Let's see how you could draw a simple and nice cartoon pillow! Not everyone has the chance to sleep on a tight and comfortable pillow! They can turn an average night of sleep into a very good one!
Some even sleep with two pillows or more! Let's see how you could draw a simple pillow using a single shape (a rectangle) and a few lines!
First, draw the outline of the pillow using a basic rectangle. You can incline this shape like shown above to make your illustration more enjoyable!
Refine the outline of your pillow by drawing a smooth, but irregular line. Your shape should look comfortable and soft.
Draw the opening of the pillow using a thick shape (almost as thick as a simple line). Place this new line near the right of your pillow.
Add a couple of lines starting near the outline to show the folds of your object.
Finally, draw some shadows to give life to your pillow!
The shadows can be colored with a light grey tone.
If you wish, you can add a small and subtle shadow under the pillow to give a better look to your work! And there you have it! A nice and easy pillow drawn with a single shape in only seven easy steps! Have fun and feel free to experiment with colors, positions and dimensions!
