Step 3: Eyes

We have finally achieved the needed head shape. Now, let’s draw the eyes. We’ll start from the left eye. Using the Ellipse Tool (L) draw a 50 by 68 pixels ellipse. Give it a white fill and a 2pt black stroke.

To create the pupil of the eye, select “none” for the stroke and black as fill color and with you Ellipse Tool still selected draw a small ellipse inside the eye. Then change the fill color to white again and draw an even smaller ellipse for the highlight.

Make a copy of the whole eye and move it to the right. Make the right eye smaller, not as tall as the left one.

Rotate the pupils of both of the eyes clockwise just a bit.

Step 5: Ear and Mouth

Grab your Pen Tool once again and try to draw a small ear path on Ferb’s head. Apply the same fill/stroke colors as for the rest of the skin.

Draw one additional decorative path inside this one.

Step 6: Hair

Create a new layer above the “Head” and name it “Hair“. Select the Pen Tool, set #1BAD5A as fill color and #0D8744 as stroke color and draw the hair path as you see in the image. This requires some basic pen tool drawing skills.

For the shirt, start from an unfinished square path, and then (using Pen Tool) continue to the right sleeve.

You shouldn’t worry about that little gap, we’ll cover it later. Fill this path with #FDF5AD.

Use the Ellipse Tool to draw a button on the shirt, give it a white fill and a 20% gray, 2pt stroke.

The collar can be created by uniting two triangles using Pathfinder’s Unite command or using Pen Tool, which I found easier and faster to do.

Step 8: Pants

Create a new layer above the rest and name it “Pants“. Set #55348E as fill color and black as stroke color, grab your Rounded Rectangle Tool and draw a rectangle.

Use the Eraser Tool (Shift + E) to delete the top part of the rectangle. Try to keep two additional anchor points as you see in the image.

Select those anchor points and move them up and to the sides.

Select the Pen Tool again and draw a short curved leg with the same fill/stroke colors.

Step 9: Legs and Shoes

Use Pen Tool to draw the visible part of the leg, apply the same settings for fill and stroke colors as the rest of the skin.

For the sole of the shoes, draw a ellipse filled with white and with a 2pt black stroke, rotate it clockwise just a little.

Make a copy of this path, make it smaller and fill with black.

Using Pen Tool with default fill, colors settings (press “D” to reset to defaults) and a 2pt stroke decorate the shoe and draw the sock.

Select the whole leg with the shoe, make a copy of it, reflect it and place it on the right side of the body.

Step 10: Hands

The fastest way to draw the hands is using the Pen Tool, this requires some skills, so give it a couple of tries. Start by drawing the outer edge of the right hand and Little finger on the “Shirt” layer.

Then, continue with the rest of the fingers and the inner part of the hand.
 of 35 How To Draw Ferb Step By Step

Just like we did with legs, make a copy of it, reflect and paste it under the left sleeve.

And the last detail, choose #7480BD as fill color, press “M” to select the Rectangle Tool and draw 4 rectangles of different width to illustrate the belt.
