Art Techniques and Skills Christopher Hart explains how he drew this gloomy ballplayer. Step 1Although the basic head shape is big and round, it still has angles. The cool look of the character depends on a well-crafted outline. Step 2A small, upturned nose is almost always used for young kids. Step 3Remember when drawing a hat or a cap that it doesn't sit on top of the head but sinks down, surrounding it. Notice how pointy the knees are. The character is half-cartoon, half-graphic design.
