In this section of the site, you will have the opportunity to learn how to draw animals made from basic elements and shapes. Several types of cartoon animals are included like farm animals, wild animals and insects.
All cartoon characters are create from circles, rectangles or squares. I use plain colors to illustrate these animals to make sure they are easy to read and easy to recognize.
Then, once basic shapes are added to serve as guidelines, you can sketch small curved and straight lines to form the illustrations. Most characters are done within four steps while others are created in six steps.
Don't forget to practice often if you want to improve your drawing abilities quickly and effectively. Working on several characters is also a good idea since they represent various challenges not found elsewhere.
For example, a butterfly is mostly made from curved lines while a bulldog often contains several triangles. You can either draw these images using a pencil and a piece of paper or try to do like I did and create these animals using a vector application (which is harder, but can develop different abilities). Enjoy!
