If you draw spongebob the very first time, I would recommend enlarging this picture and printing it out. It will be much easier to draw than from the screen of your computer.

  • Step No.1
  • Draw an outline of the body. Do it by holding your pencil tilted, the lines will be wider and drawing process easier.

    Notice the body pose of Spongebob. He is happy and jumping and his body bends backwards.

    His body is a rectangle but it is wider on the top. His hips are squared, because he is Spongebob squarepants ;-)

  • Step No.2
  • Divide his face into four quarters by drawing two cross lines. These two cross lines must be perpendicular with the outer edges of the body.

    Draw two circles in the upper area. Notice that they intersect each other a little.

    Draw the mouth exactly as you see it on the picture. Make as many pencil lines as you want, you can always erase them later. The point is to capture the shape.

    Draw the sleeves of Spongebob’s shirt, pants and you can slightly mark out his arms. Note the detail, that the sleeves are cone shaped.

  • Step No.3
  • This is very important step in the entire process. Here you will outline basically all body parts. Here you will completely understand how to draw Spongebeob.

    Draw two smaller circles into his eyes. On the top of each eye, draw 3 thick eyelashes.

    Nose. Instead of describing how to draw it, just see that his nose is bended and covers the lower part of his eye.

    Draw two buckteeth and the tongue.

    Now you can sketch his hands just by simple pencil lines, yes draw as many lines as you feel necessary. His palms are opened up.

    The point here is, to capture the direction and the curves of his fingers.

    See how I extended a help-line from the corners of his head to catch the right position of his palms.

    Draw the collar of his shirt, the necktie and the belt in his square pants.

    Legs. I think this is easy and need not any special explanation. The point is: to capture and draw the shoes - the same size.

  • Step No.4
  • It is time to start to erase the excess pencil lines and draw more exact body outlines.

    Draw the shape of the hands, fingers and legs. Always follow the sketches of the limbs you made in the previous step.

    Spongebob’s body should look spongy. Draw bumpy lines over edges of the initial body contours so it gives an impression of spongy texture.

    Also, add some sponge-holes here and there on his face and on side of the body.

  • Step No.5
  • Finish both hands and legs and gradually start to erase excess pencil lines, (excess noise) and draw a sharper body outline.

    At this stage you have your spongebob drawing virtually ready.

  • Step No.6
  • The last step is to completely erase all unnecessary dust and unnecessary pencil lines so the spongebob will beautifully come up, smile and jump!
