First start out by drawing his head shape with eye lines. Draw a smallish circle that covers the end of his lower eye line and sticks out of the head shape a bit. Then draw his torso guide lines with shoulder arch and arm extensions. Also draw a rounded rectangle that will be slightly smaller at the top than the bottom. It should look kind of like a lopsided marshmallow.
Since the bangs cover part of the eyes, lets start with them next. Where the bangs cross the eye lines, make sure they only extend down less than half way. To do the hair that covers part of his ear, have it come down from the upper bang, touch the circle, create a point and then go back up through the middle of that circle. Make sure the fez he wears is curved or it may look funny! Aladdin has poofy hair, but if you don't add the extra out of place hair pieces, he will look like a girl. Be careful of that!
Now you can start drawing his eyes! Be careful with the eye covered by the bangs. Use the blue arch guide line if you need it, but this is optional! Draw a full smile and his lower lip as well as his torso. Next to him, draw a rice cake shape (soft triangle) with a little egg shape on top for him to rest his hand on. After this step you can erase the shoulder arch, arm lines, torso lines, extra head shape and eye lines. Leave the marshmallow shape and the half circle for his ear though!
Now you can draw in his vest and the wrap around his waist. The wrap should go into the marshmallow shape just a bit. Now you can turn that marsh mallow shape into pants by thinning the sides a little and adding a low cut to his pants. Keep them low! Aladdin has very baggy pants! Go ahead and add his little feet after you have made the pants.
Aladdin wouldn't be set without his lamp now would he? Draw the spout being sure to keep it curved the whole time. Use straight lines flaring out from the bottom of the soft triangle shape and use a curved line to connect them. If you need help with the handle, you can use the blue guide line again but it is optional! Draw the handle and the 4 lines for the decoration and lid. After this, erase the line where the spout connected and the top of the soft triangle that overlaps the egg shape.
Now for the final touches! Draw the lines for where his eyebrows would be hiding under his bangs, eye lines, extra fingers on his hand at his side, a patch, a line for his chest, and a little S shaped line to make up his ear. Go ahead and erase a little bit of the smile right in the middle where the lip line is.
Good job! Have fun coloring your very own Aladdin!
