Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Cleo de Nile from Monster High. 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 small circle near the top of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top part Cleo de Nile's head.
Step 2: Draw a curved line similar to the letter V under the circle as a guide for Cleo de Nile's jaw and chin. The sides of the line should angle a bit. These two combined shapes make the guide for the head.
Step 3: Under the head, draw two curved lines as guides for Cleo de Nile's neck and shoulders. Don't make the lines too far apart, otherwise Cleo will end up with wide shoulders.
Step 4: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. These will be construction lines that will help you place Cleo de Nile's facial features later on.
Step 5: Sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line, draw two small shapes similar to footballs as guides for the eyes. The shape on the left should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
