How to draw a cartoon tomato
This tutorial will help you draw a cartoon tomato that won't look like an apple or a peach (because after all, you want to draw a nice and red tomato!). Did you know that the tomato is the most nutritive vegetable of all? Even before spinach or broccoli!
I was surprised and glad to ear this fact (cause I'm not a big fan of broccoli... sorry!). So how could you draw a nice tomato that will look like one? Just follow these six easy steps!
First, draw a nice oval shape. Shouldn't be quite round, but not too oval either. If you are afraid that your tomato might look too crushed, just draw a circle!
When you are done sketching your circle (or oval), add some lines on top of the tomato to illustrate the small leaves.
Then, work on your leaves to give them a little more weight and volume. Notice the small branch on top that isn't part of the leaves. This step is crucial. Simply because those leaves (and the way they are drawn) are the only things that will differentiate your tomato from an apple. So make sure you sketch them right!
Work a little bit on the outline of your tomato. The top of your vegetable should look like a heart shape (but it has to be subtle).
Add some lines to give some highlights and shadows to your tomato.
And yes! This tutorial is already over! You now have a nice tomato (that should look like one!) drawn in only six easy steps! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Have fun!
