Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Step 1
Draw an "open" box shape. This will be the beginning of Frankenstein's head.
Step 2: Step 2
Draw a straight horizontal line that "hovers" above the open box you just made. This line will form part of Frankenstein's hairline.
Step 3: Step 3
At each end of your horizontal line, add smaller vertical lines, reaching just past the edge of Frankenstein's still open head.
Step 4: Step 4
Draw a zigzag line from one corner of your unconnected vertical lines to the other corner of the other unconnected vertical line to "close" the box and complete Frankenstein's hair.
Step 5: Step 5
Draw two vertical parallel lines from the bottom of Frankenstein's head, this will form his neck.
Step 6: Step 6
Now you will draw two sets of parallel lines coming out of Frankenstein's neck to start his bolts.
Step 7: Step 7
Next, you will "close" the openings of your parallel lines forming your bolts with a "C" shape on the left side, and a backwards "C" shape on the right side. You have now completed Frankenstein's bolts!
Step 8: Step 8
Draw two circles as evenly as possible for Frankenstein's eyes, inside the box that makes up his head.
Step 9: Step 9
Add two colored-in circles inside Frankenstein's eyes you just formed. These two colored in circles will serve as Frankenstein's pupils.
Step 10: Step 10
Add a small "U" shape for Frankenstein's nose.
Step 11: Step 11
Add a more relaxed "U" shape for Frankenstein's mouth. You could also use a zigzag line if you prefer a more menacing Frankenstein.
Step 12: Step 12
Draw two horizontal lines outward from each side of Frankenstein's neck.
Step 13: Step 13
Draw two vertical lines downward to form the outside of Frankenstein's arms.
Step 14: Step 14
Draw two horizontal lines inward to form the hand openings of what will be Frankenstein's jacket.
Step 15: Step 15
Draw two horizontal lines to form the inside of Frankenstein's arms. They will also serve as the sleeves to Frankenstein's jacket.
Step 16: Step 16
Draw a "Y" shape to build the inside of Frankenstein's jacket. The top of the "Y" will serve as the neckline, the bottom as the seam of his shirt.
Step 17: Step 17
Add two lines to each short side of the "Y" to form triangles, this will will form Frankenstein's jacket lapels.
Step 18: Step 18
Add a "U" shape to the bottom of Frankenstein's left jacket arm to form his hand.
Step 19: Step 19
Repeat on the right side; add a "U" shape to the bottom of Frankenstein's right jacket arm to form his right hand.
Step 20: Step 20
Draw a straight horizontal line from one jacket arm to the other to form Frankenstein's waist.
Step 21: Step 21
Draw two vertical rectangles, side by side under Frankenstein's waist line to form his legs.
Step 22: Step 22
Draw two horizontal rectangles to form his shoes. Color them in. :)
Step 23: Step 23
Give Frankenstein some stitches! Add a horizontal line with smaller vertical lines drawn through it. Repeat anywhere you want Frankenstein to have stitches!
