For a more cartoony style, I tend to see people give them bigger than normal eyes and/or more human like facial expressions

Try to exaggerate your expressions. Look at cartoons like Ren and Stimpy. I think that helps.

What do you want to draw? Bodies? Faces? Remember it's always good to use references.
