In this video, we show you how you can draw cartoon faces using a reference photo as a starting point. First, we show a very simple cartoon face that even a complete beginner can draw by using a few simple shapes. A simple cartoon face like this can be used to create your own comic story.

Then we show how to draw a slightly more complex cartoon face. We use the same reference photo for this, but this time draw a more realistic face shape. Then we create exaggerated features like very large eyes and eyelashes.

Sandra, who usually paints very realistically, then shows some of the cartoon faces that she has been working on to go with a story we have written.

What sort of cartoon face do you want to create? Why not create a cartoon of your own face. If you’re a beginner you could create a really simple circular face style cartoon. Once you get the hang of that, try a more complex cartoon with a little more detail.
