How To Draw Steve

Drawing is an art form that brings out your hidden creativity, and Steve is the perfect character for you to practice on. With his iconic moustache, bright blue eyes and his incredible cartoon-like features, drawing him will make you feel accomplished. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an experienced artist; drawing Steve can be fun and easy once you know the tricks and tips to get it right. Here is how to draw Steve:
Start with the Proportions
The key to getting Steve right is starting with proportions. Start with drawing a centered vertical line to set the proportions of the face. Adding a circle to the middle of the line acts as a guide for your drawing. You will figure out the exact size and measurements of your drawing once you decide how big will you draw Steve.
Outline the Face
Once you have your proportions and sizing in order, it is time to draw the actual face. Begin by drawing the eyes using curved contours on top of the line that separates the eyebrow from the actual head. Next, draw the outlines for the nose and the moustache. The moustache is more of a curved line instead of a pointed one, going from the nose to the jaw line. This should be a few lines under the nose, but make sure you don’t go too far as you will be left with a gap between the moustache and the nose.
Add Details to the Face
Now that you have the face outlines done, it is time to add details and make your drawing of Steve look perfect. Start by filling up the eyes with curved contours and highlights. This will make them look more alive. To add details to the moustache, draw two lips and a center line going from one ear to the other. Then draw random small lines from the center going up and down. This will make the moustache look more realistic and not so copy-pasted.
Refine and Finalize the Drawing
The last step is to refine the face and make it look perfect. This can be done by erasing all the rough lines and smoothing and blending them together. You may add a few wrinkles and quickly shade the face to make it look more natural. This is also the time when you will be able to decide the kind of expression you want your Steve to have. You may draw him with a cheerful, grumpy, or sad expression – it’s completely up to you!
Outline the Body
After the face anatomy is complete, it’s time to draw the body. Start by drawing a vertical line going from the head to the feet. Then draw two curved lines for the arms and the hands. Adding details here is not necessary, but optional. You can, however, add wrinkles and fold lines on the clothing to make it look more realistic.
Add details to the clothing
Adding the details is the last step to complete your drawing. Start by adding details to the clothing. Draw details such as pockets, belt buckles, and buttons on the clothes. You may also draw wrinkles and shadows to make the drawing look more realistic.
Shade and final touches
Once you are done with the details, it is time to make this Steve look alive. Start by filling the whole drawing with light and dark shades. Use hatching and cross hatching techniques to create depth in the drawing. Add shadows to make your Steve look alive and you will have a beautiful drawing of Steve ready!
With a little bit of observation, practice and dedication, anyone can draw Steve with perfection. Just remember to start with the right proportions, add the right details and finalize it with the right shading techniques. In no time, you will be able to draw an amazing cartoon-like Steve with ease!
