Once of the great things about drawing cartoons is that they can introduce young artists into the idea of one shape being in front of another.

This super silly and simple bird is slightly turned, so his one wing is showing more than the other, and overlaps his body and tail. That doesn’t always happen when you draw things straight on. It’s one of the first lessons to learn how to add dimension to art, so being able to see that, and erase extra lines accordingly.
