How to draw Tom and Jerry together

Rekindle your love for the classic comedic duo with a pencil and paper. This tutorial brings you a step-by-step guide on how to draw the iconic characters, Tom and Jerry. Take a trip down memory lane as you sketch the mischievous Jerry, with cheese in hand, standing beside the ever-determined Tom, both sporting their contagious happy faces.

Sketching Tom and Jerry: Key Points to Remember

Before we delve into our drawing adventure, let’s recap who Tom and Jerry are. Tom, originally named Jasper, is a gray and white domestic shorthair cat who despite his size and energy, finds himself always outwitted by the small brown house mouse, Jerry. Drawing these characters involves keeping some key elements in mind:

  • Size Proportions: Tom is considerably larger than Jerry.
  • Facial Expressions: Tom often wears an expression of determination or frustration, while Jerry has a cheeky smile (but both of them have happy expressions in our drawing).
  • Color Palette: Tom is gray, light-gray, yellow, red, pink and white, while Jerry is brown and beige with pink for inner part of ears.
  • Additional Details: You can add a slice of cheese in Jerry’s hands, a common symbol of his triumphs over Tom.

Looking to expand your drawing? Consider adding other similar characters like Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks and Sylvester and Tweety. This can provide a fun and challenging addition to your artwork.

Understanding the Guide

Our guide comprises 21 steps, with the first step focusing on setting the basic sketch structure before drawing each character. Each step uses a color-coding system for clarity:

  • Red Color: This represents the current step you should focus on.
  • Grey Color: Denotes the basic sketch lines that help to set the proportion.
  • Black Color: Signifies the lines that you have already drawn.

After completing the sketch, you can choose to ink your drawing. Inking enhances the sketch’s visibility and permanence, but remember to wait until the ink dries before gently erasing the pencil lines to avoid smudges. The last image in the guide provides a color reference to assist you in the coloring process.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I draw Jerry’s hands holding the cheese?

How can I capture the characters’ expressions effectively?

Capturing the characters’ expressions comes down to focusing on the eyes and mouth. Tom often has wide, surprised eyes and a big, open mouth, indicating his constant bewilderment. On the other hand, Jerry’s eyes are wide open with a cheeky grin, portraying his sly demeanor.
