Lunch Break by SaMelodii Lunch Break by SaMelodii
Before I started drawing anime and manga about 5-6 years ago, I was really into drawing cartoons. I think it all started in 5th grade when the middle school librarian gave me a book called "The Big Book of Cartooning." ^-^

Anyway, recently I have been getting back into drawing cartoons on the side of drawing all the anime stuff c: This is mainly because I have taken on the big challenge of completely animating a short french film for my French class film festival that's held every year, and I needed to draw political cartoons in my History class and obviously couldn't draw anime for the pictures because that wouldn't be considered a political cartoon.

I'm still improving on it, but I believe i have found something I can call "my style," but then again its probably not completely my style because it's no doubt influenced by so many other cartoon styles I have seen throughout the years. :iconsighingplz:

Oh well! This is just a sketch I drew a few weeks ago that really began my attempt of cartoon style again, and of course it's Hetalia related ^-^ :iconamericadancingplz:

And here's a link to my England cartoon!

You're welcome! How do you draw cartoon style? Or, when/how did you learn? Or where?

Well before I started drawing manga, I was always drawing cartoons ^-^ In 5th grade my librarian noticed all the little doodles I had in my notebooks and gave me this book called the "Big Book of Cartooning" because she thought the drawings had potential to be even better! c:

When I did start drawing manga, I kinda drifted away from drawing cartoons altogether, and I didn't like the idea of drawing something that wasn't my own cartoon style. But this year we had to draw political cartoons for History class, and I knew I couldn't use manga for that. So I just started sketching and the style you see in the picture just kinda appeared on the paper! >V<

I'm not really sure how it happened, but I think the combination of influence and improvement of artistic ability compared to my abilities as a 5th grader really helped to create the cartoon style you see in the picture! c:

if it will help you find your own cartoon style then go right ahead! ^-^

And If you upload a picture to Deviantart sometime in the future, send me a link so I can see it!! c:
