Invader Zim drawing guide pt 1 by Sapphire4723 Invader Zim drawing guide pt 1 by Sapphire4723
Well, many people have been asking for a guide to drawing Invader Zim characters, so I decided to finally respond to that request! However, there's so much to cover with drawing Invader Zim characters that I decided to divide this tutorial into parts. As it says at the bottom of this tutorial, I'm open-minded to additional ideas for tutorials concerning Invader Zim drawing topics. Feel free to give your suggestions below!

However, do note that I am already planning on making tutorials for the following topics:

1. Invader Zim heads (they're so complicated, they require a tutorial of their own)

2. Advanced Character Drawing, which covers specific details of drawing the main characters, such as Gir, Gaz, Zim, Dib, and others.

3. How to Train Yourself to Draw the Invader Zim Style

Ahhh! This is so helpful! :D I can't seem to find parts 2 and 3, though, which is a bit of a shame. But other than that, this is gonna help me out a lot.

This is great! I really would like to learn how to draw in the style of Invader Zim. Trust me, it would be very useful. I thing that you should make something like a chart for things like the types of hairstyles, hand positions, and emotions. I tend to find those challenging for me.

Thank you. This has helped me a lot. I have trouble drawing characters in their original style and I believe that characters are always at their best when in style.

Very interesting! Thanks so much for posting this! I really can't wait to see the advanced one. Gaz is extremely hard for me to draw. Sometimes I have trouble with the character's facial expressions of the Zim characters though too. This tutorial was very helpful, so thanks! ^_^ I think it would be cool to see some of the taller characters' construction too, like Mrs. Bitters, Proffessor Membraine and The Tallest.

I think a phoneme mouth shape lip syncing guide for Zim (typical Irken) and Dib (standard human) would be extremely helpful. In 3/4 and front view. You should be able to do that in your sleep XD.

I was planning on covering those aspects in the 'head' tutorial, but thanks for mentioning it anyways! It's something that should definitely be covered. I've heard that one of the biggest complaints about drawing IZ characters, other than body proportions, is getting the mouth/teeth right.

Thanks! This really helps. I could never get the arms and legs right. And the proportions.XD
