Learn to Draw Faces

Back when the Captain was 7 years old, a visiting art teacher gave him a drawing lesson that would change his life: "The eyes go in the middle of the head."

Captain Cartoon's Virtual Sketch Pad
Sketch with a very light color, then draw over it with a darker color, just like the example in the right column. Be careful, the circle with the line through it will clear everything you've drawn, so don't click it unless you want to start completely over!

How to draw figures and heroes
start with stick figure to draw body

DRAWING GHOST STORY CLUB'S ZACK: Start out with a simple stick figure showing the pose you want to draw. Draw the body shape around the stick figure, then, finish it up. make sure the stick figure is light enough to erase.
