I’d like to say that the next three tutorials are going to be on some really cool characters. The truth is, I am going to submit some figures from an upcoming Dr. Seuss based movie called “The Lorax”. If you grew up reading Dr. Seuss books, you may or may not be familiar with the characters or story. Up first I’m going to show you "how to draw the Lorax", step by step. This character is one of the main figures of the book. When trying to pin point what type of creature Lorax is, there is really only one way to describe what there is no name for. As it states in the book the Lorax is “shortish, brownish, and oldish, and mossy, and he spoke with a voice that was sharpish and bossy”. This little brown figure actually looks a little bit like Wilford Brimley, you know, the guy that was in the movie adaption of Stephen King’s book The Thing. He was the old guy that they kept locked up in solitary confinement. Anyways, I think Lorax is cute, but he is also a little creepy too. The Lorax is overly protective of the Truffula Trees as he is the caretaker of the Truffula Tree forest. He is also always on a constant mission to warn the Once-ler about the consequences to cutting down the trees. The only way to understand what the heck I’m talking about is to either read the book, or wait until May of 2012 to buy a ticket and see the 3D CGI movie in theaters. Anyways, this is going to be a fun, bright and colorful tutorial on "how to draw the Lorax". I hope you like it, and if you want more characters from the Dr. Seuss movie, stay tuned in because there is more on the way!
