Squares, rectangles and circles are needed to learn how to draw a robot that does look like a realistic machine! Indeed, drawing a cartoon robot is an easy task if you already know how to draw a few basic shapes. However, drawing a "cool" robot is more difficult if you don't have much experience with cartoon characters. Using this drawing lesson, I will show you how beginners can achieve something great using only a few simple techniques. Let's start now!
First, you can start working on your character using the simple step-by-step video lesson found below. Once you are done, you can learn more about this character by following all steps described below. :)
Cool! Let's begin this drawing lesson with the creation of a large oval shape to illustrate the head. Below the head, draw a tiny rectangle to form the neck. Finally, draw a small square to illustrate the body.
Below the body, sketch two small rectangles to represent the legs. The feet are made from circular shapes cut in half. See the illustration below if you need an image to help you figure out how to create this part of the tutorial.
On the head of the robot, draw a small antenna using a thin rectangle and a small circle. The arms are made with long curved lines and the hands are created from small circular shapes with a missing piece (well, just like a pie with a slice missing might look like).
Inside the body, you can add some elements like a circle and a rectangle. The eyes and the pupils are made from large circular shapes. The mouth is illustrated with several small rectangles.
Complete this drawing tutorial by adding small oval shapes inside the pupils. You can also add more details on the body of the cartoon robot like shown in the illustration below.
As you can see, this cartoon robot is entirely made from basic elements making it easy to draw and duplicate. You can create your own robot by drawing all the basic shapes and elements you want to!
This cartoon robot is definitely the easiest one to draw on this site. You can see all steps required to illustrate this one properly grouped into a single illustration below. It's a good exercise to help you create perfect circles, oval shapes, rectangles, squares and triangles.
I hope you had fun learning how to draw a robot like this one. Don't worry! You can continue sketching and drawing cool robots using all these lessons below. Most of these characters are also built from simple shapes like circles and rectangles. Have fun creating!
