How to Draw The Joker
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing the Joker with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series, start with an oval in the middle of the page. You don't have to draw the oval perfectly. This is just a guide for the Joker's head.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line near the right side of the oval and a horizontal line near the top. Draw the lines so they curve and contour to the shape of the oval. These are construction lines that will help you place the Joker's features later on.
Step 3: Below the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line draw two shapes similar to upside-down triangles as guides for the Joker's eyes.
Step 4: Draw an angled line similar to a triangle on the right side of the vertical construction line for the Joker's nose. To draw the Joker's ear, draw a curved line similar to the letter C on the left side at the end of the horizontal construction line.
Step 5: Draw a curved line right below the Joker's nose making sure it extends to the right of his face but doesn't overlap his nose. Draw another similar-looking curve below the first. This will form Joker's mouth. The end result should look like a crescent moon on its side.
