How to Draw a Cartoon Carrot
This lesson - drawing a simple cartoon carrot... is very easy. And I did this on purpose, keeping things nice and generic - basic so that you can use the lesson as a benchmark for a carrot of your own unique creation.
Actually, this is the same with many of the lessons on the site. I'll purposely omit 'over detailing' or over emphasizing things - letting you get the general 'gist' of whatever it is your drawing is supposed to look like.
On to the carrot!
First Step - A Carrot IS Two Triangles!
Yes - getting right down to the 'simple shapes' of things... that's really all this vegetable is - two simple triangles. You can experiment with different ideas here (shape, size, curvature... etc.) - but in the end... that's what we've got! :-)
To draw a carrot...
Actually, this is kind of a skinny one. You might do better widening it out a bit. A bit more tempting for a rabbit this way.
And now we're drawing...
Second Step - How to Draw a Cartoon Carrot
Sequence taken into account, I've placed things according to the overlapping of various parts. Don't get me wrong... a good eraser is nice for lifting lightly sketched pencil strokes here and there... but once you start recognizing patterns of objects, things, etc. --- it's just like learning a musical instrument.
You'll just draw it without even thinking!! :-)
Given a nice reference image - I bet you can really do wonders with this cartoon drawing. Details, shape, leaves... there are tons of ways to make this vegetable all the more unique.
As always - that's what it's all about!
