How to Draw the Ice King
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw the Ice King from Cartoon Network's Adventure Time. 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 small circle near the top of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect; it’s just a guide for the Ice King’s head.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal. Have them bend a bit to contour to the circle’s form. These will be construction guides that will help you place the Ice King's features later on.
Step 3: Sitting on top of the horizontal construction line, draw two small circles for the Ice King's eyes. Place them on either side of the vertical horizontal line.
Step 4: Draw a guide for the Ice King's crown on top of his head. There should be three long narrow spikes on the crown similar to three upside-down letter V’s.
Step 5: Below the Ice King's head, draw a big arc as a guide for his beard. Start drawing the arc on the left side of his head at the end of the horizontal construction line. End the line on the other side of his head at the other end of the horizontal construction line.
