How To Draw Spongebob - Step No. 1

For beginners, to have your favorite cartoon pencil drawing is so easy once you have a still 2D picture of Spongebob.

Take a piece of paper (preferably a cheap A4 photocopy paper) and a drawing pencil set. (Do you know what is a drawing pencil set? Click here)

Select a nice place to sit. Make a cup of coffee or hot chocolate if you want.

How To Draw Spongebob - Step No. 2

With the picture of your favorite cartoon character, you can start a still sketches and produce your own favorite cartoon pencil drawing. Got one?

Spongebob's pencil sketch Take a HB or B grade graphite pencil. Use it to draw sketches of your cartoon pencil drawing. Start by sketching the whole part of your cartoon figure first.

Here's the magic part... Look at your still cartoon picture and start from the center of your paper. Sketch the whole body without looking at the paper! Then, stop looking at your sketch and compare it with your subject.

Ask these 2 important questions:-
  1. Does it has a correct size to be on your paper?
  2. Does it has a correct angle according to your cartoon picture?

If the answer is NOT to any of these questions...Erase your cartoon pencil drawing, and re-sketch your cartoon pencil drawing according to the correct size and angle.

Once you get that, then erase your entire sketch gently so that you can see only the trace of your cartoon sketch...

Based on the trace, draw a fine line according to your cartoon figure.
