How to Draw Mermaid Man, Mermaid Man From Spongebob

Artist: Dawn / February 13, 2013

Step 1.

The first thing we will do is draw out a boxy shape for Mermaid Man's head. When you do this sketch in the facial guides. Next, make a large circle for his very round body.

Step 2.

Using the face shape we drew in step one, begin drawing the hairstyle. Since Mermaid Man is a hero from the fifties, his hairstyle is in the older fashion. There should be a curl for his bang, and you should also have his ear drawn out.

Step 3.

Mermaid Man has a starfish on his face that covers the nose. Draw out the eyes first, then the eyebrows. You will then add the shape of the starfish mask, and incorporate the lining for his nose.

Step 4.

Draw the rest of Mermaid Man's face. As you can see he has a square shaped chin that extends to the back of the jaw line. Add the opening of the mouth, then you can proceed to step four.

Step 5.

Draw the ear, then color in the eyeballs, add detailing inside the ear, and then lightly sketch out the stretch marks on the mask.

Step 6.

Draw the shape of the body which is just a big round circle. Draw in his neck, then you can proceed to step six.

Step 7.

Draw Mermaid Man's skinny old arms, then draw in his gloves which are up in the air and clutched into fists.

Step 8.

Draw out the legs, then his slippers for shoes. Be sure to draw his heels that are not covered by his slippers.

Step 9.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw his clothing. Start with the straps, then draw in the shells that act as the buckles. Draw the thick belt around his waist, then sketch in the scales on the body. Erase the mistakes then draw a lar   

Step 10.

Here is Mermaid Man when you're done. Color him in to bring this Spongebob Squarepants character to life.
