Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Ness from the Earthbound and Super Smash Brothers video games. 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 of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Ness's head. Leave enough room at the bottom for his body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the head, one vertical and one horizontal. The end result should be similar to crosshairs on a scope. These will be construction lines that will help you place Ness's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw a square under Ness's head as a guide for the top part of the body. The square should be a bit smaller than the circle.
Step 4: Add an angled line under the square as a guide for Ness's shorts. First draw the two lines on the sides coming out of the bottom corners of the square. Then draw the lines that come in toward the middle. Before those two lines meet, draw a tiny upside-down V shape.
Step 5: Draw a line on the left side of the body with a small circle at the end. On top of the circle, draw two smaller lines. This will be a guide for Ness's arm and hand with the peace sign. Draw another small angled line and circle on the right side as a guide for Ness's other arm.
