Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Sid the Sloth from Ice Age. 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 big upside-down triangle. Make the corners of the triangle round instead of pointy and sharp. The top side of the triangle should bulge up a bit. This triangle will be the guide for Sid's head.
Step 2: Draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal, across the triangle. The lines should cross each other near the middle of the triangle. These are construction lines that will help you place Sid's facial features later on.
Step 3: On the top corners of the triangle, draw two small circles as guides for the eyes. Sid has different-sized eyes that give him a wacky appearance, so draw the circle on the left a lot smaller than the one on the right.
Step 4: Draw a big circle sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on the left of the vertical construction line. The circle should overlap the vertical construction line on the left side a little. This will be a guide for Sid's nose.
Step 5: Below the horizontal construction line and under the nose, draw a guide for Sid's mouth. The shape of the mouth consists of two curved lines. The top line shouldn't bend that much, whereas the bottom line should bend a lot and have a shape similar to the bottom corner of the main triangle.
