How To Draw Quagmire
The video is about an artist from Essex named Jamie Sale. He shows, step by step, how to draw the famous cartoon character, Quagmire, from Family Guy. Using pencil, Jamie starts with basic circle shapes and moves on to draw the eyes, nose, mouth, chin and hair. He then shows how to properly shade in the mouth and hair.
Hello, my name's Jamie Sale. I'm a freelance cartoonist from Essex, and I'm going to be teaching you how to draw cartoons. This is how you draw Quagmire from Family Guy.
Alright, there are two parts to his head shape. The upper part of his head, there and the lower part of his head here, which you just draw using circles for now. Between these circles is the tiny little ear there.
So, well just put that in now. Okay, and then with these circles here, we just draw in his eye here first of all, which is just a circle and another eye here. This makes it bulge out of his head slightly.
His nose, it goes down and softly down there. As he's smiling, we'll put that expression in his eyes here. I sort of cut them off at the bottom, and his eyes are slightly squinted as well.
So, well put in his eyelids on the bottom and the top. Then we'll put in his pupils here, which you don't see them fully, but they come out from the bottom of his bottom eyelid there. We'll draw his head now.
This line is one of the circles that you don't want to follow that around just yet because we'll do the bottom part of his head, which comes up. I guess that's part of his part in there. It comes around and down to his sideburns.
And, that's when we go on the outside of it like that. Draw his cheeky eyebrows as well. Now for his mouth, it can be quite tricky because he's got very distinct shaped cheek.
This cheek basically comes out quite far from his head, and you need to use the circle as a bit of a guideline here, and it's sort of shaped like this. It's not totally round, it just sort of comes around in a smooth sort of angle and the same for this side, although it doesn't stick out as much. And, he's got a dimple in his chin there.
And, if were doing his mouth, it's going to be smiling and open. So, we start with his top lip, which comes around here like this. Up to his nose.
And, it comes all the way around here for his bottom lip. And, these are his teeth. That's where the inside of his mouth finishes there, but that's okay because it's going to come out a little bit and you just see a little portion of his tongue.
Now, his bottom of his chin here actually needs to come in a little bit. So, I slightly misjudged that. And, then go over it in pencil a little bit harder.
And, once you've pencilled it in, you can then go over the black bits and shade them in a bit, which in the case with Quagmire, is going to be the inside of his mouth and his hair. It's best when shading to keep the angle consistent because it makes it look a lot neater. And that is how you draw Quagmire. .
