How to Draw a Cuddly Cartoon Baby
When you start your drawing, you may wonder how you can make him or her appear all cuddly and cute, like a real baby would be. The trick to drawing a squeezable baby is to use of egg-shaped pieces. Are you ready to get started?
Step One: Head and Body
Step Two: Ears and Limbs
At the lower left-hand point where the head and body overlap, draw a thin, upside down egg. On the back end of the body, do the same. Also, make sure the tip of the egg points slightly in toward the body. In the center of your "body"; egg, draw a smaller oval.
For the ears, you'll draw a "C"; shape on either side of the head "egg";, with the one on the left side of the page sticking out further than the one on the right.
Step 3: Eyes and Diaper
To draw pupils, draw "C"; shapes lying on their backs inside the top of each of those circles. Above the eyes, draw two slanted lines for raised eyebrows. You now have a curious cartoon baby.
For the diaper, draw an arc that resembles a shallow backward "C"; starting where the back leg crosses over the body. Complete the diaper with another backward "C"; bumping out of the back of the baby and touching the top of the leg.
NOTE: In the next step you'll erase some of your original lines in step 3. It's a good idea to erase these lines first before moving the step 4.
Step 4: Face and Feet
To finish out this original stub of a leg, you'll start by adding another oval lying on its side, curving straight into the bottom round portion of the existing stump. On the other end of the new oval, you'll make tiny bumps for the toes.
To complete a second back leg, you'll simply draw a small curved "L"; shape from the belly of the egg body to just above where the knee will be on the other leg. "waves"; for toes and add an extra bump for a heel at the top. Add a couple of unruly strands of hair coming out of the head, and you are almost done.
Step 5: Finishing the Arms
For the other hand, we'll draw two more ovals, one large one starting at the base of the arm and going left and a smaller one going to the right. Curve a line like the angle of the oval on the left to divide out another finger.
Now, you are ready to erase extra lines and overlaps. Once you've done that, you can color your new cartoon baby to indicate if "it's a girl!"; or "it's a boy!";
