This tutorial shows how to draw a widescreen TV in six steps. It includes simple illustrated examples and quick instructions.
As you can see in the above preview of the drawing steps the tutorial is fairly easy. Most of it consists of straight lines that you can draw with the help of a ruler. However, if you want to improve your artistic skills it’s recommended that you do as much as you can freehand (without drawing aids).
Start the tutorial in pencil and make light lines that are easy to erase in case you need to make a correction. You can darken them later on with a black pen or marker.
Step 1 – Draw the Outline of the Television
Begin the drawing with a simple rectangle and give it slightly rounded corners. Do your best to try and make sure that this shape is not bent or skewed and that your lines (excluding the corners) are straight.
Step 2 – Draw the Screen
Inside the main outline of the TV draw a small rectangle for it’s screen. The corners on this one don’t need to be rounded.
When drawing it try and make sure that the spacing between it and the larger rectangle is even on all sides.
Step 3 – Draw the Front of the Legs
Coming out of the bottom of the television add the front part of the legs. You can draw these on a slight angle as shown in the example.
Step 4 – Draw the Front Sides of the Legs
Show a bit of the inner side of each leg, again, as in the provided example.
Step 5 – Draw the Back of the Legs & Finish the Line Drawing
Finally add the back portions of the legs starting with their front and then then sides (just like the front portions).
You can see a step by step drawing of one of the television’s legs in the example above. You can add the other one using the same steps but as a mirror of the first one.
Once done with these you can trace over your drawing with a black pen, marker or darker pencil lines. You can again use a ruler to help you do this.
Step 6 – Color the Television
To color the television make the legs and frame a medium grey and the screen blue with a bit of a gradient in it’s upper left corner (from white to blue). The gradient will help show light reflecting from the smooth surface of the screen and will make the drawing a bit more interesting.
An easy way to get the grey is just by using a regular pencil and the blue by using a blue one.
Due to the fairly simple shapes it’s comprised of a standard widescreen TV like the one in this tutorial is generally quite easy to draw, especially with a detailed breakdown as the one offered in this tutorial. Hopefully you’ve found the examples and instructions helpful.
