How to Draw A Cartoon Telephone



In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a cartoon telephone! Now that cellphones are so popular and almost affordable (if you use it wisely, of course!) the old wired phone might become a piece of history pretty soon. 

They are still useful for many reasons (more secure and available in more places than the cellphone). So let's see how you could draw a nice and clean telephone in this new tutorial.

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon telephone

First, sketch an oval shape to illustrate the handset. Add a rectangle like shown above to form the base of the phone.

Step 2

Next, add a little depth to the base of the phone. Just sketch two thin rectangles on the right and bottom side of your base.

Step 3

Refine the outline of the handset. It should look a little bit like a bone. Except the left part of the handset is drawn using a straight line (while the right part does have a light curve in it).

Step 4

Time to add the buttons and the LCD screen! Make sure your new shapes are drawn using the same perspective as the base itself!

Step 5

Add some details like the phone cord and a shadow below the handset. You can also add a light shadow on the right part of the handset. Look at the next image of this tutorial if you are not sure how to achieve this.

Step 6

Now color your telephone using various grey tones. The LCD screen can be colored with a light blue color. Now you are able to see the little shadows over the handset and under it.

Step 7
