Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Mike Wazowski from Disney•Pixar's Monsters Inc. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
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: Start by drawing a circle near the middle of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Mike Wazowski’s head/body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. The horizontal line should dip a little in the middle. The end result will look like the crosshairs on a scope. These construction lines will help you place Mike Wazowski's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw a small circle sitting on top of the horizontal construction line as a guide for Mike Wazowski's single eye. The vertical line should split the circle evenly in two.
Step 4: Under the horizontal construction line, draw a shape similar to a sideways letter D as a guide for Mike Wazowski's mouth.
Step 5: On either side of the body, draw two angled lines as guides for Mike Wazowski's hands. The line on the left should point up, and the other should drop down to the side of the body. Draw a small circle at the end of each line for this Monsters Inc character's hands. Draw three small lines to the circle on the left for the fingers.
