How to Draw A Cartoon Mummy

This drawing lesson will help you learn to draw a cartoon mummy! A mythical creature coming directly from Egypt, the mummy is one dead body that, in fictional stories, comes back from the grave in search of revenge (or another body to live in). 

Since a mummy is very often portrayed wearing strips of tissues (linen) around its body, that's exactly what we will try to draw in this ancient and scary tutorial!

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon mummy

Start your lesson by sketching a nice and medium circle to illustrate the head of our Egyptian friend. Then, add two rectangles below the head (just look at the illustration above for more details) to create both arms.

Step 2

Add a circle on each end of both arms to represent the hands. You can also draw two oval shapes on the face to form the eyes.

Step 3

Since our mummy is old and walking slowly, we are gonna draw a body that is slightly incline and bent. Draw a rectangle to illustrate this body. Like you can see on the image above, the body is high and the neck is invisible in this position. Sketch a circle to form the hip of your character. Finally, draw a long rectangle to form the left leg.

Step 4

On the end of this leg, sketch a small rectangle to create the left foot. Draw the right leg in two parts using two rectangles (you have no choice since this part of the body is bent on this illustration). You can also draw the right foot using two rectangles.

Step 5

Time to add some strips to our horrifying creature! Work on the head and refine the eyes of your character. He has to look mad and furious!

Step 6

Add some more strips on the arms. Don't hesitate to play with the length of your strips. Your mummy will only look cooler that way! You can sketch a couple of fingers to make your character more menacing!

Step 7

Last, but not least, draw all the strips remaining on the body and the legs of your mummy. Don't forget to keep the back of your character bent and curved.

Step 8

Add some colors to your artwork and you are finished! You can always use some different tones to create darker areas on your character. This will improve the readability of your illustration. 

Notice how the leg and the arm on the back of the drawing are darker. I also added a subtle, darker tone near the neck of the mummy so that the head will stand out better. Congratulations! I hope you had fun drawing this funny cartoon mummy!
