This tutorial will show you how to draw Lisa Simpson from the Simpsons TV cartoon. Lisa was not my favorite Simpson of all time, but she is still fun to draw. Besides, who would the Simpson's be without the saxaphone playing Lisa? So let's get started with this tutorial on how to draw Lisa Simpson in five easy steps.
First, we are going to draw Lisa's head using a lot of different sizes of circles. Start with a smaller circle and then place two smaller circles in that for the eyes. Then, draw a much larger circle around that. This is going to help us down the road when we go to draw Lisa'a hair.
To draw Lisa's body, we are going to start by giving shape to where her dress, arms, and legs will be. Use two long curves to create Lisa's neck and the edge of her dress. Make sure to close the lines at the bottom. Place the lines below that for her legs, and a couple of curving lines for the outline of where her arms will be.
We are going to add Lisa's hair using many "V" shapes that stay within the lines of our larger circle. Add a "C" shape for her ear and a "U" shape for her nose. You can also add her mouth, arms, and legs by using the guides we created in the last step.
Let's finish off Lisa's dress by adding "V" shapes to the bottom. A curve by the armpits marks the top of her dress. Lisa has a necklace of pearls we can create by adding five circles strung together. Add four small lines above each eye for her eye lashes and a couple of curves for the inside of her ear. Lastly, add the details of her shoes.
At this point, we have finished our drawing of Lisa Simpson. Now you can erase your guide lines and clean up your picture.
