How to Draw Cartoon Trash

Learn how to draw cartoon trash in this easy step-by-step drawing lesson! Don't worry! This illustration is not sticky and it doesn't smell bad. All you need to do is pick up a marker and follow all the steps to create a nice pile of trash. Playing with garbage has never been so much fun.

First, create all the elements of the drawing by following the first six steps of the tutorial. All objects are drawn with simple basic shapes. Just look carefully for all fine elements like lines used to create shadows, basic shapes that are irregular and curved lines. Once this is done, the most difficult part of the picture is done.

Then, it's time to add some colors. Most of the illustration is colored in various tones of grey. A few elements are colored with misc colors. Don't hesitate to use your creativity. Anything can be found in a pile of trash. Just draw what you want and use all the colors you need to bring your drawing to life.

Finally, on the last illustration of the tutorial, you can apply a few basic effects like gradient fills, shadows and transparency. Of course, everything can be done with makers, but if you have access to a vector software, your job will be easier to achieve! Enjoy!
