Step 1: Start with a circle near the top of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for Charlie Brown's head. Leave enough room at the bottom to draw his body.

Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the head shape, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they contour to the shape of the head. These will be construction lines that will help you place Charlie Brown's facial features later on.
