How To Draw Beetlejuice

Step 1.

In this first step you will be drawing out a basic mannequin shaped frame for Beetlejuice. Start by drawing out the shape of his head which is a circle with facial guidelines drawn in. Next draw a small straight line for his neck and then a large square shape for his body. From those two shapes draw in the guidelines as shown including the shapes for his hands and feet.

Step 2.

Now here you will start to sketch out his face and parts of his hair. Start by enlarging the step so you can see exactly what you have to do. Next draw out the eyebrows, eyes, nose, and the shape of his mouth. Now draw out the outlines for his messy styled hair as shown. Next draw the beginning part of his striped jacket which is two long straight lines with the bottom squaring off to the shape of his torso as shown. Next draw the two folded lips for the collar and the draw out the cylinder shaped lining for his arm and detail his left hand with finger lines. Lastly for this step draw out the upper shape of his legs. The further down the leg you go sketch it with a hint of a squiggle.

Step 3.

Again in this step the first thing you want to do is enlarge the step to see ever detail you have to draw out. Start with his face. Draw out that nasty spiked lining on the right side of his face and sketch out more of his hair. Sketch in more of the nasty lining near his mouth. Draw out the shape of his tie and the rest of his left arm. Detail his left hand a bit more and draw out the shape of his right arm as well as detail it. Move to the right hand now and draw out the five fingers and draw a few lines that wrap around his wrist. Sketch in some detailing on the bottom left side of his jacket and finish drawing out the shape of his legs and detail his pants with wrinkled lining. Sketch out his boots and laces and move to the next step.

Step 4.

Here in this step you will be shading in around his eyes and inside his mouth. Now you will have to draw out every strip on his black and white suit. On the left arm the stripes go a round and on his jacket and pants the stripes go down. Finish off this step and detail the definition on his face.

Step 5.

All you will do here is finish off the striping lines as shown. When your sketch of Beetlejuice looks like the one above you can erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step 1.

Step 6.

That is it you are done. All you have to do now is color his lines in black and his hair in green. That was easy huh. Well that will do it for this tutorial on how to draw Beetlejuice step by step.

This next tutorial that was on my "to draw" list is going to be a character from one of my favorite movies. Today you will learn how to draw the one, the only, Beetlejuice. That is right ladies and gentlemen you are going to experience an awesome wave of fun as you step into this time machine of drawing fun. When the movie Beetlejuice first came out I didn't see it. It took me two years before I set my eyes on this hilariously funny movie starting Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, and Gina Davis. Oh my god, Beetlejuice was such an awesome character from the late 80's. The movie starts off with a couple who lives in an over sized house in a small town in New England. The couple's names were Adam and Barbara Maitland. They constantly were pestered by their friend and relater Jane. Jane felt that the two should sell their home to a family and move in a much smaller house that the couple will be more at home in. Of course Adam and Barbara refuse her over and over again but she just does not know how to take "NO" for an answer. Now Adam has a hobby where he has built an entire intricate model of the whole town they live in and they also own a hardware store. Adam needs to take a ride and get some supplies he needs as he adds some special touches to his carefully detailed model. So as the adorable couple travel into town they have a fun peaceful drive down to their hardware store. On the way back home as they were under a bridge a stray dog crosses out of no where in front of them. They immediately swerved out of the way crashing into the barn style bridge. Eventually they crash into the water and die but they don't know there dead until some time later. They spend a whole night trying to process the fact that they are no longer a part of the living. The very next morning there are a bunch of strangers in their house. Jane the woman that tried to get them to sell finally sold their peaceful home to the Deetzes who were from New York.They absolutely could not stand these people so they wanted them out. After several attempts to get these invaders out of their house they had no choice but to call upon Beetlejuice. They said his name three times and out he came ready to work. Beetlejuice is a ghost that provides serves to other ghost in need of help. But when the couple meet him they are totally blown away by his obnoxious and off the wall behavior. You could say they got more then they bargained for. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw Beetlejuice step by step. The instructions are always easy to understand and read. So say it once, say it twice, third times a charm, Beetlejuice is invading your sketch pad after you are threw.
