How to Draw a Cartoon Cell

***tier-3-top.shtml*** Cartoon Cell

In drawing this simple cartoon cell - keep in mind that this is an extremely generic and easy approach to doing so. Everything is simplified to look as it would in a basic diagram. Use your imagination to take things a step further with respect to all the inner parts (organelles) - which compose it.

Colors too by the way... come up with your own unique scheme.

Let's draw!
