LESSON 2: CARTOON CHARACTER MAKING
CARTOON CHARACTER MAKING
• Many of us are highly motivated by
the idea of cartoons. Cartoons are fun.
They amuse and entertain us to no
end. We are familiar with many
cartoons mainly because of their
characters. We simply love how they
become mediums to tell jokes or share
opinions about life and its endless
interesting situations.
• Look at some famous cartoon characters
shown below. Can you name them?
• WHAT ARE CARTOONS?
 Cartoon is a form of visual
communication that became
popular with the invention of
modern newspaper and motion
picture in the 20th century. Modern
cartoons were first used to attract
viewers to newspapers and movies.
• HOW DID THEY EVOLVE?
 Cartoon is as old as man. Just take a
look at the walls of prehistoric cave
dwellers. The earliest example of a
cartoon can be found in these places.
Although we do not find talking
mammoths, we do find in these places
something unique to all cartooning-
simplification.
Cartoon is an illustration of figures and
situations that is simple and easy for the
observer to comprehend.
• CARTOON CHARACTER
is a fictional character depicted in an
animated film or a comic strip.
Cartoon characters are as appealing to
adults as well as to children. Most of the
time, people just love to laugh at their
tricks and bad lack.
In computer-generated cartoon character
art, the elements and principles of art are
still use and apply even with the use of
technologies.
• CARTOONIST
(also comic strip creator) is a visual artist who
specializes in drawing cartoons. This work is
often created for entertainment, political
commentary, or advertising. Cartoonists may
work in many formats, such as booklets, comic
strips, comic books, editorial cartoons, graphic
novels, manuals, gag cartoons, graphic design,
illustrations, storyboards, posters, shirts,
books, advertisements, greeting cards,
magazines, newspapers, and video game
packaging.
• TYPES OF CARTOONS
1. EDITORIAL
CARTOONING
 is a one-panel or stand-alone comics in which
the main intent is to present an opinion.
An editorial cartoon does not, however, just
present opinion.
It uses biting wit, caricature, and subtle humor
to drive home its point.
It takes sides and provokes thinking on politics
and social issues.
• Examples:

Being single-frame, an editorial cartoon


delivers its message concisely, quickly, and
painlessly.
2. STRIP CARTOON
 the first thing that pops into your
mind when you think about
cartooning is COMIC STRIP.
Comic Strip is a series of little
drawings arranged box by box, some
or all of which contain dialogue. It is a
genre that has become familiar and
popular to many people.
Comic strip artists must not only
know how to draw, they must be a
good storytellers as well.
A staple in newspapers and
magazines, comic strips allow us
to look into the lives of the
characters that inhabit them.
• Examples:

Comics strip are popular because people like to


follow their favorite characters.
• Did You Know!

Talk balloon is that round bubble with a tail


that floats around inside most cartoons and
contains dialogue or a character’s thoughts.
3. CARICATURE
 some cartoons often model their
characters from famous people, such as
politicians or movie stars. They are often
drawn in unkind way, which exaggerates
certain things about them. This type of
drawing is called CARICATURE.
Caricatures are meant to make fun of the
people they show.
A caricaturist chooses certain
features about a person, such as
their nose or their teeth, then
draws these features in an
exaggerated way.
Honorè Daumier is a well known
French caricaturist.
He shows a French king turning
into a pear.
• Examples:

The artist was making fun of the king, whose


name is Louis Philippe for eating too much. He
was also suggesting the king was a fool.
• Important Aspects of
the Cartoonist’s Art
1. PHYSICAL FEATURES
 draw the cartoon with realistic
but exaggerated qualities to give
them personal style and traits.
cartoon and human body
proportions are not necessary
the same.
2. FACIAL CHARACTER
like the human face, we take in
cartoonish face for clues about
identity, personality, and mood.
it tells us a great deal about its
owner whether they are male or
female. old or young, pretty or
ugly, intelligent or stupid, fat of
thin.
the face says it all.
3. FACIAL EXPRESSION
the point of a cartoon is often
made through facial
expression.
you cannot afford to let the
reader miss the point, so your
depiction of an inner feeling
will need to be exaggerated.
4. HANDS
 are very expressive of character.
 can convey the feelings of
enjoyment, anger, or fright.
 they bear little relationship to
the hands we know in real life.
5. FEET
 including footwear are
important features of cartoon
characterization.
 the distortions that many
cartoonists make often
hilarious.
