How to Draw Cartoon Vegetables

Cartoon vegetables – similar to cartoon fruit, is another popular subject with respect to drawing simple cartoons.

Here, let’s tackle all sorts of different kinds – everything from carrots – to corn – to cucumbers! 🙂

And tomatoes!?

Well, it’s actually classified as a fruit.

But even still… I’ll put that lesson here along with mushrooms too – as both are often eaten alongside – or mixed within other vegetables.

Just like many lessons here on the site – these lessons will be simplified so you can most easily grasp and reproduce the subject in your own unique way.

A carrot for example – is simplified as two triangles.

Cartoon Vegetables

Can you visualize this?

Quite simply, the orange part – is a long skinny triangle, pointing downward…

And then, stacked right on top – is just that, "the top" – also taking on the shape of a downward pointing triangle.

Get into the habit of breaking things down in your head, BEFORE you go and sketch something out.

It’s incredible how literally anything and everything – yes, cartoon vegetables included…

Can be broken down into a simple arrangement of basic shapes.

And with that…

Let’s get drawing! 🙂
