This tutorial will help you learn to draw a cartoon ladder! Drawing a ladder might be a very simple exercise. And you are right! But I will show you some easy tips to give a subtle perspective to your artwork. Just grab a piece of paper and a pencil and let's start drawing a simple ladder right now!
First, draw two long but thin rectangles to form the rails of the ladder. You can inlcine your shapes a little for more realism!
Next, draw your first step. Don't draw it too near from the top otherwise your ladder won't look too realistic and accurate!
When you are finished, draw the other steps. If you are able to keep the same distance between each of them, that would be nice!
For a better looking cartoon image, refine all your rectangles into rounder shapes. Also, notice the all steps are touching the middle of the left rail. But on the right, the rail is hiding all steps. This is an easy trick to give a subtle 3d perspective to your image!
Finally, add some colors to your ladder! And yes, you are done! Drawing a ladder is really easy and I hope you had fun sketching this everyday object with me!
