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 circle near the top of the paper as a guide for Homer Simpson's head. First make four 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 circular object like a coin or a lid.
Step 2: Draw a couple of lines on the sides of the circle for the bottom of Homer Simpson's head. The lines should almost be as long as the length of the circle. Close off the shape at the bottom using a short, curved line.
Step 3: Below the head, draw a bigger circle as the guide for the body using the four-marks method too. The top mark should be below the head. Leave a small space between the head and this circle. This circle should be about as big as the height of the two combined head shapes. Don't draw this circle too far below the head or your Homer Simpson will be too tall.
Step 4: Draw a long, vertical line across the head, close to the left side, as a guide to help you place Homer Simpson's facial features later. Pay attention to the placement of this line. Draw two sloping lines to connect the head to the body.
Step 5: Under Homer Simpson's body, on the right side, draw two long, vertical lines as a guide for the first pant leg. These lines should be about as long as the height of the body circle. Close off the bottom with a smaller line.
