Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw an animated person. We're going to start off by drawing the eyes and draw two large ovals, pretty close to each other and slightly at an angle. And on the inside of that, two large circles for the pupil and then below the eyes we're going to give him a nice curvy nose. We'll bring out his cheeks leading down to his neck. We're going to curve in and then a curved line to close that off. We're going to give him a nice big smile, so a curved line right below the nose, then a half circle for the ear, then another half circle underneath that for the earlobe. Same thing over here and some eyebrows above the eyes. We're going to put them at an angle a little bit and we'll go ahead and draw some hair, go straight up and add some waviness in there, add it to the top and he has some nice big poofy hair. We'll shade some of that in. We'll go ahead and give him a neckline for his shirt, bring his shoulders out, diagonal lines down, put a crease in the shirt, down and curved line to close off the shirt. We'll have his sleeves come out at an angle and his arms also extending out, then bending back in at the elbow and we're going to put his hands on his side, fingers out, a curved line for the wrist, leading to the finger, then the other fingers behind that. The last thing we're going to give him some shorts, come out at an angle on both sides, a curved line, a curved line and then up, up, and connect the point. Some curved lines for pockets and of course the rest of his leg and come straight down out of the shorts, put a curved line, give him some socks and then we'll give him some shoes. And there we go, there is our animated person. After this you can go back in and add some shading if you'd like in certain spots. It's not needed but sometimes it helps. And that's it, that is how you draw an animated person. Thank you for watching and keep on drawing.
