Drawing a cartoon train: some fun facts before starting sketching!
This tutorial will help you learn how to draw a cartoon train using some very basic shapes. The train is made of the locomotive (2) that is pulling the wagons (3). The train is moving on rails (4).
This toy train is based on an old model that uses steam as the main source of energy. But today, trains are using electricity or diesel to help them reach some very impressive speed!
The shape of our train is mostly made of rectangles and squares. The wheels are made using circles. Only the chimney is made using a triangle. Like you can see, this train is not very complicated to draw since all shapes are basic and unaltered.
It's more a matter of placing them on the right spot using accurate proportions. Now that's a real challenge!
Let's try to draw the most basic train possible! First, draw two rectangles to form the body of the locomotive. Then, you can add the wheels by sketching two small circles in front and a bigger one on the back.
Next, you can work more on the body of the locomotive by drawing a window and by adding a roof using rectangles. You can also join the two wheels in front by adding a small rectangle.
Finally, add the chimney (and all the details on top of the locomotive). You can also add colors to make the whole thing more visually attractive!
This tutorial just help you learn how to draw a simple old train using some very basic shapes. But you can also sketch a train using a different perspective (3) or one using some new technology (1). Just use your creativity and have fun!
