Start by drawing a circle for Santa’s head
Now we will sketch the beard. From the left of the circle, lightly sketch a curved line that slightly curves outward from the bottom.
Repeat the same process for the right side of the head.
Draw two circles in the middle for the eyes and then draw another circle within them and darken them. After that, draw a half circle for the nose.
Starting from the nose, draw two curved “s” shapes from each side of the nose for the mustache.
Draw 2 short lines at the bottom of those lines to give the mustache more shape. This is the mustache’s shadow
Continue the shadow by drawing another shadow in the shape of the nose and mustache we just did.
Draw two lines on each side below the nose to connect the mustache to the nose area.
Now we finish the beard by drawing two opposite lines at the end of each side of the circle we drew, and we draw these lines down to the end of each mustache.
After that, we draw the beginning of the Santa hat in the middle of the circle, which looks like a hotdog.
Now it’s time to draw his hat. starting from the left end of the hotdog shape, draw a curved line going to the top. When about the center of the picture, draw another curved line going down. On the right side, just draw a curved line starting from the circle.
Now draw a circle at the end of the hat.
Erase all visible guidelines obstructing the face and hat.
Now you’re done! You can now color in Santa to make him look more real.
There you have it! You now know how to draw a cartoon Santa Claus. Have fun and show off your masterpiece to your family and friends! Happy drawing!
