Drawing cartoon aliens: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Area 51, in Nevada, is a legendary military base that is considered a haven for aliens.
  • In Canada only, 736 UFO sightings have been reported in 2007.
  • Probably the most popular icon in Sci-fi movies!

Step 1

How to draw cartoon aliens step 1

Before learning how to draw aliens, let's see what we should expect from this lovely creature. Aliens usually have big black eyes (1). They also have long arms (2) and fingers (4) and a tiny waist. The feet are thin and long (6). Even if in this example we have a female alien, all of the above will apply to men too. Finally, notice the strange color of the skin: gray!

Step 2

The shape of the alien is a little bit similar to the one of the zombie. Long arms and legs, small waist... the only major difference is the head. While in this example our little alien friend looks more like a human in gray, those creatures usually have a disproportionate head. The eyes are big, black and scary.

Step 3

Are you ready to learn how to draw an alien? OK! Let's start! First draw an oval for the head and one for the body. Don't forget to draw the bottom of the head and the top of the body a little narrower. 

Then draw two small legs and feet. Next, sketch some arms using rectangles. Draw the outline and then erase those shapes. Finish your work by adding the eyes and the mouth. Voila!

Step 4

Since no one has ever seen an alien (really?... I don't know!), you're only limited by your imagination! You can go for the classic look (3) (4) or something more funny (2). Whatever you do, be creative and try anything... anything that you can think of! 

Have fun and please, if you really see an alien one day, take a good picture! The images on this page are cool but nothing compares to the real thing!
