Make your very own “Despicable Me” character! Download the PDF guide for extra steps. When you are finished, you can choose to color your minion or stick to a black outline.
What You’ll Need:
masking tape roll
other circle shapes for tracing (like small cup, packing tape roll, small plate)
Using a masking tape roll or circular object, trace a semi-circle along the top.
Move the tape roll down directly below the semi-circle you just made and trace it again, but only the bottom half.
You should have a double scoop ice-cream shape. Now, make straight lines where the circles start to curve in.
Erase the curved parts and you should end up with one big oval!
Now use a smaller circle to trace the first half of the goggles. Make it a semi-circle.
Make another semi-circle on the other side. They should overlap to create the shape of the goggles.
Use an even smaller circle to trace the two eyes in the goggles. These should be big but not touch! You can also draw this part by hand.
Draw two pupils on the inside of the eyes. These should be about the size of a dime.
Draw little reflections in the pupils, then shade the rest in. Add little side straps to the googles as well.
Add a smile with some teeth.
Add a few lines for the overalls.
Add legs and feet.
Add hands with gloves.
Shade in the boots and gloves, and add a pocket in the front.
Add final details like the minion’s hair, pocket logo and overall straps, then use a black pen for the outline. Bonus: color in your minion!
