Traffic lights are an integral part of keeping us all safe, and they are super easy to draw – as we shall see in just a few short, simple steps!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a black pen and a ruler, and draw two parallel, vertical lines in the center of your page.
Add a horizontal line to the top and bottom, leaving the corners unconnected.
Join the corners with curved lines…
And then use a pencil and a drawing compass to add a circle to the center of the shape.
Add a circle above and below this…
Now, use an eraser to almost remove the circles, leaving just faint outlines.
Grab a brown pen, and draw a crescent moon shape, on its side, at the top of the traffic lights.
Now, finish the top circle with a red pen.
Use an orange pen to add another crescent moon shape to the top of the middle circle…
And shade the rest of this with a yellow pen.
Use a green pen to add another crescent moon to the top of the bottom circle…
And then fill this in with a lighter green pen.
Grab a black pen and ruler and add three lines on either side.
Now, add a diagonal line in between these straight ones.
Connect the angled and straight lines at the end with a curved line, creating three shapes on either side.
Use the ruler to bring two vertical, parallel lines down from the bottom…
And use a black pen to color the rest of the traffic lights, outside the colors.
Grab the red pen, and add a touch of color to the bottom of the top side shapes…
And then follow this with the yellow pen.
Finally, add color to the bottom with a green pen.
Now, on your marks, get set… and go!
