Design your own Cartoon Character

Having your own cartoon character rocks, but how do you design one? There are some powerful methods you can use and we’ll explore them here.

Professional Cartoon Character Design

First up, you can hire a professional to design your own cartoon character. That’s what we do and we do it well. It’s not the cheapest option but it does yield the best results. We’ve created hundreds of characters for clients all around the world so without sounding like we’re tooting our own trumpet, you could confidently say we know what we’re doing when it comes to cartoon character design.


Next, you can Google search “design your own cartoon character” and see what you come up with. There are services which allow you to upload a photo of yourself and will create your own cartoon character. The results vary a great deal and the quality verges from poor to OK and often lack any real artistic punch. With that said, this is a good option if you are on a tight or non-existent budget. This type of service is best for caritcatures of people yet pretty much useless if you want a custom cartoon character like an alien, animal, monster or any non-human.
