Inform your figure drawing and artistic choices by working from imagination, analyzing art, and working from the model.
Learn some basic elements of drawing a cartoon figure, like body forms, balance, movement, perspective, features, and drapery and use these basics in creating your own imaginary figures.
With full permission to experiment, exaggerate, and be totally playful, the goal is to have fun while you learn.
Examine the drawings, paintings and sculpture of selected contemporary and historical artists, to see how they use these same basic elements and how they bring their own distinctive expression into making their art. Discover what elements speak to you and then use these when drawing from the live model.
