Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik from Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video games and cartoons. 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 circle near the middle of the page. You may want to orient the paper horizontally so that you have room on the sides for Dr. Eggman's big mustache. This circle will be the basic shape for Dr. Eggman's head. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines, one vertical and one horizontal. These are construction lines that will help you place Dr. Eggman's facial features later on.
Step 3: Right where the construction lines intersect, draw a shape similar to an egg or oval as a guide for Dr. Eggman's nose.
Step 4: Sitting on top of the horizontal construction line and on either side of the vertical construction line, draw two small circles as guides for Dr. Eggman's eyes. The circles should be behind the nose, so don't draw the complete circles.
Step 5: That’s it for the initial sketch! You have the basic shape of Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik from Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video games. Now go in and tighten your Eggman drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
