Learn how to draw a pirate, once the most feared character on the planet! Indeed, pirates are a big part of history. So big that movies and books involving pirates are still quite popular today. The sea is safer now, but there are still some criminals that are tempted to attack other ships to steal merchandises. Let's see how we can draw a traditional cartoon pirate using only simple shapes and just a few basic details.

Step 1

Nice! Let's move along and draw a large oval shape to represent the head of this adorable cartoon pirate. The body and the pants are made from both a long and short rectangle.

Another complex step! Draw some pupils using circles. The mouth is made from a pointed line, just like the nose is. A thin beard can be added around the mouth. Look at the picture below to help you sketch the shape of the hat properly.
