Draw Garfield easily:
Now that you’re ready, you know who is this big red cat and what it looks like, it’s time to draw it.
We have separated the realization in 9 steps to follow:
Step 1: Eyes and cheeks
Start by drawing a small oval to represent the nose . On each side of the nose, traces a curved line which ends in a spiral. This forms the top of Garfield’s mouth and his cheeks .
Then, makes an oval starting from the middle of the nose and arriving to the right cheek in order to represent the first eye. For the second eye, go from the left cheek and make a curved line arriving on the right eye.
Finally, traces a line on each eye, at the top of the cheeks, to form the eyelids . You can then make two small circles to represent the pupils .
Step 2: Mouth and head
Make the mouth using two curves, each going from nose to cheeks and creates small lines in the shape of a “U” to the corners of the mouth to form dimples .
Made of small points in the cheekbones in order to represent the base of mustaches .
Then draw the sides of the face using long curved lines.
Step 3: The ears and the belly
To make ears : use curved lines that overlap to form rounded triangular shapes. Then details the ears by drawing a curved line on each of them.
Make three lines with a fine base and at the broader end, at the base of each ear, to indicate the tufts of Garfield hair.
Symbolizes chin with a small curved line.
And draws her round body using 3 curves.
Step 4: The arm and the right hand
Let us now attack his arm and his right hand.
Start by tracing the arm with lines in the shape of “L” then realizes the palm of the hand , and finally the fingers starting with the thumb.
Step 5: The arm and the left hand
Draw the outline of the palm of the right hand with two curved lines.
Then use a series of lines that overlap to start drawing the rest of the arm.
Step 6: The left foot
Complete the left hand using two curved lines to draw the third finger and the side of the hand.
Then, traces two straight and parallel lines from the opening of the bottom of the torso. Here is the Garfield’s leg.
Use curved lines that overlap to draw the top and bottom of foot .
Step 7: The right foot
Complete the left foot using two curved lines that overlap to form the remaining toes.
We can now make the leg and right foot!
Use a straight line for the front of the leg and lines that overlap for the top of the foot and the first two toes.
Step 8: The tail
Complete the right foot with a line in the shape of a “C” for the last toe and a curved line for the lower foot.
You can now do the tail using a long curved line that duplicates itself.
Step 9: Black stripes
Here is the route is over! Now all you have to do is do the black scratches from our favorite cat.
