How To Draw Ferb
What are Ferb's fingers shaped like?
I'm going to show you how to draw Ferb from "Phineas and Ferb". Basically, if we start with his face, which is probably the easiest thing to do, we start with the outline of his face. So we put a straight line here and then you want to come up, but you want to come out slightly, which is going to be the shape of his face, and you come along at the top and down. So basically, you've got a rectangle but it's slightly wider at the top than it is at the bottom. So, in this shape that you've drawn, you're going to put, first of all, you're going to put the eyes so you're going to put one circle here and you're going to do a larger circle joining this one. So, this one is actually going to go outside of the rectangle that you've drawn and darken it up. Put in his eyeballs - so, you do that and you do it like a circle, shading in the center but leaving a white patch for the light gleaming off the eye, and that's the eyes. Now, we move on to the nose, so if the eye that you have just drawn, the larger one of the two, if you just do a line coming off of there and back in towards the face to just join it on to your sort of rectangular shape, that way, you've got his nose, from there, if you come down, but you want to come slightly out on the shape that you've drawn because his lip sort of protrudes. So, you come out and then back in for his smile like that, and then the line that you've got here - that one's fine. So, going up on the back end, you come up and then just lower than where his eyes are, you're going to put a mark like that, which is like a reverse C and then do just a squiggle in there for his ear. Now, we are going to come up and we are going to do the hair. So you've already got the shape of the face here, and for the hair, it's just like a spiky pattern, so this will come out round, it comes up. If one bit doesn't quite go where you want it, you can either just leave it there because it is only the hair. It's not all precise anyway, so we just join it up and we go like that. Now, we come onto the body. So, first of all, we are going to do the collar on his shirt so you just make the line that you've got for the bottom of his face slightly wider and you come down and back up and down and back up. It's just like that. That is, it's basically like a W. Now, for his main part of his body, you can just do a normal rectangle this time. It doesn't have to get wider. It's just a normal rectangle off of the collar. Now, we shall - on the side - we shall just do a couple of lines here which are going to be his arms, a couple there and on the other side. Roughly, so they need to be sort of the same sort of length there, and you just join the bottoms up which is going to be his shirt and then you come, two lines of off there, two lines off of here, coming down to his arms and then we move to his hands. His hands are quite easy. You just sort of do a little line, and that one there to do his thumbs, and then the fingers. Just little sausage shapes - you can either do them together or apart depending on how you want to draw him standing - and you come down. I'm doing them slightly apart but it's probably a bit easier to do them together, but it just depends on what you would like in your drawing. And anyway, so you've got the body shape here. So you've just got to put the legs on before we fill in the details so you're going to put two lines there, and two lines here, and on the bottom of them, you're going to draw a little rectangle like that and a little rectangle like that. All you've got left to do on the bottom here are his sort of his ankles which are sticking out the bottom of his turn-ups and his shoes which you just sort of do, that sort of shape. It's nice and easy and you just come around making sure they both fit the same size, otherwise it's going to look a bit odd. And you've got the feet. So if you put a line - in the one that you've already just drawn- if you do a line just slightly up from the bottom, that is going to be the soles of his shoes and you put a little line on the front and then we can just shade the shoes in. And there we go. Now, all we are left really is the detail in his sort of dungaree type things. You come up here and if you come up to nearly where you've drawn his arms, round about, and you come in a little bit, then if you just do a little V shape, then come back up ,so you come in and you've got a V there. You go along to the other side and you've got the shape of the body and the dungarees. You've got a circle here. That's one of the buttons on his shirt and at the top of his sort of dungarees, he has like, some squares. So you just do a few squares here. It doesn't matter if they are a little bit further closer together. Further apart, closer together, it doesn't really matter and that's the basic shape. This body here does, where you've drawn a rectangle, it looks a little square so as you come down towards the bottom, where the legs are, you can just sort of round it out a little bit, and round it out there. You come back up and darken up a few lines here and there. And that is how to draw Ferb from "Phineas and Ferb".|How to draw the cartoon character Ferb? A step-by-step instructional video by cartoonist Mark Wood will guide you through the pencil line drawing of the head and face, body, arms, hands, legs, feet and dungarees of the Phineas and Ferb star. You will easily construct a professional outline rendering of the character by the end of the video using a simple combination of basic shapes such as rectangles, straight lines, curves and circles as you follow Mark's demonstration drawing.
