Drawing cartoon houses: some fun facts before starting sketching!
Before learning how to draw houses, let's see what elements we should not forget to make them a little more realistic! A house should have a roof (2), windows (3), a door and a solid foundation. If you want to, it can also have steps (4), a porch and a cornice. You can also add a chimney to make it more romantic!
This house is mainly made of rectangles. The walls, the windows, the door and the steps are all drawn using this basic shape! This drawing has a small perspective in it so you can enjoy a little bit more how this beauty was made.
In the example below, you will try to draw a more simple house using rectangles and triangles.
Let's start drawing by adding a rectangle for the front and a triangle for the roof. Continue by sketching a chimney. Draw more details to your roof by adding textures and more depth to it. Now draw a door, the windows and a porch. You can add colors to your work to make it look more enjoyable.
Drawing a simple house (2) is not so difficult. Drawing one with perspective is a little more challenging (4)! Don't forget that not everyone is living in a nice castle! A house can also be some pieces of woods put randomly together (5)! Once again, don't hesitate to use your imagination! A house can be whatever you want it to be (3)! If you want to try more houses or misc buildings, you can work on a simple castle, a cute church or a solid bank! Have fun! :)
