Here, let’s draw a simple, seedy cartoon strawberry. About a centerline – similar to the shape of a heart… I made this lesson especially easy for you. Have fun with it – and of course… see if you can change yours up.
To the drawing board…
First Step – Here’s the Structure for Your Strawberry
About a centerline, an oval is a good starting point – from which to put into place – the upper portion of the fruit. A circle would work too – but really… the oval helps to show the width of the upper part in relation to the tapering lower part.
Again – just like a heart!
Nice and easy – that’s all there is to it so far. Feel free to add some more details/planning here… might help you in the drawing part.
Second Step – How to Draw a Cartoon Strawberry
Helping to establish a ‘bit’ of a 3D effect… it’s a good idea to plan before you draw. For example, here in this lesson… you can see that the first leaf comes before the body of the fruit. In this way – yes – it’s got some depth to it!
Here are the steps…
Amazingly – whenever we have lessons easy like this one – they often result in only six simple steps. It’s not even planned this way… just how it works out!
Given the simplicity in number of steps here – it becomes clear why some of the more advanced lessons on the site (dragons!) – require many more. But really, it’s all about taking as many as necessary – to best illustrate the process to you, the drawer.
Til the next lesson! 🙂
