Easy Cartoon Pirate step-by-step drawing tutorial: step 1

1. Begin the easy cartoon pirate outline by drawing the face. Draw two curved lines for the eyelids, and enclose half-circle-shaped eyes below them. Shade one semicircle, as it will become the eyepatch. Shade a small circle to indicate the pupil in the other.

Contour the eye with a short curved line below it, and draw a "C" shaped line for the nose.
