  5. Under the circle drawn to create minion’s head, draw a big shape similar to alphabet U. See that the ends of the horizontal line drawn in step two touches the ends of the U shape. The end of the vertical line drawn in step two will also be touching the middle of the U shape.
  6. Draw out double lines in curve shape on both the sides of the big U shape to draw arms of minions. The left side curved lines should be pointing towards head. Draw the curved lines at the other side in a dropping down position.
