Make an oval or oblong shape for the head and then draw in the angular body. Make one face guide and move along.


Next, draw out the simple straw style hat like most scarecrows wear, and then add some simple detailing under the lid, and on the top left side.


Thicken and shape out the face lining like so, and then draw in some bangs for the scarecrows straw hairstyle.


Make oblong shaped eyes, thicken the bottom lining as you add some lashes, and then draw in the eyeballs, nose, and blush marks on the cheeks.


Proceed onto drawing out a very simple body shape that is both stiff, and boxy looking. Make the lining for the straps of the overalls, and then make a line in the lower middle for the legs.


Finish the scarecrow by drawing out the hay style hands, and feet and then draw out two small round buttons. Clean up the drawing freeing it from mistakes and guidelines.
