How to Draw a Great Looking Easy Train for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

Train step-by-step drawing tutorial: step 1

1. Begin the easy cartoon train outline by drawing geometric shapes. Start with a narrow horizontal rectangle. On top of it, draw another rectangle half its length.

Then draw a small rectangle. In the remaining space, draw another rectangular shape with a slanted top. Then, draw a narrow rectangle on that slanted top. This lays the basis for the train’s engine.

2. Begin adding details to the locomotive, erasing as necessary. Within the slanted shape, draw a horizontal rectangle with two narrow vertical rectangles passing through it. Draw an arched opening on top.

At the front of the train, enclose an “L” shape. Draw two successively smaller half-circles on the front of the “L.”

Below it, enclose a trapezoid shape, and draw two straight lines across it. This is called the cowcatcher or pilot.
