Drawing a cartoon Santa: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • St. Nicholas probably lived near 350 AD.
  • He's known as Black Peter in Morocco.
  • If Santa travels from east to west, then the day of Christmas would last 31 hours because of the different time zones!

Step 1

This tutorial will help you learn how to draw a cool Santa Claus! This very well-known character is easily recognizable with his nice red hat (5), his long white beard (6) and his big black belt (2). Santa also wears white gloves (7), a red suit and some black boot (4). Usually, Santa is a little overweight. Still, he's able to fly in the sky to deliver all his gifts.

Step 2

Our big Santa is mostly made of circles and rectangles. His head is made of a circle, the body and the arms are made with rectangles while the beard is created with half of a circle. 

His feet are tiny compared to the rest of his body. In this case, Santa really has a big head. You could draw one a little smaller and the result would also be great! Let's try to draw one the easiest way possible!

Step 3

Start by sketching an oval for the body and two rectangles for the head and the hat. Next, add two rectangles for the hands and two more for the feet. Then, work on the outline of Santa to make it more precise, more accurate.

At this stage, you can draw the beard and the hat. Continue your work by sketching the belt and the bag of Santa. Finish your drawing by adding the eyes, the nose, the mouth and the buttons.
