How to Draw A Cartoon Ham

This tutorial will help you draw a simple cartoon ham! Like many objects, vehicles or characters represented in the world of cartoons, ham is often depicted half in two with a bone drawn on the other hand. 

This is the typical illustration of a piece of ham. Since I'm humble enough to follow previous guidelines (but sometimes I like to add a little twist!), let's try to draw a ham in an old fashioned way!

Step 1

How to draw cartoon ham

First, draw an oval shape to represent the inside of the ham. Sketch this shape on the bottom left of your page to leave some room for the main part of the object.

Step 2

Next, add another circle around the first one to add some depth to your ham. Don't sketch it too far from the first circle! Then, when you are finished, draw a rectangle to illustrate the outside part of your ham. Notice that the top of the rectangle is narrower than the bottom.

Step 3

Finally, add a small rectangle and two circles like shown above to create the bone.

Now it's time to work on the outline of your illustration! Make sure that the rectangle and the biggest circle you draw previously are now joined together.

You can also refine your bone to make it look more accurate.

Step 6

Next, add some details inside the ham. Very often, a ham will have some smaller parts that are darker and different in shape. Notice that I've also sketched another circle inside the one that was remaining to add more depth to my piece of ham.

Step 7

Like shown above in red, you can draw some lines to create the texture of the outside of the ham. And like shown above in green, you can add some shadows to add more realism to your illustration.

Step 8

Experimenting is the key and when you do so, you are also practicing, which is always nice to do! Keep up the good work and enjoy!
