To draw Foghorn Leghorn, follow step-by-step drawings below. The new lines in each step are shown in red, and each step is explained in the text below the photo, so you'll know exactly what to draw in each step.
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 paper as a guide for Foghorn Leghorn's head. First make four small marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a bottle cap.
Step 2: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the circle as a construction guide to help you place Foghorn Leghorn's facial features later. On the top, left side, draw a smaller vertical line for another construction guide.
Step 3: On the left side of the circle, draw a couple of curved lines as guides for the Foghorn Leghorn's beak. The left side of the guide should be pointy. Pay attention to how big this guide is in relation to the head. The bottom line should curve inside the head.
Step 4: Under the circle, draw a few lines as guide for the bottom half of Foghorn Leghorn's head. The lines on the sides should slope outward at the bottom. Close the bottom of the shape using a long, curved horizontal line.
Step 5: Far down below the head, draw a big circle as a guide for the bottom half of Foghorn Leghorn's body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. Foghorn Leghorn is tall, so pay attention to how far away from the head this big circle is. This circle should also be very big in relation to the entire head.
Step 6: Draw two long lines that connect the head to the big circle to create the guide for the top part of Foghorn Leghorn's body. The top of the body should be narrow and the bottom should be wide.
Step 7: On either side of the top of the body, draw an angled line as a guide for Foghorn Leghorn's arms. The line on the left should be a bit smaller because of the way the body is turned. At the bottom of the line on the right, draw a small cirlce as a guide for the hand. On the left side, draw only a curved line as a guide for the hand because the body will be blocking part of it.
Step 8: Under the body, draw two vertical lines as guides for Foghorn Leghorn's legs. At the bottom of the lines, draw two big, triangular shapes as guides for the feet. The feet should be very big in relation to the body.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing of Foghorn Leghorn from the Looney Tunes.
Step 9: Darken the guide to the left of the head to create the top part of Foghorn Leghorn's beak. Add a couple of short curved lines for extra detail.
Step 10: Below the beak, draw a series of curved lines for the bottom half of Foghorn Leghorn's beak. The right side should curve to form a cheek-like shape. Add a curved line inside the shape for the open mouth.
Step 11: Sitting on top of the beak, draw a couple of small, curved arcs for Foghorn Leghorn's eyes. Separate the arcs using the initial vertical construction guide line. The eye on the left should be a bit smaller because of the way the head is turned.
Step 12: Inside each eye, add a tiny dot for Foghorn Leghorn's pupils. Above each eye, draw a short, curved line for the brows. Inside the open mouth, draw a couple of curved lines for the tongue. Under the beak, draw a couple of U-shaped lines for the fleshy section called the wattle.
Step 13: On top of the head, draw a series of curved arcs for Foghorn Leghorn's crest. The first arc should curve forward a bit. The two arcs in the back should be smaller and thinner.
Step 14: Use the other guides at the top as guides to draw the rest of Foghorn Leghorn's head. Darken the outer edge of the guides to create the shape of the head. Make the top part a bit thinner than the initial circle. At the bottom, draw a series of small, U-shaped lines for the feathers along the lower edge of the head. Notice how far down the lower edge curves.
Step 15: Use the angled line on the right side of the body as a guide to draw Foghorn Leghorn's first arm. Lightly sketch the shape of the arm around the guide. Make the shape wide and the narrower toward the wrist. Add a few small, curved lines at the elbow for feathers. Draw the shape of the hand inside the initial circle at the bottom. Draw a few short, curved lines on the right for the curled fingers.
Step 16: Darken the outer edges of the guides below the head to create the shape of Foghorn Leghorn's body. Make the line on the right extra long to create part of the leg. Add a line along the bottom edge of the initial big circle for the bottom of the body. Inside the top part of the body, draw a short vertical line for the chest.
Step 17: Draw the shape of Foghorn Leghorn's other arm around the angled guide line on the left. A big part of this arm will be hidden behind the body, so only draw the visible portion. Use curved lines for the feather on the elbow. Draw the visible portion of the hand inside the small curved line at the bottom.
Step 18: Draw a sloping line under the body to finish the shape of Foghorn Leghorn's thick leg. Under the leg, draw a series of short, curved lines for the feathery lower edge. Draw the big toes inside the initial triangular shape. Draw two big toes pointing forward and one pointing bakc. Use curved lines on the top part of the toes for wrinkles. On the tip of each toe, draw a tiny triangular shape for the nails.
Step 19: Draw Foghorn Leghorn's leg on the left the same way. Draw the thick shape of the leg around the initial guide line. Make the top part thick and gradually make the bottom thinner. Use short, curved lines along the bottom for the feathers on the lower edge. Draw the three big toes inside the initial triangular guide. Use curved lines for the tops of the toes. On the tip of each toe, draw a tiny triangular shape for the nails.
Step 20: On the right side of the body, draw a series of long, cruved lines for Foghorn Leghorn's three gigantic feathers that make up the tail. The top shape should be the biggest and the bottom the smallest. Make the bottom ends of the shapes pointy.
Step 21: Go over the final sketch lines with a pen, marker or any other type of permanent ink. Take your time and be careful when you ink your drawing of Foghorn Leghorn to avoid any accidents. After the ink dries, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser for a cleaner drawing of Foghorn Leghorn from the Looney Tunes.
Final Step: Color your Foghorn Leghorn drawing using colored pencils, markers or crayons! Use red for the crest, the tongue and the wattle. Use brown for the head, the tail and the inside of the mouth. Color the beak and the feet yellow-orange. That's it! You know how a finished drawing of Foghorn Leghorn from Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies.
