Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Agnes from Universal Pictures' Despicable Me. 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 by drawing a circle near the bottom of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Agnes's head. Leave room at the top for the tall pony tail.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape of the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Agnes's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small shapes similar to half-circles as guides for Agnes's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. Pay attention to the placement of the shapes in relation to the construction lines.
Step 4: On the lower left side of the head, draw a C-shaped line as a guide for Agnes's ear.
Step 5: Draw a long curved line on top of Agnes's head as a guide for the front part of the hair. The line should start at the top of the ear guide, move above the main circle and end on the top right side.
