But let’s just get drawing and start with the easy guide.

Step 1: Draw a cubish shape, slightly bended towards the back and add helping guidelines over it like in the picture below. They will help you position face elements and clothes on your future to be Spongebob drawing. Make these lines with a pencil so you’ll be able to delete them later on.


Step 1

Step 2: Add arms and legs to your character. Don’t forget to sketch the shoes. And then focus on the face, by drawing those big eyes Spongebob has, the nose and the big mouth, with the two teeth you all know from the cartoons.


Step 2

Step 3: Time to draw the clothes: tie, pants, belt, shirt and socks. All these should be placed like in the picture bellow. And later on, the details: eyelashes, pupils, etc . And finally, don’t forget about the spots.

Step 4: And we’re almost done. In this final step you’ll have to delete the helping guidelines drawn at step 1and add shadows and details (or even color) to your Spongebob sketch. And that’s about it. You drawing should look like the one below. Does it?
