Drawing a Cartoon Dad, Retro Style - Video Tutorial

As some of you already know, I've started a series of video tutorials on YouTube, and here is one of my first!

If you enjoy the video, please Like it, and I always love to read your comments too.

The retro cartoon dad is one of the most iconic character types that has stood the test of time. This video shows you how a few small details can turn a drawing of regular guy into a completely clueless, cartoon mainstay. Floating the eyes inside the glasses while raising the eyebrows above the frames gives the character a perplexed and confused expression. While the flat hair and tie help to indicate that earnest appeal that all retro cartoon dads must have.
