This lesson will give you tips on how to draw a cartoon doctor. Very often, doctors are depicted in cartoons with mirror reflectors on the forehead, a stethoscope around the neck and a suitcase in one hand.
For this particular lesson, we will do things a little differently! I invite you to learn how to draw a doctor wearing a scrub suit and holding a syringe in one hand!
Start your drawing lesson by sketching a circle to form the head. Add two small circles on each side to illustrate the ears. When you have completed this step, add two more circles to create the eyes of your doctor. Finally, draw a rectangle to represent the little hat.
Next, start creating the body by drawing a medium rectangle. For the left arm of your character (the one located on your right), simply sketch a long and thin rectangle with a small circle on the end to illustrate the hand.
For the right arm, sketch it using two rectangles since the arm is bent towards the sky. You can also add a circle to form the hand.
For the lower part of the body, draw a long and thin rectangle to represent the legs. For the feet, just sketch a small rectangle for now.
Add some details to your artwork like the syringe (seen on the right arm of your character), a mask (near the neck), a bottle in the left hand and a couple of lines to illustrate the hat's little ropes.
Do some refining on your character's head. Add a nose and a mouth. You can also join the ears with the head.
Work on the outline of the body and add some details to the mask, the syringe and the bottle. You can draw a line on the stomach of your doctor to represent the opening of the suit.
Complete your illustration by refining the legs and the feet of your character.
Just color the whole suit (including the hat) in green and the shoes in brown to finish your drawing. For the mask, a light blue will be OK. You now have a funny and smiling cartoon doctor ready to move on to the operation room to start a long and painless surgery!
I hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial (and the different angle I offered you) and don't hesitate to start over again to try to draw a more conventional doctor! Thanks a lot and have fun!
