Spongebob Square Pants is one of the most recognised and loved cartoon characters by children of all ages across the globe. Learn how to draw Spongebob with this easy step-by-step tutorial.
I'm going to show you how to draw Spongebob Square Pants. For the outside of the body, it's quite simple really, you draw basically a rectangular shape but you want it slightly wider at the top and the bottom. Just follow it along like that. Now, from there, you want to come down, and down on this line, and from here you go up. So join the two together and you're creating a 3D affect. That is the outline of Spongebob. So we're going to do a line here, which is going to be where his shirt is and we come up sideways. Now, we're going to do two circles for his eyes, slightly overlapped, so the second eye, you can't quite see all of it, and you're going to go like that. Fill in the pupils so you have two circles here. One and two and within those circles, you do a smaller circle and this is going to be shaded in, a little bit of white in the centre. Now, we're going to draw his nose which is bit like the shape of a sausage so you come off and up and that is the basic shape of his nose. You then move on to his mouth which is joined to his nose. It's quite simple, you just come off half way off his nose, maybe a little bit further, and a big smile right up to his eye, and on top of the crease of the mouth, you can put a C shape going over his eye, which is like a smile line and inside that, you just put three dots. Now, from the top of the mouth here, you're going to come down and you're going to come along and back up to the mouth like that, leaving enough space between the straight line you've drawn here and his mouth doing a little crease underneath. You're basically starting to get the shape of his face now. We put in his teeth. The lines that you go over like where I've drawn his tooth, you can actually, when you go over with pen, rub lines likes that off afterwards so that you wouldn't know they were there. You can put his tongue in and follow that, and shade his mouth in so you can see it better. And that's his face. So, the only thing left to do here is his eyelashes on top of his eyes, very thick, three on each. Now, we're going to move on to his shirt. From this straight line we drew originally, you're going to do two little lines down like that so you almost get a W shape. In the middle, you do a little square and then you're going to come down for his tie, drawing the lines like that. Now, halfway between this line and this line, we're going to draw another line. So, you've drawn a straight line straight along and make it into a 3D shape you're going to go along and up slightly. This represents his trousers. On his trousers, he has black marks so you do very thin rectangles like so. Now, we're going to do his legs. So at the bottom of his square pants, you're going to do two little sort of half rectangles like that, and you're going to do two quite straight lines which are his very thin legs, round them off on the bottom. From here, we're going to do shoes which are basically around like that. If you don't get it right the first time like that, you can always thicken it up and do it like that. The shoe is basically coloured in black so we'll shade that in in a minute. You want to leave a little circle for each shoe just to show a little bit of light reflecting off at the end. So when you shade in, just shade in round that circle. I'll shade it like that for now and same on the other. Shade round the circle and you've got his shoes. Just put a couple of lines on the legs and that's his stripy socks, and you've got his legs done. Now, there's not much left to do. We've got the arms. I think we'll do his arms hanging down by his sides. So we're going to do one arm there, so if you have one arm coming out there and another one here, so if you do a little bell shape for this one, from there, you do a straight line. On this one, do straight lines as well. For his hands, the middle of his hands is like a circle. From the bottom there, you draw two circles and then you do the fingers coming off from the circles. Again, a thumb, and you do three fingers like so. You can thicken it up around the edge of the hand. Spongebob has the spongy effect obviously on his face, so for this, all we do is a variety of different sized circles, going round, evenly spaced, some bigger, some smaller. Just to finish off his body, we've drawn very square so his body should look wavy because being a sponge, it's not square so you do a wavy line over the square shape only going to where his clothes start because of his square pants. When you've done that, you have got Spongebob Square Pants.
