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: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for Sandy Cheeks's head. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw a curved, horizontal line to help you place Sandy's facial features later. On top of the horizontal line, draw a curved, vertical line for another construction guide.
Step 3: Because Sandy Cheeks is a squirrel, she needs a suit and helmet to breathe underwater. Draw a circle around the head for the helmet by first making a small mark near the bottom edge of the head. High above the head, make another small mark. Make another small mark on either side of the head. Pay attention to the distance of the marks to Sandy's head. Now connect the marks using curved lines to complete the shape of the helmet. The circle for the head should be close to the bottom edge of the circle for the helmet.
Step 4: Draw the guide for Sandy's body by first making a small mark far down below the helmet. Now draw two long, vertical lines below the helmet, on the sides, for the sides of the body. Connect the mark to the vertical lines using a curved horizontal line to finish the guide for the body.
Step 5: On the right side of the body, draw an angled line similar to a greater-than sign (>) as a guide for the first arm. At the end of the line, draw a small circle as a guide for Sandy's hand.
