The written step-by-step video tutorial:
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: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for the Grinch's body. To draw the circle, first make four small marks to determine its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a lid.
Step 2: Draw a vertical line across the circle as a construction line that will help you place the Grinch's facial features later. Curve the line so that it contours to the shape of the circle. Draw a curved, horizontal line near the middle for another construction line.
Step 3: On top of the head, draw a short line that slopes to the right as the guide for the hat. Draw a line that curves down toward the inside of the Grinch's head for the other side of the hat. Connect the lines at the bottom to close the triangle-shaped guide for the hat.
Step 4: To the left of the Grinch's head, draw a big circle using the four-marks method as a guide for the body. Don't place this circle too far off to the left, otherwise the Grinch's torso will be too long. Pay attention to the size of this circle. It should be a lot bigger than the head.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that connect the circles to create the guide for the Grinch's torso. The line at the top should be long and curved, while the one at the bottom should be shorter and straighter. Draw a really long, curved line from the hat to the left side of the body as a guide for the bag.
