Cartooning is not about drawing but telling stories. Yes, even when you draw a single illustration, you tell a story. Cartooning is about expressing your thoughts. And these are your beautifully expressed thoughts through your cartoon characters that set you apart from other average cartoonists.
But as in all other areas of life, you must also learn to walk before trying to run. To express your thoughts and ideas through your cartoon characters, you must first master the art of cartoon drawing. So, of course, you can use your cartoon skills to tell a story to your liking.
To be skilled in comic drawing, you have to deal with a learning curve. You can not decide to be a draftsman, then copy popular cartoon characters and become an accomplished draftsman who is rich and famous. If you are lucky and talented with a keen eye for observation, you can pick up one or two tricks by making a copy of popular cartoon characters. But this is too much to be useful.
There are many ways to learn cartoon drawing – one can join the cartoon school or take a home course or follow a book by an expert draftsman – In the end, you must follow the steps. As you should first learn how to draw 3D shapes, then learn how to stretch, crush these 3D shapes in your drawing. Then you have to practice things like drawing hands and head before moving on to movement and emotion and advanced things like that.
If that sounds like a lot of work, you're right. But what you accomplish in the end is worth it to be worked on. If you are smart, you can use the tips you will discover here to make the whole learning process fast and painless.
==> Do not start with computers. I agree, I run the risk of appearing retroactive. But here I am not opposed to using the computer altogether, no healthy-minded person can do it. But for beginners, there is no alternative but to use paper and pencil.
There are various software programs that help you so much that you can go ahead even without learning to draw a smooth line. This type of excessive dependence on computers always turns on the road.
2. ==> Nail in your mind that the construction of humans, animals, cars and most of the things we see around us are complex structures in 3D, although we draw them on paper that is in 2D. So when you draw, you have to mentally analyze your model in terms of 3D shapes like spheres and boxes and not in terms of 2D shapes like circles and rectangles.
Also, when you draw something on paper (2D) the 3D shapes that make up the character.
3. ==> Most cartoon cartoons or drawing figures always start with some basic 3d shapes and after a number of steps are found in a complete and beautiful figure.

It is actually in a very simple way to use the same tutorial. Just a lot more efficient.
What you need to do is start where the tutorial ends and go back from there. See the finished figure and try to recognize the basic shapes of the ingredient. And compare your analysis with the exact shapes that are used in the tutorial.
