How to Draw Olaf (Frozen)
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Olaf, the snowman from Disney's Frozen. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: To learn how to draw Olaf the snowman, 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 circle near the top of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top part of Olaf's head. Leave enough room at the bottom to draw his body later on.
Step 2: Under the circle, draw a long arc similar to the letter U. The space from the bottom of the circle to the bottom of the arc should be about the same as the height of the circle. These two shapes combined make up Olaf's head.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head shape, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. Notice that the horizontal line is within the shape of the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Olaf's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a shape similar to a diamond near the lower right side of the first circle as a guide for Olaf's carrot nose. Use the guide lines to help you position Olaf's nose where it's supposed to be. The tip of the shape should stick out of the head a little bit on the right side.
Step 5: Draw two small circles right above the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical line. These will be guides for Olaf's eyes. The circle on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective, and the bottom part should be blocked by Olaf's nose.
