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: To begin drawing Gary the snail from SpongeBob SquarePants, draw a circle near the top of the paper for the eye. 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: To the left, draw a partially visible circle for Gary's other eye. This eye is behind the first eye, so don't draw the right edge and make it a bit smaller.
Step 3: Inside the first eye, near the top edge, draw a small circle for the iris. Inside the second eye, close to the right side, draw a small, partially visible circle for Gary's other iris.
Step 4: Inside each iris, draw an even smaller circle for Gary the snail's pupils. Inside each pupil, draw a tiny circle for highlight. Shade the pupils. Don't overlap the tiny highlight circles as you shade the pupils.
Step 5: Under the first eye, draw two long, vertical lines for the stem that connects the eye to the head. Pay attention to the length of these lines in relation to Gary's eyes. The lines should curve inward a bit in the middle.
