Many famous cartoon characters once started out as a bunch of shapes with no face or soul. There are many artists and cartoonists and illustrators and other people who would use simple shapes for this...

...anyway below is an image containing sets of shapes, use a few or all them as guides to come up with some cartoon characters of your own, then post them here. Feel free to post your own set of shapes, if you do this have at least 4 sets of shapes and make sure they are decent.

a; I dont like the title of this thread
b; I think this is backwards; isnt the idea that you have a character and you divide it into seperate shapes?

a; not everything has to be artistic, before you say "well, this is the art forum after all", perhaps he should have posted it somewhere else.
b; I replied to nathans post; so I`d prefer if nathan answered it rather than you.

Well, the idea of creating little peoples from shapes and trying to make them as creative as possible is pretty good, so I'll use it to break in my tablet every once in a while - probably once I get back on my computer. Nice shapes you've provided, anyway, they certainly do give up plenty of thinking space for interpretation.

I'll have a shot at this at one time or another.

I did ask of your opinion on what the title of the thread should be... it is pretty shitty though.
