How to Draw Cartoon Elements


Earth! Wind! Fire! No... not the band. :-)

We're talking about the cartoon elements of the universe here and even better - how to draw them!

The earth, the sun, the moon, the clouds... this area of the site tackles all things 'elemental'.

Whether you anthropomorphize your cartoon elements like I've done in the example, or use them in their more simple form to enhance whatever drawing you're working on...

There's always a place for the elements in drawing.


Cartoon Elements

Take water for example.

How many different situations can you think of where knowing how to draw cartoon water would be helpful?

Rain, puddles, saliva - and pretty much anything else that's liquid!

Just different colors and textures to take into account.
