The king cartoon is back! In the kingdom of illustrations, this cute cartoon character is now ready to be duplicated in the form of a drawing lesson! Indeed, this tutorial was created to help you learn how to draw a simple king filled with great colors and simple digital effects.

Just open your vector application, sketch a nice king and follow this easy step-by-step drawing lesson carefully! You'll see that creating a simple character using all tools available in your application is not as difficult as it might seem!

Important note: For each step available below, the first image represents the operation you must perform for this particular step. All changes are surrounded by a red outline.

On the second image, you will have the opportunity to see the result of this particular step.

Step 1

Are you ready? Great! Start this tutorial by drawing the king using the pencil tool (or any other tool that you are comfortable with). Then, color the character using plain colors. Don't worry, we will use special tools in the next step to add great shadows.

Step 2

The special tool that you can use is called the gradient fill. With this tool, you can add simple shadows to each part of the character by choosing two different tones of the same color. In this case, just make sure that you are using the darker colors on the bottom of each shape.

Step 3

Now that most parts are colored and filled with simple shadows, it's now time to add more shapes to represent additional effects like reflections. Just create four small circles and color these new shapes in white. Place them on the eyes and the pupils and use the transparency tool to enhance the gradient effect. The top part of these new shapes must be partially hidden.

Step 4

Great! Now create more shapes on the outfit, the head and the feet to illustrate strong shadows. Each new shape must be colored with the same color as the shape below, but use a darker tone to make this new shape visible. Once again, use transparency to hide the top part of these shapes.

Step 5

Repeat the same process below the crown, the hair, the head and above the arms. Our goal is to give more depth to the king cartoon and hopefully give a 3D appearance to the illustration. Guess what! This tutorial is now over! As you can see, it's now too difficult to create a nice character filled with volume and personality! Enjoy! :)
