Learn how to draw a cute cartoon lumberjack using this easy step-by-step drawing tutorial. Indeed, I will show you how to create this adorable cartoon character from basic shapes, lines and colors. Once you are familiar with this lesson, draw more characters and animals from the same template should be relatively easy. Ready? Let's proceed with the first step of this cartoon tutorial. ;)
First, you can create the head and body of this lumberjack using a few basic curved lines. These lines are made from sharp ends and the body must be thinner than the head. We need some room to draw a facial expression that is appealing and easy to read.
Next, you can draw the arms and the legs of the cartoon character. Arms are made from short straight lines while the hands are created from curved ones. The legs are also made from short straight lines while the feet are slightly irregular.
On top of the head, draw a large hat using a long curved line. Ears are made from two short curved lines. You can also draw some hair on both sides of the head. Inside the hat, draw another long line near the bottom of the object.
Inside the hat, sketch two eyebrows using short curved lines. Inside the head, you can start by adding two large circular shapes to represent the eyes. Both pupils are made from smaller circles.
The nose is made from a long curved lines and the mouth is done using a small rectangle. You can also draw a few teeth using mostly a mix of simple short lines.
Below the nose and above the mouth, draw a long curved line to form the beard of the character. Next, draw a few patterns on the jacket of the character using long rectangles (or short lines, both techniques are good).
This cartoon lumberjack is mostly filled with red and brown colors. Notice how the beard and the hair are darker. The pattern on the jacket and the stripe on the bottom of the hat are also darker. Pants are blue and the teeth are created from thin gray lines.
Below you can see all six steps required to illustrate this cartoon lumberjack properly. Now that you are more familiar with the techniques used to draw this character, why not try to draw more fun people and animals from the same series?
Have fun sketching and don't forget to practice as often as possible. That's the best advice to become better at drawing. ;)
