How To Draw Phineas
Matt Wood will show you how to draw Phineas in this Video Jug tutorial video, from the animated cartoon strip Phineas and Ferb. You will enjoy this character as well as the line-up of many others that Matt provides to you through VideoJug.
I'm going to draw Phineas from Phineas and Ferb. Basically, you want to start with the shape of his face, so if you come out here, we place a bit of a triangle to be honest. You have a straight line slightly going downward there.
Then you come down here and then you come back up for the mouth. You see, he's got a big smile and then you come out around, the only part, because you've got a big gap, because you've got to fit his teeth into his mouth later. In this time, I'll tell you that later.
Then you come down a tiny little bit at the bottom for his neck, then you're going to come up, and then we're just going to do just a little bit there for his ear there. There's a little bit there. This part of his head is about to wear the hair.
So, you want to come up and then you want to join it up to the line you did originally. Then, join it like that, then that's where you do his hair. So, his hair is basically just a spiky thing with a pointy shape.
So, you come off, and a few spikes. They don't need to be exact, they just sort of stick out every which way, yet you will need to decide really, and then you come back in here, and there are just a few dots here and that's basically his hair. His face is ready for the eyes.
Now, we're going to put the eyes on. So, the eyes are very large. So, the first one is going to go over the line that you've drawn for the face, and the second one comes off of that on to the back of the face.
So, you can only see part of it. Then we're just going to do some little eyebrows above and then we're going to fill in the pupils in the eyes, and so you just do something of an oval shape here, and this one, so you can only do part of it. Let's just do like that and you color them in.
Shade them in like this. You leave a little white there which is going to be like the light reflecting off the pupil, and there you have the eyes. Now, we're going to move on to the mouth.
So, we have got a big gap here we can easily fill the teeth in. So you can come and you take a straight line down and you just follow it up to the back of the mouth, and for the bottom one, you don't go here because you want to make room for the tongue. So, we just go in there like that.
And you're drawing this bit to there with one a curvy line and another line there for his tongue and we will shade it around. If you make a mistake with this one, it doesn't matter, because when you're shading around it, you can just color over the line that you don't really want, and we've got his face shape there. Moving on to his body, it's nice and simple to do his body.
So, if we just eventually do a couple of lines that come down there and one from there, and you round off on the bottom, that's going to be his t-shirt and then we've got a little rectangle that's going to be shorts, and a couple of little lines, two here, two there. They're going to be his legs. So, if we just move back up to the top of his body, we just do a little circle there and that's going to be his t-shirt and following this line down there, that's going to be the back of the arm of the t-shirt.
You just come down, you're just taking that up, so that can come around to the one you're working on. You come along about like that. He's got very thin arms, kind of level with his shorts, so if you follow along, just a straight line down, follow that down.
There you come into the finger and so literally if you drew one finger, you can draw the others because they're just basically all the same. Then come back to the back of the arm and light picking it up. The other arm, you can only see part of it, so we're going to come down like this and into the t-shirt, and the arm comes down.
So, you've got his arms there. Now, we just do a few stripes on his t-shirt. So, we just do some evenly spaced stripes.
So, we've got that there all over his arm and you've got the stripes. Now, we shall move onto the shorts which we've already got the ba
