Warning: BIG FILE. If you have the time (and patience) see how I draw Zim! Click here!

EDIT: LoL a lot of people have been saying that i seem to have drawn Zim's legs too long :XD: Alright you got me, i always draw his legs a bit long ;) If you want him really short just ignore how long i've drawn his legs and draw them shorter, kay? =D

You asked for it. So now you got it. :evillaugh:

...And you better like it! :shakefist: LoL

Wellz, this be a tutorial on how to draw Zim, and i'm very proud of it. :lol: It's one of the only tutorials here that actually 'draw' it out for you so you can see how i do the stokes and stuff. Hopefully it'll be useful to some people or at least entertaining. I sooo sososo had so much more stuff i wanted to add in, but i got lazy on the last part plus i didn't want the file size to get any bigger :hmm:

Um, there's only music on the intro part and like two wavs throughout the rest, so not that much sound. The music is part of a fan made IZ song that someone made (i think it's called Bass Kittens: Invader Zim Techno Remix or something like that) which i downloaded. =D
