How to Draw Cartoon Limbs
On behalf or TVLesson.com my name is Paul Louis. I’m a puppeteer, artist and actor with PuppetNetwork.com. Let’s start to give to give them some more detail where you’re going to give me some shoes. Again let’s make a letter “C”, how about that instead of "U" on its side, we’ll actually just call it the letter "C".
Now let’s do a "C" on the opposite side but "C" a backward "C". Now how about those two "C’s” kind of meet each other and connect like that. And remember that “I” I want you to bring it further down. Now, do you know how to make the number 8? I think you do. How about you make the number 8 right over here and then you make the number 8 right over here followed by a bunch of little “V’s”. Look at that.
Now, we can make arms in one of two ways. We can make them with straight lines or we could put curves to them. I like my characters to be a little bit curvy. So I’m going to take a curve line, bring it down like this and then swoop another curve line like this. Bring it down here and then another curve line going back up and touching our big "U". You can do the same thing here except when I curve it, I’m going to really curve it some more, bring it up, straight line across, bring it down and curve it.
Let’s make some hands for the character. Hands are always the trickiest part even for me. But again if you stick with them in terms of letters, like again an upside down "U" and another upside down "U", and another upside down "U" and another upside down "U", you then got a hand. And we could do the same thing over here. Upside down "U", "U","U", "U".
