Cartoon Candle Step by Step Drawing Lesson

Cartoon candle drawing

Ah yes… the perfect ‘elegant’ cartoon candle — that’s what we’re learning how to draw here. It’s the same type that usually has a little dish with a small circular handle off to the side. Add extra details as you see fit.

One part with the lesson that’s especially fun – is ‘curving in’ the melting wax around the top and bottom parts. I’ve omitted this until the very end – but incorporate these details in the process if you like.

Lighting it up…

First Step – Not Much at All to the Structure of Candle

About a perpendicular intersection – position a rectangle that will of course… serve as the base structure of what we’re drawing. It’s pretty straight-forward actually… nice and simple as it should be! 🙂

Here’s the framework…

OK then… we’ve not got a blueprint to work from. Looks good I’d say. Now let’s continue with the drawing portion…

Second Step – How to Draw a Cartoon Candle

Just like with the Birthday Cake lesson… we start the drawing in pretty much the same way with respect to our subject. Working from top to bottom – and again… adding that melted wax if you wish at the same time… let’s draw it.

Here are the steps…

You can immediately see – looking at the images above… that the melting wax really helps to make your drawing look that much better. Revisiting each step – you now have a nice visual for how you ‘could have’ approached it – the wax taken into account during the process earlier on.

You are done! 🙂
