Dear Amy: What website can teach me how to draw cartoon characters? — Alexis, (no city), La.
Dear Alexis: Learning to draw can be fun, but it also requires patience and a lot of practice. The easiest cartoon tutorials start with basic shapes, add more details and then remove any extra markings. Grab some paper and a pencil and head to bluetadpolestudio.com/HowToDraw.html for easy step-by-step cartoon tutorials on how to draw animals, cars and more.
Another helpful site is expressivemonkey.com, where you can learn to draw people, animals, bugs, elves and even monsters. Be sure to try out the Birds drawing sheet, where you roll dice to mix and match different parts and draw your own Angry Birds-inspired creation.
Finally, check out the drawing lessons at drawingcoach.com/cartoon-drawing-lessons.html. If you need some scenery for your characters, learn how to draw a house, trees, clouds and more. After you’re comfortable with the tutorials, read How to Draw Cartoons in Your Own Style to learn how to give your drawings personal flair. Your cartoon style can be serious, silly or even a little bit of both — it’s up to you!
