Draw Cartoon Head – Front
Below, the 4 illustrations show you a simplified way of cartooning the front view of a head.
Finished Cartoon Characters’ Head (Front View)
Remember, by making the chins, noses and ears slightly smaller or bigger than those of the average head you can achieve comic effects and bring out character or expression more effectively. The hair lines should always by drawn in the direction in which it grows or is combed.
The illustration above shows how a two-thirds view of a head is planned. The front view and the side view. Guide lines are combined to form an oval.
The illustration above shows the two main steps in drawing this view of a cartoon head (2/3 view).
Now study the different types of ears, eyes, noses, hair, chins, and mouths shown on the rest of this page and practice drawing them, trying to originate some other types not shown. Below you will see many different types of heads. Study these, then, using the ears, eyes, noses, etc. to make up a number of heads of your own, drawing all the views you can.
