How To Draw Nemo
A beginner's guide on how to draw Nemo, from the movie Finding Nemo. Jamie Sale guides the novice through the steps to drawing this fun character.
Hello, my name is Jamie Sale and I am a freelance cartoonist from Essex, and I am going to be teaching you how to draw cartoons. We are going to draw Nemo from Finding Nemo. When drawing Nemo, I would always start with the head which you start off as a circle.
Put another little circle there, as he has got slightly puffy cheeks, and another circle here which will represent his tail. Slightly smaller than the original circle for his head, and meet these circles by going inwards and downwards like that. These circles, that just sort of, guides to help you connect your cartoon character together, so do not use them as the actual thing to go around, because you may need to adjust it.
Right, that is the basic shape for Nemo. He has got one of his little arms coming out, coming out there like that, and then above his head like so. His eyes are shaped quite strangely.
They are not circular as such, they are kind of, there are three, it is like a triangle but it is sort of smoother. Alright, his head is actually going to have to extend out a lot more here. So this is why the circles are just as a guide only to start you off.
And here's an iris, and then a pupil and the same with this eye as well, an iris and a pupil. You can't really see it that well at this stage, but we will define that in a bit, very shortly. Then he has his mouth, as he is a fish he does not have a nose.
Just sort of a simple shaped mouth with another layer or another line there to represent his teeth. His head is probably a bit smaller here. Alright, so we will go over all of these features a bit more detailed with the pencil.
He has some patterns on his body, I will show you where to put them in, in a second. I will just finish up going in over the outline. Alright, first of all on the side here, that needs to be sort of blacked off at the edge, and the same on this part, and we will see here his back is shaded in, and with his tail as well, and around the edge of this part, and again for this one, and he has a pattern coming around his head here as well.
It kind of loops around again itself almost twice over. They are quite thick as well, and we have got the bottom of this, and this, and just a couple of more patterns around the rest of his body. And that is how you draw Nemo. .
