How to Draw Poof
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Poof from Nickelodeon's The Fairly OddParents. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: When learning how to draw Poof, 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 big circle near the middle of the page. This will be the basic shape for Poof's head/body. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. These will be construction lines that will help you when you are learning to draw Poof's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two circles sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. These will be guides for Poof's eyes. The circles should be close together, and they should take up almost all the room within the quarter circle.
Step 4: On the lower sides of the circles, draw an arc as a guide for each of Poof's arms. The shape of the arc should be similar to a sideways letter U. The arc on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 5: On top of the hand on the left, draw a guide for Poof's wand/rattle. To draw the guide, draw a circle that's about the same size as one of Poof's eyes, a line under it and another smaller circle.
