How to draw cartoon people (and body parts)
How do you draw a person and achieve your goal of turning him into a superb drawing? Cartoon people have unique physical particularities that you need to understand and study.
If you don't know how to draw a simple hand or a nose, chances are you won't be able to know how to draw people that will look convincing to your readers.
Of course, you can always play with each body parts of your character if you wish. You prefer to draw someone with four fingers? Go ahead! You want to create a woman with long legs and small arms? Why not!
That's the beauty of being a cartoonist! You can do whatever you want! But to do so, you've got to understand and study each part of the body first.
Drawing a person is really simple once you know what they're made of. Take a look at all the examples below and study each of them carefully. Once you will feel more comfortable, play with those parts and start creating amazing cartoon characters!
