Basics on How to Draw Funny Cartoons

Have you ever wondered as to how to draw funny cartoons? The process is actually not that hard at all, the main thing to remember is to have patience. We all have been there sitting down and reading our favorite comic strip and wondered how this character came to be.

In most cases the artist either had the ability naturally or sat down and practiced until the cartoon came to life on it's own. Drawing a funny cartoon is a lot like creating a piece of art, depending on what you have in mind depends on how you will proceed.

Take for example an animal, first if you ever take the time to stop and look most animals look a lot like each other. One example of this is horses and cows. Both of these animals stand up so it would be a good place to start with drawing the legs first.

After you have drawn the legs then it comes time for your most important tool to come into play, it's time to use your imagination. After you have drawn the legs it's now time to let your mind wander and experiment with various things to make your cow or horse take on that comedic effect.

The one thing that you need to remember is that all drawing consist of is drawing lines in a way to form a picture. So if you can draw a straight line you can draw a cartoon that will make your friends laugh. One of the best examples of letting your mind be set free when it comes to drawing is the cartoon show Family Guy. After all has anyone seen a baby with a football shaped head, of course not that was the creation of a person who sat down and started to explore the world of drawing and it turned into something very funny.
