How to Draw Calvin and Hobbes
Calvin and Hobbes is a cartoon of a boy and his stuffed tiger. Mr. Watterson,
the cartoon's creator, lets us share Calvin's imagination as he brings Hobbes
to life and imagines the two sharing many adventures. Mr. Watterson no longer
publishes these stories, but that doesn't mean you can't create your own!
Here are simple step-by-step instructions on how to draw Calvin and Hobbes.
1. Mark a general outline lightly for both Calvin and Hobbes. Their shape
could be generally described as rectangular with curved corners, Hobbes being
more elongated (he is taller than Calvin), Calvin being almost box-like.
2. Add more distinct shapes. Draw a rough circular shape for Calvin's head,
making sure the line across the top is very light, since when you make the
slash like lines for his hair, this guideline will be erased or drawn over.
