Drawing cartoon babies: some fun facts before starting sketching!
Drawing babies is not so difficult if you already know how to draw a man. You just need to change your proportions a little bit! This cute kid has some hair on top of the head (1), nice and soft skin (2), big and firm legs (4) and a pacifier (5) to help mommy and daddy sleep! Don't forget the small nose, tiny ears and light eyebrows.
Our little baby is mostly made of circles. Notice how the head is almost as big as the body. The legs are much shorter than a man. But they are much bigger considering the height of the baby. The arms are also a little short. All details on the face are small and delicate.
In this example, let's try to draw a simple baby. First, draw a circle for the head. Then, sketch a triangle for the body. Next, add two circles to form the feet. You can now draw the details on the baby's face. Finally, you can add the hands and some colors to add more realism.
Drawing a cute baby is fun and easy for everyone. You can try something simple like we did above (1), go for a drawing a little more unconventional (2) or something with a little more style (4).
Don't hesitate to practice a lot and remember to change proportions to fit the baby's anatomy. A big head, short but strong legs and a pacifier... very important!
