The Narrated 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 big circle near the top of the paper as a guide for Casper the friendly ghost's head. First make four marks to determine the oval's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Make the width of the circle a tiny bit longer than the height. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Leave enough room at the bottom for the body.
Step 2: Below the circle, draw a curved line for the lower part of Casper's head. The curved part of the line should be on the left to form the cheek.
Step 3: Draw two curved, intersecting lines across the whole head as guides to help you place Casper's features later. Place the vertical line close to the left side of the head. Place the horizontal line close to the bottom edge of the first circle.
Step 4: On the lower, left side of the head, draw a small circle as a guide for the bottom of Casper's body. Pay attention to the size of the circle in relation to the head. Don't place the circle too far away or the body will be too long.
Step 5: Draw two long, sloping lines that connect the head to the circle at the bottom for the rest of the guide for Casper's body. The line on the bottom should be longer and more curved.
