Cartoon character with a big head

Have you ever wanted a cartoon character with a big head drawn for a project?  Well, there are a number of ways to go about either drawing the caricature yourself or you could find someone to assist you with the drawing.

Use Photoshop to draw a cartoon character

There are many videos on Youtube on how to create custom drawings of cartoon character on Photoshop.

Cons

  • very time consuming if you do not have the necessary skills
  • you need a computer with a Photoshop license or subscription
  • difficult if you do not have a creative bone in your body

Pros

  • you will learn a life skill
  • you have the most control over the final product
  • you can create multiple other cartoon characters or publications
  • you can easily customize the cartoon character

Draw a cartoon character by hand

It will take time and effort, as with any new skill, to at first learn how to draw a cartoon character by hand, but it can be so much more rewarding once the skill has be learnt. Just look at how easy RowserWorld makes it look on his video.

Cons

  • very time consuming if you do not have the necessary skills
  • difficult if you do not have a creative bone in your body
  • you cannot easily reproduce or amend the cartoon character

Pros

  • you will learn a life skill
  • very rewarding to see your cartooncharacters come to life
  • you have more control over the final product

Make use of a service to draw a cartoon character with a big head

One service which I have made use of recently was by akartdesign on Fiverr.com. I submitted my request in the evening and by the next morning my cartoon character with a big head was ready for my review. First time round. Amazing!!!

So instead of spending many hours in front of a computer screen trying to work it our for myself, I got this once off task done in record time.  akartdesign was very courteous, professional and went the extra mile to the cartoon character just right.

Cons

  • you cannot easily reproduce or amend the cartoon character
  • you have to pay extra for the source file if you want to amend it afterwards yourself
  • you might not have learned a new skill, so cannot create your own cartoon characters
  • there is a reoccurring cost to amend or produce similar cartoon characters

Pros

  • no skills needed
  • you have a level of control over the final product
  • saves you time
  • no need for a computer or additional software costs.

The final decision on which approach to take is therefore determined by the amount of time, effort or money you are willing to spend on your cartoon character.  If it is a once-off need then the recommendation is to go with a paid server like akartdesign on Fiverr.com. If on the other hand you want to learn a new skill or develop a business then it would be more advisable to either learn how to use Photoshop or to draw by hand.
