Step 5: Draw a long line below the horizontal construction line. Underneath that line, draw a wide U-shaped curve. This will be Elmo's mouth.
Step 6: That's it for the initial sketch of Elmo from Sesame Street and Elmo's World! You have the basic Elmo shape, so now you will 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 7: Darken in his the shape of Elmo's nose, and then his eyes. When you darken in Elmo's eyes, don't draw over the lines that overlap his nose because his eyes sit behind his nose. Draw two circles in the center of Elmo's eye circles and shade them in, leaving a small circle in the corner white to represent glare. These are Elmo's pupils.
Step 8: Now tighten Elmo's mouth. Elmo is a furry character, so when you do his upper lip, draw it using a series of curves while still following the main shape. Draw his bottom lip as a plain U shape without the series of furry curves.
