How to Draw A Cartoon Brain



This tutorial will show you how to draw a cartoon brain! Perhaps the most important part of the human body, the brain is still a great mystery for every scientist of the world. 

It is so complex that even in 300 years, chances are that it will remain a great enigma to mankind. Fortunately, drawing a nice looking brain is not as complex as this body part itself! Let's start this tutorial right now! You can begin with the video version below. The written tutorial can be found after the video.



Step 1

How to draw a cartoon brain

First, draw a large circle to illustrate the cerebellum. Don't worry, it is much smaller in real life. But I've decided to create a bigger one in this tutorial to make our illustration clearer and easier to read (That's the beauty of cartoons! You can do whatever you want!).

Step 2

Next, sketch two rectangles to form each side of the brain. Notice that the top is narrower and slightly incline towards the inside the drawing.

Now try to refine the outline of your brain. Make the bottom flat and the top more pointed (but not too much, just a little).

Step 4

Add some lines inside the brain to create the illusion of paths. Use some short and curved lines over longer and straight ones.

Step 5

You can add some shadows (displayed in grey here) to give more appeal to your artwork!

Step 6

Just add some colors (a skin tone will be fine) and you are done! Drawing a nice looking brain isn't too difficult! You just need to create a nice outline and add some curved lines inside each side for a killer effect!

If you feel like it, you can also try to draw the vertebral column under your brain! That could be a nice subject for a future lesson! Enjoy!
