How to draw a Squidward cartoon image

Here, let's learn how to draw Squidward Tentacles - a very popular cartoon character from the ultra-hit show, Spongebob Squarepants! A bigger fan of Spongebob myself, I do like this character... his 'somewhat egotistical ways' make the show that much more enjoyable.

Oh... did you know? He's actually an octopus and not a squid! Just a little 'fun fact' I thought I'd throw in.

And we're off!


First Step - Here's a Simple Guideline for Drawing Squidward

Squidward is actually a fairly straight-forward character to draw. He's composed of a simple shape layout - and even his head specifically, can be broken down into a couple shapes - resembling that of a skull.

Below, I've marked off key points to help you progress with this character...

The grey horizontal lines are important in that they mark off those areas where A - his arms connect, and B - where his 'four squiddish legs' connect. Looking at a reference picture of the character, this is easy enough to do.

OK then. Framework in hand, let's draw!!!!!!!!!!

Second Step - How to Draw Squidward, 1 2 3 - GO!

Not much changes with respect to how to draw this character - in relation to others. Beginning with the eyes and central areas of his face, and working your way outward (and then down the body) from there, drawing him becomes all the more understandable - and doable.

Step by step, this is how it unfolds...

LOL. One look at him finished - and I just have to laugh. A very funny character on the show, it's quite the pleasure to be able to reproduce him in the form of a drawing lesson - so that you can create him too! :-)

Of course - it doesn't stop here. Why not tackle this lesson a second time, see if you can alter his look with the help of some other 'snapshots' of Squidward.

Fin.
