First, we are going to draw Bart's head using two rectangular shapes. A larger one for the actual head and a smaller on for his neck. Draw a center line down the middle so that we know which way he is going to be looking.
Now we are going to add the rest of Bart's body. Use two half circlar shapes that connect to form his midsection. Add a couple of curved lines to form his arm. Next, add his legs by using four curved lines coming from the bottom of his torso. Then, complete his shoes with some more curved lines that come together at a point.
Great, now we are going to add some facial features. Using our center line, we are going to add a curve at the bottom of the large rectangle to form Bart's mouth. A half circle below that forms his bottom lip. A backwards "C" shape will form his ear, while a "U" shape creates his nose. Then, you can add two large circles for his eyes.
Using our outline, we will trace the shape of Bart's shirt and shorts. Make sure the pant legs line up with where his legs are. You can add the sleeve of his shirt with a "U" shape that is closed. We can add fingers to his arm but adding 4 small "V" shapes at the end.
The last few details to add is Bart's spiky hair which is a combination of "V" and "U" shapes. Add a "C" shape above Bart's eye to make his forehead. You can also add the circles on Bart's shoes, and the loops above his shoes for his socks. Also, add a little line at the bottom of his shoes for the soles.
