How to Draw Garfield
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Garfield. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Garfield with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Garfield, start by drawing a big oval near the middle of the page. This will be the basic shape for Garfield's head.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line near the left side of the main oval and a horizontal line below the middle of the oval. When drawing the lines, curve them so they follow the contour of the oval. These will be construction lines that will help you place Garfield's features later on.
Step 3: You have Garfield's basic face shape, so now you can tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 4: Draw in Garfield's nose as small oval right where the construction lines meet.
Step 5: Now draw Garfield's eyes. They are tall ovals that sit on top of the horizontal construction line behind his nose. Draw the one on the right so it grazes the vertical construction line and the top part of his head. The left eye is the exact same shape, but only draw in the left side of it. The rest of the left eye hides behind the right eye because of the perspective.
