How to Draw Shrek
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Shrek. 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 by drawing a shape similar to an egg in the middle of the page. The shape doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s only a guide for Shrek’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the egg shape, one vertical and one horizontal. These are construction lines that will help you place Shrek’s facial features later on.
Step 3: For Shrek's eyes, draw two football shapes that sit on top of the horizontal line and on either side of the vertical line.
Step 4: Below the section where the two construction lines intersect, draw an oval as a guide for Shrek's nose.
Step 5: On either side of Shrek's head, near the ends of the horizontal construction line, draw a diagonal line. At the end of each line, draw a small circle. These are guides for this ogre's ears.
