I decided to dedicate this lesson to drawing a human figure, and now you will learn how to draw a cartoon boy. In this lesson, you will acquire useful skills that you may need in the future to create new beautiful drawings.
You will use simple lines to draw the different parts of the boy’s body. In this drawing, facial features and clothing are not detailed. Note that the boy has a large head and a relatively small torso. You only need to be attentive and careful.
Try to keep these proportions in your drawing. For coloring clothes, you can choose the same colors as in the instructions or any other colors of your choice. Now take your art supplies and start doing the lesson.
