How to Draw Jerry

Artist: Dawn / October 1, 2008

Step 1.

Start this first step by drawing the guidelines and shapes of Jerry. You will first make a big circle for his head and then add his facial guidelines in. Add the neck line as well as a small oval shape for the body.

Step 2.

Using what we just made in step one start sketching out the structure of Jerry's face starting with the forehead, large mouse ears, and then draw the cheek and hair.

Step 3.

Add some inner ear detailing as you see here and then use the face guide to draw the oblong eyes, as well as color in the pupils. Sketch in his feminine lashes, and draw eyebrows. Draw the snout as well as the nose. Draw three whiskers on each side o   

Step 4.

Draw the chest, left shoulder and then the right shoulder as well as his arm and hand. Later the hand will be holding cheese.

Step 5.

Draw the left arm, and then draw in your triangular shape of cheese. Draw the holes in the cheese and move along.

Step 6.

Draw in the lower half of his body like the back, butt, and tail. Next, draw the legs and small mouse feet as well as the toe lines.

Step 7.

Finish Jerry the mouse by drawing the belly marking, as well as the holes in the mouse cheese. Clean up the sketch and lets see what he looks like all cleaned.

Step 8.

Your line art for Jerry should look as good as the mouse you see before you now. Color him in and place him next to his rival Tom.

Description: In this second drawing tutorial I am going to show you an easy way to teach yourself "how to draw Jerry" the mouse from Tom and Jerry. This animated television series became a pop sensation back in 1940. Even though they stopped making the original characters back in the late sixties. Jerry the mouse is your typical brown colored mouse that lives in a little hole in the walls of Tom's residence. Jerry is a very independent and opportunistic kind of mouse that always knows how to out smart Tom with any situation that may fall in his lap. To be honest I think Tom would do just fine if Jerry wasn't in the picture. I mean if you think about it, Jerry is the one that antagonizes the situation when Tom wants to be left alone. Even though Tom is bigger than Jerry, Jerry is by far the most smartest and most energetic. Jerry if you notice has incredible strength for his size. He is able to lift objects that are so much bigger than him like 2x4's and huge cast iron pans. Sometimes you see Jerry joined with a little gray orphan mouse called Nibbles. He is often seen eating loads of food and becoming very full and fat looking like a round tennis ball. Another animal that often helps Jerry get rid of Tom is Spike the Bulldog and his half pint sized son Tyke. But the relationship with Tom isn't always bad, there are some episodes where they actually care and have empathy for each other as seen in one of the shorts when Jerry was thrown out in the freezing cold. Tom felt bad and retrieved little Jerry and defrosted him until he was recovered. Of course Jerry took advantage of the situation and used Tom for all he could get. No matter who your favorite character is from the animated shorts and movies, Tom and Jerry is the ultimate classic that even kids of today could enjoy. You will learn how to draw Jerry the mouse from Tom and Jerry step by step. I will be back with more so stay tuned people don't change that channel.
