Today we’re going to draw a robot. Robots are easy to draw because you can assemble a robot drawing from simple shapes. The following easy step-by-step robot drawing tutorial has only ten steps.
We’ll start by drawing simple shapes. The shapes will help to make the robot drawing symmetrical. Begin sketching very lightly. Don’t draw thick lines that are hard to erase during the drawing process.
In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.

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

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Robot
Begin by drawing an elongated oval. Split the oval into three equal sized parts by drawing two horizontal lines across it.
Draw a rectangle below the lower horizontal line.
Draw two narrow rectangles for the robot’s legs.
Add two semi-circles for the feet in the bottom of the drawing. Draw a long, straight line that cuts the large oval in half. Draw a rectangle below the upper horizontal line that we drew in step 1.
Draw a small rectangle connecting the rectangles we drew in steps 2 and 4.
Next, we will outline the robot’s arms, but first erase the lower 2/3rds of the original oval. Draw two narrow rectangles on both sides of the body followed by a small circle. Add two more narrow rectangles that angle away from the circle.
Add two C-shapes for hands at the end of each arm.
Draw a small rectangle for the mouth.
Erase the vertical center line. Draw a long and narrow rectangle inside the lower body.
The drawing is almost ready. Add two circles for the eyes and draw a colored circle inside each eye for pupils. Draw two curving lines that end with small circles on top of the robot’s head.
Finally, trace your robot drawing with heavier lines and color it. Your cute cartoon robot is ready!
