When we think of cartoons, we often think first of the characters. The environment, however, can be just as important.
Think of Goldilocks and the three bears - the story wouldn't have been the same without the bears' house, where everything was either too much, too little, or just right.
What about the gingerbread house that Hansel and Gretel found, the little old woman who lived in a shoe, Nemo's anemone, or even the pineapple under the sea that houses the cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants?
Without the houses, these and other stories would simply not be complete.
Would you like to draw your very own cartoon house? Doing so is simple and easy when you use this step-by-step drawing tutorial.

You won't need any special tools or skills, only a pencil and a piece of paper. You may want to have an eraser handy to correct any mistakes, and some colored pencils, markers, or crayons to shade your finished picture.
As you follow this drawing guide, you will notice that each step is accompanied by an illustration. In each picture, new lines added in the current step are highlighted in blue.
Lines drawn in previous steps are shown in black. Sketch lightly at first, as you will be erasing some of your early lines as you go along.
