Learn how to draw a dad and see why this drawing tutorial based on a simple cartoon character is so easy to achieve! So what makes a dad so special? Why not create a simple tutorial and call it "how to draw a man"? Well, a dad is more caring, designed with more cuteness and lightness. Just like the illustration below, you can see right away that this cartoon character is special and already the father of two cute kids!
A simple step to start: sketch a long oval shape to form the head of our cartoon dad. The bottom must be wider than the top.
Next, add some rectangles to create the body and the pants of the cartoon character. Both arms are also made from rectangles. Finally, draw two circles to represent both hands.
On top of the head, draw some hair using small curved lines. Ears are sketched using small circular shapes. Draw the feet like shown in the illustration below. Nice work! :)
Great! Both the eyes and the pupils are made from large circles. Drawing large circles is important to end up with a cute cartoon character. Draw more details on the shirt of the cartoon dad.
You can complete this tutorial by adding small oval shapes inside the pupils. The nose and the mouth are made from curved lines. A simple moustache can be added below the nose of the character.
Nice work once again! You can enjoy this simple version without any colors. As you can see, this design is simple and quite easy to achieved.
These are all steps you need to master in order to create the perfect cartoon dad. Simply study this lesson carefully and then work on your own version using simple shapes, lines and colors! :)
