Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw Chinese cartoons. So I'm going to draw a cartoon dragon. So I'm going to start with an oval for the nose. Put the circles behind the nose for the eyes. And then his body is going to come behind his head. So he's going to be really simple. And pretty cute. So we are just going to follow the lines around, really basic right now. And I'll fill in the rest of the body. So I'm going to fill in a circle just around the eyes cause I want the eyes to be the biggest thing. And this is going to be his head. Lets color that in nice and green. And his head comes up. And you can make this any sort of shape you like. I'm just going to give him something a bit more interesting then just a round circle, 'cause dragons have a lot of different shapes. Then you can give him all of his tassel-y bits at the top. It's almost like fire. And then we get in eyes a couple of circles. Make them really big so they can be really cute. His nostrils come up over the top of our nose circle. And then a little curly line to make his mouth. And a couple of more curly lines for his whiskers. Now lets get into the body a little bit. So I'm going to give him a couple of arms that come off. Just really simple arms off the front of his body. And this way we can give him a belly. A couple of lines across here but that's going to hide so lets just color in all of this that comes around. And the belly comes around here cause he's twisting around. And then a couple of more tassels on the bottom. So there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw Chinese cartoons.
