Tips for Easy Cartoons Drawing

  • You should always start with the basic shapes. Every character and landscape can be drawn with basic shapes. With progress, you can move to detailed drawings.
  • Use guidelines for drawing. Guidelines are vertical or horizontal lines in a grid, which keeps drawing in portions easy. Make a rough drawing on a grid, then do it without a grid to perfect it.
  • Get inspiration from other artists. Take a look at their work as a cartoonist. Everybody has his own style. Look for cartoon drawings with different styles and see whats style catches your eyes. Then adapt that style.
  • Squash and stretch parts of the cartoon bodies to fill emotions in them. For example, if you want to show a laughing face, stretch its lips and facial expressions.
  • It is totally fine to use some reference materials. If you want to draw a tweety, find a tweety drawing on the web and try to draw it likely. Once you are comfortable drawing a cartoon with some reference, do it yourself and see if you’ve learned.
  • Always try to push your limits by trying different ideas.
  • Especially cartoons require a clean drawing. Avoid smudging.
  • Watch animated cartoons that you want to draw. It will help you memorize more details.
  • Give a specific emotion to your cartoon character.
  • Try to think out of the box. Don’t try to draw precisely how you find a character. Add more details according to your imagination later.
  • Learning to draw takes time. Don’t try to rush things and get frustrated.
  • Try different drawing tools that will help you generate new ideas and make productive changes.
