Hi. My name's Jessica and I'm an artist. And today we're going to draw a cartoon holding a football. So, basically we've got, we're going do a cartoon guy. So, this guy's got a football helmet on. And the helmet comes around like that. Maybe I went a little too far there. Basically, there's his face area up here, here's his eye. And these are the helmet parts protecting his face area. Then he's got these big old shoulders because he's you know, he's like a football guy. And he's holding the ball in his hands. So, he's going to have his thumb and then his hand's kind of wrap around the ball, like that. And the ball is going to be like that. So, for those of you who don't know, a football is basically shaped kind of like and almond, kind of like that. And usually it's got these lines on top like so. So, he is holding, we'll go one stitch there so you can see he's holding the ball. Kind of a short sleeve thing because you know, those uniforms have short sleeves and a v-neck in the front. And this guy's going to be like kneeling with the ball. He's got like kind of you know, a small waist area. And he's go one leg down. So, like that and then another leg out like that. And he's holding the ball. Maybe somebody's going to come over and do something with it. He's got like short pants on. And then you can go back in and you can color in his outfit. Color his pants blue if you like or red or black or yellow. You know, I just like to put shoelaces on shoes. It's like my own little finishing touch. And then he's got you know, his shirt and we'll give him a green helmet. Green helmet, just like that. You can't really see much of their face. It's behind that, that grill. Maybe have a little bit of a chin maybe that sticks out like that. And that's about it guys. That's how you draw a cartoon holding a football.
