What is a cartoon portrait drawing?
A cartoon portrait drawing is, as the name suggests a portrait of someone, drawn or made in a style that turns the subject into a cartoon. They can look many different ways, depending on how they are made, since there are multiple methods available. Some yield clearly superior results than others, but as with most things, quality comes at a price.
How to draw cartoon portraits?
Probably the easiest way to make a cartoon portrait of yourself is to use an application that turns your image into something that vaguely resembles a drawing with the help of a filter. These suck most of the time though, everybody can tell that these are not real drawings. These also offer only the realistic approach when it comes to drawing styles, Overall very limited, with questionable-looking results, but at least it’s free. If you have to pay for it you’re better of with an upcoming alternative(not the generators)
How do they usually look like?
You can also find an online avatar generator type of deal, where you manually select the features that make up the human face. The shape and color of the eyes, eyelashes, mouth, nose, ears, etc. In these generators, there are usually a ton of hairstyles available, so at least they have that going for them, since the end result is pretty generic, and it barely resembles its creator. This option is extremely limited since you have a set number of choices available.
The resulting cartoon portraits have a general/blend look, so they kinda fit everybody.
Four signs you need a cartoon portrait drawing:
Does your social media pages look dull?
Does your social media page look like everyone else’s? Then this is the best time to change your profile picture. A cartoon avatar can spice your profile page, make it look more interesting, and grab the attention of people by standing out of the crowd of traditional photos.

In case you categorize yourself as someone who is not too photogenic a cartoon portrait drawing is a great option. I can count on one hand the number of times I said “yes, this is great!” to a photo taken of me, so I’ve been abusing cartoon portrait art for a long time. I like how much I can have different drawings of me, in different styles, always looking fresh, yet I’m still recognizable.
You need to create an image of a cheerful and creative person.
You like to try something new and look at yourself from a different perspective
How to draw a cartoon portrait of yourself? Why is it better to make a cartoon portrait of yourself via avatoon.net and be sure of a quality result?
By now it should be clear that the only real and meaningful way to create a cartoon portrait drawing is by leaving it to a professional artist. You can try making it yourself but if you can’t draw well you’ll end up with something silly at best.
The problem is when someone sells their drawing services without the proper training. Many “artists” have misleading portfolios, with works of other artists, which don’t represent their work or skill. A dead giveaway, that the person is not actually the author of the images they are showcasing is when the drawings are all in widely different styles, and subjects. During my search for a competent artist, I came across quite a few who had false advertising and delivered art that was not even close to the level they were showcasing.
At a website like avatoon.net, the results are guaranteed, with thousands of avatars already drawn, in a consistent style.
