This tutorial will help you draw a simple cartoon cheese! Very often, in comic strips or cartoons shown on television, cheese is portrayed and drawn like a Swiss one.
Why? I don't know! Maybe because it's easier to recognize with all the holes. After all, without these holes, a cheese draw in a comic strip would probably look like a piece of soap! So let's follow the old recipe and let's start our tutorial on how to draw a... Swiss cheese!
First, draw a triangle to form the top of your piece of cheese. In this drawing, I decided to incline the object for a better view. When you are finished, add a rectangle on the side to give some depth to our illustration.
Notice that the right side of the rectangle is leaning towards the left while the left side is leaning towards the right. It is important to do so to keep a nice and clean perspective.
Now that both basic shapes are drawn, refine the outline of your cheese to make it more accurate. Notice that the top of your drawing should be round and curved. We are presuming that this piece of food was sliced from a bigger and rounder piece of cheese.
When you are done refining the outline, add some holes on the edges of your artwork.
Then, do the same (adding some holes) to the body of your object. But don't sketch too many holes. It could be more distracting than effective if you do so!
Finally, for a better looking piece of cheese, add some shadows in each of your holes.
Adding colors might help you see the final effect. The holes are looking great if you managed to place shadows in the right orientation. So there you have it! A nice and clean piece of Swiss cheese! Have fun!
