If you're a BIG Family Guy Fan - than learning how to draw Peter Griffin is definitely something you'll be interested in! And yes - that's exactly what we're doing here.

So, got a favorite 'Peter Griffin' moment? For me it's hands down -- Peter VS. The Chicken... we'll say Part I. A little over the top - but exactly why I loved it so much!

Alright - let's get drawing!...


First Step - Peter Griffin's Shape

First thing - before we begin drawing... let's ensure that Peter Griffin's shape is about right. And for sure -- to get his 'shape right' - let's do just that... begin by mapping out the basic-most shapes which compose him.

Of course - if you feel more comfortable skipping on to the drawing part, by all means do. Here's how his form can be drawn ahead of time...

Here - Peter's standing so that his body is turned slightly to *his* right. As such, it helps to map out the centerline, as it would look - moving with the curves on his body. And yes - just like a two-part snowman... a couple circles do a nice job of bringing his form into view.

Well - time to get drawing!

Second Step - How to Draw Peter Griffin's Head

Looking first at the cross - drawn over top the upper circle, soon to be his head... you can see that most of the space (lower) is taken up by his mouth/chin/neck area. Peter's eyes are set WAY UP top - and this is reflected in our framework.

Here's how to draw his head...

Alright - things are coming along quite nicely up to this point. Again, you can see how the circle plays a large role in the shape of Peter's head. The tapering skinnier part at the top is much easier to draw when you can put this into perspective ahead of time!

And now - let's draw the body!

Third Step - How to Draw Peter Griffin's Body

Similar to Homer Simpson (both characters are a little on the large side)... Peter Griffin's body looks more like a pear - the larger lower circle helping to map out his mid-section in the form of a yes - pot belly! Different from Homer though - you'll notice Peter's a tad more complex, with a few extra twists and turns along the way.

Here we go...

See what I mean by 'extra twists and turns'? In his bell area - at his sleeves, and even above his shoes... drawing Mr. Griffin means a little bit more attention paid to detail.

And there you have it! You're done! You now know how to draw Peter Griffin from Family Guy!! :-)
