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 so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw a big oval near the middle of the paper as a guide for Buttercup's head. First make four marks to determine the oval's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Make sure that the marks for the sides of the oval (the width) are farther apart than the marks for the top and bottom (the height) of the oval. With every step, sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line across the oval as a construction guide to help you place Buttercup's facial features later. Draw a curved vertical line for another construction guide. Place the vertical line a bit closer to the right edge of the head. Curve the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the oval.
Step 3: Below the head draw a small square-like shape as a guide for the Buttercup's body. Pay attention to how small this guide is in relation to the big oval for the head.
Step 4: Under the head, on either side, draw two long, curved, sloping lines as guides for Buttercup's arms. Pay attention to the length and position of these lines in relation to the head and body. On the lower, left side of the body, draw a short, slightly tilted vertical line as a guide for the first leg. To the right, draw a long, slightly tilted vertical line as a guide for the other leg.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing.
