Drawing cartoons is actually more difficult than expected. Whether you’re trying to cartoon a person, an animal, an inanimate object, or even a house, you’re in for a little trouble if you’ve never drawn a cartoon before. While most people underestimate the medium of cartoon and create it relatively easily, the fact is that caricature is a complex art form.
When drawing cartoons, you need to be able to use shapes. As simple as it may sound, there is a difference between knowing what a form is and what to do with it. Most amateur cartoons use simple line shapes and structures to convey relatively simple images.
It’s also important to know the angle you want to paint. You can paint all the frontals or make a three-quarter corner or any corner you want to use. The more complex the focal angle of the image, the more difficult it is to draw.
For this reason, if you want to do something that doesn’t have an immediate view of what you’re painting, you need to be very clear about how the different shapes look from different angles to get a good result.
Exaggeration is also a big part of the cartoon. The whole point of drawing cartoons is to take something realistic and make it bigger than life. We can do this through outlines, soft edges, or just some aspect of what you’re painting to make it bigger.
For example, when you paint a cartoon house, you will want rounded edges instead of hard edges to make it look friendlier. You may also want to keep the details to a minimum to make it look more cartoonish than real.
Even when drawing a cartoon house, all details related to the house must be certified. The focus should be on the home, not the environment. When you love animation, paying attention to the background is important, and regular cartoons are no big deal.
