Has anyone heard of the new movie Despicable Me? Well, I just learned about it, and I can honestly say that I look forward to seeing it when it comes to DVD. I would watch it in the theaters but to me, a movie such as this isn’t worth paying for. The only reason why I would want to see the flick, is because Steve Carell is going to be the voice actor for the main character in the computer generated movie. What am I talking about you ask? Well, I’m talking about a character named Gru, and that is what this lesson will be on today. I don’t know too much about his background, but I can tell you what I have learned by surfing the net. From what I've read, Despicable Me is a story about Gru who is a man that is looking to steal the moon with the aid of his mischievous minions that he created. Gru lives in a black colored house that is surrounded by a dead lawn. He does all of his sneaky plots in a hideout that is located beneath his home. I guess you could say that Gru has a personality relative to the Grinch or Ebeneezer Scrooge because like those two characters, he loves anything that brings misery, or wickedness to others. He is also equipped with an arsenal of weapons like shrink rays, freeze rays, and even vessels that can carry him through land or air. All seems well for Gru, and his plan to steal the moon seems like it’s going to be a go. Of course that is before his life is turned upside down by three orphaned girls that seem to think that Gru would make a wonderful, loving father. The girls are Margo, Edith, and Agnes. After reading what I have, I came to think that this may be a movie worth watching in a theater. Who knows, maybe it will be a surprising delight like How to Train Your Dragon was. Nonetheless, you will get to learn "how to draw Gru", step by step. I think you will find that when it comes to drawing Despicable Me characters, you will be surprised on how easy it really is. I shall return with more drawing fun to try and stay tuned in because I do have more on the way. Adios my fellow artist and friends, until we meet again.

How to Draw Gru

how to draw gru step 1

STEP 1.

You can begin by drawing the small shape of Gru's head, and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the guidelines for the arms, torso, hips, and legs.

All you have to do here is thicken the head shape, and then draw the one ear, and turtle neck collar like you see here.

Draw the nose, and then begin the eye lining and smile. When that is done you can draw out the shapes of the shoulders, arms and some of the hands like so.

STEP 4.

Okay, as you can see here Gru is somewhat top heavy. All you need to do now is draw out his hands and fingers, and then draw out the scarf that is snuggly wrapped around his neck. Once that is all done, you can then finish drawing out the torso, which also happens to be his jacket.

STEP 5.

Draw in the eyes in more finishing detail, and then add the eyebrows as well as color them in like so. Gru doesn't have any head hair, so you don't have to worry about drawing hair. All you have to do in this step is draw out, and color in the strips on Gru's scarf, and then draw a zipper line on his coat.

STEP 6.

You have now reached the last drawing step which means all you have to do is draw out his legs, and then his small looking feet. Once that is done, all you have to do is erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.
