Everyone loves cute things! If anyone says that they are too tough to love cute things, they probably still do but just won’t admit it.
Cute things are all around us, from baby animals all around to various cartoon characters, mascots and products. Cute things are here to stay!
If you love cute things (which we all do,) then perhaps you would like to learn how you can draw some cute little characters of your own.
This step-by-step guide on how to draw cute things will show you how to easily draw some adorable new friends for you to get creative with!
How to Draw Cute Things – Let’s get Started!
This guide on how to draw cute things will walk you through how to draw some adorable ice cream things.
Luckily ice cream isn’t this cute in real life or it would be hard to eat them with a clear conscience!
For this first step, you can draw what will look a bit like an onion shape.
As it appears in the reference image, it will have a thick bottom section and then go up to meet at a thin, sharp point at the top.
Before you draw this and move on, be sure to look to the next step, as you will want to leave a tiny gap at the bottom right of the onion shape.
Step 2 – Next, draw a small protrusion on the shape
You’ll be glad you left a small space in your cute things drawing, as we will be drawing a small part coming off from the shape.
This step should be easy to do, as you need simply draw a small curve in the space that you left earlier.
Step 3 – Draw the cone for your drawing
There are a few great truths in life, and one of them is that ice cream needs a cone. Because of this, we shall add a cone in this step of our guide on how to draw cute things!
This should be a breeze for you to do. Normally when drawing straight lines I would recommend using a ruler, but in this case I would actually advise doing it freehand.
This image has a cartoony look to it, so having it look a bit more rough and curved will help to give your picture some character.
Step 4 – Next, draw some additional details
We will keep adding some details to your cute things drawing in this next step. First, you can draw a small curved line on the left-hand side of the ice cream to create a second little arm for it.
Then, draw some small circles near the tip of the ice cream to show some bubbles coming off for a fun effect.
Step 5 – Add some texture to the ice cream cone
In the final two steps of this guide on how to draw cute things, we will draw some texture to the cone of your ice cream.
This will simple for you to do, as you can simply draw some slightly curved lines going horizontally along the cone.
You could also add some dots or other marks to the cone if you would like even more details for the cone.
Step 6 – Draw a face for your picture
What makes something cute? There are many things it could be, but in the case of your cute things drawing, the face will be what gives it that cute factor!
A trick to making a face cute is to make the eyes nice and big. We shall make the eyes by drawing large black ovals with smaller white circles within them to show glinting.
You could make the eyes even bigger if you wanted! Then, you can give your drawing a sweet little mouth.
This will be done by using two small curved lines to form the mouth as it appears in the reference image.
Before you move on to the final step, there are a few more things that you can do to add to your drawing. As you can see in the final reference image, we drew a second little ice cream next to the main one.
This little one can be drawn using the same steps as before, but you could change a few of the details.
Perhaps you could change the mouth or eyes a bit to give it a different expression to the bigger ice cream!
What other fun little details can you think of that you would like to add to your cute things drawing?
Bonus: Make A Story Featuring These Cute Things!
You’re almost at the final step of this guide on how to draw cute things, but we had a fun idea to share with you before that. We thought that it would be fun to make a little story featuring these characters.
One way you could do this would be to draw a comic strip, and there are so many possibilities! First, you may need to practice drawing other variations of these characters.
This could include different facial features and expressions as well as the general posing of the characters. Once you have experimented with this, try to think of a setting.
This drawing of cute things shows two ice cream characters, so you could go with a theme that relates to that. It could be an ice cream shop or maybe a beach, basically any place you would expect to enjoy some ice cream.
It doesn’t have to be a place that relates to ice cream, but it can make it easier to think of a setting. Once you have your setting, try to think of a story involving these characters.
It can be something simple, and could be based on an experience you’ve had with friends or family. Then you can map out the comic with a pencil.
Draw some rough panels and sketches of your story, and then you can start drawing thr final characters. Finish off with some backgrounds, colors and any other ideas you have.
Then you have your very own comic to show off! If you have lots of fun drawing it, you could even do multiple pages of this comic. There are so many ways to make this totally unique.
Do you have any stories, settings and additional characters in mind?
Step 7 – Finish off your cute things drawing with some color
The final step of this guide on how to draw cute things is a fun one! You get to take over and show us how creative you can be in this step, as you can color in your amazing drawing.
A drawing like this gives you a lot of room to express your creativity.
You could really go crazy with your favorite bright and cheerful colors to go along with the theme of this image wonderfully.
Which fun art mediums will you choose for your drawing? I would use some acrylic paints or colored pens to give the colors some pop to them, but anything you use will create an incredible color look for your picture.
5 Tips To Make Your Cute Things Drawing Even Better!
Get ready to make this adorable drawing even better with these tips!
We created 2 adorable ice cream cones for this cute things drawing, but there are many more things you could add!
If you have other foods that you enjoy, then you could add them to the page and draw similar faces onto them.
You could really fill the page with these characters, and each one will make the image even cuter. Can you think of some fun characters to add?
Another way to improve this cute things sketch even more would be to draw a fun background. This would be especially great if you added some more characters as we suggested earlier.
You could create some really funny and quirky settings for these cute things to be in, and it will be fun to come up with them!
Even if you just stick with the cute things we designed in the guide, you can make them better by adding some details of your own.
These ones are made to look like ice cream, so you could add a cherry, some sprinkles or chocolate shavings for a few ideas. These extra details will also give you some opportunities for some interesting colors!
Since we’re speaking of colors, we would recommend really getting creative and having fun as you add some to this picture. We would also suggest trying out as many different art tools and mediums to really switch things up.
Don’t be shy about using crafts such as beads and stickers on this drawing of cute things as well! Adding these kinds of crafts can make the colors really pop.
You can also make this drawing better with the way you treat it after it’s done. For example, you could find a nice frame and put it inside to display it!
Or, you could draw a border around the picture if you’re not able to get a frame. The way you present an artwork can really make it even better, and can even turn it into a great gift to give someone.
