Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist. And today we are going to draw some big headed characters. So the first thing we are going to do is we are going to start with the head. Ideally we want to have a nice big round shape for the head. So now lets just go to the body and we'll come back to the head. When you draw the body of the character you want to make it small in comparison so that the head looks extra large. So we are going to do this character sitting down. We're just going to give him a little body and we are going to have his little feet kind of over to the side here coming out. And he's going to have little hands that are just sort of put down on the ground there. Okay, so there's our little, little guy. Now we are going to go back and work on the character of the head. So since he has a big head we are going to give him big eyes. Big round eyes. And we'll make little eyebrows at the top. We are going to give him a little nose, just a little round nose. And a big ole smile to go with his big old head. There we go. Give him little ears and how about some hair kind of sticking up on top here. There we go. And that is how you draw a big headed character.
