This lesson – drawing a simple cartoon carrot… is very easy. And I did this on purpose, keeping things nice and generic – basic so that you can use the lesson as a benchmark for a carrot of your own unique creation.
Actually, this is the same with many of the lessons on the site. I’ll purposely omit ‘over detailing’ or over emphasizing things – letting you get the general ‘gist’ of whatever it is your drawing is supposed to look like.
On to the carrot!
First Step – A Carrot IS Two Triangles!
Yes – getting right down to the ‘simple shapes’ of things… that’s really all this vegetable is – two simple triangles. You can experiment with different ideas here (shape, size, curvature… etc.) – but in the end… that’s what we’ve got! 🙂
To draw a carrot…
Actually, this is kind of a skinny one. You might do better widening it out a bit. A bit more tempting for a rabbit this way.
And now we’re drawing…
Second Step – How to Draw a Cartoon Carrot
Sequence taken into account, I’ve placed things according to the overlapping of various parts. Don’t get me wrong… a good eraser is nice for lifting lightly sketched pencil strokes here and there… but once you start recognizing patterns of objects, things, etc. — it’s just like learning a musical instrument.
You’ll just draw it without even thinking!! 🙂
Given a nice reference image – I bet you can really do wonders with this cartoon drawing. Details, shape, leaves… there are tons of ways to make this vegetable all the more unique.
As always – that’s what it’s all about!
