How to Draw a Cartoon Monster

The word "monster" is derived from a Latin word roughly translated "something wrong within nature." Monsters are typically hideous, scary creatures that can cause harm to people.

Ancient mythologies hold tales of many and varied monsters. In Greek mythology, for example, the Gorgons and Medusa were women with snakes for hair, who could turn men into stone. A giant dog with multiple heads guarded the gates to the underworld. Mermaid-like Sirens lured sailors to their deaths, while the hideous cyclops had only one eye. It is speculated that the ideas for these monsters may have arisen from observing birth defects in humans and in animals.

In modern popular culture, monsters are at times depicted as frightful, at times as kind and helpful. This variable view of monsters is evident in such animated films and series as Aaahh!! Real Monsters (1994-1997), Monsters, Inc. (2001), and Monsters University (2013).

Would you like to draw your very own monster? Doing so is easy with the help of this simple drawing tutorial. All you will need is a pencil and a piece of paper. You may also wish to use an eraser to correct mistakes and remove guide lines, and colored pencils, markers, paints, or crayons to color your finished drawing.

In each step of this drawing guide, new lines drawn are highlighted in blue while previous lines fade to black. Will your monster be friendly or frightful? That is entirely up to you.

How to Draw a Cartoon Spider

Some researchers have said that no matter where you are on planet earth, you are never more than three feet away from a spider. These prolific arthropods live in buildings, in the forest, in the desert - some even hunt under water.

Spiders are distinguished from other invertebrates by several unique characteristics. Their bodies have two segments, the head and abdomen. All spiders have eight legs and digest their food using poison injected by their fangs. Most spiders are harmless to humans, but a few can cause injury or even death.

Spiders come in a wide range of colors. A variety of orb weaver spiders called writing spiders have yellow and black zebra stripes on their back. Lynx spiders are bright green, and Hawaiian happy face spiders are yellow with black, red, and white spots that make them look like living emoticons. Other spiders are brown, black, white, yellow, red, or a combination of colors.

Cartoon spiders are a part of our popular culture. They often play a minor role, such as the "Spi'ider" in Megamind (2010) or the singing spiders in Sing (2016). At times, however, spiders are cast in a starring role, such as in Charlotte's Web (1973, 2006).

If you would like to draw your very own cartoon spider, all you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial.

How to Draw a Cartoon Steak

"Beef - it's what's for dinner."
- Slogan of the Cattlemen's Beef Board and National Cattlemen's Beef Association.

The word "steak" comes from the mid-fifteenth century terms steik or stekys, refering to "a thick slice of meat cut for roasting or grilling or frying." Steak is a favorite food of people around the world.

While steaks can be cut from virtually any type of meat, including pork, venison, and fish, the term most often refers to beefsteak. Restaurants that specialize in serving steak are called steakhouses. In many countries, including the United States and Australia, menus generally consist of several different cuts of steak that can be cooked to order, from rare to well done. Steaks are often served with salads, vegetables, mushrooms, rolls, and a starch, such as mashed potatoes, a baked potato, or steak fries.

Some steak cuts, such as prime rib and t-bone steak, are more highly prized than others, as are some types of cattle. For example, the Japanese Wagyu is known for the fine marbling of fat within the meat. Some Wagyu cattle are treated as celebrities, receiving massages and drinking wine.

In popular culture, a steak dinner is representative of an expensive meal, date night, or a celebration. The wealthy may be depicted as enjoying a steak dinner in juxtaposition to the hungry lower class. Many cartoons feature starving characters picturing their companions as giant steaks.

How to Draw Flames and Smoke – Really Easy Drawing Tutorial

"I have created fire!" - Actor Tom Hanks, Cast Away (2000).

Fire and smoke have been employed by humans for millennia. The ability to start fires and control them allowed people to cook their food, flavoring it and reducing disease from microscopic organisms; to stay warm in cold climates; and to keep dangerous wild animals at bay. Eventually, people discovered other uses for fire, such as in the manufacture of metal and glass products, or in clearing land for agriculture.

Smoke has also been put to use by humans. For centuries, smoke signals have been used as a means of long distance communication. For example, along China's Great Wall, soldiers used smoke to warn of impending dangers. In just a few hours, fires could be lit along the wall, carrying the message as much as 470 miles (750 kilometers). Native Americans and the ancient Greeks also used smoke signals to convey messages. Even today, special smoke is used in the Vatican in Rome, Italy to indicate whether a new pope has been elected.

Both flames and smoke are the result of a chemical reaction called rapid oxidation. In this reaction, molecules of oxygen are broken apart, producing heat. The contents of the material being burned play a role in determining how hot the fire is and the color of the flames and smoke. If the material has water in it, it will produce white smoke, while fuel, paint and other chemicals produce dark smoke.

Would you like to draw this natural phenomenon? Flames and smoke can be useful in drawing volcanoes, campfires, religious ideas, and natural or man-made disasters. All you will need to draw flames and smoke is a pencil, a sheet of paper, a good eraser, and this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial.

How to Draw a Rainbow – Really Easy Drawing Tutorial

Rainbows are a meteorological, or weather, phenomenon. When white light from the sun is bent, or refracted, by droplets of water, a rainbow appears. Rainbows always appear on the opposite side of the sky from the sun.

Did you know? The color bands of the rainbow always appear in a specific order. An easy way to remember the order is the acronym ROY G. BIV. Each letter in this fictional “name” stands for the first letter of a color: Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Indigo (a very dark shade of blue), and violet (a dark purple). In nature, the red is always on the top and the purple is on the bottom in a primary rainbow. This is due to the fact that blue and purple light bend more than red light when filtered through the raindrops. In the case of a double rainbow, the colors in the secondary arch are reversed.

Rainbows have featured in art and culture for millennia. One of the earliest recorded mentions of a rainbow is found in the Bible book of Genesis. In this account, the rainbow symbolized God’s promise to never again bring a global flood to the earth. The Greek scholar Aristotle and other ancient philosophers theorized possible causes for rainbows. In Ireland, leprechauns were said to hide their pots of gold at the end of a rainbow. Since rainbows appear to “move” when approached, the gold could never be discovered by people.

Rainbows feature prominently in religious art, and artists interested in painting the effects of light often include rainbows in their work. Certain family crests in Europe contained rainbows, and in Italy a rainbow flag was once used as a symbol of peace. Rainbows have featured in songs and poetry as well, such as in the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” from the film The Wizard of Oz (1933).

Would you like to draw your very own rainbow? Now you can, with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you will need is a pencil and a piece of paper. Since rainbows are very colorful, you will also likely wish to use crayons, colored pencils, paints, or markers to shade your finished drawing.

How to Draw a Cardinal Bird

The northern cardinal, also called the redbird, is a common sight at bird feeders across North America. Because of an abundance of sunflower seeds available in backyard feeders, the cardinal has expanded its range in recent years. Setting up a bird feeder is easy and cardinals are beautiful to watch.

​An endearing fact about cardinals is that they mate for life. Pairs generally stay within earshot of one another's calls. Cardinal pairs can raise up to four broods of chicks per year, and they have been known to grieve for a deceased mate.

​​Cardinals frequently figure in artwork. Dishes and decorations meant for the Christmas season often feature redbirds nestled among snowy evergreen boughs.

Many sports teams employ the cardinal as a mascot, most notably the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. It is also the official state bird in seven states - West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.

Angel Falls in Venezuela is the tallest waterfall in the world, cascading an amazing 3,200 feet. Angel Falls descends from a table-top mountain, a mountain with a flat top.

How to Draw a Cartoon Cow

Cows are one of the most widely known animals in the world. They are raised on farms for meat, milk, dairy products, and leather.

Cows called oxen are used as draft animals, pulling wagons or plows. In some areas, cattle are ridden like horses.

Even their manure is put to use, as fertilizer or fuel for fire. In some parts of the world, cows are revered as religious icons.

It is thought that the world's 1.4 billion cattle were domesticated from about eighty wild aurochs in the country of Turkey, many thousands of years ago. At one time, owning cattle, rather than money, was seen as a sign of a person's wealth.

It is no surprise, then, that the humble cow has long occupied a place in modern popular culture.

Clarabelle Cow is one of the earliest examples, joining Mickey Mouse and other Disney staples as early as 1928.

Since then, well known cartoon cows have included children's adaptations of Paul Bunyan and Babe, his blue ox; Cow from the cartoon series Cow and Chicken (1997), and the Chick-fil-a restaurant cows.
