By Essie Osborn

Hearing the sound of your children's laughter when you sit down with them and quickly sketch a funny bunny or show them how to do the same thing is music to many peoples ears. Not everybody can do this for their kids but it is possible to do if you have a desire to learn. The art of how to draw cartoon characters is available to everybody who wants it.

You can access lessons in quite a few places but finding the instructor that works best for you may take some searching. In order to get the skills you need you first need an instructor that you connect with. Someone that is willing to work with you at your pace and knows when to put a little more pressure on you if necessary.

A good instructor should be capable of bringing you to expert levels of drawing fairly easily. They will have the skills to teach you as well as the patience to work at a speed that works well for you. You may be able to locate a specialized artist that is close to your home.

Searching the internet is a good place to begin your search for training. The number of different sites and techniques you find there will give you an excellent idea of what you are looking for and what type of cartooning you want to learn. There are a number of different types of images that are available to copy. You may find that you can recreate all of your favorite characters from Disney and from your comic book heroes.

The basics of creating your own funny faces and people can also be learned from the internet. By using your imagination you will be able to take the techniques shown online and make original comics or comedic animals. You will learn where to position the eyes and ears on the faces as well as to create expressions on the faces you make. It is said that you can model the facial expressions after faces that you make yourself. You might want to practice in the mirror before you put them to paper.

Art courses are offered at colleges and night classes also. These classes are less specific and may take much longer to reach the goal you have in mind. They are designed to present a generalized familiarity with the subject and prepare you for the next class available to you.

Book stores are also a good place to look for this training. There you will find a multitude of books that are designed to teach you to sketch, draw and paint your creations. This will allow you to develop your own style of drawing while learning from professionals at your own speed. You may find the same books available at the city library. This will prove much less expensive than purchasing the books before you are able to explore them for content.

Setting a goal of learning to be a skilled cartoonist can be a lot of fun for you. Because of the techniques you learn a world of fantasy will open up to both you and your family and should you want to try to create a career of your new talent you will have a very good start.
