I love drawing comics, they are my lively hood and I hope I can be one amidst all the logical careers I have to choose from. I know that drawing a person isn't good, but is okay if they are not realistic. The people would still include their eyes and noes and mouths, but I wouldn't give them tear ducts, or nostrils (depending on the panel) and I wouldn't show divisions in their teeth when I drew them (and its impossible to have one big tooth spanning your whole mouth so that's unrealistic right?). Also I draw "manga" which is the Japanese style of drawing comics where girls usually have unrealistically large eyes, and Guys have unrealistically long faces (and eyelashes are very undetailed). What I'm trying to say is, is it okay for me to draw comics if the people are unrealistic but not absurdly unrealistic? Thank you so much for taking your time to answer this!

As your question seems more about realistic/unrealist than about the drawing of living beings rights. I think realistic and unrealistic is the same. I can't see anywhere in hadeeths where there's a difference between both.

Simple logical rule:

If you consider halal drawing persons, unrealistic is allowed.
If you consider haram drawing persons, urealistic is forbidden.
