Drawing a cool-looking pair of cartoon sunglasses – a ‘Ray Ban’ sort of look – like the ones you see above… is easy if we first take into account, angle and structure. Actually, this lesson is a tad more advanced as I’ve gone for the 3/4 angle + tilt.
Anyway – use the steps here, and during the process… see what sort of neat spin you can put on it. Color, shape, style… etc.!
First Step – At an Angle… Here’s How We Can Approach It…
Drawn at an angle, this lesson is again – a bit more difficult. Still, in tackling this one – when it comes time to draw a pair as observed ‘straight on’… it’ll be that much easier to make happen.
Here’s how I went about it…
Angle and tilt taken into account – see how the left triangle is smaller – and even – squished! You’ll see this when I draw faces at 3/4 angles too. You might not notice it, but truly – making the eye that’s furthest away from the viewer, a bit smaller… helps to convey that YES – this character IS turned slightly to the right or left. Got it!? 🙂
To the steps!
Second Step – How to Draw Cartoon Sunglasses
The lenses are by far the trickiest part. Getting the shape down on the right side (your right) is easy. BUT – trying to match up the other side isn’t so easy. It might take you a few tries.
You’ll be able to better appreciate now – the simplicity in drawing them ‘straight on’. Keep trying though until you get a shape you like. Then – move forward.
Looking pretty stylish! The end result is actually pretty cool. The only thing I could have put a but more effort into – is the parts that go around the ears. Experiment with different styles and looks – and for sure… you’ll have something you like in no time.
And there you have it.
