Warning: This is the most amazing drawing idea in the world, but...

you will not discover how to draw something amazing!

First, find scrap paper to draw on.  Use the backs of any papers that are going to be thrown out.  

DO  NOT DRAW ON NICE PAPER!
  
CRAZY DRAWING IDEA #1

This is important, tell yourself that you are going to throw your drawing away.  I know this sounds crazy, but no matter how good it is, no matter how much you love it, you must throw it away.

Start by drawing some circle eyes.

Next, draw a nose.

Next, draw a head.
Next, draw a body.  

Next, add details.

Spend time with your drawing.  When you think you are finished drawing, spend 5 more minutes adding stuff to your drawing.  Keep drawing until there is no white.  Fight the white.  When you think that drawing is done, spend 5 more minutes drawing even more.  

Now, look at your drawing and pick your favorite thing about it.

Start a new drawing by drawing your favorite thing from the old drawing, maybe its the eyes or the nose or the ears or the shape of the body.

Keep the things you like and change every thing else.  If you like the head, try it on 20 other different bodies.  If you like the body, try 20 different heads.
Whatever makes you smile about your drawing, whatever it is that you "discovered"  draw that again and change everything else.

Repeat the steps above.

If you follow these drawing ideas, I promise you will create an AWESOME character.
