Learn how to draw a funny doctor cartoon dressed in green and ready for surgery! Indeed, this cute cartoon character represents hope for most of us when times are more difficult. Working in a hospital is not an easy task since pressure is constant and mistake must be avoided at all cost!
Just grab your digital pencil, open your vector software and start creating a nice character using only the most basic tools like the gradient fill, the transparency tool and the drawing tools! Enjoy! :)
Important note: For each step available below, the first image represents the operation you must perform for this particular step. All changes are surrounded by a red outline.
On the second image, you will have the opportunity to see the result of this particular step.
Your first task is to reproduce this cute cartoon character using basic shapes and dark outlines. The character doesn't need to be 100% similar. Just make sure that all main features are present. Then, add some plain colors to the head, the body, the legs and the arms.
For this step, you need to use the gradient tool to create simple shadows. All shapes must be colored with this tool. Of course, you need to create each shape separately. Just make sure that the bottom of each shape is darker than the top.
Create a few circles to represent the reflections on the eyes, the pupils and around the eyes. You can use the transparency tool to hide the top part of each shape. You can use a skin tone color to create the shapes around the eyes.
Finally, add shapes on the head, the shirt and the shoes to create new shadows. Once again, the bottom of each shape must be darker and the top slightly transparent. As you can see, this tutorial wasn't too difficult if you already know how to use a vector software. Enjoy! :)
