Drawing a generic cartoon Smurf picture – one that you can ‘convert’ into any of the characters from the series with some well-placed details… is a snap – with the help of a simple framework.

The structure taken into account before-hand – helps to visualize the placement of key features… namely *its big white hat!

Let’s get started!

Learn How to Draw a Smurf Picture

Beginning then – go ahead and map out (or just visualize) the structure of your soon-to-be character. Keep in mind – all of the Smurfs have relatively the same form. So really, it helps to work through the lesson first as is – then on your second time through – make it into Brainy, Papa, Joker… or even Smurfette! 🙂

Here we go…

Simple framework for drawing a cartoon smurf

Using some different colors now – map out the hat area (looks like a halo!)… and the positioning of the hands…

Adding details to a simple cartoon smurf image

One eye – and the nose – as seen from this 3/4 turn view…

Drawing the eye and nose of a cartoon smurf

Purposely left a space between the eyes. Smurf eyes aren’t connected like say – Garfield’s. Moving on now with a big ear, and more of the head…

Continuing with the head of a cartoon smurf

Now add some details – a mouth, etc. – and bring the face/head of your Smurf into view…

Drawing a smurf picture - finishing the head

The hat falls perfectly into place – based around a hovering oval. Doesn’t this shape help to map it all out! Pretty simple isn’t it! Oh, and continue on with the right arm/hand…

Sketching the head and hand of the cartoon smurf picture

Next up, add some more curves – bringing the body/right foot into view

Completing the body of a cartoon smurf picture

Now finish your Smurf picture off by sketching in the pant line – and in this case – a ‘thumbs up’!…

And other than this – you’re done!

Now that you’ve completed this generic version of a Smurf – I recommend you tackle the lesson a second time – but stylize your drawing with details to transform it into a specific character from the series.

For example – glasses (Brainy), a beard +red (Popa), long yellow hair and a dress (Smurfette). Of course – there are lots of others too.

Hope you enjoyed the lesson!
