In the past individuals needed to be at least somewhat artistically inclined to design a cartoon character, but nowadays that isn't the case. There are a wealth of websites available that allow users to design their own cartoon character from scratch with a variety of tools. These websites often allow users to choose eye shapes, facial expressions, hair cut and body structures. Creating a cartoon character online for free is an easy task that anyone can complete.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Go to a website such as SP-Studio, Meez, Portrait Illustration Maker, Simpsonize Me or WeeWorld. See the Resources section for some links to these sites and to decide what sort of cartoon you want to design. All of the websites work the same way when it comes to designing a cartoon character.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Create" button to begin designing your character.

  3. 3

    Click and choose body feature options for hat, eyes, mouth, hands, hair, skin and body. Within each feature option, scroll through the choices and select which one you like the best. For example, click on the "hat" option and find the type of hat that will suit your vision for the character. After you have chosen the hat, you will automatically be given different colour choices. Choose whatever colour you'd like. Repeat this step for all body feature options. After finishing this step in its entirety you will have the basis of your cartoon character.

  4. 4

    Click and choose the "Extra" options. Within this menu you can add glasses, weapons, animals, beards and even text. Continue with this step in the same manner that you completed the previous step.

  5. 5

    Click the "Save" button to save your cartoon character to your hard drive. You have now designed and created a cartoon character online for free.
