Draw a great looking Cartoon Scientist with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions and video tutorial. Great for kids and beginner artists!
A scientist is a person "who conducts scientific research to advance knowledge in an area of interest."
The scientist in our drawing guide resembles Albert Einstein, one of the most famous scientists of the past century. He is known for his special theory of relativity.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Cartoon Scientist
1. Draw a circle. This will help you to form the scientist's head.
2. Erase the upper portion of the circle. Then, draw the face using the remaining portion of the circle to form the chin. Use curved lines to outline the cheeks and forehead, and "C" shaped lines to form the ears.
3. Draw the scientist's hair. Use short, curved lines that meet at jagged points to form the rounded shape of the hair.
4. Detail the scientist's face, erasing as necessary. Contour the inner ears with "C" shaped lines. Draw two sets of circles within circles in the middle of the face. This forms the eyes and the rims of the glasses. Connect the glasses, using a pair of curved lines to form the nosepiece. Give the rims a three-dimensional appearance by drawing a curved line connected to the sides of each. Then, use pairs of curved lines to form the earpieces.
Above each eye, draw a curved line. Then, draw a series of connected, curved lines that meet at jagged points above each. These are the eyebrows. Use a large "U" shaped line to form the nose. Beneath it, Use curved lines to craft the mustache. Draw a short, curved line between the lobes of the mustache to indicate the mouth.
5. Use several "U" shaped lines and overlapping curved lines to enclose the scientist's hand, erasing as necessary. Then, use curved lines to draw the sleeve, shoulder, and neck. Note the curved lines at the wrist and elbow with indicate contours in the fabric.
6. Draw a pair of long, curved lines and connect them at the end with an incomplete oval, forming the outstretched arm. Use curved lines to detail the folds in the fabric. Then, Use curved and "U" shaped lines to draw the fist emerging from the oval-shaped sleeve. Enclose an oval within an oval on top of the hand. Extend straight lines from the bottom of the hand, connecting them with an incomplete circle. This forms a laboratory flask. Draw a horizontal oval across the middle of the flask, indicating the surface of the liquid inside it.
7. Extend two pairs of curved lines from beneath the arms and connect each pair with a curved line. This forms the lab coat. Draw rectangular pockets on each side, and draw a curved line between the sections of the coat. Draw a curved line upward from this line. Draw small circles beside it, indicating the buttons of the shirt.
8. Extend "L" shaped curved lines from each side of the lab coat. Then, connect them using a "V" shaped line, forming the pants. Use curved lines to indicate folds in the fabric.
9. Use overlapping curved lines to outline the shoes. Then, indicate the sole by drawing a curved line parallel to the bottom of each shoe.
