About This Class


Hello and welcome to this class, where today you will be learning to draw Cartoon Portraits! In this class I will take you through the foundations of what makes a cartoon, through to showing you different face and body elements, with lots of examples and options of each to choose from, before bringing it all together to create your finished portrait.

I've made the resources of face and body elements available as a PDF download, available in the project and resources tab. So make sure you check it out.

By the end of this class you will be able to confidently convert a photograph of a person into a cartoon portrait. These are great as gifts!

The materials you will need in this class are:

- Paper

- A Pencil

- An Eraser

- A Drawing Pen

- Something to Colour With

- Someone to Draw

I can't wait to see what you come up with, so don't forget to add your finished piece to the projects gallery!
