How to Draw a Cartoon People - for Beginners

1093 ratings | 88960 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. Now let's get started!

Raging Ethal (15 days ago)
All of us had different style of our characters i had my own i call it "FallBreak Version" | press that to be blue V
Awesome video! I’m a lefty also & been drawing all my life. I hate smearing my art cuz of my left hand. U have the same issue?
Yea it’s my signature, if it ain’t smudged then it’s not my original work. 😃
Christopher Hart (22 days ago)
It plagued me when I wrote, but when drawing, it doesn't matter. Who cares if a drawing looks smudged? It gives it a spontaneous look!

Georges FOTIC (1 year ago)
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 (1 year ago)
Yes, you need the feeling of the character, but the techniques are the language you use to bring them to life.
Sonali Shrau (1 year 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)
Me too

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.
Clea (9 days ago)
Apparently left handed people are generally more creative, or creative people are more likely to be left handed. One of those
2 Girls 1 Doll (4 months ago)
webadage because us lefties shall rule the world
Meta Brooklyn (4 months ago)
webadage I’m left handed lol
Little weirdo (9 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 (11 months ago)
webadage its because the way of the camera is facing is always the opposite side
Amy Samin (1 year ago)

Hes left
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 (2 years ago)
I really appreciate that.
matt (2 years 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 (2 years ago)
Good suggestion, thanks.
Patnip Baka (2 years 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 (2 years 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.

Maybe online? Amazon has all of them. Thanks for asking.
caci (2 years ago)

Clinton Watkins (2 years ago)
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 (2 years ago)
I bet you can really make use of this technique, Clint.
Timo Aygistov (2 years ago)
