Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
The hit television cartoon Spongebob Squarepants debuted on the Nickelodeon network in 1999. The show’s eclectic cast of characters and slapstick comedy have delighted children and adults for decades.
Spongebob Squarepants is just as his name suggests – he is an ocean dwelling sponge, yellow in color and square in shape like a household cleaning sponge. He lives in a pineapple and works at a restaurant called the Krusty Krab. His undersea adventures include his friends Patrick Star, Sandy the squirrel, Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and the villainous Plankton.

Would you like to draw your very own Spongebob Squarepants? Now you can, using this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you need to draw Spongebob is a piece of paper and something to draw with – a pencil, marker, or pen. You may also want to use colored pencils, crayons, or markers to color Spongebob when you are finished.
Each step of this drawing guide is illustrated by a simple picture. Notice the blue lines in each illustration – they represent new lines added to the drawing in that step. You may want to sketch lightly at first, and keep an eraser handy, as you will need to erase some of the early lines as you go along.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Spongebob
Begin by drawing a large, curved square. To the right of the square, draw a curved rectangle to create a three dimensional effect. This cube-like shape will form Spongebob’s face and body.
Draw an irregular oval shape extending from the rectangle on the right of the figure. On the left, draw a half oval connected to the figure. These shapes begin Spongebob’s arms.
In the left circle, draw two short, curved lines. In the right circle, you will draw a “thumbs up.” Do this by first drawing a curved line in a tight “U” shape extending from the top of the hand. Then, on the right side of the hand, draw three curved lines to form three fingers folded over the hand.
Draw Spongebob’s shoes. Connect the ends of the leg lines using short, curved lines. Draw a curved line extending outward and looping back beneath the foot. Draw a short, straight line down from the end of this line to form the front of the heel. From the back of the leg, draw a curved line and then a short, slightly curved line. Connect this line to the shoe, in front of the heel line, using a curved line. Repeat for the other foot.
Draw a curved line below the mouth. Then, place a circle within each of the small ovals. Finally, draw an even smaller circle within each circle.
Draw the belt around the pants using five straight lines. Place three short, straight eyelashes above each eye, and detail the body with many irregular circles and ovals.
