Okay, last week a member named Dandeeno, submitted an awesome lesson on a Sesame Street character called Bert. Once that was uploaded, I was sort inspired to do a lesson that was on the very popular duo from the same PBS series. Today, I will be showing you guys "how to draw Bert and Ernie", step by step. These two roommates are some of the more popular characters from the show, and there is good cause for all the hysteria. First off, Bert is what you call the more series of the two, and Ernie is the goofball, and he also has a goofball mentality. Ernie is best known for his whimsical song that he sings called “Rubber Duckie” and it goes like this; “Rubber Duckie you're the one, You make bath time lots of fun, Rubber Duckie I'm awfully fond of you, Rubber Duckie joy of joys when I squeeze you, you make noise Rubber Duckie you're my very best friend it's true, I find a little fellow who's cute and yellow and chubby Rub a dub dubby, Rubber Duckie you're so fine and I'm lucky that you're mine, Rubber Duckie I'd like a whole pond of you, Rubber Duckie I'm awfully fond of you”. The Sesame Street puppets where provided, and created by Jim Henson, and The Public Broadcasting Company worked together with Henson to bring together one of the most popular shows in America. There is a total of forty seasons, and four thousand, two hundred twelve episodes. The lesson itself is going to be very easy to replicate. I mean after all, they are just hand puppets. That is all I have for you guys for this lesson's description, meet me back in a few with more drawing fun. Adios mi amigos!

Start with two shapes for Ernie, and Bert's heads. Ernie has a round shape, and Bert has an oval shape. Once that is done, add the facial guidelines.

STEP 2.

You will begin drawing out the shape of Ernie's head and or face starting from the bottom and working your way up. Incorporate the shapes of his ears with the very same lining like you see here, and then add a round nose, and slanted eye shapes. All you have to do for Bert is thicken the head lining, and add some ears. You will then draw a big fat looking nose, and then his eyes.

STEP 3.

Okay, as you know both of these characters have very soft looking fluffy hairstyles. Ernie has a full head of frizzy hair, and Bert has what you call a fuzz at the top like a tree. Next, draw in the eyeballs or dots, and then draw the one thick unibrow for Bert, as well as color it in. You will also need to color in their hair too. Lastly, draw out the mouths and tongues.
