Using a graphic tablet!

Here is my simple recipe for drawing a cartoon character!

First, I use my graphic tablet and manga studio to do a simple basic sketch of what I have in mind. If necessary, I will use documentation to get proportions right.

Then, I try to find the right posture for my character. Once again, looking at myself in the mirror (if I'm alone!) is a great way to help draw a better character.

Then, I'll try to nail it down and draw the best, cleanest outline possible. This is the hardest part.

If necessary, I try to add colors. Choosing the right ones can also be difficult at times.

Et voila! What's your techniques when drawing cartoons?
