Scientist Cartoon (Advance Vector Tutorial)

Learn how to draw a scientist cartoon using a few basic shapes and a vector application! This cool cartoon character should not be too difficult to draw. Of course, scientists are often depicted as a cartoonish version of what Albert Einstein looked like at the end of his life. This version of a scientist is also based on this concept.

Therefore, it should be quite easy to draw a funny character in a white suit with a grey moustache and a crazy haircut. You can also create a more polished and realistic version if you want to. Just use your imagination and have fun!

Important note: For each step available below, the first image represents the operation you must perform for this particular step. All changes are surrounded by a red outline.

On the second image, you will have the opportunity to see the result of this particular step. 

Step 1

First, create the outlines of the character. Once you are done, add plain colors to your illustration. Most of the drawing should be colored with dark tones of grey. Only the skin is colored with something more vivid!

Step 2

Select each shape individually and pick up the gradient tool to add shadows to your cartoon character. Remember that the darker areas are usually on the bottom of each shape. You can use a circular fill on the eyes.

Step 3

It's now time to create additional shadows on the shirt. Create new shapes that will be placed where shadows are needed. You can also add circles on the eyes and the pupils to illustrate reflection. You can use transparency on these new shapes to make sure that they blend properly with the shapes below.

Step 4

Finally, you can add a few larger shadows on the face, the shirt and the feet. Once again, you will need to create new shapes to create these new effects. Good job! Your scientist cartoon character is now completed! Enjoy! :)
