a nice palm tree made from basic shapes

Only six easy steps are required to illustrate this cartoon palm tree properly. The trunk is made from a long triangular shape (drawn with round corners) and the leaves are represented by curved lines. Some fruits are also visible below the leaves and they are drawn using small circles.

A simple texture made from thin lines is also added on the trunk. Overall, this is a very easy lesson to complete. Don't hesitate to try more versions using various shapes, different textures and even shadows or highlights. You can also create the same palm tree without strokes and outlines. Possibilities are endless!

A colorful rainbow filled with simple effects

This is probably the easiest tutorial to draw accurately. After all, you just need to draw a bunch of curved lines and two small clouds to complete this lesson. Unfortunately, this lesson is not just about sketching simple shapes and lines. It's also about adding digital effects to create a more complex illustration.

In the third step, colors are added inside the subject. The fourth step consists of adding color gradients to give more volume to the rainbow. Notice how the back is brighter in the middle. In the last step, subtle shadows are added below the clouds and a nice reflection is drawn on the rainbow itself.

a scary tornado with a funny facial expression!

Drawing a tornado can be a boring task. It's not the case when this tornado is featuring a crazy and amusing facial expression. First, simply draw the shape of the tornado using curved lines. The eyes and the mouth are drawn using basic shapes made from large strokes.

Inside the tornado, simply draw a variety of dark and bright lines. The left part of the subject can also be filled with a brighter color. Complete this tutorial by sketching small lines around the tornado (to illustrate the movement) and a little bit of dust on the bottom of the picture.
