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: Start by drawing a circle near the middle of the paper as a guide for Max's head. First make four small marks to determine the circle's 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 bottle cap.
Step 2: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head as a guide to help you place the facial features of this character from Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas later on. On the top, left side, draw a short, curved, vertical line for another guide.
Step 3: On the top, left side of Max's head, draw a short, angled line as a guide for the first ear. On the top, right side of the head, draw another angled line as a guide for the other ear. This line should angle twice: once near the middle and again at the tip. Under the head, draw a line that's similar in shape to a curved letter V as a guide for the lower jaw.
Step 4: On the lower, right side of the head, draw a small circle as a guide for the front part of the body. Pay attention to the size of this circle compared to the head. To the right, draw a circle for the back of the body. Draw this circle bigger than the front body circle. Don't draw the body circles too close together.
Step 5: Draw two short lines to connect the head to the body and create the guide for the neck of this Dr. Seuss character. Use two longer lines to connect the middle circles together and finish the guide for Max's body.
