You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Sketch the contours of the head
First, draw a large circle, which looks like an asymmetrical, flattened oval. Place our future cat’s head right in the center of the paper.
Outline the contours of the body
Draw a small body. It looks a bit like a heart sign. Pay attention to the characteristic feature of many cartoon styles – the character’s body is much smaller than the head.
Draw Garfield’s eyes
Draw Garfield’s two round eyes. These are very large ovals that make up the main part of the head. Please note that these figures are placed as close as possible.
Draw Garfield’s Ears
Draw our cat’s ears. First, depict two small ovals and then add a few arcs as shown in our reference. The shape and position of Garfield’s ears are very different from those of a normal cat’s.
Drawing Garfield’s Student and Nose
So we continue the tutorial on how to draw Garfield. Let’s work with the small details. Draw two dots in the outer contour of Garfield’s eyes. Then add a rounded outline of the nose.
Drawing Garfield’s heeks
Have you ever noticed that a cat’s cheeks look like a smile? As you can see, this rule even works with cartoon cats. So let’s outline Garfield’s cheeks and outline the outline of his mustache.
Draw the front of the arm
But Garfield’s paws are very different from other cats. Draw the vertical outline of the forefoot, the same position as the human arm.
Draw the back of the arm
Finish drawing Garfield’s front leg and form the back edge of this limb. Use smooth, curved lines. The most rounded and rounded form Garfield’s finger.
Drawing Garfield’s Legs
Sketch Garfield’s hind limbs. Long and thin legs are characteristic of the cartoon style, you can see a similar technique quite often.
Outline the vertices of Garfield’s Feet
Draw the upper part of the foot round. Pay attention to the length of these smooth lines. Use Garfield’s head and torso as a guide.
Sketch of Garfield’s Foot
Draw the lower parts of Garfield’s feet. The front parts of the foot form the big, rounded toes. The other side is the rounded contours of the heel and the straight lines of the foot.
Garfield’s Tail Sketch
Garfield has a large and giant tail. In our example, this tail hangs down and rests on the floor. Let’s draw it with smooth lines.
Erase the Instruction Lines
Everyone knows Garfield’s signature dark stripe pattern. Draw these stripes and notice the stripes on the tail and forehead. After this drawing, take a close look at your sketch and try to figure out all the flaws and mistakes.
Use traditional colors to create a familiar and recognizable Garfield look or create a new look. The mouth and cheeks are lighter in color than the base color.
