We're going to draw Lois from Family Guy now. So, we start with a circle for the eye, first eye, and we're going to do another circle a little bit further over. So, we do another one there - that'll be a second eye. A nose is nice and easy, it's just literally bump that comes down just slightly over the second eye and back in and just a little bit of a line at the bottom. Moving back to her eyes, we should fill in the eyelids. It's just a straight line across there and along here. But you do a little bit come off there, off the side of the eye, for her eyelashes. We fill in the dots for her eyes. Moving on to her mouth, initially, if we just do the smile like that, then we fill in the lips over the top which is easier. So, you can just do the mouth there and come up for the lip and then this one like that. So, you've got the basic inside of her face. Now, we're going to do the outside, so we come out with the cheek, come out in a curvy line around here that comes in just below the mouth a little bit. If you don't get it in the right place, your drawing pencil, you can always move it along a little bit just to get it where you want it. Tuck that up a bit. We're going to go up and do the other side of her face before we move on to her body. Should come up and around, come level with the bottom of the nose, and you do a circle for her earring, and then we're going to curve another line to come on up here just above her eyes. You do a curvy line there, and then we're going to do the fringe in her hair. So, you do one line curved like that and another one that comes down just nearly touching the eye like that. From here, move from the center of the parting of the hair, and you come down, round about the side of the face, and you come just skimming the cheek, and you come back in. This is the hair there. And for the other side of the hair, coming off of this line here, you come up and you come around, you fall in, and you come to roughly where the earring is and then you come back in to the face. If the line is slightly high or low, it won't really make much difference so long as it's roughly in the right place. Now, moving on to her body and neck, the lines are already here for her neck, and we should just join the line to that one really for the collar of her shirt which is like that. From there, you come off and you do just a little curvy line there, you come up, and just join in behind the back of her neck there. Same on the other side, you do a curve like that and then we're going to come down from the shoulder here, and you just do a rounding curve like that - we come all the way down. This is going to go down to her shirt, to her hand, and everything. And then you come down on the inside just a short distance from this one down and like that. I'm going to leave it like that for a minute. We'll move over to the other side now and move towards the front of the shirt - it should come out and then back down and the shirt, at the bottom, comes out here, for her hips and her waist, and you want to do a thing like an upside-down V shape. We've got a little bit more room here for the arm. We've got the basic outline of the shirt. Now, if you want to do the middle of the shirt where the buttons are, just follow this line down and join it onto the bottom. Just do a few circles for the buttons. Now, for the outside of the arm, you come along - you can't really see much of it and the hand's going to be on the hip anyway, so you'll only see a small amount and you come in here. The shirt's going to be rolled up so you've got rolled up sleeves - two little lines there - and the arm will come in there, a straight line just to represent it's on her hip. Now, this arm, we need to separate the shirt from the arm. So we're going to do a line here, a little bit higher or lower doesn't really make a difference, again. Then we're going to do the rolled up sleeves. Same as the other side, but you can see both sides on these. You do it round like that. As you come down here, you can bring it in a little bit more to the wrist. Just thicken it up so you know which line you're working with. And you're going to come down this line here for the hand. You do the fingers: come in there, do another finger, and one more finger round, and then on this one you come up and you bump out for the side of the hand, and just join it onto the arm. Slightly back here, you can see where the shirt comes back here, so the line continues on. You come from there and just follow it up, just not touching the paper so you can see, and that's where the shirt will come out, and you just join back up with the body. Now, you can come down here, which is the leg, and a line here to represent the other leg, and down there, and I think we're just about finished here - just thicken up a couple of these lines. And that is how to draw Lois from Family Guy.
