How to Convert Texture to Cartoon Styles

    • 1). Draw the basic outlines, features and elements of the cartoon. Try to include a variety of subjects in your cartoon to help you practice drawing textures.

    • 2). Add texture to the cartoon figure's fur or hair. Draw short, broken lines in the space outlined for the cartoon character's hair. This will give the hair a straight, stringy texture. If you are adding fur to an animal in the picture, draw a few zig-zagging tufts of hair. This same technique can be used to add texture to grassy surfaces.

    • 3). Draw wrinkles in the cartoon subject's clothing. Add a few squiggly wrinkles around the armpits, sleeves and bottom of the character's clothing.

    • 4). Add any additional texture that your cartoon needs. Although the additional texture depends on the subject matter of your cartoon, follow this rule as you continue to add different textures: do not completely cover your cartoon characters with texture but use "selective texture" to indicate to the viewer that the texture exists over the character's entire body. Add texture in places where the character's body would fall into shadow. Use a reference picture, if necessary, to guide you through this process.
