I was supposed to submit this tutorial last night or yesterday but I totally forgot to do so. So before I forget again, let me give you a drawing lesson on "how to draw Zim". This American animated cartoon series aired on the Nickelodeon Network until I think 2006. The series revolves around an extraterrestrial character named Zim who belongs to the Irken clan. Now this clan is very specific because your whole social lifestyle is based on an individual’s height. Now since Zim is not tall enough to become part of the social network, he is what you call an outcast. Zim’s character is portrayed as being very naive, narcissistic, hyper, and out of control at times. Now since Zim lives amongst the humans and the humans are aware that they have an invader living on their planet, he has three disguises that he wears to “try” and hide his identity. His attitude toward human life and the planet Earth is simple, he wants to destroy the human race and conquer planet Earth, but neither plan ever falls through for Zim. Out of the three suits he wears my favorite is the one that is almost often used on the show which consist of contact lenses and a wig. Now when he wears this disguise he uses the excuse of his green skin being some sort of skin disease which I think is hilarious. He also wears contact lenses, a pink looking hat, a scruffy looking beard and a dingy shirt; this disguise is equally amusing as well. And lastly the other disguise, suit or costume he wears consist of nothing more than a “human suit” and the only thing that shows is his face as it pokes out from the hole that it has. There are a number of characters that are also a part of the series that Zim associates with and they are; Gir, Dib and Gaz. All three make a wonderful and vivid addition to the series. I like the show, I wish I could watch it a bit more often, but since I work a lot I really don’t have the time to do so. Anyways, in this tutorial you will learn how to draw Zim from Invader Zim step by step. I hope you like this lesson; I will be back later on with more drawing fun so stay tuned gang.

He has some what of a boxy looking face so keep that in mind when you are drawing out the shape of his head. Next add a dash of to the right side of his face for his mouth and then add the lining for his collar that he wears around his neck. Make a hook like line for his right arms and hand and then begin drawing out his legs and feet.
