How to Draw Detail on a Cartoon Character
On behalf or TVLesson.com, my name is Paul Louis. I’m a puppeteer, artist and actor with PuppetNetwork.com. I’d like to give you some more details. So remember his mouth that was closed before. Well I think I’d like him to smile a little more. So I’m going to put a "U" underneath. The "U" that was used for the smile and inside that smile I’m going to put an upside down "U" like this.
And then what I’ll also do is I’ll color in the inside with the black magic marker so that it gives the appearance that that is in fact the inside of his mouth. And I’m going to fixed that a little bit here. How about some more detail?
All right I’d like to accentuate the size a little more so I’m going to start putting in a bunch of lines like this. Almost giving him an ear and a brow and I think he needs hair. So how about again, we make a series of "U’s". Maybe just kind of going like that, and then the same thing on this side.
So that he has hair on this side of his head and maybe we put some little sprouts of hair on top and we could do that just by putting three little lines like that and let’s take the hair on the side of his head and let’s start drawing him some squiggly lines like that to give the little bit of curly texture.
It most looks like Larry from the Three Stooges, doesn’t he? I’m warning you Moe, that’s my Larry impression. All right and we have a pretty cute character right there.
