Cartoon Drawing Software:
Cartoons made Quick and Easy!
Cartoon drawing software may be what you are looking for if you've been trying to draw cartoons but can't seem to get the images quite right. There are many products on the market, ranging from inexpensive child's drawing tools to complete (and expensive!) graphics suites. I have found 3 of the best inexpensive cartoon drawing packages that would let you easily get into using your computer to create your own original cartoons.
Toonworks Deluxe, while it could be considered a children's graphics toy, is actually brilliant software that can be good for all ages. Though you have to download the full version (a cost of about $20.00 or $30.00 to have a CD shipped out), it is well worth it versus a trial version. The full program includes clip art, 100 cartoon characters, and lots of special effects (including the Distort-o-matic option), and support of almost any type of image file that can be stored on your computer. While the program is geared to introduce children to computer graphics design, it can also be a lot of fun for adults, and shouldn't be discounted by grown beginners.
Another cartoon drawing software that's available these days is Pixia, which comes from Japan. This software is free and has a real cult following in Japan. The software has just released a new english version, so I would recommend going to check it out - you certainly can't beat the price! FREE!
Sketch Studio is also a cartoon drawing software that is geared toward children. This software actually takes children (or adults) through lessons on how to draw through 2 cute cartoon characters Sketch and Smudge. While the lessons start out quite easy with the concept of staying within the lines and introducing children to the idea of smudging. As the lessons progress, so does the difficulty level, so that children (or interested adults) are always learning something new about drawing and improving their skills.
These are some of the best cartoon drawing programs that you'll find. They are inexpensive, and since they are not pointing at one particular type of person or area of expertise (all of them are filled with general topic matter that progresses), they can interest people of all backgrounds and ages. Toonworks, Pixia, and Sketch Studio are all great places to start if you want to learn from cartoon drawing software.
