Humorous cartoons and drawings first rose to fame during the 1840s, and animation abounded from the early 1900s onward. As with literature, the jester archetype found its place in comics, animated films, and cartoon series.

A goofy, clumsy, or incompetent character like this one in this guide is often provided for comic relief. He or she may be a main character or play a supporting role.

He may be a constant feature - for example, appearing in each episode of a series - or appear occasionally or just once.

The hyena Ed in The Lion King is a nonhuman example of this type of character. Mad scientists or a villain's minions may also fill this role.

How to Draw a Crazy Character Step 01

1. Begin by sketching the nose and eyes. Draw two curved lines - one for the nose and one for the top of the cheek. Above each line, use a long curved line to enclose a partial oval. These are the eyes. Notice that one eye is bigger than the other. Then, shade a small circle to form the pupil in each eye. Note that one eye is looking up, the other down.

2. Draw the mouth. Use curved lines to outline the upper lip, lower lip, buck teeth, tongue, and the dimple at the corner of the mouth. Draw a short line to separate the teeth, and another below the mouth to contour the chin.

3. Use a long curved line to outline the face. Then, draw "C" shaped lines on each side to outline the ears. Draw a curved line within each ear to detail its interior. Draw a curved line above each eye to form the eyebrows. Then, draw two triangles, each open at one corner, below the head. This outlines the neck and shirt collar.

5. Use curved lines to outline the shirt. Extend lines outward from the neck to form the shoulders. Then draw "L" shaped lines to complete the sleeves. Draw the torso, a curved rectangular shape, using three curved lines. Draw curved lines to indicate where the sleeve attaches to the shirt and the sleeve opening. Draw a circular button below the shirt collar.
