Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw James P. "Sulley" Sullivan from Disney•Pixar's Monsters, Inc. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by drawing a circle near the top of the page. This will be the basic shape for the top of Sulley's head. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line across the middle of the circle. Bend the line so that it contours to the shape. This will be the first construction line that will help you place Sulley's facial features later.
Step 3: Now draw a really big U-shaped arc under the circle as a guide for the lower part of Sulley's head. The arc should be almost as tall as the original circle. The ends of the arc should be placed at the ends of the horizontal construction line.
Step 4: Draw a long vertical line across the entire head shape. Bend the line so that is contours to the whole head. This is the second construction line that will help you place Sulley's facial features.
Step 5: Draw two small shapes similar to half circles as guides for Sulley's eyes. Draw these shapes close together, sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line.
