This tutorial will help you learn to draw a cartoon plate! Drawing a plate can be quite easy. Just draw an oval shape and you are done! But if you wish to add more realism to your image? How could you achieve that? Simple! By following this simple tutorial right now!
First, draw an oval shape like shown above.
Then, draw another oval shape inside the first one. Notice that this new shape is closer to the first one on top. You should leave more space between the two shapes on bottom. The reason is simple. The perspective of your drawing will look more accurate that way!
Next, draw two more oval shape inside the plate. The first one should be touching the oval shape you draw in step 2. The second one should be smaller and in the middle of the plate.
Finally, add a small curve under the plate to give it some depth.
And now the colors! The outside of the plate should be darker since the light is above the object. The shape you draw inside the plate will be used to create shadows. You drawing will look more convincing that way! I hope you had fun following this simple tutorial! Thanks!
