How to Draw Grunkle Stan
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Grunkle Stan from Disney Channel's Gravity Falls. 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 rectangle near the top half of the page as a guide for Grunkle Stan's head. The rectangle should tilt a little to the left. Leave enough room at the bottom for the rest of Grunkle Stan's body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the rectangle, one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical line should be closer to the right side, while the horizontal line should be somewhere near the middle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Grunkle Stan's facial features later on.
Step 3: Under the head, draw a big square as a guide for the top part of Grunkle Stan's body. The top of the square should be behind the head shape. The space from the bottom line of the head to the bottom line of the body should be about the same as the height of the head.
Step 4: Draw a couple of angled lines on either side of the body as a guide for Grunkle Stan's arms. The line on the left should bend near the middle and point down. The line on the right should bend in the middle and point up. Draw a small circle on the end of each line as a guide for the hands. Add five lines to the circle on the right for Grunkle Stan's fingers.
Step 5: Under the body, draw two more lines that bend a bit near the middle as guides forGrunkle Stan's legs. At the end of each line, draw a long oval as guides for the feet.
