I draw in a cartoon style, but I don't forget that cartoons are an abstraction. To do abstraction, you have to know the real thing. That's why I regularly draw from life and take reference photos of what I can't draw from memory. My sister and my brother's dog consented to be models. Let me just say that small dogs are very difficult to draw because they don't stay still! He did well, though, and I gave him a treat after.
