Learning how to draw a vacuum can easily be done within a few steps using this accessible lesson. I will show you a few simple tips to illustrate this important object using mostly basic shapes and colors. Of course, various models are available so these tips are relevant for this model only.
You can definitely use some of these tips to create different vacuums. The one displayed on this page is a fictional model. That's the beauty of drawing! You can draw anything you want. Let's see how we can sketch and draw a beautiful cartoon vacuum quickly using this lesson now. :)
First, let's draw the main part of the object using simple lines. The top of the vacuum is made from two straight lines. The bottom part can be drawn using two long curved lines. Next, sketch both casters using thin rectangles with round corners. A long curved lines is used to join both casters.
Now that the silhouette of the cartoon vacuum is completed, let's draw the hose using more simple lines. On top of the vacuum, a few simple parts are added. Then, the hose is sketched using basic curved lines. Once the hose is drawn, you can add the first section of the tube using a perfect rectangle.
On the bottom of the tube, you can draw the second section using one small rectangle and a longer one. Near the bottom of the illustration, sketch the powerhead and the floor brush. Great work! This lesson on how to draw a vacuum is progressing nicely. The whole silhouette of the object is now completed.
In this step, let's add more details inside the main part of the object. First, a small rectangle is added on both sides of the casters. Another thin line is also added below the vacuum to join both casters together.
On the body of the object, a cover made from four curved lines is drawn. Below this new element, a small circular shape is also added.
Inside the tube, draw several small lines as shown in the illustration below. More simple lines are created inside both casters. Finally, subtle lines are added on the body of the vacuum. Excellent! We are done sketching this object. Let's proceed with the next step ...
A cute illustration like this one needs to have tons of fun colors to be more appealing. For this tutorial, a simple blue color is drawn on the object. The cover is filled with a lighter version of the same color. The rest of the object is colored in gray. A light color is used for the tube. The hose and the wheels are slightly darker. Finally, a much darker color is required inside all remaining parts.
This image of a vacuum is nice, but we can make it visually more interesting by drawing basic shadows. As you can see on the illustration below, shadows are added on most parts of the image. A simple reflection is even added on the cover.
Congratulations! This basic lesson on how to draw a vacuum in just a few basic steps is now completed. Like I said earlier, don't hesitate to use these tips and techniques to create your own models. You can also try various angles, perspectives or add more details and textures.
Below is a simple picture featuring all steps needed to draw this fun object. Feel free to use this fun illustration as a reference.
Now that we are done with this basic lesson, you are invited to try more fun objects related to home. Don't forget to practice on a daily basis. That's the key to becoming better at drawing quickly and easily. Enjoy! :)
