How to Draw a Cartoon Valley
Drawing a cartoon valley is a bit more difficult than some of the other cartoon drawings we've discussed before, but it can still be accomplished in just four steps.Sit down at your drawing chair and with a little determindation we'll blast through this lesson
in four simple steps. Are you ready?
Let's rock and roll!
Step 2 - A River and the Background
Coming from the base of the mountain on the right side of your paper, start another minimally squiggly line that angles down more steeply.
This line will make one side of the river that runs through the valley.
Step 3 - Clouds, Bushes, and a Stream
The squiggly line you drew at the end of step two is going to be a stream, and you can create another curved line coming out, widening creatively as you move further down into the valley. This will give the effect of depth as the river should look larger as it gets toward the front of the drawing.
Around the stream, you can create some bushes to keep the area from looking too empty. These structures will look like the clouds but will not be solid on the bottom.
Step 4 - Adding more Details
Atop your right hand mountain, you can cap it with trees by adding your cloudlike billows upside down and in smaller bubbles. Add more shrubs and bushes as you see fit, and create individual trees on your left hand mountain around your shrubs to give a little variation to the trees.
Technically, that's all there is to a cartoon valley! I suggest coloring in your drawing to finish it off. That's all there is to this easy step by step drawing of a cartoon valley.
