Create a fun child clipart using this simple drawing tutorial featuring a basic character made from rectangles, circles and squares. Children are relatively easy to illustrate. All you need to do is create a head that is slightly larger than usual, draw tiny arms and feet and add vibrant colors to create the perfect kid.
In this case, the template is made from basic shapes and colors. If you can draw a basic rectangle, a small circle or draw curved lines, then you won't have trouble duplicating this illustration. Are you ready to work on a simple character like the one found above? Great! Let's proceed with step number one now! :)
Cool! Let's start with the creation of the head using a large square. When you are done, draw a small rectangle just below the head. Finally, another small rectangle can be added to illustrate the legs of the child. Complete this step by drawing both feet using small oval shapes.
In this second step, you can start by working on the hair using small triangles made from curved lines. Next, draw the ears using small circular shapes. When you are finished, you can sketch the arms using thin rectangles and the hands using circles. Excellent work! Believe it or not, we are almost done already! :)
In this step, start by adding the eyes using large circles. Then, create the pupils using smaller circles. The mouth is created from a simple curved line. A single hair can also be drawn on the forehead of the cartoon character. That's it for the drawing aspect of the character. It's now time to add colors inside the illustration. :)
A simple skin color can be used inside the head, the ears and the hands of the child clipart. The pupils are filled with a bright blue color while hair is simply brown. The shirt is filled with a green color and the pants are blue. The shoes are colored in brown. Great job! This cartoon character looks amazing! :)
Good job creating a fun cartoon child made from simple elements and filled with vibrant colors. Don't hesitate to try creating your own version using more accessories like a cap, a t-shirt, objects and more.
