Professional Freelance Cartoonist, Mark Wood is phenomenal in this easy-to-follow tutorial on how to draw Lisa Simpson!
For Lisa Simpson, you start exactly the same as you have with the others: with the eyes, so again, the initial circle for the first eye, and the circle for the second. The nose again is the same as the other characters, where you just come out a little while like that and back around. Let me put the dots in the eyes in now, instead of doing them later.
For the mouth on Lisa, you don't want to come straight down, but you want to come out. So, you come out from the nose, only a small way, just a short line and then you come back in for the smiley mouth. You come around about level with the eye, and then you put the little mark like that for the side of the mouth.
For the lip, you just probably about half way along the length of the mouth, you put like a little bump out and then you come down. Now, before we go onto her body, we're going to do the side of her face and her ears, so you do a line up here and a little C shape which is going to be her ear, just like that and another little C again for her other ear. Now, her hair is sort of like, sort of a starry-ish type shape, so you want to come down just below the ear that you've already just drawn and sort of come out in a pattern like this.
It doesn't matter if they're not 100 percent straight because that isn't really going to make a difference when the picture is actually finished, so just come up, but do faint lines just in case you make a mistake - that way, you can always just go over it with a thicker line and change it. And as you come around, you want to come on to the side of her face and do a little bump like that. On top of her eyes, while we're on her face, we should do her eyelashes which are lines that come off of the top of the eyes like this, four or five on each eye is plenty.
And just thicken the neck up a little bit there. For the beads that go on the neck, very much like Marge's, you can just draw circles that touch each other, and come around like that, and the two that are partly obscured, you just do a little half circle on the side because these are hidden behind her neck. Now, we're going to move onto her body and her arms.
So if we start with the arm, you come out from the back of the beads and you just do like a curvy line like this, and then do another one just a short way in from that and follows around, and that's going to be her arm. And on the end, if you do just a couple of lines that come out and back in, and then do another line that comes out touching that one, and the same again and the same again, those are her fingers. But on the last one, you don't want to come up straight because you've got the side of the hand, so you come around and you then just do a little bump before you join onto the arm, and that's her hand, and fingers.
For her chest and her dress, you are going to come down like this, and the dress comes out at the bottom so you want to come down with the line and swing out make it just a little curved line for the bottom of the dress. And from the arm that you have drawn, come out on the back side of that again. And the dress is basically the similar sort of pattern as her hair, but it's just smaller, so you just come up and down, up and down, until you get to the front and you just join it up like that.
And for the dress, then you come along the top here, along to the arm, and that is the dress finished. Put the other arm on here while we are up this way and you come down and do like a little curvy line and we're going to go onto the fingers, which she has got four fingers on her hand not five. So, you do just a little digit like that with a little half and another one like that, we're going to do her waving so we do the fingers slightly apart, and that and one more.
And from here, we're going to do a little bump for the side of the hand and then you want to come down with this line and join it onto the body like that. Now, we've just got the legs left to do. So, we should do a couple of these l
