Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Lisa Simpson
Lisa Simpson Drawing - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing Lisa's face. First, draw an incomplete circle. Draw a line across it and shade a small circle within it to complete the eye. Beside the eye, use a curved line to form the nose.
Then, enclose another partial circle, band it with a line, and shade a smaller circle in the middle. Finally, use a series of curved lines to sketch the upper lip and cheek.

4. Enclose a curved triangle partially hidden by Lisa's mouth, and contour it with a curved line. This forms the mouthpiece of her saxophone and should enclose the opening of the mouth.
Then, use a curved line for the front of the torso, and two curved lines for the remaining arm. Draw a curved line across the torso to indicate the top of the dress. Finally, use "U" shaped lines to enclose Lisa's fingers and hand.
