As any health guru will tell you, the humble cabbage is a vegetable packed with protein, vitamins, and general goodness. While it is not typically top of anyone’s dream dinner, this is a food that nonetheless has earned respect – so let us give it the attention it deserves!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a gray pencil and a drawing compass, and create a large circle in the center of your page, just to the left of the midline.
Now, use the compass to draw two small circles inside the first – once again, these should be ever so slightly off-center.
Take a light green pen, and use this to create a section in the bottom right-hand corner of the circle with a wavy line. From this, bring another wavy line across to the left, to meet the edge of the circle.
Now, use the green pen to bring another wavy line from the right-hand point, back across in a triangular shape to create another section. From this, take a wavy line to the left, joining the other line in a point. You should now have four sections at the bottom.
Use the same green to add wavy lines around the top of the shape, creating two more sections…
And use a green pen to fill in three “bumps” across this top section.
Now, use a light green pen to divide the sections at the bottom using a straight line in the middle, with shorter lines coming off this at an angle. Leave the sections at the very top of the bottom blank for the moment.
Now, use the green pen to fill in the very bottom right-hand section.
Take a light green highlighter pen, and shade the section above the one you just filled in…
And use an eraser on the middle of the right-hand section to remove the pencil marks.
Now, use the light green highlighter pen to fill in the sections at the top of the bottom…
And once again, use an eraser to remove the pencil marks, except the two circles in the middle.
Fill in the top section with the light green highlighter pen…
And then use a pink pen to add small oval shapes underneath the circles in the center.
Using the light green pen, add a series of blotches to the right of these smaller circles.
Now, take a yellow pen, and fill in a section on the left-hand side.
Switch back to the light green pen, and outline the circles in the center – these will be the eyes. Make the lines slightly thicker on the outside edges.
Now use a black pen to add a small “u” shape between the pink marks…
And fill in the center of the eyes with pupils – leave a slight ring between the black and the green edges.
Next, use a yellow pen to fill in the rest of the face…
And an eraser to remove pencil marks on the eyes.
Now, select a light green pencil, and fill in the section of leaves at the bottom.
Take the black pen, and draw two curved lines – one pointing up and the other pointing down – on either side. On the ends of these, add another, short curved line, creating arms and hands!
Add two curved lines to the bottom, and flick these up at the ends to create feet.
Finally, use a gray pencil to add a small oval beneath the feet, and fill this in.
See how simple that was? Sadly, drawing your veggies is not quite enough – you will still have to eat them to reap the benefits…
