1. How to Draw Cartoon Faces: Hi. How's it going? I'm Enrique. And in this course we're gonna go over how to draw a cartoon faces. I don't know if you've ever been watching Nickelodeon, the Cartoon Network, and you really wanted to capture that look in drawing and how it's possible on. I'm gonna go over that. This is for beginners. It's one of the shorter courses I have, so it's gonna be pretty quick. Let's go over what's in this course right off the bat. I'm gonna go through the marker that we're gonna use. There is a specific mark I want to talk to you about. After that, I'm going to go through every feature and talk about how it's different from its real life feature. So in that video, gonna go through the eye and I'm gonna go through the cartoon I. After that, I'm gonna go through the nose and the cartoon goes, And then in the next video, I'm gonna go over the mouth and ears and kind of a heart version of about 10 years And how giving after that I go through to head shapes that I think are really valuable. And I used constantly when I'm drawing any sort of hard to face. And then finally, I'm gonna go through and do a few demonstrations for you, and then I'm gonna top it off of the very end with final thoughts video. So that's pretty much it. Let's get started on this course, and I hope see you in the next video. 2. Supplies for Cuteness: Hey, guys. All right, let's go into this supplies for this lesson. So just to recap, just kind of say what I'm about to say was, You don't really need these tools. You can use any kind of marker and you'd be completely fine. But I do recommend a marker. I will say that. Or thin, kind of like brush pen, either one of those I highly recommend. Use that for this. On the reason for that. I'll tell you the reason for that in a minute. So let's go over these two. Quick number one with a Sharpie Sharpie is available everywhere. Right before I have, like some in your house right now. The Sharpie is great, the sharpies really great for, because the fact that it is easy to kind of get, and it's also very inexpensive, extremely inexpensive tools. So this tool, it's there is a fall back to it. It has a really toxic smell. Sharpie does, so you would have to open up the windows, keep the fan on. Just don't have this marker in your face. Apparently, it's over time, right over the course of years. If you're inhaling the smell, it's not good for your brain. So that's kind of reputation. It has to be very, very careful. Uh, what? I highly recommend it. You get something like this. This is a favourite Castel P I t t artist pen. So this has Ah, see this, like a brush tip pen. Anything like this is awesome. Way also have this one here. The bigger brush. It's called big Brush. It's almost exact. Same name favorite Castel P I t t rt spending. But this one says a big brush on it. Either one of those will work or you can use anything else. So that's pretty much it you can use. Ah, Magic marker actually from figure. Have one of them. This one, this one from the Crayola sets. These will work as well. See, any time that's a that's a it's pretty decent marker. So the reason I want I want you to use that because of this, when you draw a line, you want to be able to achieve a thick to thin line, at least some variations. Yes, thinner there. It's thicker here. I think the thing you want line variation and I just don't see how you gonna get that with a 10. I mean, you could over or, you know, learn how to do with a pen, but we're learning how to do it with a brush pen or a marker. So that's why I recommend that tool for this were drawn, more animated stuff. So get anything like that and then you'll be great. Uh, then with paper, I'm using a regular 11 8.5 by 11 paper printing paper. And it's great because it comes in a gigantic stack for like, very inexpensive. And that will last you. Six months I remember. And after consistent drawing, it will last for six months. It comes in a huge, huge pack, very inexpensive, inexpensive. Or you can also get the tabloid size printing paper, which is 11 by 17. And that is enough. It's just kind of larger. That's the only difference, and that will last even longer. Uh, so that's what I recommend for paper. As far as practice and everything, and even to some finished drawings for markers, you kind of do it on that. I will say, when you do draw lines like that, be prepared that it might go through the next feat of paper. I guess it didn't it didn't go through on that one, but usually they go through. So I would recommend just kind of watching that, Uh and that's kind of it, Really. For tools, it's very simple to the point, so let's jump right in the first lesson. 3. Cartoon Eyes: okay, so really quick. Let's go over the parts of the eye and see what we can do to drawn animated I from regular I. If you don't know how to draw nigh ball, I recommend going to see my Eyes tutorial site program, and that program goes over the I really in depth, but it will give you a short kind of starter on how to draw the eye. So the key to drunk Cartoon I well is knowing how to draw re ally well, and that's what it is because of the usually cartoon I is pulling out information and indicating things that rely has so really quick with the re ally. If you're a drawing, it would have some sort of pattern, like there's usually a peak toward the inner top. Let's say this is the nose over here. Peek through the inner top right there. You're gonna have maybe the tear duct. You pull down the lower lid, it's gonna go to the edge here, and you're gonna have the iris and pupil. And then they have the upper laid right here, wraps around and you know, from that you might have some eyelashes or stuff like that. So that would be kind of the shape of a normal, completely normal I. What you want to do is you want to take those features and either exaggerate them or you want to take them out. So let's talk about exaggeration. Uh, I'm gonna draw the pupil and iris much larger than normal. A lot of cartoons tend tohave that look. So we're gonna and we're gonna pull up very similar to, like, a gravestone. We're gonna have a very kind graphs, the gravestone in shape. So, for example, I'm gonna take this same shape. Your from the tear duct pulling up Make the line of the thicker as well. That's what I'm using. Kind of side of this, you know, brush pan or marker. And that's gonna pulled down, like see that gravestone shape? Then what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna draw the pupil. It's gonna fill the I much more the iris and people. And the highlight isn't a giant enormous. You see that lot with Tweety Bird? You see that a lot with different cartoons. They make that the iris really huge. And part of that would be the graphic image of a cartoon because generally when you're drawing cartoon, it's four younger people like Children. I love cartoons, right? A lot of adults that I know love cartoons as well love animation. But when they're drawing certain features, think they're drawing them or graphically graphically meeting. They catch your eye much quicker and they can hold your attention much longer. And that's why you tend to appeal to, you know, younger like little kids and stuff like that. You draw very, very eye catching Images are very graphic where they might view stuff like a traditional I or a traditional drawing, is kind of boring looking. You want you drunk graphically here. And so I'm trying with thicker lines, and I normally do like an irregular drawing. The line right job isn't usually much thicker, throwing a little bit of right here using a lot of side of my marker. And then right here, let's go to the top for the upper lid and that that already has a very, very different look than this. You're exaggerating that pretty much every way. You're making a different shape. It looks more round on, has a kind of more slightly cute look, but you know it's animation, Look or and there's different animation eyes as well. So let's go over here and do that again. Let's say just that Graystone shape and this is where you're pulling out most. The information. We just draw a line at the bottom of that same iris, and people shape the highlight. Let's let's fill this one in right. And then you could even draw like the lid over here are an indication of a lid. See, that is the same as this, and the same is that. But it's taking certain things out. I took the tear duct of a normal eye out. I took that out and I took a lot of, like, little overlapping shapes. Here. It's just this one overlapping shape of where it touches the lower lead. And then that Graystone shape. And right here you have, like only part of the island, and you can get crazier with to you, crazier by drawing like an eyeball with like you get more simplified like really cartoony. As things maybe like peanuts, you draw like a dot maybe the highlight in there and then just like a bit of an eyebrow or , you know, so Or you can draw that and you could draw a little line coming off it. Maybe, like it's like a tear doctor something. I think it may be something like Snoopy or Calvin and Hobbes if you guys haven't read that comic strip. But that would be with the I generally is in terms of like animation when you're drawing it more for cartoonish effect. It's simpler. More graphic usually use a thicker line. The line is two different right here cause I'm using the same tool. But I am drawing. It is thicker, you know, than that this is my normal I right here and even that could be considered. Ah, cartoon I Based on what I'm using on, then this is it s'more more simplified and cartoony as you go along. So that would be the eye ous faras. The other things of the ivy expression. I'll go over a couple of just a couple of expressions with you. Not many. I don't want to mix you up, but if you go over here, usually the, uh, just pull this out as well. Expression usually is like surprise right, which is almost essentially an egg shaped and what? The good thing about a surprise is, you know, the people on island Normally, surprises indicated from, uh, the top laid right here, not touching the people on Iris. So it's like down right here and then in the upper lid on top in the lower leg here. And so that's gonna lend more to shock when the why it's more wide. See how you can see the entire entire shape, uh, or looking to the wide open I But you have the sheep right in the center. People in Iris rent a center that looks even more afraid as well saves, you can tell. So that be the shock. If you want to have this on more squinting right here, more of a squinting shape, which would be if you sly or devious, you could make it smaller, like like our normal I but a little bit different. Discuss squinting like Oh, no. So I'm gonna happen and it wants things scrunched up. There's a little bit more kind of folding along the sides and sly, was he happy? This could also be happy as well. Uh, this could be perceived as happy as well, because the cheek is pushing up a little bit. Uh, you know, when you smile, your cheeks tend to go up on. Then there's also sad. I think that's the biggest one. Let's go over here as you're gonna make that same tombstone shape. I always had a tombstone shape right here. I'm going to put kind of another line right here, and that's gonna kind of show that the brow furrowing a little bit. And you get this kind of they're sad or angry for that. Could be more angry. Could be sad in some context. But let's try. So I'm gonna put that is angry. Let's put more. Let's do sad Saddle would be where there's a dipping on the other portion. Think of like droopy from tens. You know, that's kind of more so thinking like the nose being over here, certainly drawing one I at a time, I think of like the nose being on this side. That's more like sad. It's kind of dipping in from the outside from the outside of the head down, as opposed to here. This is more angry. Forgive me, Um, and that's kind of it. I believe as far as you can make up variations of these expressions, but I didn't even really have to go for expression. I just thought it was a good idea to kind of go over them when referring to the eye. That's pretty much it. A za primer for the eyeball. But that is usually what I do. These are the kinds of cartoon eyes that I draw. Let's move on to the next one. We're gonna move on to the nose, and then after that, the mouth and years. 4. Cartoon Nose: Okay, so let's go for the nose and the mask over the nose. So the regular knows again. Like I said in last lesson, drawing a feature more realistically is the key to drawing its cartoonish because you're taking out information. Usually when you draw it is a kind of cartoon, Um, but I'll go over really quick one more time. I recommend going to the how to draw knows, of course, that will teach you in depth about the nose. But what I could do now is give you a primer. So generally the nose is made up of a couple of things it's made up of. Let's just say it's facing the left. It's made up of cartilage and bone. So right here, this portion of right here is the bone, and this kind of half of it is the cartilage and cartilage is much more malleable than bone . That's why you have all these strange shapes to noses. You know that someone come up high, some hang low, but that's why you have this part, which is cartilage. Generally, the nose shape has the ball of the nose, which is at the edge, which is the cartilage has the wing of the nostrils and has the bridge, which is literally that that kind of little long, narrow part of the nose that comes up into the eyes when I hear okay, that's generally the parts of the nose. So that's even cartooning right there. Let's go over a kind of a cartoon ified version of that, and I'll talk you through it. So if I was during the nose inside view again, I'm using thick to thin lines pulling in here. It's the nostril, the nostrils, a little bit of thicker line, and then the wing of the nostril, which is the outer part. The nostril can be like the letter C. Essentially, you have more of a court. Unified knows the news knows is much easier than the mouth. I think then, the I do think that the mouth of the I think knows is much easier. Uh, and you can simplify that as well. If you see cartoons like peanuts, all they do for the nose is literally the letter C. It's like a nub, right? It's like a little nub. Um, that's all you need is very simple. It's really just dealing with the nose itself, right? The tip that the ball, the nose, the bridge and the nostril. So those three ball the nose right. Here's the ball bridge radio, which is essentially the kind of bony portion and the wing of the nostril Botham. And you can simplify that down to literally enough. And I've seen that over and over and over again. But you want more creative. You can play with those shapes. So let's just have a big ball of the knows where the ball is the end of the nose. So let's just say the end of the nose is real big, and then you have, like, a tiny nostril here. Think of something like Elmer Fudd. Um, you know, I can't think of a character offhand, but there are a lot of characters that do that. You have a big ball of the nose or here, and no bridge, no bridge of the nostril. No eso. You can make many, many, many, many variations. Let's go toe, which knows type thing where the nose is hanging downward, where the ball the nose is literally just step here and then you pull line down essentially where their nose is aiming straight down. Ah, you put like a tiny nose, has a little like Betty Boop knows, or even anime knows which has against Leslie is turning to the left. An enemy knows has more pointy, kind of, uh, almost like a check mark. Animate noses can even be this. Some of this is a Pokemon. You can do something like that. And again, that's a great example. When you look at animate, that is a simplified version of A knows it is a simplified indicated version, meaning you're just put the little check mark. You put this little see right in a comic strip, and all of a sudden the viewer knows what a nose looks like, and they fill that in their imagination, fills in the rest. You don't even need to say more, right? You don't need to put more on the paper. You know your stuff, like Santa Claus. The same thing, just like a big you know, even you need to put the wing of the nostrils through a big circle there. If you look at cartoons, maybe like Captain Crunch, it's literally a ball. Sometimes for the nose, you draw like a mustache or year, and then you have eyes behind that. But the nose is extremely simple. I consider that the easiest feature that you can draw in cartoon form I would or even think of. Ah, there's another one Luigi from Mario Brothers even put a little angle at the end of it. You can go up right here. Slight angle and you pulled down so that you can play around with these all day. And what you can do is you can literally find your style of animated knows, Uh and that will kind of help you learn more and more of what you need. Drum mustache there. See? No, I'm talking about and then you have the eyeball over here, like whole right. We'll go over the whole face in a couple of videos here. 5. Cartoon Mouth / Ear: All right, so let's go into the mouth on. I'm gonna have to do the here in this one, too, because the year I want to give it its entire video. So let's go with the mouth real quick. The mouth is very simple. So again, if you don't know how to draw lips, go to my how to draw lips program and that will tell you everything you need the mouth so you can draw without really knowing that much of it. Kind of so generally lips and I'm gonna over realistic lips are broken up into small shapes . Your average lips kind of geometrically have this shape to them. From the front. You have to fat pads down here. You have a little bit of a cleft with top of the mouth here and flat across the of the lips . But you can simplify that down. Right? So if you look at things like Betty Boop, let's go over that first Betty Boop as those exact features, but kind of, uh, again, cartoon ified. Uh, so this is a simplified form of lips. You have this for female? Generally, female time looked like fuck re lips. Uh, and an easy part about the lips and mouth is that you could literally make it a line. You know, I've seen stuff like Simpson's right. You have a straight line across. They have a baby, they have an overbite. You have something like, for example, when you have like, let's say, the chin somewhere, like the chin shape and Batman, you would literally have, like, a straight line here, right? This this shape for the mouth it could It could be so easy for the mouth. Or you gonna have regular just very typical smiling, shaped like a smiley face. But one thing about go over is kind of expressions of the mouth, whether the cartoon you're not when somebody is gritting their teeth, Usually there's a kind of a around his shape, like like that, and then you have the teeth inside of it. You don't have to draw the actual you could indicate the teeth, but you don't have to sew their mouth will pull back meeting as a lips open up here, it'll push against the skin on the outer portion of the mouth and a kind of a grating motion. Um, you could do also shock as well. Shock is essentially just kind of an oval shape. You can literally feel that in, and that's a little just like a circle you have to remember. One thing is you want you want to keep the forms Very simple, say this of lipids, like in shock. There in the upper left, you want to be able to keep up simple and simple shapes, which is kind of when you're drawing every kind of feature more about the mouth again. It would be just kind of the key things to remember the mouth as it's making some form of expression. This just roll that it's pushing outward on the lips or the skin around it. So let's just say that's and then filling in the dark of the mouth should be in the back here. We're drawing teeth in. See? That could be a mouth shape right there to be a nose here in the eyes, wherever they may be. But you're drawing that shape of the mouth, but it's pushing outward. So just remember that key thing. You should be fine again. Your simple flying shapes it is so easy to simplify likes it could be the straight line that it's kind of It's really hard. You can make any variation. You could make a straight line, a little bit of a dip right here. Like I said, there's a little dimple at the top of the lips. You can put that on. You don't have to, but the line under bites over bites, right? Like Simpsons like I was going over there. It's remarkably easy. Uh, do like a puckering, for example. That's when I see a lot of and puckering be like like that whistling right. It's kind of like the end of a balloon, and it's kind of going is pushing a little bit outward from the mouth itself on. That's kind of it. Like I said, number thes send very simplistic ideas, and you should be fine with any variety of mouth. Let's push on to the euro fast. The years also another simplified form. So the ears, actually, I think relatively complex when you're trying on actual year. I think that the actual years I always talk about it as letter is like a why letter. Why jammed inside of a question mark shape. The ear itself can be hard, like a realistic year. But way would. When I was a caricature artist, I would simplify years easy, simple light years in remarkably easy ways. It's so simple you can literally draw the letter C with a C inside of it to indicate the kind of the ribs and stuff. You could draw the letter C again and have that connect this time some of the inter portion year. You could draw a little bit of more elaborate year making, you know, the year lobe there, and you just try a little bit of, ah wiggly basically draw anything you want with the year just to kind of simplifying your little weekly shape in our circle. The gear itself is so insanely easy to to simplify, and it could even be this I know again. Got Peanuts and Charlie Brown. It could literally be the letter C not sticking dangling else, little dear dot At the edge of it, years are massively simple. That's I want to give it just kind of like this a little extra thing on. That's kind of it with the year. In all, honesty, I don't know, really helps to simplify the years. It's so simple. It's almost. It's pretty much an afterthought, so that's kind of for the features. Let's kind of talk about the head shapes and how to put those together. 6. Head Shapes /Hair: Okay, let's talk a little bit about head shape so I don't like head shapes of cartoon characters . The test. Be a couple of very typical ones, and that would be kind of why the wide, cheap one. So let's say this character's looking, uh, put into some filler shapes to see you talking about, uh, kind of cheek sticking out. It's a very typical shape for cartoons or just the general. I don't know what vegetables would be like Africa head or something. Just imagine. It's like a hair shape. Whatever hair shape that maybe these two shapes I see more than any other shapes within cartoons. Uh, you can create your own as well. If you look at various cartoons, there's there's all kinds of shapes you could be. But this isn't some General wants to start with. I feel some very simple ones. Maybe I could calls like a hardship or turnip turnip shape. This is like the cheeky county chief. One with cheeks are sticking out. You could kind of have variations of that. Let's go over really quick when you put it together, so right off the bat lets you can draw also from the outside in or the inside out. So right off the bat, let's drop from the outside in apple cheeks. Let's not do any hair right now, but cheeks right there, Little Chandra here and let's do the I was talking about right gravestone. Shape, eyes. Do the big pupils and Iris Giant Highlight Islet here. Let's draw some eyebrows. Didn't really talk about that. But, I mean, they're essentially just kind of rounded shapes. Draw a cartoon, knows big bulb of the edge of the right there the tip of the nose and then pulled back here for the nostril. And then the, uh, the wing of the nostril mouth draw just the street. Leinart here under bite. You have a cartoon face forming if you want to draw hair. I mean, I kind of need that cut into the shape with the hair, but really, there's there's really no right way with hair trial like this, Jimmy. New trauma confined. Oh, most drama don't forget years, which again are almost always an afterthought, is turning a little bit left so I could get away with trying just one year shape here and maybe draw a little bit ready for the chin for that changes direction and you have a cartoon head right there. Just a really simple basic cartoon head. And you could always change that shape really quick with hairstyles. Um, we could go over that side over here. Starts with a little look, Just a primer. Uh, hair is generally simple. It I tend to start from the middle right here, where the either there could be a widow's peak for the center. And you want to draw the hair in one form very similar to the way you actually draw here and drawings. You don't draw every strand. You draw it as one large shape, and then you dig into that shape. So right here, let's compliment general here. Shape, right, whatever it may be. And then you're holing hair from the corners here in the direction that it's growing in, and that's an indication you're indicating all that. The rest of the hair must be growing that way as well, without making it a mass without drawing in every strand cause it's gonna look like a huge mess. You don't do that. Cartoons and drawing in general, but especially cartoons about simplification of design. Your simplifying. Let's draw another hairdo. Um, let's trust something with here again. I'm starting with that hairline, pulling out a little bit separate shape right here, being a shape than pulling out those lines. But I am starting with justiceship. I'm thinking like that mo right here from Larry and Curly Moe, Or maybe link from legend is leaking like a part in his hair. Same thing goes for a long hair. If you want extend the long hair here, you can just do that. Just pull it out and, you know, form. Think of the large shape first and then wholesome small lines to indicate it. And you need to pull that many lines. Um, what else? With hair? If you want to hear that's gonna cover up the face or example like you know, you're gonna have to draw that here first. Like so pull small strands right here. I'm just pointing small strands because I'm about to pull a large kind of hair downward. Obviously, I'd have a body there Next. Um, we're over bodies, another video, But you have this hair see? So, for example, I want Fillmore strands out of it, then you want to just kind of like it's a large shape for hair and then pull strands and weaken doom. Or here is well, see, it'll only add a little more to it really won't take away from it. And regular her might have a little bit of a stair step as well. Where you here sometimes I could just kind of draw that in, uh, so keep that in mind really fast. What type of hair? Let's talk about the eyebrows. You could draw eyebrows is a block, or you can draw them as like directional hair. So let's go right here to do that right there. As long as they're going in the direction that you want them to. That could be singular lines, but usually one strong shape is is well enough for four eyebrows, and that is pretty much it for the head. 7. Demonstration of Process: Okay, so let's draw a very simple couple of heads here. Half the battle to start with really simple side of the face shin bottom of the face here. See? Very simple shape. It's like a eggplant C shape another she shape on the inside for the year. Tombstone shape, tombstone shape one iris or one shape right there inside. I am gonna put the highlight over there, and I actually might fill in the rest here. So usually filling in our prisons Brown eyes, the nose bulls down nostril wing of the nostril inside Dio downward hanging nose Going up here finding kind of where the hair is, uh, where the hairline is over here pulling down here for the widow's peak Going across that. I'm just finding that hairline first. I tend if I didn't get more comfortable that way. Uh, let's do the mouth just a really simple under bite. And then the edge of the smile There even draw small line right here. Show the mouth even drove like a bunch in. You can always add stuff here, like usual with thinner line. Let's do the cleft in the chin and then can I hear? Because you're gonna have Richie rich, like, slicked back here kind of hair. And then drive is a few lines from where I think the part in the hair is just a few over here as well to show direction and that's it. You've got this kind of rich, old sorry, his eyebrows really simple. And I brush it, I'm gonna put in there. So that's one character type. Uh, let's draw another one. Let's draw more of an old man type some job, gonna start from the inside out on this one inside out and draw nose first. I said, Captain, Crunch toe, I'm gonna draw a moustache or beard. We know rule for that, but kind of like droplets, right? Cause I know Captain Crunch like that pull down his open mouth. Your tongue on the inside. Let's fill in. Listen, listen. With black was gonna indicate a tongue line underneath. And like I said, you can use any head shape you want. Those other two were just ideas. You can draw kind of a square head shape, and if you really want, you can draw kind of upside down tombstone shape. That's what kind of demonstration. Let's do the tombstone shape but upside down. I guess it like a worried look inside right here. People in Iris are one highlights I like, and we can pull up. Well, I mean, I was thinking Captain Chris, like old man, but I'm not really gonna be kept in crush stew. So let's give him some hair strong. What are we not drawn? Curly hair? Let's go. Actually, let me draw his eyebrows. Let's give him curly here. See a lot of the stuff you can make up on the fly. Um, he's gonna have no your shape here. Well, you know, let's let's go a small your shape. You're toying with this stuff. There's so many cool variations you can do. But I'm just trying to give you the tools to create your own type of cartoon faces. He's got that was like some souls pasta, but that's a different character shape. Let's drug to Girl shapes two female shapes here, so let's start with the headship again. Firstly, missing. Let's start with the head shape first. Pointier chin still draw the bottom face year here, give that one a little bit of here. Low, small shape for the interfere pulling up. Let's do the big guys gonna make him a little bit bigger here. Still thinking in that tomb Stone shape, Way. Uh, people on iris are one pulling this line right here. It's gonna be the highlights, but then below that to be iris drawing eyelashes. That tends to be a female trait because they wear makeup. And you can, you know, make those as much as you want to make them very thick. I've been thinking them up a little bit right now, we can make them a little thinner. It's up to you and how you want to draw that, Uh, the nose is draw the animals style nose. But you know, not an enemy, of course, is, uh, nostril. And then small wing of the nostril, very small wing. Draw the female Lipsyte all right here and then feed the lip type for, like, a regular lip type test. Look like a Cupid's bow that top lip like sideways. And then you have usually too fat pads at the bottom lip that I make it bottom lip, usually on actual lips. There's a little bit closer to a real uptight, as opposed to like, um I would draw for for her eyebrows, I would make him thin. Are you gonna you know, given expression there if you want, and you can If you really want, you can draw like, let's say you get tired of hair. Start with that handshake a little bigger than normal. And what I'm gonna do Seem to start at the kind of hairline area inaudible, thinner, lines out like she has her hair tied back. They're all radiating from that center point, so just keep the direction line correct, and you'll be fine. And then so it doesn't look like she has shaved head. We're gonna draw ponytail, so it's crunchy over here, and, uh, you sell back here, you could make that little thicker depends on what you want. So that's one female type. Draw another one. Um, with a more square head, you can do that with a square head to like, just like Captain Crunch surfing the outside kind of cheeks chin have the drawing chin type usually, but chose to do it going to this time I'm gonna draw bangs, so the hair is a large part of the character on this one. So bangs the front of the hair like they're drawing that general shape for thinking simple shapes. And I'm gonna pulled small directional lines. And those directional lines were random, by the way. You could just do them as you want. Try, Make this random as you can, and I'm gonna pull up here and I'm gonna have her hair. The rest over here. Coming down. No. Look. Better with a body were not doing bodies right now. Bodies later. So let's go over here. Where her were her eyes. Her eyes will be covered by the banks. I think I'd be cool. Character? Yeah, become a pool character trade so I would draw the team stumbles being blocked by that prostrate lines There. You're like, creepier. Look. So bringing the camera bigger, smaller people in irons. Uh, see the nose, small round nose here, pulling out for the nostrils. And then I'm gonna draw both wings of the nostril here, and I think I might just give a regular smile lines here for the cider phase for this smile . Um, if I might even draw just the lower lip and maybe even a neck I haven't talked about next, but maybe like a long neck like it's a little girl or something. And then, uh, there you go. And if you really want to get, like, maybe cartoony cartoony, um, you control the eyebrows out here like I mean, she would prefer I wouldn't have the guy goes like this, but you can draw them over the bangs. That might be kind of daring. It kind of. It depends on your style. And that's why I love cartoons. Because you can go so far out there with what you wanna do. See enough. It looks all right. It looks okay. Um, you can just toy with this, uh, your kind of it's like customizing your own character like a video game. You're doing what you want on, and that's kind of it for pretty much everything. What I want you do for work is I want you to Well, I'll tell you the next video. But, uh, you know, try to experiment with yourself in terms of what kind of heads that you want to do. I would also let me give you some exercises in the next video to practice 8.
