A Penguin Cartoon Drawing
STEP-1: Start With the Head
Then, just at the top centre of the circle, make a couple of tilted curving shapes like shown in the example image. Make sure to make one of them smaller than the other.
STEP-2: Continue with the Body Shape
Next, draw a wavy line coming down from each side of the head moving down. These lines should be about the same length and curve out a little bit as they move downward. The reason they curve out at the bottom is to give the penguin cartoon a thicker bottom so it has more balance.
Lastly, you'll want to connect the two lines that you just drew. You might want to take a quick look at the finished drawing so you can get an idea of how this curve along the bottom of the body should flow so that you'll be able to fit the two feet under them in Step 4.
STEP-3: Let's Draw Hands!
Then add a little triangle on the left side which will be the left hand. Pretty easy right?
Next just at the point where the curving line of the head meets the lower right side of the head circle, draw a slightly tilted line moving towards the right and the curving back. This line stops just below the point where it started from and will make the other hand or wing depending on what you think it should be called.
From the bottom line of this new hand, draw a line that goes down straight to meet the bottom edge of the body. Your penguin cartoon should be coming along nicely, but let's keep on truckin!
STEP-4: Add Some Feet to Your Penguin Cartoon
First make the foot on the left, by making three curving lines. Leave a little space and then make another set of three curving lines on the right for the other foot.
These feet should be on the left side of the bottom of the cartoon penguin's body.
Then just below the two curves at the very top of the face, make two little circles for the eyes. Below the eyes and to the sides, make two tiny ovals for the cheeks.
Then in between the two cheeks make a curvy triangle for the cartoon penguin's beak. This triangle has a top side in curved outward, while the two other sides are straight. If you're having problems look closely at the example for the correct directions.
The very last thing to draw is a tiny curved line along the bottom of the beak to complete the mouth.
Your cute penguin cartoon should be finished now - have fun coloring it!
