•April 17, 2009 • 1 Comment

I love reading comic books (mostly Japanese ones), and since a child I had loved to draw these cartoon characters — especially when I was bored in the classroom 😛 I just drew characters’ heads with pencil. I am still not good in drawing the postures, nor in colorizing them.

Smashing Magazine lists 40+ cartoon character illustration tutorials using Photoshop and Illutrator.

We are sure all of the tutorials in this post will be a great help to you. We have made sure to include illustrations that will guide you step by step to easily learn how to create cool and interesting cartoon characters in Illustrator and Photoshop. You will also learn the basic skills required to create your own interesting and attractive characters. We also feature some powerful tips, tricks, tools and other resources that may help you make a variety of cartoon character illustrations.

I’m sure that you can also do that in GIMP or Pixia (created for cartoon drawing). Would love to try them when I have time (when will that be? 🙄 )

Wish I were brave enough to say, Non! Rien de rien …
