How to Draw: Sleeper

This week's monster comes to us all the way from Galway, Ireland! Here comes Sleeper! Sleeper is very shy and likes to sleep under the bed. He has baggy eyes because he is very sleepy. He has a torch (flashlight) and he sneaks around at night with this torch. Thanks, Paddy C. for this great monster!

How to Draw: Sleeper PDF

Step 1: Draw an oval for Sleeper's head.

Step 2: Draw two thick lines with circles on top for his antennae. They look like lollipops on his head!

Step 3: Two curves from the side of his head make the beginning of Sleeper's ears.

Step 4: Inside those ears, make some semi-circles.

Step 5: Connect those semi-circles to Sleeper's head and outer ear to complete his ears.

Step 6: Draw his sleepy smile and cute nose.

Step 7: Draw his eyes and eyebrows.

Step 8: Sleeper is pretty tall, so draw his long arms with some long, slightly curved lines.

Step 9: Sleeper's jacket can be completed with a few more curved lines. His jacket should be a bit longer than his arms.

Step 10: Draw straight lines down from his jacket to start his legs. Add in a belt.

Step 11: Draw an upside down U for the inside of his legs and then add in the bottom of his pants.

Step 12: From the bottom of Sleeper's pants, add in his long feet with a few curved lines.

Step 13: Draw Sleeper's hands. His right hand can be made mostly out of ovals for the fingers.

Step 14: Add in Sleeper's torch.

Step 15: Sleeper's outfit has a lot of fun patterns. Lightly sketch the pattern for his jacket here. You can make it match this sleeper or you can design your own fun pattern.

Step 16: Now, drawing lightly, design your Sleeper's pants. Circles are always fun to draw!

Step 17: Color Sleeper! I can't wait to see what your sleeper looks like! Have fun with him!
