Now, we're going to draw Chris from Family Guy. Again, we should start with the eyes as always and one over here and then we're going to go for the nose. The nose, literally, is just a bit of a down turn shape like that and you can't really go wrong with it. It's pretty easy. His eyes are sort of always half shut (he's always half asleep) so we're going to do two cross-lines in there and pupils on the bottom like that. Now, his mouth is actually quite a long way down from the bottom of his nose, you want to come down just to- I would say about here. So, you go a fair distance and you just do a mark like that with his chin underneath, just like a little "W" shape. Now, that's basically the inner part of his face. So from here, you're going to come out from the eye and you're going to come around and you're going to come under and you are going to stop right about there because we've got his hair to do. So if you follow up level with sort of, I would say the bottom of his eye, you're going to put in an ear so you just put a small mark in there and from there we're going to put an earring in the bottom, so you just come over to the ear and just do two little half-circles like that. The hair, we are going to do poking down under of his baseball cap first, so we got to do a couple little lines coming down there and there, just goes back all over the front of the ear, and then we're going to do the bottom hair coming down towards the neck that we drew a minute ago, and then you've got to come down like that. The hair, really, if you get it in a slightly different place, it doesn't matter because obviously it's not exact. So you've got to come up around and when you get level with the lines you've drawn here, then you just stop because now we're going to put his cap in. Now, first of all, we're going to put a line straight over here like that. That's going to be the base of the cap. Then we'll put the peak on in a minute. So, the hat comes up here - you're going to come up and make a wavy line here, and you're going to go down over here like that. This part of the cap is black so we'll put a line in, and we'll just shade that in quickly. So now, we've got the shape of the cap, but we just haven't got the peak. Now, the peak comes down partially over his eyes, so you'll want to come along here, and along there, you know that I was picking it up so you can see it a little better, and like that, and the edge of the cap just comes over here towards his eye. Now, over this side while we're over here with the cap, we should put on just the other line from his hair so we should come down level with his face and just a little bit at the bottom like that, and we've got Chris's face. So now, we shall move on to his arms and the top of his body. So you come sort of quite high here, up above his mouth, his mouth's over here so come up a little bit higher, because you sort of round his shoulders (he's a typical teenager sort of leaning forward and slumping around the house sort of thing). So, we shall do a line like that, and that's just the edge of his t-shirt. For his arm, we're going to come down here, follow it down. He's only got three fingers that you can actually see, so we should just come in like that. That's going to represent the first finger, then you kind of come in for the second finger, and the same again for the third finger. Come up and you should put a bump here like that for his hand. And this bit here drawn up to that bit, making it come out, and back in, like that. Now, move over to the other side of the body (let's just thicken this line up here with his t-shirt at his neck) you're going to come over and get sort of level with where his hair is here. You come down and then you're going to come out for his stomach, touching it up, and we're only going to do the top of the body so we're going to draw this line along to his hand, and follow it along and it comes out, just follow it along and it comes out there and just join it up with his back here like that. And for his arm - we've only got one more arm left to do! We can only see part of the arm because the body is in the way so just come down level with the body and come back in and in this part of the arm sitting behind his belly just come down like that. And that is how you would draw Chris from Family Guy!
