How to Draw A Cartoon Plant – Let’s get Started!
We will start this guide on how to draw a cartoon plant not with the plant itself but rather the pot that it is sitting in.
This has two sections to it, and the first is the rim of the pot. This can be drawn using two curved lines that connect to one another.
There will be an empty space at the top of this rim where the plant will poke out, but we will take care of that later.
Then, we will draw the base of the pot. This will have a vaguely squared shape to it, but the corners will be slightly rounded. That’s all for then pot, and then we can continue!
Step 2 – Next, start drawing the plant
You’ll see in the later images of this guide that we are drawing a type of cactus plant in this guide. With that in mind, we will begin to add the cactus in this step of your cartoon plant drawing.
The cactus will be made up of some simple shapes, but before we add it we will add another curved line to the rim of the pot.
Then, we will start adding the plant itself. You can do this by drawing a simple round shape above the rim.
Finish off this step by drawing two small lines poking off of it for the first of the little spines of the cactus.
Step 3 – Now, draw the next section of the cactus
Now, we can continue building this cactus up. To do this, simply draw another large, rounded shape next to the first one.
This one will also have some little spines poking off of it to begin making the cactus look suitably prickly.
That’s all for now, and then we can move on!
Step 4 – Next, draw another section of the cactus
You’re getting the hang of this now! We will be adding another part of the cactus in this fourth step of the guide.
Once again, this means drawing a large rounded shape, and this time it will go above the other two.
As with those ones, we will also draw some small straight lines poking off of it. Then, you will be ready for step 5 of the guide!
Step 5 – Now, draw the flower for this plant
A cactus may be known for its prickly exterior, but they will often have a pretty flower attached to them as well.
That is what we will be drawing in this step of our guide on how to draw a cartoon plant!
This should be a simple aspect to add, as we will be drawing four rounded lines attached to one another as they appear in the reference image.
Add two small lines at the base of the flower, and then you’re done with this step!
Step 6 – Next, draw some lines onto the cactus
We will begin adding some texture lines onto your cartoon plant drawing in this step. Each ball of the cactus will have these detail lines drawn onto them, and they should be simple to add.
All you need to do is draw some slightly curved lines onto each section of the plant.
The example image will show you how this should look, and then we will be ready for the final touches in the next step of the guide!
Step 7 – Finish off the face of the plant
Earlier, we mentioned that this plant would have a bit of a fun twist to it, and we will add that in this step!
We will be drawing a face onto the pot of this plant in this step, and we will begin with two black ovals.
Each one will have two small white circles inside to show the shining reflections. There will also be a small curved line at the base of each one.
Then, use a horizontal curved line for the smiling mouth beneath the eyes. Once these facial details are drawn, will you add any extra details of your own?
Step 8 – Now finish it off with some color
Now it’s time to have some fun adding some colors to this cartoon plant drawing!
In our reference image, we used various shades of brown for the plant, and these shades help to show shading as well.
Then, we used different shades of greens for the cactus and finished off with some lovely pink for the flower.
These are some colors you could use, but you should definitely feel free to use any other colors of your own that you may like!
There are so many possibilities to try, so what do you think you will go for?
