For many of us, computers are integral to our daily lives. They allow us to carry out our jobs, socialize with our friends, and even order food and other items. Knowing the basics of your computer is an important skill, and we have everything that you need to know – ready to learn? Then read on!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a ruler and a pencil to draw a rectangle in the left side of your page.
Add a second, smaller rectangle inside the first…
And then a smaller rectangle below this. Use the pencil and ruler to add a vertical line to the bottom, and then add a long, thin rectangle to the space below the bottom shape.
Connect this long, thin shape to the bottom rectangle with angled lines, connected to horizontal lines at the top.
Next, add an identical shape below this, this time slightly larger than the one above.
Add another horizontal line just above the bottom one…
And then use pairs of short vertical marks across the stripe.
Now, add a larger shape around the outline of the bottom one, enclosing the other shapes within this.
Divide the top section into squares – this will be the keyboard.
Use the pencil and ruler to add a rectangle to either side…
And then add larger rectangles around these smaller ones.
Now, add an oval shape to the bottom of the left rectangle. Add two small circles inside this – one at either end.
Next, add an oval shape below the right rectangle, and add a small mark to the top – this will be the mouse.
Next, use the ruler and pencil to add diagonal lines inside the smaller rectangles, creating the speakers.
Now, use the pencil and ruler to draw another rectangle to the right.
Now, add a square to the bottom of this, and two long rectangles to the top. Draw two small circles below these top rectangles.
Next, draw another line above the top one, and connect this to the one below with diagonal lines to create the tower of the computer.
Repeat this on the top of the screen…
And on top of the speakers.
Next, add another rectangle to the right of the tower.
Add another, smaller rectangle above the larger one, extending the line at the bottom out slightly.
Now, add short lines on either side of the smaller rectangle. Add diagonal lines to the end, and connect these with a horizontal line across the center. Bring a line down on either side and then join these at the bottom. Add two small squares to the bottom.
Now, add another, smaller rectangle to the bottom of this new shape – this will be the printer.
Now, add the tray to the printer. Bring two lines across from the central rectangle, and then add a long, thin rectangle at the end.
Use an eraser to remove the line in the center of this tray…
And then use the eraser to remove the lines from the center of the keyboard and computer.
Tidy up the outlines where you have used the eraser.
Now, use the ruler to add two horizontal lines to the bottom of the page, one higher than the other, and then one line above the screen, and one above the top of the printer.
Grab a black fineliner, and go over all the lines – excluding the horizontal ones that you just drew.
Use the black fineliner to label the parts – “Monitor”, “Computer”, “Printer”, “Speaker”, “Mouse”, “Keyboard”.
Now, use the black pen and ruler to draw lines connecting each label to the relevant part.
Use an eraser to remove the remaining pencil marks…
And then use a blue pen for the screen.
Use a yellow pen to shade the speakers…
And then use an orange pen for the circles at the bottom of the speaker.
Grab a gray pen, and shade the front of the printer, the front of the computer and speakers, the mouse, the keyboard, and the screen.
Then, use a darker gray for the rest of the white spaces, leaving the paper at the top of the printer white.
Finally, use a gray pen to add shadows under each of the components.
And there we have it – your very own computer set, complete with labels ready for you to learn.
