How to draw minion trying to escape the prison

If you’ve ever chuckled at the amusing antics of the Minions from Despicable Me, you’re in for a treat. Picture this: a Minion, deep in thought, reading a book titled “How to Escape Prison”, and as classic to their nature, holding it upside down! All this while he’s sitting on a toilet and chained to a heavy metal ball. Ready to bring this scene to life? Let’s embark on this “how to draw” journey!

Character Focus Points and Details

  • Facial Expressions: Capture the Minion’s innocence and quizzical look as he tries to decipher the upside-down book.
  • Book Title: The comical “How to Escape Prison” title prominently displayed, even if it’s upside-down!
  • Sitting Pose: The relaxed yet focused posture of the Minion as he sits on the toilet, absorbed in his reading.
  • Chain and Metal Ball: Detailing the chain’s links and the weighty look of the metal ball.

Once you master this Minion, consider adding other characters like Gru, Lucy, or even Dru for a fuller scene. It’s all about letting your creativity soar.

Understanding the Guide’s Structure

Every good artwork starts with a plan. Our guide comprises 12 steps to achieve our quirky Minion masterpiece. Before we deep dive:

  • Red Color: Indicates the current step of the drawing.
  • Black Color: Highlights the lines you’ve drawn in the previous steps.
  • Grey Color: Represents the initial basic sketch for proportion guidelines. Remember, these initial sketches should be drawn with light pencil strokes for easy adjustments later.

Starting with the initial step, we’ll lay the foundation with a basic sketch. Once you’ve completed the entire sketch, you can opt to ink it. If you do, ensure you let the ink dry before erasing the pencil marks to avoid smudging.
