How to Draw Tarzan
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Tarzan from Walt Disney's Tarzan. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: When learning how to draw Tarzan, first 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 circle near the top, right side of the page. This will be the basic shape for the top of Tarzan's head. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Under the circle, draw a shape for Tarzan's jaw and chin. Angle the line on the left side to indicate where the jaw will be. Then angle the line twice at the bottom for the chin. These two shapes are the guide for Tarzan's entire head.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head shape, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Tarzan's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two small shapes similar to half-circles or ovals sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. These will be guides for Tarzan's eyes. The oval on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 5: On the left side of Tarzan's head, draw an arc similar to the letter C as a guide for his ear.
