Begin by sketching SpongeBob SquarePants with a pencil. In the beginning, stages, don’t press down too hard. When sketching, use light, smooth strokes.
Start by drawing a rectangle near the middle of the page to draw Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants. Draw three straight lines on the right side of the rectangle to make the shape look like a brick on its end. The basic shape of SpongeBob SquarePants’ body will be this.
Draw two horizontal lines and a vertical line down the centre of the rectangle. Draw the first horizontal line above the rectangle’s centre, then the second closer to the bottom and across the rectangle’s side. These are construction lines that will assist you in later positioning SpongeBob SquarePants’ features.
Draw a line in between the two horizontal construction lines on the left side. Draw a line that goes up and to the left. On the opposite side of the rectangle, draw a line that goes straight away from his body, then sharply angles back for a while, also going downward. On the tips of these lines, draw a small circle. Draw two ovals on the ends of two lines beneath SpongeBob’s body. These are instructions for drawing SpongeBob SquarePants’ appendages in the future.
To the right of the vertical line that sits atop the horizontal construction line, draw a circle. Draw a second circle to the left of the first, just slightly overlapping it. SpongeBob SquarePants’ eyes will be these.
Draw SpongeBob SquarePants’ nose like a long oval starting where the horizontal and vertical lines intersect and angled up to overlap the left eye. Draw a slightly curved line beneath his nose that ends on the horizontal construction line to represent his mouth. Draw another U-shaped curve in light yellow with a light olive green outline underneath it.
