Start with a piece of paper as tall as it is wide (or draw a faint box on your paper for reference). Then sketch your reference shapes: one circle for Ganesha’s torso, a smaller circle above it for his head, and two sausage-shapes beneath the big circle for his crossed legs.

You’re past all the hard parts, just finish strong with these coattails.
While these are the standard objects Ganesha is usually seen with, some versions show him holding items such as a goad, pasha (or noose), his broken tusk, and even a human head.

Personification of the Infinite Consciousness. Lord of Hosts. Master of the Universe. These are just three of the hundred-odd titles of the Hindu god Ganesha. Luckily, drawing the Hindu deity Ganesha isn’t so complicated.

Add Ganesha’s last three hands. One is opened with the palm facing you, a sign of blessing the people. Another hand holds a lotus flower, which is the symbol of enlightenment and supreme reality. The lotus is also the national flower of India.
The patron god of art and wisdom, Ganesha is known in the Hindu pantheon for removing obstacles and clearing a path to a better life, and he is also known by the names Binayak, Ganapati, Vinayaka, and even just Ganesh.
Add Ganesha’s face, trunk, and ears with bold, clean lines. Use the torso’s reference circle as a guide for where the trunk and ears should end.

Add detail to Ganesha’s crown and ears. The smaller items are always easier to draw than the larger items since you have less open space to overwhelm you.

Adorn Ganesha with the details that will elevate your work beyond a simple line drawing.
It’s time to make the sitting god the sitting god. Don’t panic, that extra detail by his trunk on the right is a hand — Ganesha is often depicted with more than two arms. This first hand seen here is holding a round object, most likely a round of sweetmeats. Ganesha is known for his fondness of sweet foods.

The last hand holds a hatchet, or ax, which you can see in more clearly in the next step. The ax represents all the good and bad getting cut away when enlightened.
