How to Draw Johnny Test
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Johnny Test. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Johnny Test with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Johnny Test, start by drawing a rectangle, which will be the basic shape for Johnny Test's head. Draw it closer to the bottom of the page to leave room for his spiky hair.
Step 2: Next draw a curved line under the rectangle that looks like a wide letter U for the lower part of Johnny Test's face. Draw a vertical line that splits the shapes into two. Draw line closer to the left side. This is a construction line that will help you place Johnny Test's facial features later on.
Step 3: Now draw a curved line similar to a backwards letter C on the outside of the lower right corner of the rectangle. This is the basic shape for Johnny Test's ear.
Step 4: Draw two circles inside the rectangle and on either side of the vertical line for Johnny Test's eyes. Draw the left circle a tiny bit smaller because of the perspective.
Step 5: That's it for the initial sketch for the Johnny Test cartoon character! You have the basic Johnny Test shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 6: Johnny Test's nose is basically just a line that starts above the left eye, moves across a portion of the eye and ends where the vertical line meets the bottom of the rectangle. The line then follows the bottom of the rectangle to the left and curves down slightly toward the right eye to meet the vertical line. This is Johnny Test's nose.
Step 7: Draw in Johnny Test's eyebrows as long curved rectangles. Draw the left one right above his eye and make it meet the bridge of his nose. Draw the right eyebrow high above the eye at the top of the rectangle.
Step 8: Darken the shapes of Johny Test's eyes except for a bit of the top part. Draw a curved line across the inside of each eye to give Johnny Test that eyes half-closed, sly look.
Step 9: Draw two ovals inside each eye except for the top bit that's hidden behind Johnny Test's eyelids. Draw the pupil on the left slightly smaller than the right.
Step 10: Below Johnny Test's nose, draw two curved lines as his mouth. The shape should end up looking like a crescent moon on its side.
Step 11: Draw teeth inside of Johnny Test's mouth by drawing another curved horizontal line. Then draw a few vertical lines to indicate the separations of his teeth.
Step 12: Using the original rectangle shape and curved line as guides, draw in the rest of Johnny Test's head. When drawing the face, make sure it dips in a little toward the left eye and forms his cheek.
Step 13: The hair is a bit tricky, so this section about how to draw Johnny Test's hair is broken down in two parts. Darken in the line on top of the original rectangle guide. Before you reach the end of the original line, draw the line down closer to the right eye, move toward the ear and finally go up on a slant. Draw four lines on the side for detail.
Step 14: The top of Johnny Test's hair is spiky. Draw five spikes that resemble curved triangles minus the bottom. Draw triangles of different sizes. Use the image above for further reference when drawing Johnny Test's hair.
Step 15: Use the ear guide to tighten the shape of Johnny Test's ear. Male the bottom of the ear flat for style and draw a curved line (which looks like a backward question mark) within the ear to represent the inside of the ear.
Step 16: That's it! You now have a nice sketch of the Johnny Test cartoon character. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 17: For a more finished, inked look, carefully draw over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of Johnny Test! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Johnny Test drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Johnny Test drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color the spikes on his hair red and the rest of it yellow. Johnny Test's eyebrows are black, his eyes are light blue, and the small area inside his mouth is brown. His skin is a peach color, but if you don't have peach, improvise and use yellow-orange or light brown. Experiment! That's it! You now have a completed drawing of Johnny Test.
