Hello, dear readers! Today we have prepared for you a new drawing tutorial, which will tell you how to draw Squidward.

Perhaps this character from the animated series SpongeBob – square pants will be more colorful than  the protagonist. Indeed, it is impossible not to remember this phlegmatic octopus, which periodically expresses very interesting and witty thoughts.

So, let’s start this drawing lesson, and learn how to draw Squidward!


Step 1

We start drawing our hero here with such flattened oval. A bit like a first step of the lesson dedicated to Eric Cartman, but more flattened version.

Step 2

It seems that this step is very difficult, but it is not so. Just try to comply with the sequence, and you will not get confused. First, below the oval draw a small trapezoidal shape, that tapers slightly downwards.

Then, in the bottom of the trapezoid draw the lower part of the mouth, in the form similar to the sad face (which is not surprising). Using two vertical elongated ovals draw the eyes.

Step 3

Outline the contours of the body of Squidward, it has to be long and extended. First, draw a rectangle of the torso, connect it with the head with a thin neck. Then draw the circle below the shape of the torso, and then – tentacles. They are a bit similar to an inverted palm tree, but very schematically drawn.

Step 4

Just a short step. Draw a small sleeve at the top of the torso, also, draw a collar in the area of the neck. Then draw the arms. Note how long forearms look compared to the rest of the arms.

Step 5

Draw the face of Squidward. The line of the eyelid located just slightly higher than the place where the circle moves in an angular shape. By the way, these half-covered eyelids are a great reception in the animation, which is used to transmit a phlegmatic or skeptical look. You can see the same view, for example in the drawing lesson on how to draw Brian Griffin. Don’t forget to draw the wrinkles above the eyes.

Step 6

Finish the lesson on how to draw Squidward from Spongebob Squarepants by adding details. At first, using long lines, separate the tentacles (legs?) of our character. Outline the contours of the back part of the hands and denote the dots on the forehead.
