Below the oval, draw a large rectangle and two long, narrow rectangles. These will become Garfield’s body and legs.
At the bottom of the drawing, add two ovals for the feet.
Now, we will add two shapes that don’t look like much yet, but will be needed later. Add a small triangle on the left side. This will be an upper arm. Also, draw a triangle between the leg-rectangles. This shape will be the tail that’s partially visible behind Garfield.
Next, let’s do the basic shapes for the left arm, paw, and tip of the tail. Draw two rectangles and a circle for the arm and paw. Also, draw a smaller oval at the bottom for the tail.
We’ll want to add some smooth curves for the body – after all, Garfield is lazy and eats a lot. Draw curvy lines on both sides of the upper body, around the upper arm, and add curves for the elbow. At the top, draw two tilted ovals for the ears. Finally, draw a cross across the paw. The cross shape will help us to draw the toes.
Erase the inner lines as they are not needed anymore. Keep the cross at the paw.
Draw a set of small rectangles on the paw for the toes. Also, add a small triangle at the other heel.
Next, we’ll start adding some details. Draw two curving lines inside the ears. Make the tip of the “index finger” rounded. Add a cross across the face to help to place the facial features later.
Draw two overlapping ovals for the big eyes, a small oval for the nose, and a wavy line for the mouth. Place them a little bit to the right side of the face as Garfield’s head is turned a little.
Erase the extra lines from the face and paw.
For the eyes, draw horizontal lines for the lids and half circles for the pupils. For the mouth, draw curvy lines at the both sides and connect them with a long arc. Add some zigzag lines inside the ears for the fur.
Let’s add some more furry textures. Draw sets of curvy lines around the body (don’t forget the tail) and some more curvy lines beside the ears.
Lastly, we’ll complete the paws; add curvy lines for the toes and draw an irregular wavy line under the paws. For the raised paw/palm, add a curve below the thumb. Finally, add some dots at the sides of the mouth for the whiskers.
Now, trace your Garfield drawing with darker lines and color it if you want. At the bottom of the paws, follow the curvy lines we drew in the last step.
A Garfield drawing has a quite a few details but it’s still easy to draw.
