How to Draw a Cartoon Girl

Drawings of people are an integral part of most cartoons, comic books, and fine art. Yet, many artists find drawing people accurately to be a difficult task.

Would you like to be able to add a cartoon girl to your own art collection? Now you can, by following this easy, step-by-step drawing guide.

All you will need is a piece of paper and a pencil. You may also want to use an eraser to correct any mistakes, and crayons, colored pencils, or markers to color your finished drawing.

Each step of this simple drawing guide is accompanied by an illustration. In each step, new lines added in that step are shown in blue. Lines drawn in previous steps appear in black. Sketch lightly at first, as you will be erasing some of your early lines, called guide lines, as you go along.

Draw a curved line to add detail within each ear. Draw a smaller circle within each eye, and two tiny circles within the inner circle. Shade the area between the tiny circles and the inner circle. Draw a series of curved lines across the torso.

Color your cartoon girl. Does she have blonde, brown, black, or red hair? Is her skin pale or dark, and what color are her eyes? What does her dress look like? It’s all up to you, so be creative!
