Introduction: How to Get a Chuckle Out of a Brit
It's been a while since The Bot Side (c) Instructables Robot cartoons have been posted so I thought it might be fun just to show you how they are drawn. Old School freehand with pencil and a marker to ink it in. Some say skillz but I say you just have to poke your funny bone.
Please note this was just a rough sketch drawn really really fast and sped up really really fast in movie maker - I had to download a really fast speeder upper plugin - to get this finished. You will see that I forgot some details on Kiteman and the Robot that I added in later.
Sketching with pen or marker is twice the fun because you cannot erase lines, only adjust them. There were only upright crosshairs or guidelines drawn in with pencil for general placement of the characters. If you want to learn how to draw or cartoon, you break down the figure into its component basic shapes(cubes, blocks, spheres, pyramids) and sketch over it.
Think about what you want to draw and then draw. It's that easy, ok, I won't spam my easy button.
So let's continue our more than 200 year old debate with our friends across the pond, this is humor, dedicated to our scholarly scholar "Wat r u a techer?" Kiteman.
