How to Draw GIR
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw GIR from Nickelodeon's Invader Zim. 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 big rectangle near the top half of the page. The rectangle should be oriented slightly diagonally, and the sides should be bulging out a bit. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for GIR’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the rectangle, one vertical and one horizontal. The vertical line should be close to the right side, while the horizontal line should be closer to the top. These will be construction lines that will help you place GIR's facial features later on.
Step 3: On the left side of the vertical construction line and right under the horizontal construction line, draw a big circle for the left eye. Draw a slightly smaller oval on the right side of the vertical line that extends outside of the rectangle for GIR's other eye.
Step 4: Under GIR's head, draw a shape similar to a rectangle with the top missing as a guide for the body.
Step 5: Draw a small U-shaped arc inside the body as a guide for GIR's hands. Under the body, draw two more U-shaped arcs as guides for GIR's feet.
