How to Draw Jack-Jack from The Incredibles VIDEO & Step-by-Step Pictures
Jack-Jack's sister Violet once said, “The only normal one is Jack-Jack, and he's not even toilet trained!” But Jack-Jack, the youngest member of the Parr family, does show his incredible powers in the movie The Incredibles. He inherited super powers from his super hero mother, Helen Parr (Elastigirl) and Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible), whose primary super powers are stretching and strength, respectively. The Parr family eventually discover that Jack-Jack's primary power is shape-shifting. He can burst into flames, turn into a demon-like creature, change his skin to metal, teleport, duplicate himself, and shoot lasers from his eyes.

The written step-by-step video tutorial:
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: Draw a big circle near the top of the paper as a guide for Jack-Jack's head. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a cup, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw two intersecting lines across the head, one horizontal and one vertical. Curve the lines a bit so that they contour to the circle. These are construction lines that will help you place Jack-Jack's facial features later on.
Step 3: On the left side of the head, draw a C-shaped line as a guide for Jack-Jack's first ear. Add a similar line on the other side for the other ear. The ears should be below the horizontal construction line.
Step 4: Below the head, draw another circle as a guide for Jack-Jack's body. Draw this circle like the head. Start with four small marks, and then connect the marks using curved lines. Notice how much smaller this circle is in relation to the head.
Step 5: On the left side of the body, below the head, draw two sloping, curved lines as guides for the arm. Pay attention to the length of the lines. At the end of the lines, draw a small circle as a guide for Jack-Jack's hand.
Step 6: On the right side of the body, draw two lines that slope upward as guides for the other arm. At the end of the lines, draw a small circle as a guide for Jack-Jack's other hand.
Step 7: Under the body, on the left side, draw two vertical lines as guides for Jack-Jack's leg. At the bottom of those lines, make the sides wider as a guide for the foot.
Step 8: Draw two more lines under the body, on the left side as guides for Jack-Jack's other leg. The bottom part of the line on the right should angle outward to create the guide for the foot.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing.
Step 9: Draw a small arc sitting on the horizontal construction line, to the left of the vertical line for the first eye. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. Add a small line at the bottom to close off the shape. Add another arc to the right of the vertical construction line for the second eye. Pay attention to the size of Jack-Jack's eyes in relation to the head. They should also be pretty close together. When you get the position and size of the eyes right, darken the lines.
Step 10: Inside each of Jack-Jack's eyes, draw a small circle for the irises. The irises should be pretty close to the inner edges of the eyes. Inside each iris, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of each iris, draw another small circle and shade them in for the pupils.
Step 11: Draw a small, curved line directly where the construction lines meet for the top of Jack-Jack's nose. Underneath, draw a couple shorter, curved lines for the nostrils.
Step 12: Use the horizontal construction line as a guide to draw the bottom part of Jack-Jack's mask. Follow the basic path of the guide but make the line for the mask wavier. High above the eyes, draw a couple of arcs for the top part of the mask. The top of the mask should follow the curvature of the eyes. The line should dip and meet in the middle. Connect the top and bottom part of the mask using curved lines on the sides.
Step 13: Under the nose, draw a short, curved line for the top part of Jack-Jack's mouth. Draw another curved line underneath the dips even lower, for the bottom part of the mouth. Add short smile lines on the corners of the mouth. Inside the mouth, draw two curved lines for the tongue.
Step 14: Use the C- shaped lines on the sides of the head as guides to draw Jack-Jack's ears. Darken the guides but make the shapes a bit more angular. Inside each ear, draw an angled line for the inner structure.
Step 15: Use the main circle as a guide to draw Jack-Jack's head. Darken the top edge of the circle to create the shape of the head. Follow the basic path of the bottom edge of the circle to draw the rest of the head. Make the side narrower than the circle. The bottom should almost be pointy for the chin.
Step 16: On top of the head, draw a couple of lines that curve up to a pointy tip for Jack-Jack's hair.
Step 17: Use the two sloping lines on the left side of the body as guides to draw Jack-Jack's first arm. Darken the guides but make them wavier to represent cloth.
Step 18: Add a small line to the top of the initial circle to create the cuff. Darken the lower edge of the circle to create the fist. Add a curved line on the right for Jack-Jack's folded fingers.
Step 19: Darken the sloping lines on the right side to create Jack-Jack's second arm. Make the lines wavier for the cloth. Darken the lower, left edge of the small circle for the cuff.
Step 20: Darken the bottom edge of the small circle for the bottom of the hand. At the top, draw a short, arc for the small thumb. Draw a series of longer, curved arcs along the right edge of the small circle for the fingers. Jack-Jack's fingers should overlap a bit, and they should gradually get smaller toward the bottom.
Step 21: Darken the sides of the initial circle that's under the head to create the body. Add a few curved lines inside to emphasize the shape of Jack-Jack's belly.
Step 22: Darken the guide on the lower, left side to create Jack-Jack's first leg. Make the lines curvier and add a line inside the foot.
Step 23: Darken the guide on the lower, right side to create Jack-Jack's second leg. Make the lines wavier as you darken them for a more cloth- like texture.
Step 24: For a more finished look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker.
Step 25: After inking, get rid of the pencil mark s with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your Jack-Jack drawing using color pencils, markers or crayons! Color the skin peach. If you don't have peach, use yellow- orange or light brown. Use yellow for the hair and black for the mask. As you add the black, push lighter on a section next to the eye on the right to represent shine. Add black on the collar, cuffs and soles of the feet.
Use red for the rest of the onesie. Add the color lightly at first, and then gradually build up to the level of darkness that you like. Don't overlap the red with the black because you're Jack-Jack drawing may get smudged. Add a bit of brown on top of the red to create shadows and give the figure more dimension. Add the shadows on the bottom and left side to indicate that the light source is coming from the top, left. Use a mixture of dark blue and light blue for Jack-Jack's eyes. Use dark brown for the inside of the mouth and pink for the tongue.
