Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Sadness from Disney•Pixar's Inside Out. 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 big circle near the top of the page as a guide for Sadness' head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room at the bottom for the rest of her body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across Sadness' head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape of the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place the facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small oval-like shapes as guides for Sadness' eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The oval on the left should be smaller because of perspective.
Step 4: Below the head, draw a long curved line as a guide for Sadness' body. The line should be similar in shape to an oval that's sitting behind the head.
Step 5: Inside Sadness' body, on the lower left side, draw a small circle as a guide for her two hands clasped together.
