Hello, dear artists! In today’s drawing lesson, we will show you how to draw Minions from Despicable Me. In our site, we already have another lesson on how to make a minion. And at this lesson, we will draw two minions. So, let’s start this tutorial!


Step 1

At first draw the general shapes of the bodies. Note, that the shapes are very similar to potatoes. And also it should be noted, that in the first steps you should not press down too hard on a pencil.

Step 2

Ok, now draw the vertical and horizontal lines of facial symmetry of the face. Slightly below the line of the eyes sketch out the line of the mouth. Sketch out the hands and legs of minions.

And at the last step we add some shadows. The light comes from the upper left side. So we add shadows to the right sides. At first draw the outlines of the shadows. And then add hatching inside the contours. Paint out the straps and shoes.
