How to Draw Stan Smith from American Dad

Today we are going to draw the head of the Smith family – Stan Smith. Stan is the main protagonist of the series “American Dad” authored by Seth Macfarlane (creator of Family Guy).

 Despite the weird title, the series was very high quality and distinctive, has its own atmosphere and stylistics of humor.

Stan Smith is the stereotypical CIA agent, a real superhero and an exemplary family man. He looks very grotesque with his huge chin that almost more than the rest of the body. And so, let’s learn how to draw Stan Smith from American Dad.


Step 1

At the first step we draw the stickman. The proportions of the body have little to do with the proportions of a real man. As we have said, Stan Smith is very grotesque, and it is already noticeable in the first step. So, draw the head, using a big circle. Using simple lines, sketch out the body. Pay attention to the broad shoulders and the ratio of the lengths of the trunk and legs: the body is very long, and the legs are disproportionately short.

Step 2

Now create a silhouette of Stan Smith, adding volume to his figure. Hands and feet are represented by cylinders. The body tapers down due to a very broad chest and narrow waist. Do not forget about the hallmark of our hero – a huge strong-willed (as he described) chin. Here we outline the pair of facial lines – vertical (shows us the facial symmetry) and horizontal (line of the eyes).
