Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Dexter from Cartoon Network's Dexter's Laboratory. A new 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 top of the page. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s only a guide for Dexter’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 on the right side just a little bit. These construction lines will help you place Dexter’s facial features later on.
Step 3: Below the horizontal construction line and on the right side of the vertical line, draw an angled line for Dexter's nose. The line is similar to a triangle missing a side or a greater-than sign (>).
Step 4: Draw two arcs or half circles that resemble wide letter Us under the horizontal construction line as guides for Dexter's eyes. The arc on the right side of the vertical construction line is behind the nose, so don’t draw over the nose.
Step 5: Under the head draw a line that resembles a square with the top missing as a guide for Dexter's body.
