Drawing cartoon houses: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • Almost 99% of the dirt in a house comes from the outside. 
  • In the US, the average size for a house (for a family of four members) is about 2000 square feet.

Step 1

How to Draw Cartoon Houses

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!

Step 2

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.

Step 3

How to Draw Cartoon Houses

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.

Step 4

How to Draw Cartoon Houses

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! :)
