Start by lightly drawing a circle on your paper. Make it a little higher than the middle of the page. Then draw a large shaped “U” below the circle for the jaw.

Lightly draw a line down the middle to use as a guide and one halfway across for where the eyes go. 

Halfway from the center line to the jaw draw another line for the nose and halfway down again draw a line for the mouth. You will erase these later on. 

He has a “monocle” over one eye- draw it first. You can trace around a coin to make a circle. His other eye is blind so I drew it wrinkled and closed and shadowed it lightly. 

The ears are like a figure “8” with a few curved lines inside.

Start the nose with three circles across make the one in the middle bigger. The nostrils are like parenthesis on either side. I only put a shadow on one side of the nose and underneath. 

Give him bushy eyebrows to make up for his bald head.

Keep the mouth simple like a very flat “M” with a shadow underneath for the lower lip. 

Put some lines on both sides of the mouth. 

The neck starts right under the ears.His shoulders slope down.

Draw the operating lamp on his head last. Or maybe two pair of glasses.Erase the extra lines.
