As the title says, these are five unique cartoon characters that I drew last night. I actually drew more but these are the most awsomest best five unique cartoon characters. Anyway I want you guys to pick your favourite character by commenting. If you are on of the people who picked the winning unique character then I'll send you (you meaning, everyone that picked the winning character) a giant desktop sized version of the winning cartoon character. If there are any questions feel free to post it in the comments. The pictures are numdered top to bottom, so the top cartoons character is number 1 and the bottom cartoon is number 5, use these numbers to identify them in your comments Don't Forget To Leave Your Name And Email In The Comment.

Wacky Character

Small Cute Character
Neck Tied Character











Cartoon Guy With Glasses fd=
Cartoon Shaved Guy

















Update:


I feel kinda stupid now, because I was thinking should these cartoon characters have all the same height or width? Well I went with height thinking "I'll just put them side by side and they'll look fine". Well I was wrong the Blogger editor won't let me place these cartoons side by side. So now I'm thinking I should have lined up the width.

One more bonus for reading this far: If you leave your website or blog URL in your comment I'll visit it and leave a related comment there (you'll know if I left the comment, I hope).

These are my favourite web comics and I thought I'd share them with you. Thier all funny and I could guarantee a laugh out of all of them, but I won't for legal purposes and all (that was a joke). Anyway enjoy.

This Web Comic is the work of Brad Fitzpatrick though I don't know him, his comics are hilarious. It doesn't look like he has posted any comics recently, but he has a personnel blog/site at http://www.bradfitzpatrick.com/weblog/. He updates that site every once in a while, sometimes with new comics.

This web comic here is known as Cyanide and Happiness. It's also very funny but not related to blogging or anything like that. They have several artists and I really don't know that much about them.

3. BlogComics.net
I was buzzin around the web today and I came across a site called Blogcomics.net. Anyway this guy doesn't have that many comics (maybe 25?), so it doesn't look like he or she is going to make anymore. The artist for all the comics is Karlo Licudine he's the blogger behind http://www.pinoyblogero.com/.

Learning From Wikipedia

This is my sketch of a cartoon pirate. I couldn't exactly find a pirate looking hat for him but whatever it's a cartoon. I might do a little pirate series, like some more pirate characters or a pirate ship, maybe even a parrot. Some could even be tutorials. I'm not sure if I'll do a pirate series yet. Drawing him was kinda fun, a got the idea of drawing a cartoon pirate from the spoon graphics blog, except I was trying to go for more of a scary or vicious looking kind guy. So yeah, please comment.















(the hat looks like it would be more suitable for a cowboy)










Well last night as I went to take a picture of my lastest sketch the LCD on my camera went all fuzzy. That kinda threw me off, then I thought why not look through the optical lens thing(whatever it's called). Well I was wrong, even though I could see through that piece clearly the camera was actually taking pictures of what was on my display.
Camera Canon PowerShot A75
Then this morning I woke up, went to my camera, prayed then turned it on. I was standing there amazed because my camera was working fine. I went searching on the internet for why the screen went fuzzy and how to fix it, but i couldn't find any straight answers. My camera's a three year old Canonn PowerShot A75. I'm still however trying to find out how it broke.

Anyway, I'll have my new character up later today.

Well I've decided to go with Adtoll as the guys who are going to advertise on my blog. So the reffering link is right here. For those of you who have a blog and want some advertising on it, maybe you could help me out by clicking that link.

This is the drawing that I drew in the post just before this one. He's a cartoon teenager, with long hair over his eyes and a big nose. A very easy character to draw, and you even get a nice shadow of me.


This is my first video tutorial. This video shows how to draw a basic character then later how to trace over and colour it on the computer.



Remeber to always draw the basic shapes of the character first. That makes drawing easier if you have a more complex character.
