How to Draw a Cartoon Strawberry

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

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.

Line time!



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! :-)
