then you put a bit on the end there, it's going to be a black bit, so just shade that in like that.
Brian's eyes sort of have a look, sort of half asleep or not really interested or bothered about anything, so we shall do it like that. Brian's bottom lip will be coming out from there, so you just do a little line there, and the bottom lip pretty much joins straight onto his collar so we'll work on his collar next. It comes right around, and from there, we're going to come straight up, to basically here, and you can just put on his ear.
His ear comes up, just sort of level with the top of his eyes, roundabout, and you're going to come over and join onto the far eye there. From there, just put on just the outer part of the other ear, because that's all you can see of Brian, anyway, and that's Brian's face. From there, we should do his collar, so you've already got the top of the collar here, so you just follow around another line in the same sort of place, and there's his collar, a little dash there and a circle for the tag.
Now, for Brian's body, it's probably easiest if you do sort of like a circular type shape here. That's sort of going to represent the main part of his body and his legs, if you do just a couple of lines coming down off of the circle, that's his body. His feet are nice and easy, you just do a couple of lines like that, do them nice and lightly and we can thicken them up when we've got them in the right place.
So, moving on here, we do his toes. You've already got the outline of his feet drawn for his toes, you just need to do a couple of little lines like that, and they're done. Just thicken that foot up there, and his feet are finished.
Now, you can only see part of his arm here, so you're just going to come out, just take it back into the body, a nice little line like that. This bit here is going to not be the back of his body; it's going to be the back of his arm. So you're going to come down, then you're going to come in slightly because you've got fingers to do, so just thicken that up and then we're going to put a little line over there for a finger, and you can do another one and one more.
Then you come back up, a little like that, and the only thing missing now is his tail, of which we need to do just a little line like that, and that is Brian from Family Guy.
