Cartoon drawing is a fun hobby. It is inexpensive to get started with cartoon drawing and if you are ready to put even some half-hearted effort, you can pretty easily pick some tricks to amaze your friends and family members.
But if you really want to create professional level cartoon artworks you will need to be ready to do some real hard work. It will be best if you can get some mentor to guide you. Because however motivated you are at times your level of frustration will cross bearable limit and then you will feel like discontinuing all your improvement efforts. At those points of times your mentor or your guru can get you out of the rut. 4anime
One point is noteworthy here: your mentor need to be a subject matter expert. That is to say that he or she does not have to be a cartooning pro. Because cartooning tips and lessons you can get from books, courses and art colleges.
What exactly you want from your mentor is mental fuel so that you can continue to put your best effort to develop your own style and language of cartooning. As you may or may not be aware what it actually demands is a huge level of commitment and discipline, which is not very commonplace among us mortals.
So my advice to the beginners who dream to make it real big in the amazing world of cartooning (and let me tell it is possible to make it big) would be get someone who will help to go ahead in your chosen direction by supplying mental fuel. If he or she is your cartoon instructor then you are lucky.
