For my third lesson of the day, I will be submitting a tutorial that will show you "how to draw a simple cartoon", step by step. I wanted this cartoon character to look not only cool and unique, but I also wanted it to have personality and attitude. I tried creating a character concept to match the emo cartoon I drew yesterday, and I think I might have succeeded. My inspiration for this blonde headed kid was based on my eleven year old brother. I took his blonde colored hair, his clothing style, and just added attitude, and what you see in front of you now, is what you get. I think one of the most difficult aspects of this lesson is going to be drawing the hands. I tried making them chunky so that making the fingers wouldn’t be so tough. I know when I was just starting out at drawing, my biggest problem was learning how to draw hands, and it took me a long while to finally get it right. Over time I have drawn and uploaded many different types of cartoon characters that where created by me, and I think with each of them you can notice how I improved as an artist. Anyway, I think that is all I have to say, I mean it’s better if I shut up and just let you try and "draw a simple cartoon" so you too can learn to draw something new. Okay guys, I will be back soon with much more drawing fun. In the mean time enjoy your artistic drawing day!
