sketching a simple template to begin with

The first thing we can do before working on our subject is to create a template made from basic shapes. Once this is done, it will be easier to draw the silhouette of the bag. To illustrate this bag properly, let's start by drawing a large rectangle on top. Below the first shape, you can draw another rectangle, but this one must be thinner and narrower. Finally, add a large circle below both rectangles.

representing money using more rectangles

Since it can be a good idea to also learn how to draw dollar bills, then adding one more rectangle is needed. This new shape is located on the right of the bag as shown in the illustration below. The object is floating in the air since both objects at not integrated into the same image. They just coexist so that we can learn how to draw them both.

polishing the silhouette of the bag

Now that we are done drawing basic shapes to create a fun template, let's work on the silhouette of all these elements. First, you can polish the silhouette of the cartoon bag using a long irregular line. This line must be rounder on both sides, but flat near the bottom. You can see the current addition below (represented by a temporary red outline).

adding more details to the illustration

Now that the main part of the bag is created, let's focus on the top using more irregular lines. The opening of the bag is close, so it's important to add a small rope (represented by the smaller rectangle drawn earlier. You can see how to illustrate this part of the bag below.

Like most cartoon images, it can also be a good idea to help the viewer know the exact content of the bag. To do so, simply add a large dollar sign on this one. Great! This lesson on how to draw cartoon money is progressing nicely. :)

drawing more and more money

If you want to add a simple touch of realism to the image, then you can sketch basic shadows on the bag. These shadows are drawn using more irregular lines. For the dollar bills, you can add more rectangles on the back of the original one. You can also add dollar signs on the bills as well as a simple circle to complete this step.

working with colors to complete the cartoon money

Now that all objects are created, it's time to add plain colors to the illustration. For the bag, you can use a subtle beige color. The rope can be brown. Shadows on the bag must be slightly darker. Of course, dollar bills are colored in green. The circular shape inside the bills can be darker. Nice work! We are done with this tutorial.
