Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw The Count from Sesame Street. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing The Count with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw The Count, start with a circle in the middle of the page. This will be the basic shape for The Count's head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines (One… two. Two intersecting lines! Ah ah ah!) across the circle, with one vertical and one horizontal. When drawing the lines, curve them a little to follow the shape of the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place The Count's features later on.
Step 3: Now draw two circles on either side of the vertical line that sit on top of the horizontal line. Draw the right circle closer to the vertical line because of the perspective. These are basic shapes for The Count's eyes. Below the horizontal construction line, draw a big shape that looks like a capital letter D on its side. This will be The Count's mouth.
Step 4: On either side of his head, draw two angles that end up looking like triangles. These will be The Count's ears. In the middle of his face, draw a diamond shape that starts at the top of his eyes and goes down into his mouth. This will be The Count's nose.
Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch of The Count from Sesame Street! You have the basic shape for The Count, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
