How to Draw A Cartoon House



In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a cartoon house using a simple perspective effect! To make things more interesting, I've also added two big eyes and a nice smile to this unusual character!

Don't be intimidated by the fact that perspective is involved in this drawing. To show you that an object doesn't need to have a perfect perspective to be interesting, I have voluntarily used lines and some vanishing points that are not 100% accurate!

Step 1

First, draw a couple of lines using imaginary vanishing points. If you feel more comfortable drawing those for real, just do it. As long as lines seems to go in the same direction even if no vanishing points are available, you should be fine!

Step 2

Then, draw the first shape of your character. Notice that I didn't draw any vertical lines to guide myself. Once again, I just draw lines using an imaginary vanishing point.

Step 3

Next, draw the roof of your house. Our character should be dynamic, so don't hesitate to exaggerate perspective and angles!

Step 4

Time to add some depth! It's now time to use the green lines to help you draw both shapes on the right side!

Step 5

You can now add both shapes on each side of the roof to close this shape. You can also add a chimney to fill the roof a little!

Step 6

Draw a couple of lines on the roof to create a simple texture and when you are done, sketch two circles to illustrate the eyes of your cartoon house!

Step 7

Finally, add some details like bricks, the mouth and the tongue of the character. You can also draw two small circles to form the pupils!

Step 8

Now you can play with colors and make this cute character even more enjoyable! I've decided to use colors that are nice, clean and not too colorful!

Step 9

If you have the chance to add some shadows or even a gradient effect to your house, then go ahead! Congratulations! You now have a funny house with a cute face ready to be used by some imaginary friends!
