Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Mabel Pines from Disney Channel's Gravity Falls. 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 with a circle near the top half of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the Mabel Pines' head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. The vertical line should be closer to the left side, and the horizontal line should be closer to the bottom. These will be construction lines that will help you place Mabel Pines' facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small circles sitting on top of the horizontal construction line as guides for Mabel Pines' eyes. The circles should be on either side of the vertical construction line.
Step 4: Below the eyes, where the two construction lines intersect, draw a tiny oval as a guide for Mabel Pines' nose. On the right side of the head, at the end of the horizontal construction line, draw an arc similar to a backward letter C as a guide fore Mabel Pines' ear.
Step 5: Under the head, draw a rectangle as a guide for Mabel Pines' torso. The height of the rectangle should be about the same as the height of the head.
