Beautiful! I love the first one!
Really nice, Amir! Love the hair in the first one. I always love how you ink.Yeah, doing disctinct cartoony girls are hard. It takes me a while to get the likeness in.I usually copy a photo of a girl realistically first and then write down notes of what makes her seem so distinct, like round face, elongated forehead, slanted eyes, etc. Then I caricature those features and keep doing more caricatures to get more accustomed to her general look. Once I feel like I have a grasp of how she looks, I then try to do some simplified, cartoony versions of those caricatures until I feel like I found the right one for a cartoony look. I put the caricature and photo side by side to make sure the drawing feels and looks exactly like the girl.I got this from John K. when he posted some of his caricature studies on his blog when I had to do the Nicki Clyne fan 'zine.I wasn't really expecting to write so much info on how I usually go about it, and it's more on making a caricature of a person rather than creating a random distinct cartoon girl, but I think some of it still applies and thought this might be helpful to you if you wanna continue drawing more specific cute girls.
Nico- Thank you!Fantastic methodology, Perdo! Thanks for sharing :D
No problem! It takes me a while to get used to doing caricatures and I'm still trying to learn stuff whenever I get the chance. I wish I could do 'em on the spot though like many awesome artists.
