“Don’t Have A Cow, Man” – One of Bart’s famous quotes from The Simpsons. We love this character and thought it would be a lot of fun to try and draw him.

Our step by step tutorial to draw Bart Simpson is a little longer than others but that is because we thought it would be easier to keep each step, really simple. So don’t feel overwhelmed with all the steps on this character. It isn’t nearly as hard as it seems.

If you follow our lesson, you should be able to pull off a pretty good-looking Bart Simpson drawing.
