Tutorial 10 Roundness andDepth by shermcohen Tutorial 10 Roundness andDepth by shermcohen
#10 in a series of 12 tutorial sheets created for the SpongeBob crew in 2005 (4th season) on Roundness and Depth. If you treat your characters as dimensional objects that have weight and depth, your drawings will look more solid and believeable (no matter how cartoony they are).

Wonderful ! Thanks for making all of these tutorials ! I like to draw more realistic characters, but they have a very cartoonish air most of the time, so this helps !

Bravo! Unfortunately most cartoons today don't have roundness and depth, they look more like cardboard cut outs then actual characters.

Hi invader! Even though many shows are designed to look flat, you're right in that artists need to understand these principle before thay can break them.
