How to Draw a Cartoon People - for Beginners

935 ratings | 75853 views
Caution: children should use child-safe art supplies. Learn how to draw a funny cartoon step by step. Follow my easy drawing tutorial as I demonstrate the tips and tricks that I use to create original characters. It begins by first establishing basic shapes for the head and body, followed by the details. However, it's important to keep it simple. That actually helps to give it style. And I'll add a goofy expression, to give the character personality. For this picture, I'll sketch with a pencil. Whether you like to draw cartoon characters in the style of the Regular Show, Disney, or anime, you'll enjoy these principles. Thanks for joining me, your cartooning sherpa, Christopher Hart.

very instructive technic. we see that the technic is important but added to a talent and a kinda artistic feeling. congrats from Paris again!
Christopher Hart (11 months ago)
Yes, you need the feeling of the character, but the techniques are the language you use to bring them to life.
Sonali Shrau (11 months ago)
wow nice
Your videos made me fell in love with cartoon style, I'm an amateur at drawing that just draw for relax, but I always used to draw anime, but I used to love cartoons when I was a kid, and never thought about drawing cartoon, you makes me feel that I can do it, so I will start practicing til I be at least 50% as amazing as you. A hug from Brazil!
Christopher Hart does your books sell overworld? I'd love to buy that character compilation one. But I'm afraid that it would become too much expensive to get by mail.
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
You sound so motivated - that's one of the most important elements in learning to draw. And you can't teach that. You're on your way - good luck!
Jason Cabral (1 year ago)

Used to hate drawing, these videos might be my gateway to LOVING it
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
That sounds great to me!
Kailcratos (1 year ago)
Could anyone tell me how a tutorial like this is filmed? Id love to do videos but I have to hold the camera.
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
With a tripod and an extension. A camera shop will walk you through it.
webadage (1 year ago)
Hey, QUESTION. I've probably watched more than 500 drawing videos and I suspect 99.95 % of those drawing in the videos are left handed. Why is that? Is that significant? Because I'm NOT left handed.

webadage because us lefties shall rule the world
Meta Brooklyn (1 month ago)
webadage I’m left handed lol
•XDman X• (6 months ago)
I am and it sucks! Because everyone i know is right handed so must of their stuff is for right handed people, and when people see i am left handed they act like they just saw a alien from mars
Ryza Bernardino (8 months ago)
webadage its because the way of the camera is facing is always the opposite side
That Guy (10 months ago)
webadage butch Hartman (creator of Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, etc.) is right handed and so is Jazza (Draw with Jazza)
Amy Samin (1 year ago)

Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
Yes indeed.
Barath Iraiyarul (1 year ago)
Can you please put some videos on "how to draw the eye (or) lips (or) foot (or) fingers"... this might sound silly, but those small details add real beauty to a cartoon. Some of 'em draw beautiful cartoons but will not be able to give those details
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
Yes, that's a good point, thanks.
Barath Iraiyarul (1 year ago)
I love the way you draw. You are my inspiration chris

Thank you for everything I watch your videos and I have three of your books and I went to the library and borrowed two books. And hey helped me so much my money was worth it not only do u give step by step detailed but you also give a variety of items to do thanks so much!
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
I really appreciate that.
MattFragss (1 year ago)
Can you make a video on how to make a character with a detailed background pls
Greg Hansen (1 year ago)
I would like to second that. I'd like to see scenes with possibly multiple characters interacting, with a background. It would be more work and take longer, but maybe every once in a while.
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
Good suggestion, thanks.

showman139 (1 year ago)
Christopher Hart I actually jumped the gun and bought your book. I thought it would help and took a chance also I have other drawing books that could help me on my journey. Thank you for your reply and please continue posting the way you simplify drawing helps alot of people.
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
You would enjoy my new book, "Figure It Out: Essential Poses." You can use the info to draw realistic or cartoon characters.
Christopher Hart I agree I hate channels who only do already made cartoon.

Love the video. I liked the new approach to the "line of action." I'd never thought about starting the character first and then altering the line to suit. Thanks for the tip.
Christopher Hart (1 year ago)
I bet you can really make use of this technique, Clint.
Timo Aygistov (1 year ago)
