Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Zim from Nickelodeon's Invader Zim. A new 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. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Zim’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 you should draw the horizontal line closer to the middle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Zim's facial features later on.
Step 3: On the left side of the vertical construction line draw a big oval for the left eye. The oval should sit right on top of the horizontal line so that the line splits it in half. Draw a slightly smaller oval on the right side of the vertical line that extends outside of the rectangle for the right eye.
Step 4: Under the square head, draw a pointy triangle that’s a bit shorter than the head as a guide for Zim's body.
Step 5: On the left side of Zim's body, draw a line similar to a long letter J as a guide for this alien character's arm and hand.
