Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Squidward Tentacles from Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
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 small oval at the top of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Squidward’s head.
Step 2: Inside the oval, draw a vertical line that splits the shape in half and extends down below the oval. The length of the line outside the oval should be a bit less than the height of the oval. This is a construction line that will help you draw Squidward’s features later on.
Step 3: Below the main oval, draw a shape similar to a square with the top part missing as a guide for the lower part of Squidward's head.
Step 4: Inside the shape of Squidward's head and on either side of the vertical construction line, draw two small ovals next to each other as guides for his eyes. They should sit just below the main oval shape.
Step 5: Directly under this SpongeBob SquarePants character's eyes, draw another oval about the same size as one eye as a guide for Squidward's nose.
