How To Draw Forky Step By Step

Step 1: We’re going to start drawing Forky by sketching out his clay base. Start toward the bottom of your paper and draw a mound of clay with a few bumps on the bottom.

Step 2: Now we’re going to draw the spork. Start at one end of the clay mound and draw the skinny handle. Flare your line outward to make the spork tip and make 4 points at the top. Draw a mirror image of the one side, all the way down to the opposite side of the clay.

Step 3: We’re moving on to make Forky’s popsicle stick feet. Starting at one end of the clay mound, draw a thin, stretched out oval that ends at the clay base. Repeat for the other foot.

Step 4: This step is super simple! To draw Forky’s eyebrow, make a long, curved rainbow-like shape in the center of his spork head.

Step 5. Next, it’s time to make Forky’s eyes. Unlike many other characters, Forky actually has 2 different sized eyes. Start with the left eye and draw a large circle. Draw the inner pupil smaller and offset, with it moved closer to the right. Make Forky’s right eye about 1/2 as big as his left eye. Draw the inner pupil smaller as well and slightly to the left. This will give him his cute and silly look!

Step 6: We’re making Forky’s smile! Draw a classic open mouthed smile, with rounded edges. Next, make a smaller version of this smile inside the previous one.

Step 7: We’re getting close! Now you’ll be making Forky’s pipe cleaner arms. To make his arms start on one side and draw one arm at a time. Draw a thin, slightly bent arm with 3 fingers on each hand. Next draw the other arm. Connect the arms in the center of the spork handle.

Step 8: This is the last step of drawing! Don’t forget to draw on Forky’s rainbow sticker on his foot. Make a fat “U” shape.

Bonus step: Now it’s time to color Forky in! For Forky’s clay, use a soft brown or dark cream color. Color in his rainbow sticker and color his feet a yellowish brown. You can either leave his body white or color it an off white. Fill in his eyebrow and arms with a bright red. Make his smile a bright blue. Use a soft red to color on the blush of his cheeks on either side of his smile. Color in his pupils black.

Voila, you’ve done it!

You’ve created your very own Forky drawing.
