How to Draw a Cartoon Watermelon Step by Step! (2019)


In this episode, I’m going to show you how
to draw a watermelon! So, grab a pencil, cancel your plans, put
on your artists pants And let’s discover cartooning Welcome to the channel, my name is Malcolm
Monteith from DiscoverCartooning.com. A website with resources, online courses and
free tutorials – everything you need to get started cartooning. And for this cartoon, we are drawing a watermelon. We’re gonna start with a semi-circle. And this little watermelon is gonna have some
eyes. Every good watermelon has a nice pair of round
eyes. Looks just like a watermelon! Alright now we need to give him a crust…
uhhh it’s not a crust is it? He’s not bread – he’s a watermelon. So this is skin. This is his green skin and this is going to
be the centre. Let’s put in his pupils (in case we forget). Very important. Alright! What else do watermelons have? They have bite marks taken out of them. Sometimes. Sometimes people bite watermelons. So you gotta have a bite mark. Alright… and what else do they have? That’s right. They have shorts. They have very short shorts. They never have long shorts. Which is very strange but I’ve never seen
a watermelon wearing long shorts. And if you’ve ever seen a watermelon wearing
long shorts, let me know in the comments section because I’ve really got to know this. Alright, it’s looking okay. Let’s now give him some legs. And then some socks. Great! For his shoes… let’s just put a semi circle…
let’s put a semi circle here. Aaaand we’ll put another semi circle here. And now they’re kind of three-quarter view
shoes. Let’s put these bits in. and give him some
soles on the three-quarter view shoes. There you go. That’s how you draw shoes. Next, we need arms. So just a little pointy triangle. It’s kind of a triangle. It’s got three sides. Maybe? No? meh. And another one. Okay. Okay. And then a hand. Looks nothing like a hand. But It’ll do. We’ll give him some fingers. There you go now – now it’s a hand. And this one is sticking out too much so let’s
rub it out. Let’s do it again. This watermelon has got I.L.S. Invisible Lat Syndrome. And that’s why he’s got his arms sticking
out. You see a lot of dudes standing like this. Solid. Now he needs a watermelon smile. And we’ve just gotta put in some seeds here. Let’s give him some seeds. A nice smile made up of seeds. Whatta weirdo. Circle there. Circle there. Uh! Almost forgot! His eyebrows! Watermelons need eyebrows, man. Alright. Look at that. Let’s now give him… let’s now give him some ink. With a thick pen. Get your thick pen out. And let’s have a good time. Okay, arms… this is the easy part. Cos we’ve done the sketch, which is the
hard work. And now it’s just inking. And a seed for that eye. And a seed for that eye. Alright. What a cool little watermelon. Arlight he needs watermelon stripes on his
shorts. And the seeds, making them all different sizes. And this is a slightly thinner pen now, by
the way. It’s a Posca 3M. Alright, fingers. Now we get a super thin pen. Put in some random details, just to make it
look a little bit cooler. On the shoes. And on the eyebrows. Okay, let’s get a thick pen again and put
in some sweet, sweet black shadows. How exciting. Nice areas of black always make things look
cool. Maybe give him a watch, so he can tell the
time. We’ll put some random shapes around him. Just to make him look more dynamic. Like he’s moving… or time travelling. I don’t know. I don’t know. I didn’t think this through. Okay. Let’s get colouring. But first! Let’s rub out the pencil! Put it all over the floor. All over the floor. Oh man, look how blunt that is. Hang on… Okay that’s better. Let’s colour. Alright that’s the red. And what else? Let’s make his legs red. And his hands, and arms. Just like that. And that’s gonna be red. And the sneakers are gonna be red. And you’re probably wondering this is the
only pencil I own, but no, I’ve also got a bit of green. Right here. For the skin. This green is too light, but we’re going
to go over it now with a dark green. Alright. Now for the pants. Definitely have to be green. Because a watermelon with red pants would
look… ridiculous. Eyebrows… Now for a bit of fancy shading… let’s
uhhh… let’s uh find my purple pencil here. Alright. So I’m just going to use this to add some
very subtle shading here and there. Just a nice little extra touch. And then, shaded in on each alternate stripe. Alright, nearly there. Let’s get out the white and colour in his
eyes. And his socks. And his sneakers. And this little bit here. Just so it covers up the pen. Okay nearly done. I just wanna put a little bit of white on
the crusts… I mean the skin. It’s that part of the watermelon that you
never eat. Alright that looks pretty sweet. Gonna call this done. We have just drawn an anatomically correct
watermelon. If you have any questions or comments, leave
