They say that a picture tells a story, and for many of us, our photographs are amongst the most important possessions we own. Choosing a new camera is both a joy and a challenge – this will, after all, be the tool you use to capture your precious new memories. In the meantime, we will learn how to create our own cute cartoon camera!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a cyan pen, and use a ruler to draw a straight, horizontal line around an inch from the top of the page.
Add two small, vertical marks, one at either end of the line, leaving small gaps in the corners.
Now take a gray pencil and a drawing compass, and draw a large circle to the left of this line, in between the vertical marks.
Use the tools to draw another, slightly smaller circle, just inside the first.
Now take a black pen and your drawing compass, and go over the inside one you just drew in a solid, bold black. Next, add two smaller circles, again, one just inside the other, right in the center of your circles.
Use the black pen to fill in the space inside the smallest circle…
And, leaving the ring around this white, fill in the space next to this.
Use the black liner and a ruler to add two small rectangles just above the original line – these should be roughly on either side of the circles.
Use the black liner to fill in these rectangles, making them solid…
And then use the cyan pen and ruler to join the corners together with a curve. Then, connect the two vertical lines together with a straight, horizontal line running across the top of the circles – add a little “bump” over the top of the circle.
Take an orange pen and a ruler, and add a small rectangle to the left-hand edge of this top section.
Fill in the rectangle you just made with the orange shade…
And then use the cyan pen and ruler to add another, slightly larger, rectangle around the outside of the orange one.
Then, use the cyan pen to fill in the top section.
Take a blue pen and a drawing compass, and go over the top of the outside circle – end this line just above the bottom of the circle.
Use the blue pen and ruler to add two vertical lines, descending down from the ends of the cyan line, and join these at the bottom with a horizontal line.
Now, use the black pen and ruler to add a small rectangle to the top right hand edge of the camera…
And use the cyan pen and ruler to add another rectangle to the bottom of the shape.
Use the cyan pen to fill in this bottom section with the bright color…
And then use the blue pen and drawing compass to complete the outside circle.
Grab a cyan highlighter pen, and use this to fill in the rectangle on the right hand side.
Now, use a cyan pen and ruler to add two short vertical lines, in between the gray rectangles at the top. From the tops of these lines, add two more lines at 45 degree angles, and then connect the two halves with a final horizontal line.
Use the cyan pen and ruler to add a small rectangle inside this shape, and then fill this in with the cyan highlighter pen.
Take a cyan pencil, and carefully shade in the area around the rectangle you just drew.
Now use a blue pen to add color to the main body of the camera…
And use a cyan pen to complete the inside ring and finish the look!
And there we have it – a stylish camera, ready to snap the wildest adventures, and tell the craziest stories – but just what will it capture first?
