How to Draw Meg (Hercules)
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Meg from Walt Disney's Hercules. A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
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: Start with 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 Megara's head.
Step 2: Draw a small V-shaped arc under Meg's head as a guide for her jaw and chin. The sides of the arc should curve out a bit. These combined two shapes make the guide for the head.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the entire head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. These will be construction lines that will help you place Meg's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two small shapes similar to footballs as guides for Meg's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The shape on the left should be a bit smaller because of perspective.
Step 5: Under the head, draw two curved lines as guides for Meg's neck and shoulders. Don't make the lines too far apart, otherwise she'll end up with wide shoulders.
