How To Draw Stewie Griffin
This video provides step-by-step instructions from a freelance cartoon artist for drawing cartoon character Stewie Griffin from Family Guy.
I'm going to show you how to draw Stewie Griffin. To start with Stewie, you want to draw a shape roughly like a rugby ball, not quite so pointy on the ends. That's the rough outline of the shape of his face.
Now, on either side, if you just do two little marks like that, they are the shape of his ears. For his eyes, they're in the bottom half of his face and they're very wide apart, so if you draw one circle here and another one over here, there are his eyes. He's got evil looking eyes, so we're going to do a downturn on the top - a couple of straight lines there, and his eyes are sort of beady looking, so we're going to do the half shut look that he normally has.
So we're going to draw those like that, and let me just fill in the pupils with his stare. That's the eyes done. Now, moving onto the nose, all he's got for a nose is literally just a little line like that and that's his nose done.
The mouth - he doesn't smile very much, so we're going to downturn - and a little line over the bottom like that, a curved line. His hair is nice and simple so we'll just thicken in the top of his head so you can see a little bit better. His hair is just straight lines coming in from the top of the shape, and that's basically Stewie Griffin's face.
Moving onto his body, the easiest way to do it is like a rectangle coming off the center of his face down sort of here. It's a little bit long so we'll just shorten it up a touch, and just come up a little bit and do another line because his bottom piece is going to represent his shoes. Just do two lines out of this one here and we start with two circles, not that far down from his face.
These are going to be the buckles on his dungarees, and two straight lines, one you just thicken up there and that one, and another one here, and one like that going up towards his face, and then just join at the buckles like that. Now, putting his arms on next will probably be easiest. So from the side of his face, you come down on that side, and down on this side.
So you have two curvy little lines there, and a straight one on the bottom and a straight one on the bottom of that one, and back up a little bit and this one just joins onto his body. His hands are very small, so not that detailed to draw, you just need to come outwards, a little line for a thumb, some downward lines that curve in, and copy it again and again for his fingers. For the other side, do the same, just reverse.
Now, his dungarees here need to come in to join his arm, so from the buckle we've drawn there, if you come in you just join that to his arm like that. Now, in this rectangular shape we've got here, we separate his legs by drawing a line here. And in the one here that already shows us where his feet are going to go, we're going to do two little shapes for his feet.
His feet are not very detailed, so very, very easy to draw, and that's his feet, like that. If you just round off his trousers so they don't look quite so square, so when you come down from the top of your straight line here, you can just sort of come out a little bit and just round it from the bottom, and the same on the other side, and round it off again, and there we have Stewie Griffin. .
