Cartooning 101.2- The Mental Fun of Fundamentals
Lets get our supplies together first. Pencil Eraser Paper Well that was easy, who knew you could do so much with so little. Art is just self expression but like all structures you must begin with that first piece. All things are built out of shapes. The foundation of drawing a good structure is being aware of its shape. Lets start with something basic like a house or cabin, its shapes are real easy.
You see the use of the different rectangles used and the triangle for the roof, its really basic but even the details are basically the same. All it took were some basic shapes put together and there you have it a simple cartoon house.
Try this on your own take something simple like a house or a fence or even a chair( simple chair) and break it down to simple shapes then put them together to see if it looks similar to the original.
