Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Cartoon Network's Steven Universe. 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 small circle near the top of the page as a guide for Steven Universe's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room at the bottom for the rest of the body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the head, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so that they contour to the shape of the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place Steven Universe's facial features later on.
Step 3: Draw two small ovals as guides for Steven Universe's eyes. Draw them sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line. The oval on the left should be smaller because of perspective.
Step 4: On the right side of the head, draw a small arc similar to a backward letter C as a guide for Steven Universe's ear.
Step 5: Under the head, draw a circle as a guide for Steven Universe's body. This circle should be just a bit bigger than the circle for the head.
