How to Draw a Cartoon Sun

In this guide, we will draw a sun in a cartoon style in thirteen simple steps.

Follow step-by-step guide, and you’ll be surprised how little time drawing a cartoon sun will take. I’ve highlighted each new step with blue lines to make the tutorial easier to follow.

Draw soft lines with your pencil. Many of the lines are there to help you with proportions and dimensions, and will be erased before the end.

At the end you can add a thicker line in black if you want, and color your sun. I’m sure you will be really happy with the final result.

You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, ruler, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
