Do you want to learn how to draw Perry the Platypus (Agent P) from Phineas and Ferb? My kids have a favorite cartoon on Disney and that is Phineas and Ferb. I have to admit that I love it too. My husband and I just crack up every time we see this show and my 2 year old baby daughter knows the words to the song already. I have put together a step-by-step tutorial that will help you figure out how to draw Perry the Platypus (Agent P) by using simple shapes to build up Perry the Platypus’ form. This is an intermediate cartooning tutorial that older kids, teens, and adults will enjoy. Even some younger children might be able to draw Perry the Platypus if you stand by to help with the instructions. Enjoy! Also find out
How to Draw Perry the Platypus (Agent P) from Phineas and Ferb for Kids : Step by Step Drawing Lesson
If you look at the sketched image above, you are probably wondering why I am teaching how to draw Perry the Platypus when I’m such an awful artist. 🙂 I purposely sketched out the basic shapes that I see in Perry the Platypus’ body shape. Did you ever notice that Perry the Platypus has a rectangle shaped body? Have you noticed that his tail is also very rectangular-shaped? Sketching out the basic shapes (lightly) before drawing the more specific shape of Perry the Platypus, is an easy way to get a better final drawing.
I am going to keep the basic-shaped-gray sketch out so you can see the basic shape of Perry the Platypus still. Now we can hone down the more ‘accurate’ shape of Perry the Platypus’ body. Also draw Perry’s eyes. Both of Perry’s eyes are oval, however the left eye’s lid hides part of the oval-shape of the eye. Don’t worry about mistakes because you can erase these later. Later, you will be using a pen or marker to outline the ‘right’ lines.
Now we can draw Perry the Platypus’ iris’. Below you will see a larger, close-up picture.
As you can see, you need to draw two small circles for Perry the Platypus’ eyes.
Now lets draw Perry the Platypus’ beak (is this what you call it)? Below you can see a larger / close-up picture of this.
Ahhh, now this should be easier to see. Draw Perry’s beak by drawing a backwards ‘C’ wtih a line at the top…or draw an upside down ‘P’.
Now draw the outside of Perry the Platypus’ mouth / beak area. As you can see, it basically can be drawn a a ‘C’ with a line pointing up and to the right at the top of the ‘C’.
Now lets draw Perry’s right arm and hand. The arm is the same or basically the same as the gray outline we drew first. The circle represents the shape of the hand, but with the fingers drawn in. It isn’t very hard if you notice that the fingers are basically the shape of long-shaped ‘U’s. You can do it.
