Hey guys, this is Chris here and I'm going to show you how to draw newspaper cartoons today. So, basically I'm going to draw a guy holding a newspaper. And I'm going to start with a line in the back and then a line in the front. But I'm going to give him a little bit of a pointy nose. So, it's going to be like that. And then finish it off at the bottom. I think he deserves a hat. So, I'm going to do a, a little bit of a line over the top with a little bit of a.. at an arch. And then a couple of lines going up like that. And then there's his hat for you. I'm going to make a little bit of a wavy line at the top. Now, I think he's, he's a little bit just looking behind his shoulder maybe, thinking about something else. So, here's one eyebrow since this is like a profile view. And I'm going to make it look like he's.. he's kind of got one eyebrow up, not really sure what's behind him. But here's his eyeball. I'm going to draw almost like a half moon kind of shape, and then finish it off at the bottom with another, another line. It looks like he's looking behind him a little bit, at something. I'm just going to give him a smile line for the mouth. And then I'm going to give him a coat. So, you're going to draw a little short swooping line there, another line there that connects. And then he's kind of sitting, so this is his back. And then we're going to do his arms so you're going to do like a, kind of a swooping line that goes up like that, another swooping line below that. It kind of goes up like that, and his fingers. So, that's his thumb. He's holding a paper that he's going to be holding. And then underneath it's going to have like, that's part of his hand. Here's the paper. You're going to draw a line that goes kind of up like arks up like that, another line that goes like that and another line that arks back, and another line down. Now the middle of the paper is right there, so you're going to draw a little bit of line, maybe there's some writing on it, and maybe there's a couple of pages. So, you want to do a lot of different lines there. Finish off the front of the coat. Once you got that done, and maybe he's got like a little bit of a belly, so it's kind of.. kind of up like that. Maybe he's got some hair and an ear. And he's also thinking about something. So, maybe you want to put a thought bubble up here. And maybe he's thinking about something like a.. maybe he's thinking about breakfast. So, maybe he's thinking of eggs. Should draw some eggs there, good old fashioned sunny side up eggs. But he's hungry and he's reading the newspaper and he's just thinking about these eggs. But you guys can be as creative as you want and do whatever you want. Just keep your mind open you know. But there's newspaper cartoon and enjoy and keep creative.
