Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Jake the dog from Cartoon Network's Adventure Time. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Jake from Adventure Time with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Jake, start with an oval near the top of the page to leave room for Jake's feet. You don't have to draw the oval perfectly. It's just a guide for Jake's head and body.
Step 2: Next, draw a horizontal line near the top of the oval and a vertical line near the left of the oval. When drawing the lines, bend them to contour to the shape of the oval. These will be construction guides that will help you place Jake's features later on.
Step 3: Right on top of where the two construction lines intersect, draw somewhat of a rounded square shape as a guide for Jake's muzzle.
Step 4: On top of the muzzle shape and on either "corner," draw a circle for Jake's eyes. Don't draw the bottoms of the circle, as they're hiding behind Jake's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw guides for Jake's arms and legs as curved lines. The left hand should curve up while the right goes outward then back in toward his body. Draw them just below the horizontal construction line. Draw Jake's legs as curved lines below his body.
