I'm just starting to get into the idea of cartooning and comics as an artist, and I have a lot of practice doing portraits and still life but when it comes to cartooning I don't know where to start. I have a sort of mental idea of what I want my comics to look like but I can't seem to flesh it out on paper, especially the eyes. If anyone could give me some tips, or perhaps direct me to some good tutorials, it would be greatly appreciated.

For me Gester drawing helps. Portrait artist sometimes tend to look too much at detail. Where as cartooning, in my opinion is more loose and involves story telling. Also, reading Saturday newspaper comics do too.

Cartooning the Head and Figure by Jack Hamm is a good intro book to read.
It was my very first Drawing book I ever owned.

Oh, and just start drawing your comic. You'll get better as you go along.
