How to Draw Goofy – Let’s get Started!
For this first step of our guide on how to draw Goofy, we will be starting with some facial details.
Using two rounded lines connecting to one another, you can draw his two eyes that have no line in the center of them. You can then draw two small oval shapes for his pupils.
The base of his eyes will have another curved line beneath them, and then you can add another horizontal oval for his nose.
Beneath his nose, you can then draw two more rounded lines for the two sections of his muzzle. Don’t forget to draw some squared teeth poking from under it!
Then, when you have drawn these parts you’re ready to move on!
Step 2 – Draw his hat in this step
Goofy is rarely seen without his signature hat, so this Goofy drawing definitely wouldn’t be complete without it! You can start this section by drawing two lines above his eyes.
Then, using some more curved lines you can then draw his hat drooping over to the side. He will also have some hairs poking out from the base of his hat, as shown in the reference image.
You can also fill his nose in with some black, leaving a small white oval for the shine on his nose.
We will be adding some more to Goofy’s smiling mouth in this step of our guide on how to draw Goofy. To do this, you can draw an outline for the bottom section of his mouth.
You can then put another outline around that, and then draw his round tongue inside of his mouth. Finish off this step by then drawing some more outlines around his eyes for the sides of his face.
Step 4 – Now draw his hand and his ears
We have Goofy in a rather relaxed pose for this Goofy drawing, so in this step we will have his face resting on his hand.
Much like the other classic Disney characters, Goofy wears a big white glove. You can use some curved lines for his hand and fingers, as shown in the reference image.
Then, we will be drawing another iconic aspect of Goofy, and that is his thin, floppy ears.
You can draw some long, thin shapes dropping down from the sides of his head to do this, and you could change up the positioning of them if you wish. That’s all for now, so let’s move on!
Step 5 – Draw his arms and shoulders in this step
Now you’re ready to start drawing his arms and shoulders in this step of our guide on how to draw Goofy.
You can use some curved and rounded lines to create the sleeves of the sweater that he is wearing, and our reference image will show you how to position his arms.
The arm on the left will connect to the hand underneath his face, whereas the one on the right shall be resting on the table. You can also draw his suspenders dropping down from his shoulders in this step.
Then you’re ready to add the final details in the next step!
Step 6 – Now, add some final details for Goofy
We will be finishing off your Goofy drawing in this step, and that will leave you ready to add some colors in the final part.
The main aspect we have left to add will be his second hand, and this one will be resting on the table as well. Like the other hand, this one will be gloved, and so you can draw it in a very similar style to the first one.
Before you proceed to the final step, you could also add some background details or additional elements!
It could be fun to draw his pals Mickey and Donald beside him, or you could show what kind of setting Goofy is hanging out in. what will you do to finish off this drawing?
Step 7 – Finish off your Goofy drawing with some color
The final part of our guide on how to draw Goofy will be about finishing off with some colors. In our reference image, we went with the classic color scheme for Goofy’s clothing.
That means some bright orange for his sweater along with green and black for his floppy hat.
You could use the reference image as your guide if you would like to replicate these colors, but you should also feel free to use any of your own color choices!
