Cartoons are really fun, and easy to draw too. Drawing cartoons like this shouldn't be frustrating, and doesn't require hours of erasing and shading. It's very basic, yet very satisfying, and only requires some markers, and some paper! You can really draw just about anything with this method, and it will still look pretty cartoon-like, but I'm going to show how to draw a person. There are a lot of steps, but this shouldn't take you long!

Step 1: What you Need

Basic Materials for "cartooning":
- Pencil
- Paper
- Hands and Fingers

Optional Materials:
- Colored Pencils or Markers


Step 2: The Chin

Start out with a simple half circle like the one in the picture.

Step 3: The Hair

Imagine or lightly draw with a pencil the rest of the circle. Now, darker, draw bangs for your cartoon that don't cover all of the face, so preferably short bangs. Bangs are optional, but they make the cartoon more realistic. When you know where your bangs will be, draw the rest of the head except for the part the bangs will be. If you are afraid to mess up, lightly draw the rest of the head in pencil. Give the bangs shape by not drawing just a straight line, but more of a curvy one. Then, draw the outline of the main hair behind it. I chose to have it long, but you can make it short by having small upwards spikes on the top of your bangs. Before coloring it, draw the neck from the bottom of the chin, basically just to curved lines ending in a loop. Now, color in the hair with the color of your choice, and add shine by drawing bubbles, and avoiding them while coloring, or coloring them in with a lighter color.

WOW usually I am REALLY bad at drawing cartoon people (especially the necks) but this is a simple and easy way so now I am quite good at it (I hope)
