    How to Draw a Cartoon Boy in FourSimple Steps

    A cartoon boy drawing doesn't have to be hard, even for people who are not

    extremely artistic. In a few simple steps, you can be on your way to

    illustrating your own comic book about this mischievous cartoon boy. Grab

    your pencil and eraser, and let's get to it!

    Step 1 - The Base

    For the head, start with a curved line on the top. From the top left corner,

    curve a line down toward the center of the face area. Do the same thing on the

    right side. Make a tiny 'U' shaped bump between the two sides of the face to

    create the chin.

    The body will basically be an upside down cone, with the top cut off at the

    neckline and the bottom of the cone curved slightly and uneven. Below that,

    draw what appears to be a skirt - we'll address how to make it look cooler for

    this cartoon in the next step.

    Step 2 - Clothes, Face and Legs

    The two legs are going to resemble peg legs that a pirate would have, both

    shorter than the skirt we just drew and pretty thin, unless you are drawing a

    fat cartoon boy!

    Next, we'll address the skirt shape. Draw a line straight up the middle about

    3/4 of the way, and add a miniature 'T' top to it. At the bottom of the line,

    make a small, narrow upside down 'V' and erase the pencil line connecting

    the two legs of a pair of shorts between the points.

    On the body, draw an arc to create the neck and collar line. Sleeves will be

    similar in shape to the body, only smaller and angled out at about 30

    degrees, but still touching the body. Erase the pencil lines from the top of

    the body cone about 1/3 the way down to connect the sleeves.

    For eyes, draw two small circles set wide apart halfway down the sides of

    the face and add thick eyebrows at odd angles for personality. The nose is a

    small arc in the center of the face, on top of a banana-shaped mouth.

    Step 3 - Arms and Shoes

    Start with two very short lines coming out of the sleeves, at the

    same angle, only skinnier. Then, reverse the angle and draw two

    more lines in toward the top of the shorts, getting narrower as you


    Drawing shoes for your cartoon boy aren't difficult - the right foot

    is facing forward and is little more than a blob resembling a

    rectangle, while the left foot faces out as a long rectangle with an

    arc dipping across the top. Two rectangles - one long and one wide.

    Don't forget to create The cargo pocket for your cartoon boy's

    pants. This again uses rectangles as the base with a circle for the

    button, and a line down the middle for a little extra detail. He's

    starting to look cool - let's wrap this up in the next step.

    Step 4 - Finishing Touches

    To make the ears use a 'C' shapes on both sides of the cartoonboy head.

    Start the hair by creating a line of waves from left to right. The

    biggest wave should be on the left getting smaller and smaller to

    the right. Then, curve two lines up from the ears - to meet the

    wave line you just drew.

    Cut out pockets for the hands at slants on the sides of the shorts

    to add more flair.

    Step 3 - Drawing the Right Side

    Now that one side is finished, the other is a little easier. Your cartoon woman

    will have part of her right leg hidden by the left. That means that the oval and

    the bell creating the right side of your woman will point straight down and

    overlap the left side.

    The foot will be almost exactly the same shape, drawn just above the left foot

    with the bottom of it touching the top of the first. The right arm will also use

    the same shapes. This time, the top oval will follow the line of the bell of the

    body, and the bottom oval will angle out a little. Your cartoon woman's right

    hand should be almost identical to the left.

    Step 4 - Details

    This is the fun part. Your cartoon woman first needs a face and hair. Follow

    the line around the top of the egg head, just a little outside of it, and stop

    about halfway down each side of the egg to make the top of the hair. Use a

    zigzag from left to right to create bangs, and then a large "V" shape to create

    a part, rounding back down to the right side of the top hair line.

    The eyes are two small circles with straight lines above them for eyebrows.

    The nose is a standard sideways "V". The mouth is banana shaped just above

    the chin. Your cartoon woman also needs breasts, made by adding two "C"

    shapes, one to the side of the bell body and one matching one just inside.

    On the feet, you can draw a line to create a high heel and two curves at the

    top to create shoes. Hands get fingers with a couple of simple lines drawn up

    from the bottom of your rounded triangles.

    Step 5 - Accessories

    If your cartoon woman has long hair, you can add pigtails with "S" shaped

    lines connecting to the sides of the head. Hands can carry shopping

    bags, easily created from boxes with rounded handles that fit into her


    You can color your cartoon woman as you like, getting creative with hair

    color and clothing. Just be sure to erase all the overlapping pencil lines

    Step by Step CuteCartoon Girl Drawing

    Let's make a cartoon girl that's both cute and friendly just like the image to the right. As usual

    remember to draw lightly so you can erase your mistakes and guide lines easily when you arefinishing up your drawing.

    Step 1 - Basic Shapes for Head and Body

    Create an egg shape for the head. This isn't your standard egg however - this

    is more of a cartoon egg. It's quite thick at the bottom and very thin and

    narrow at the top.

    Next, draw a rectangle for the body. This rectangle, like the egg shape,should be thicker at the bottom than at the top. We'll use this to create the

    body of the cartoon girl and her dress.

    Step 2 - The Head

    Whoa! It looks like a lot happened between step 1 and step 2, let's examine

    what you need to draw.

    Draw a "U" shape that connects the head and that also cuts into the dress -this will make the neck. You'll also notice that the sides of the dress are a little

    more curved than the original rectangle. The dress should curve outward as it

    gets to the bottom.

    Add in Lines for the Arms and legs. If you look closely you can see a little

    bump on the knee and on the elbow. You don't have to add these details, but

    I think your cartoon girl drawing will look a little better if you do. Don't worry

    about the hands and feet for now, just worry about getting arms and legs that

    are about as long as the ones in the step 2 image.

    Step 3 - The Face, Ears, Hands and Feet

    Add in a big smile to your cartoon girl - she's happy! Add another line on the

    top of the mouth shape for the upper teeth.

    TIP: When someone smiles you can usually see the upper teeth.

    Draw two circles for the eyes, and an upside down "U" for the nose. By

    keeping her face simple we'll make sure that she's as cute as a button!

    To finish the feet, I used a triangle shape for the cartoon girl's left foot, and

    another fatter triangle shape for her right foot. Let's keep it simple right? If

    you wanted to at this point you could add some shoes to her, but for my

    drawing she is going to be left bare-foot.

    Her hands are also simple shapes. An easy way to do this is to draw a circle for the main part of the

    hand, and then draw little spikes coming off of it for the fingers. At the very tip of the finger it's

    important to remember to make it a little rounded so that your fingers are too pointy.

    Step 4 - Hair, and Final details

    To start create a scrunchie to hold her hair. This is just two little upside

    down "u" shapes at the top of her egg head. Next create the shape for

    the hair. It's bushy and thick right where it comes out from the scrunchie,

    and then goes into a point at the end. You should also add in some lines

    to indicate the shading of the hair. This should be drawn on the underside of

    the pony-tail.

    Next you should add some hair that goes across her face. Create

    sweeping curve lines that go from the top of her head to just above her

    ears. You will see that the bigger of the two hair parts has some

    additional lines. These help make the hair more interesting and give a

    subtle effect of the hair strands.

    What's the last detail? It's the ears of course! Use a "C" shape for her

    right ear, and the round part of a "D" shape for the other. Add in two little

    curved lines inside of these shapes to finish off the ears of this cartoon girl.

    How to Draw Cartoon Trees

    Cartoon trees aren't nearly as hard to draw as real trees. Once you stop worrying

    about all the little details and the shading and just focus on the basic form of the tree

    it's actually quite an easy shape to create. This is a basic drawing of a tree - if you can

    learn to make this kind of a tree, you can use it in any number of scenarios. It's very

    simple and easy to make. It is extremely easy to make so you can get your pencils out

    and get started!

    STEP-1: Making the Basic Shapes

    Make an oval with a vertical rectangle below it and not overlapping but just touching

    the base of
