The written step-by-step video tutorial:
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: To draw Oogie Boogie from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, first make a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for the head. To draw the circle, first make four small marks to determine its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a button.
Step 2: Inside Oogie Boogie's head, draw two intersecting lines as construction guides to help you place the face later on. Place the vertical line near the middle. Place the horizontal line closer to the top. Curve the lines a bit.
Step 3: Draw a bigger circle below the head for the Oogie Boogie man's body. First make two marks to indicate the circle's height. Then make two more marks to determine the circle's width. These marks will determine the circle's size. Pay attention to its size in relation to the head. Connect the marks using curved lines to complete the shape of the big circle. Remember that if you can't draw the circle like this, just trace the outer edge of a glass or bowl.
Step 4: Draw two lines that connect the two circles to complete the guide for Oogie Boogie's body. Bend the lines a bit at the top to create guides for the shoulders.
Step 5: On the left side, draw a curved line that's similar in shape to the letter S as a guide for the first arm. On the right side, draw a similar line but flip it. This will be the guide for Oogie Boogie's other arm.
