Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw The Simpsons cartoon character Bart Simpson. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: When learning how to draw The Simpsons' character Bart Simpson, 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 your Bart Simpson drawing by drawing a shape that looks like a can with the sides bending in slightly. Add a smaller can shape at the bottom left side of the bigger shape. This will be Bart Simpson's head and neck.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line down the head shape that is in between the center and the right side of the shape. Draw two horizontal lines. One should be slightly below the top of Bart Simpson's head and the other below the middle of his head. These are construction lines that will help you when you're learning how to draw this cartoon character's features later on.
Step 3: Now learn how to draw this The Simpsons character's eye guides. Now draw a circle to the left of the vertical construction line. Place it so that the bottom horizontal construction line bisects it evenly in two. Draw another slightly smaller circle to the right of the first. The right circle should overlap it and come out of the right side of the head. The two circles should look like a Venn diagram. These will be Bart Simpson's eyes.
Step 4: Right below the right eye, draw an oval. The top left side of this oval should graze the left eye, and the right side of the oval should almost touch the head shape. This will be Bart Simpson's nose. Draw a C shape on the left side of his head in between the bottom horizontal construction line and the bottom of the head shape. This will be Bart Simpson's ear.
Step 5: You have now learned how to draw the initial sketch of Bart Simpson from The Simpsons cartoon! You have the basic Bart Simpson shape, so now you will go in and tighten your drawing. When learning how to draw this The Simpsons character from now on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
