Learn the basics of drawing stick figure cartoons with this video tutorial. You need just some drawing paper, a pencil and some imagination for this!
Draw a round head and a straight line body and 2 stick legs and 2 stick arms.
Bring it to life by drawing feet and hands. The hands have 4 fingers.
Happy face is made with 2 eyes and an arc for a smile. Add depth by making 2 little ovals or circles around the eyes. Make the eye balls beady.
For the mouth make a half moon out of the arc. Add a couple of teeth and shade up the inside of the mouth.
If it's a boy, add a hat on top.
If it's a girl, add a couple lashes on each eyes and draw some hair pouring out beneath the hat.
You can draw a pair of shorts on the legs and shade it in to hide the body lines.
Add a t-shirt, and shade a design on it to hide the stick line again.
Add lines and a logo to the hat.
Add a skate board or surf board on one hand.
To the feet just add a line and shade it. Draw a few lines to look like laces.
And voila! Your stick figure comes to life.
