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 big oval near the top of the paper as a guide for Tom Nook'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 are farther apart than the marks for the top and bottom. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Leave enough room at the bottom for this Animal Crossing character's body.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line across the oval as a construction guide to help you place Tom Nook's facial features later. Draw a curved, vertical line for another guide. Place this line closer to the left edge of the head.
Step 3: On the top, left side of the head, draw a short, wide arc as a guide for the first ear. Draw another short, wide arc on the top, right side of the head as a guide for Tom Nook's other ear.
Step 4: Below the head, draw a circle as a guide for Tom Nook's body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle the same way you drew the first oval. The marks for the height and width of the circle should be equal in distance. Don't draw the circle too far down and pay attention to the circle's size in relation to the head.
Step 5: Draw two short, sloping lines that connect the head to the body to complete the guide for the torso. Under the body, draw two square-like, angled lines as guide for Tom Nook's shorts. Don't make these shapes too long.
