This simple drawing lesson will show you how to draw a cartoon balloon! Hot air balloons are a fun alternative for those who likes to fly in the sky! This slow and quiet flying object might seem fragile and dangerous. 

But don't worry! Today's balloons are built with tough fabrics and are able to fly for a certain amount of time! Let's see how we could draw a nice hot air balloon in eight easy steps!

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon balloon

First, draw a nice oval shape to create the top of the balloon. Then, draw a rectangle under the oval shape. Make sure that this new shape is narrower on the bottom.

Step 2

Near the opening of the balloon, draw two rectangles to illustrate the burner. The rectangle on the bottom should be smaller and thinner.

Step 3

For the basket, just sketch a square with the top being larger. The top of the basket should be the same width as the opening of the balloon.

Step 4

Refine the outline of your balloon. Don't worry if your shape is not quite the same as mine. Balloons can come in various shapes (like animals or objects) so even if your balloon if not perfectly oval, it still looks realistic!

Step 5
