How To Draw-Spongebob's Face
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?!
Over the years Spongebob has been getting even more popular with every generation.I myself, at 25, still enjoy watching Spongebob with it's, at times, adult humor and hilarious one liners. What isn't to love? For those out there who have a hard time drawing and need and easy way of understanding how to get Spongebob's face just right, here is a quick tutorial.
*Side note.. I am using paint to draw Spongebob because my camera does not take very good pictures of Pencil on Paper. Same rules apply to draw him both ways, on Paint and paper.
A Place to start
Anyone who knows of Spongebob knows of his big eyes, long nose and gaped tooth smile. I will show you how to draw a classic Spongebob face.
One of the best places to start when drawing Spongebob is his eyes. They set the whole size of the face you will be drawing, the bigger the eyes, the bigger the face.
The next main placement will be the nose. The nose is usually in an elongated upside-down U shape. For this particular face the bottom will be offset It should start just below the eyes in the very middle, and go up at least halfway. This shows the length of the nose and gives it depth.
Spongebob's cheeks will come next. They are represented by half circles, usually in red, and cover the bottom sides of his eyes.
For this particular Spongebob expression I will do a wide open mouth smile. You will draw the corner details of the mouth inside the cheek area and make a shallow crescent shape to connect the mouth to both corners then draw the deeper crescent shape to make to open mouth expression.
You will want to now draw more of the details. For the eye details you will do 2 small circles inside each other, the outer ring will be blue, the inner circle will be black. You will draw 3 bold eyelashes on the top of each eye, try to space these evenly. For the mouth you will need to add Spongebob's gaped buck teeth. Two small squares evenly spaced. And his tongue will look essentially like a small hill. Then his chin detail is a small red/pink line that goes across his face below his mouth, it will be a slight S shape on its side. He will also get 3 red freckles on each of his cheeks above the mouth corners.
Colour him in!
After you have all the details down, colour him in! The "holes on his face are grey and in the corners of his face. The inside of his mouth is a maroon/pink and his tongue is a light pink. Have fun drawing him! He is made of super simple shapes and Bright colours, therefore pretty easy to execute!
Try out some more!
You can use these exact same principles to drawn any expression on Spongebob's face that you want simply by changing a few lines! You can easily turn his happy face into a tired expression by adding simple eyelids and a droopy mouth.Take a look at the picture below and try drawing some of the many different expressions of Spongebob, or create one of your own! But most importantly, don't forget to have fun!
