Mummy Cartoon
(Advance Vector Tutorial)

Sponsored Links

In this drawing lesson, you will learn how to draw a cute mummy cartoon drawn with simple shapes and created using a vector application! This scary character was very popular in horror movies from the 60s and 70s. Of course, it's still a popular subject for horror movies, but maybe not as much as it used to be.

I will show you how to draw a mummy using lots of stripes, effects and colors. This tutorial is slightly more difficult than the others in this section, but it's still quite easy to follow if you already have some knowledge about vector drawing.

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

Let's move on with the first step. Use the drawing tools to create a plain character filled with white. Notice that I voluntarily forgot to draw the nose of the character. Once all lines are created, change the colors of the stripes using mostly a few yellow tones. It doesn't matter for now if all stripes are too similar.

Step 2

It's now time to use the gradient fill tool to add depth to the cartoon character. Select each stripes individually and use the gradient fill tool to make the bottom of each shape darker and the top brighter. Notice how the ears, the top of the arms and the legs are darker.

Step 3

Create a few circles to represent reflections. These circles can be colored in white and transparent on top. Each vector software handles transparency differently, so please make sure that you know how to achieve this effect.

Great! You can now create a large round patch behind each eye. Since the stripes are irregular, the shape of these new circles must also be slightly irregular. You can also add a large dark area below the neck and on the shoulders.

Step 5

Finally, you can create four strong shadows on the legs, the body and the feet. Each new shadow is made of several small shapes that are individually created using the transparency tool. Nice job! Our mummy cartoon is now very frightening, but it definitely looks great! :)
