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: Start by drawing a small circle at the top of the paper as a guide for Coraline's head. First make four small marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a lid.
Step 2: Inside the head, draw two curved, intersecting lines to help you place Coraline's facial features later on. The vertical line should be in the middle, while the horizontal line should be a bit lower than the middle.
Step 3: Below the head, add the guide for the body by first drawing a horizontal line at the top. Under the horizontal line, draw two long, vertical lines that slope outward for the sides of the body guide. Close the shape with a horizontal line that's longer than the top side. Connect Coraline's head to the body using two short, vertical lines as the guide for the neck.
Step 4: On the left side of the torso, draw a long, angled line as a guide for the first arm. On the bottom end, draw a small shape similar to a tilted letter D as a guide for the hand. On the right side, draw a slightly shorter angled line as a guide for Coraline's other arm. On the bottom, draw another small, D-shaped line as a guide for the other hand.
Step 5: Under the body, on the left side, draw a long, vertical line as a guide for Coraline's first leg. Slope the line to the left a bit. At the bottom, draw a small, tilted oval as a guide for the foot. To the right, draw another long, vertical line as a guide for the other leg. Draw another tilted oval at the bottom as a guide for the other foot.
