How to Draw the Grinch Step By Step
- Before you start, listen to the song, You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch to get in the mood for drawing this very naughty dude. And begin by drawing his nasty, wasty small, black mushroom nose in the center of your paper. Next, come his greedy-seedy eyes with black drops and white specks. Ew!
- For his termite-filled smile, draw a wide W-shaped mouth and top it off with 2 small curved lines like sad faces.
- His slippery eel eyebrows and cactus needle eyelashes are next. So add downward sloping eyebrows to show anger and 3 lashes at the top of each eye to show his evil plans.
- His little pointed head is hidden under Santa’s hat. So in this step, draw the sides of his head and then draw a scalloped hat band and a rounded triangle to start his hat. But you are not finished yet, draw a sideways ice cream cone shape and a fluffy ball shape to complete the hat.
- Have you ever hugged a cactus? The Grinch is as cuddly as a cactus, so maybe that’s why he has a skinny, pointed neck? Draw that chicken neck next.
- All the nice scalloped collars and soft red velvet coats can’t hide his empty heart and garlicky soul. So finish this step by adding a collar and 2 lines for his coat and you’re done!
- Use your colors to bring your Grinch drawing to life! Remember, never give him your personal information and read the book or watch the movie to learn how the Grinch stole Christmas!
