How to Draw The Simpsons

Step 1.

Since your drawing a total of five family members, you will need to do five times the work. Start by drawing circle shapes for all of their heads, and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw out the framework to form the bodies like you see here. When your drawing step looks like the one above, you know it's tome to move forward.

Step 2.

The next thing you are going to do is start sketching out all five faces and head shapes. Once that is done, draw the eyes, noses, and mouths for Lisa, Marge, and Homer Simpson. Add eyelashes for Lisa, and Marge's eyes, and then a full set of teeth in Homer's mouth. Marge is very popular for her cone like hairstyle so you will need to draw that out too, and make sure the edging is wavy because she is supposed to have curly hair. All you have to do is draw a few pieces of strands for Homers hair, and Lisa has a spiked do going on.

Step 3.

Before you get to drawing out the bodies, you will need to draw the faces, eyes, and hair for both Bart, and Maggie. Bart has a crew cut, and Maggie has a hairdo like Lisa. Once the two kids are sketched out the way you see them here, you can then proceed to drawing out the upper portion of Lisa, Marge, and Homer's bodies.

Step 4.

See how this animated family is coming along? Who knew that drawing The Simpsons was going to be so easy. Add the dots for their eyeballs, and then sketch out their ears. Draw Maggie's body completely, and then sketch out Bart's upper body and then Marge's upper body.

Step 5.

For your last drawing step all you have to do is draw Lisa's dress, Bart's shorts, and everybody's legs and shoes. Since Marge is sitting on a chair, you will have to draw the visible parts of that too. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one, and then proceed to the next step.

Step 6.

The now complete. Have fun coloring in America's number one animated family. I mean, that should be exciting because they are all so colorful. What family is more entertain, The Simpsons, or The Griffins? You decide.

“The Simpsons”...those awesome two words that starts every episode of the animated series. I wanted to do a lesson on a portrait of one of the worlds most popular animated families. Even though I already have tutorials on all five characters, I thought it would be fun to show you guys “how to draw the Simpsons, step by step”. I don't think there is a need for me to go into detail about the show because it has been airing on TV for over a decade now. Bart, Lisa, Maggie, Homer, and Marge make up the family as a whole, and together they bring big laughs, excitement and ideas to those who are fans of the series. The cartoon comedy has been airing since 1989, and is still on Fox to this day standing strong. In all there is a total of a whopping four hundred fifty one episodes since the shows start. The Simpsons was originally created by Matt Groening for Fox Broadcasting Company. It is a hilarious parody that takes place in the city of Springfield. Like a majority of working class families in the eighties, Marge is a stay at home mother, and Homer is the bread winner. Their son Bart is a rebellious, high energy kid that attends Springfield Elementary School along with his brainiac sister Lisa. Lisa on the other hand likes to do things right contrary to the fact that she has a semi-alcoholic, overweight father that acts more like a child then a dad and husband. It's funny to me that a show can air for a total of twenty years, and still have an infant look like a baby still. Of course I'm talking about Maggie. Marge holds the family together even though life gets to be a little over the top for her liking. Once in a while the show will bring in Marge's two twin sisters who are nothing like Marge whatsoever. In all the show is an awesomely funny animated comedy series that will last a very long time to come. I think you guys will enjoy this tutorial that will show you “how to draw The Simpsons, step by step”. Have fun with this lesson, and keep an eye out for more upcoming fun stuff to learn from, and draw. Adios amigos!
