This drawing lesson will help you draw a cartoon umbrella! It's raining outside. You don't want to get wet. What do you do? Stay inside? No way! Just take a solid umbrella and go play outside.
Sorry! But there is no reason to stay in front of the computer, even if it's raining like hell outside! OK. You might stay just to complete this drawing tutorial.
First, draw a long and thin oval shape. It will be used to create the bottom part of your umbrella. Next, draw a semi-circle on top of the first shape.
Next, draw a long and thin rectangle to illustrate the tube of your object. Add another small rectangle to form the handle of your umbrella.
Refine the outline of your umbrella by adding some curves on your oval shape. Notice that there is only three curves on the near side and six curves on the far side of the umbrella.
Work on the tube and the handle. Make sure that the top part of the tube is pointed and narrow.
Add some lines on the umbrella. They should all be starting from the top of the object.
Apply some colors and make sure that the inside of the umbrella is slightly darker than the outside.
If you wish, you can also apply some shadows to make your illustrations more enjoyable. That's it! You've just created a nice and clean umbrella in only seven easy steps! I hope you had fun drawing this object and don't hesitate to come back for more.
