How To: Draw A Cartoon Character

Watching cartoons was one of my favorite past times when I was younger.  Every weekend, we were allowed to wake up, have breakfast and then have our entire morning just for watching cartoons.  I started doodling at the age of 8 by drawing cartoon characters that I watched on TV. I think it is great way for people to develop their sketching skills. Sometimes we just need a guide to see which style is suitable and easy for us to do.

Do you want to learn how to sketch?  If your answer is yes, then you can start with your favorite cartoon character.  If you do not have a favorite character, then you can start out with two of my favorite characters, SpongeBob Square Pants and Garfield.  I chose them because they are simple characters that are quite easy to draw.  They are done with basic shapes that are connected to create a whole. So whip out your pen and paper and follow the instructions on these videos below.  Have fun!

SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series, created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg. Much of the series centers on the exploits and adventures of the title character and his various friends in the underwater city “Bikini Bottom.” The series’ popularity has prompted the release of a media franchise, contributing to its position as Nickelodeon’s highest rated show, the most distributed property of MTV Networks, and among Nicktoons’ most-watched shows.  While Garfield is a fictional character and the title protagonist from the comic strip Garfield created by Jim Davis.
