Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Bart Simpson

How to Draw Bart Simpson: Step 1

1. Begin by drawing Bart's head. To draw the sides of the head, use a pair of vertical curved lines. Then, connect them at the top using a zigzag line to form Bart's spikey hair.

2. Draw the bottom of Bart's face. Use a curved line to extend one side of the head, looping it around beneath the shape to form the upper lip. Draw a curved line beneath it, completing the mouth and the neck. On the opposite side, use a "C" shaped line to form the ear. Detail the inside with additional curved lines. Use a short curved line to complete the neck.

7. Extend curved lines from below the arms. Connect them using a curved line, enclosing the bottom of the shirt. Then, extend a pair of curved lines downward from each side of the shirt. Extend a short line from each side toward the middle, but don't allow them to meet; one line should culminate above the other. Connect them with a straight line, fully enclosing Bart's shorts.
