Step 1

Mark off the width, height and main proportions of Donald’s figure. Draw an oval for the character’s head, and a centre line.

Draw the shapes of his body and neck. Using an oval, show the shape of the hat.

Step 3

Add guidelines for the legs, wings, the centre line of the beak, and Donald’s eyes and eyebrows.

Step 4

Outline the thighs, shapes of his wings, beak, and hat base.

Step 5

Sketch Donald’s feet, tail, sailor’s jacket, the crown of his hat, and eyes. Detail the shapes of hiss wings and beak.

Step 6

Add a bow knot on the sailor’s jacket, a ribbon on the hat, and Donald’s eye pupils, eyebrows, and tongue. Refine the shape of the sailor’s jacket.

Step 7

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to the details.

Contour the figure, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Draw the details carefully and add the ground. Erase all the guidelines.
