Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Mandy from Cartoon Network's The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. 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 oval near the top half of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the Mandy’s head.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the oval, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Mandy's facial features later on.
Step 3: Right under the horizontal construction line, draw two half-circles as guides for Mandy's eyes. The half-circles should be on either side of the vertical construction line, and the one on the left should be a bit smaller because of the perspective.
Step 4: Under Mandy's head draw a square or trapezoid-like shape as a guide for the body. The top of the shape should be narrower than the bottom, and it should be about half the height of the original oval.
Step 5: For Mandy's arm guides, draw an angled line on either side of the sketch where the head meets the body. At the end of each line, draw a circle as a guide for her hands. The circle on the left side is hiding behind the body, so only draw the visible portion.
