How To Draw Patrick Star

Welcome back to Quickdraw, today you will learn to draw and colour in Patrick Star! This drawing idea is suitable for kids aged 4 and above. The YouTube video and pictures guide you on sketching Patrick Star with pencil, then marker pen and finally onto colouring him in. It's a simple, easy-to-follow, step by step guide. And a whole lot of fun to try at home or in art class at school. Let's start drawing!

Art materials needed:

A plain sketchpad to draw on, a sharp pencil to draw with, an eraser to rub out messy lines, a black marker pen to go over pencil lines, and a bunch of colouring pencils or felt tip pens to add a splash of colour!

  • Grab yourself a sharp pencil. We’ll start by drawing a circle. 

    It’s a bit weird right, Patrick star is not round, his body has five points - but wait, you’ll see! 

    Ok now from both sides of the circle, draw loopy lines upwards. This will be Patrick’s head. Instead of making a point right in the middle we’ll droop it over to the right. 

    Hmmm… almost like a Santa hat. 

  • Halfway down the circle, which by the way is Patrick’s belly, draw a line all the way across. Go down and back up to the other side. 

    Just above that line on the right, give Patrick Star an arm. Out and back in, rounded at the end. 

    Keeping your pencil at the same height, move it over to the left and draw the other arm. 


  • How about a nice, happy, shouty smile? 

    This will go around the top of the first circle we draw.

    Now for a pair of long eyes. No gap in between them. 

  • Just a quick nip and tuck on Patrick’s body, making him less plump around the waistline. 

    Back up to the eyes, and two short lines for each eyebrow. 

    Then a double curved line to mark out the belly button. 

    You can rub away those old pencil lines if you like, otherwise it becomes confusing to know which lines to go over with a black marker. 

    What’s missing? Patrick Star needs legs. 

    Two stumps for his bermuda shorts. And the legs shoot out of those like this. 

    One last dash with the eraser and we’re done boys and girls! 

  • Now where is that black marker? 

    Smoothly trace the outlines including Patrick Star’s eyes, mouth, arms, legs and shorts. 

    It’s so funny how he always looks happy and surprised. 

  • Ok, now this is another fun part. You will need three colouring pencils: pink for Patrick Star’s body and yellow and purple for his shorts. 

    We can leave the eyes white. And maybe even choose a red for his mouth, up to you! 

    So whilst we’re colouring him in, here are some fun facts for all you Spongebob Squarepants out there. 

    So, as many of you guys will know, Patrick Star is a starfish. These creatures can be found in many oceans around the world. 

    Star fish don’t have brains, so perhaps that is why Patrick can act so dumb on TV. 

    But that hasn’t stopped him from finding a job… Patrick Star has been a lemonade seller, inventor, king of Bikini Bottom, jellyfisher, door-to-door salesman (along with SpongeBob, when they sold chocolate bars), and a security guard. 

    Now that is an impressive set of skills! 

    Ok how is that colouring looking? Nice work, nearly done.
