Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Bender the robot from Futurama. 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 medium-sized circle near the middle of the page. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the top part of Bender’s head.
Step 2: Directly underneath the first circle, draw another circle of the same size for the bottom part of Bender’s head.
Step 3: Draw a series of lines that envelop the lower circle to form a cylinder. Draw two straight, parallel lines on the sides and one curved line at the bottom.
Step 4: Draw a long vertical line in the middle that sticks out of the top part. The length that sticks out is about half the length of one of the circles. This is a construction line that will help you place Bender's robot facial features.
Step 5: Draw a small circle where the two main circles meet with the vertical line. Then draw another half circle to the right of the circle you just drew. These are guides for Bender’s eyes.
