My kids love Phineas and Ferb (especially Perry the Platypus/Agent P). They’ve gotten really good at drawing Perry as a platypus, but when they tried to draw him as a secret agent they just couldn’t figure out what to do. We looked online for ‘How to Draw Agent P,’ but after we tried this “super easy” 4-page 20-step tutorial and ended up with knots of unerased lines, we decided we needed something easier.
This tutorial is probably not great for someone looking to make an exact, professional-looking art piece, but if your five year old just wants to draw an Agent P picture, this should help.
1. Start with a standing-up rectangle.
2. Add arms and legs.
3. Draw the hat and some sneaky secret-agent eyes.
4. Add Agent P’s beaver-tail and bill!
5. Erase any extra lines and draw the criss-crosses on his tail.
Not pictured here is step 6: color! The kids had much better results with this kind of ‘whole picture’ approach than sketching armatures. Hope you enjoyed it!
