Let's see how you could draw a cartoon cell phone! In this world loaded with technology, who doesn't already have a cell phone? Well, I don't! Perhaps it's the price (paying over 60$ a month for a phone seems a little high for me) or the fact that I don't really like being disturbed for no reason!
One thing is sure: For the moment, I just don't feel the need to have one! But I do recognize that cell phones are extremely useful (for an emergency situation, for example). And no doubt that they will become the most complete and affordable products of tomorrow! Until then, let's try to draw a cartoon one! :)
Update: Well, I do have one now (but it is quite basic and I only use it to call ... :)
First, draw two large rectangles like shown above. They should be really close to each other.
Next, sketch some more rectangles to create the screen and the buttons. Notice that the buttons on the first row are a little bigger than the others.
Next, refine the outline of your cell phone to make it rounder. Do the same for the buttons. You can also start sketching the stylus pen by drawing a long and thin rectangle with a smaller one on the bottom.
Work on the stylus again (to improve the outline) and add some shapes in the screen of the cell phone to create the background of the icons.
Add details like numbers on the buttons and icons on the screen. Also notice the two small lines on top and on bottom of the cell phone.
Time to color your phone. This object is really dark so don't hesitate to add some light shadows around the buttons and the phone itself.
If you wish, you can also add a nice reflection on the screen and some gradient effect on the icons. Et voila! You've just drawn a nice and futuristic cell phone in only seven easy steps! I hope you had a lot of fun drawing this cool object!
