How to Draw a Great Looking Bart Simpson for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - 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.
