Learn how to draw a cartoon trampoline with a nice cartoon girl jumping on it! Unlike a decade ago, it is now possible to purchase a nice trampoline for a very affordable price and practice this cool sport at home.
However, it's always a good idea to install a safety net to prevent your kids from being injured while enjoying a few jumps on this simple object.
In this step-by-step tutorial, you will learn how to draw a very simple trampoline and a cute girl jumping on it. The object itself is not very difficult to draw, but drawing a cute girl in a perfect position might be more difficult to achieve.
Don't hesitate to draw your cartoon character is various positions. It's a nice and easy way to practice and draw more accurate characters. Ready? Let's start this lesson now ...
First, let's draw a few shapes to help us locate the character and the trampoline in space. It's also a good opportunity to work on proportions. You can start by drawing the head of the subject using an oval shape. You can also add the top of the trampoline to figure out the distance between both subjects. This can be adjusted later if it's not accurate enough.
Next, you can add more basic shapes to complete this cartoon girl. As you can see below, both arms are straight and made from thin rectangles. The body is also made from solid shapes and the breast are drawn using circles. Both legs are up (behind the subject) and feet are made from ovals. More shapes are needed below the trampoline to complete this step.
Now that we have a few basic shapes to help us, you can use these to sketch the silhouette of the cartoon girl. It's time to add details like fingers, a nice shirt and simple shorts. Once you are done drawing the character, you can erase all shapes drawn in the previous steps. We don't need these elements anymore.
On top of the head, you can draw hair using several short lines. The subject is jumping in the air, so try to match this posture with the movement of the hair. For the eyes, two large circles are required. Additional fingers can be drawn near the hands. On the shorts, another line is drawn to complete this part of the body.
Inside the head, draw a short line to form the nose. Below the nose, a longer line is sketched to represent the mouth. For the pupils, small dots are added inside the eyes. Tiny lines are also added inside the arms on the opposite side of the elbows.
You can also draw small lines on the bottom of the breasts to complete this part of the character. A small dot is needed for the belly button. Complete this step by adding more details inside both shoes. Nice work! We are done drawing this cartoon trampoline and the character jumping on it.
It's now time to add colors and transform a boring black and white image into something more appealing. First, pink colors are needed for the clothes. The hair can be blonde. A dark skin color is added on the girl. Finally, the trampoline is filled with gray and blue colors. Both pupils are blue.
If you have access to a vector application, then you can add gradients inside the illustration to create more volume. Shapes are now darker near the bottom and brighter on top. This is now mandatory, but it's a nice touch to add if you can do it with a vector software or manually using basic drawing tools.
