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 sketching a small circle near the top of the page. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s only a guide for Stewie’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the head, one vertical and one horizontal. The horizontal line should come out of the circle to help you draw Stewie's head in the next step. These construction lines will also help you place Stewie’s facial features later on.
Step 3: Stewie’s head is the shape of a football, so draw two curved lines on either side of the circle that resemble triangles bulging at the sides. The final product should look similar to an eyeball.
Step 4: Draw two small circles for Stewie's eyes. Place the circles near the outer edges of the original circle right on top of the horizontal construction line.
Step 5: Below the Stewie's head, draw a rectangle with the top missing as a guide for the body. The height of the rectangle should be equal in size to the height of Stewie's head.
Step 6: Inside the rectangle, draw a vertical line and a horizontal line as construction lines. The vertical line should be closer to the left and the horizontal line closer to the bottom.
Step 7: On the right side of the rectangle, right above the horizontal construction line, draw a curved line similar to a letter U with a horizontal line inside as a guide for Stewie Griffin's arm. Draw another horizontal line near the bottom of the rectangle to help you place Stewie's feet.
Step 8: That's it for the initial sketch! You have the basic Stewie Griffin shape, 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.
Step 9: Darken Stewie's eyes, and inside each draw two horizontal lines for Stewie's upper and lower eyelids. Draw a small circle inside each eye for his pupils. Above each eye, draw an angled line for Stewie's eyebrows.
Step 10: Below the area where the construction lines meet, draw an angled line similar to a "less than" sign <. Below Stewie's nose, draw a curved line that looks like and arrow pointing left for Stewie's mouth.
Step 11: Darken the football shape of Stewie's head. On either end of it draw a small curved line similar to a letter C for his ears. Draw a few lines within Stewie's ears to indicate the inner structure.
Step 12: Draw Stewie's hair as nine tiny curved lines above his head. Draw the one in the middle first above the vertical construction line. Then draw the ones above his ears, then just fill in the remaining six.
Step 13: Use the initial lines as guide to draw the right arm. Attach the arm to Stewie's head and angle it at the bottom to create his sleeves. Draw a few curved lines at the bottom of the U-shape to create his fingers.
Step 14: Again use the initial lines as guide to draw Stewie's body. Round out his torso a bit and the bottom cuffs of his pants too.
Step 15: The left arm is mainly behind Stewie's body, so only draw the visible portion of it. Angle the line to create the sleeve and draw a curved line for his thumb.
Step 16: Draw Stewie's shoes using the bottom portion of the rectangle as a guide. Make them curve out toward the left since Stewie is facing that way.
Step 17: To draw Stewie's overalls, first draw a small circle on either side of the vertical construction line. Above each circle draw two vertical lines to create the suspender portion of the overalls. Then draw the three remaining lines to finish them.
Step 18: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of Stewie Griffin from Family. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look, or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 19: For a more finished, inked look, carefully draw over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of Stewie Griffin! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Stewie drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Stewie Griffin drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color Stewie's skin peach. If you don’t have peach, improvise! Stewie's shirt and the buttons on his overalls are yellow. The actual overalls are red, and his shoes are light blue. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of Stewie Griffin from Family Guy.
