Is drawing human characters too complicated?

Drawing people, even with the cartoon eyes, can be incredibly daunting and what can you do instead? 

Go with drawing animals. Drawing cartoon animals is easier than drawing cartoon humans. 

An added bonus is that cartoon animals can be extremely cute and humorous and readers can make the drawing more relatable if it has the animals in them as compared to the humans.
