We have provided this tutorial which modeled after the basic look of Mark and Dave, who are very standard-looking Minions. You can make changes as explained in certain steps to draw your favorite Minion.

Start with a pencil. Make sure it is well-shaped. Don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.

Step 1: Start with a circle at the top half of the page. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a guide for the Minion’s head. You may change the shape for sketching any other minions.

Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. The lower part of the vertical line should go out of the circle. The length of the vertical line will determine the height of the Minion. If you want a taller Minion, draw the line longer.

Step 3: Draw two small circles on top of the horizontal line, one on either side of the vertical line. These will be guides for the Minion’s eyes. If you want to draw a one-eyed Minion, simply draw a bigger circle in the middle of the line.

Step 4: Under the eyes, draw a shape similar to the letter D on its side as a guide for the Minion’s mouth. Use the bottom of the main circle to help you place the guide for the mouth.

Step 5: Under the head, draw a big U shape as a guide for the Minion’s body. The ends of the U touch the ends of the horizontal construction line.

Step 6: To draw the Minion’s hands, draw two curved lines on both sides of the body. The line on the left should point up toward the head, and the other should drop down to the side of the body. Draw a small circle at the end of each line for the Minion’s hands. Draw thee small lines on the outline of the circle on the left for the fingers.

Step 7: Under the guide for the Minion’s body, draw two small shapes that are similar to rectangles without the tops as guides for the pant cuffs. Under each pant cuff, draw a small U-shaped arc as a guide for the Minion’s shoes.

Step 8: And finally, we have finished the basic Minion shape. Now, it’s time to add a detail design to draw the Minion. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.

Step 9: Make the eyes of the Minion’s bolder.  Follow the outer outline of the two circles and draw another line to create the thick goggles. The end result will look like a number 8 on its side. On both sides of the goggles, draw two little square-like shapes for the goggle straps.

Step 10: Draw a small circle in each eye for the eyeballs. Inside of each eyeball, draw and shade in another circle for the pupil, and then draw a smaller circle on the side to represent glare. Draw a small line on the top and bottom of the goggles for the Minion’s upper and lower eyelids.

Step 11: Bolder the shape of the mouth and draw a few square-like shapes on the upper inside of the Minion’s mouth for the big teeth.

Step 12: Use the top part of the main circle as a guide to drawing the Minion’s head. On top of the head draw a few curved lines to represent the parted hair. You can draw different hair depending on what Minion you’re drawing.

Step 13: Draw two long rectangle-like shapes above the guidelines for the arms for the overall straps. Draw a small circle at the end of each for the buttons. Draw the top part of the overalls under the Minion’s mouth and inside the U-shaped arc of the body.

Step 14: Draw a shape similar to a square with a rounded bottom in the middle portion of the Minion’s overalls for the center pocket. Inside the shape, draw the Gru logo, which consists of a diamond with a G in the middle of it. Use the image above as a reference for the logo. Finish the overalls by drawing the pants portion at the bottom using the small squares as guides.

Step 15: Use the line and circle on the right as guides to draw the Minion’s hand. Follow the path of the line and make it thicker to draw the arm. Use the shape of the circle to form the Minion’s glove and fist.

Step 16: Draw the arm on the left by using the initial lines as guides. Follow the basic path of the line and make the shape thicker. Draw the Minion’s glove, hand, and fingers at the end by thickening up the smaller guidelines.

Step 17: Use the small U-shaped arcs at the bottom as guides to draw the Minion’s shoes. Make the sides of the shoes thicker and draw a thick sole at the bottom.

Step 18: That’s it! Now you have a nice sketch of a Minion from Despicable Me. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look, or continue to the step below to go for a more finished look.

Step 19: For a more finished, inked look, carefully draw over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then erase your pencil marks. You now have a finished inked drawing of a Minion! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Minion drawing in its entirety.

Step 20: For a completely finished Minion drawing, you have to color it. You can use anything you want: markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color the Minion’s skin yellow. The goggle straps, gloves, overall buttons, and boots are black. The goggles are gray, and the Minion’s eyes are brown. His overalls are blue. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of one of Gru’s Minions from Despicable Me.
