One of the most challenging things about learning how to draw is coming up with cool ideas for things to draw. Do you want to get easy and cute things to draw? We have 25 cool drawings for you.
As anybody who has ever try to draw not all objects are suitable for beginners. The last thing you want is to feel frustrated by trying to draw something that is too difficult. Also, some objects can be easy but boring to draw. If are ready for some cool suggestions, you have come to the right place.
- The Solar System
Artists of any kind have been trying to show us man’s true place in the universe. Now, that might seem like an excessively ambitious pursuit for someone looking for easy things to draw. But, that is not necessarily the case.
A cool idea is to draw our solar system.
- A flower in a bottle.
If you like to keep things at a smaller scale and focus on smaller, more delicate details, how about sketching life in a bottle?
An easy yet fun drawing idea would be to draw a single flower in a glass bottle. You can have a lot of fun with that idea because you can choose any flower species or bottle shape you would like.
- Into the Woods.
Landscapes can be very evocative. How about woodland? A mountain range in the background under a starry or a sunny sky should be enough to get your imagination going.
You can add as much (or as little) detail as you would like: trees, animals, a camping tent, … even a fire.
- A Campsite.
A woodland landscape can become a campsite if you add the right details. You do not need to worry about drawing people, but you add a trail, a river, a lake, … It is up to you!
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad. – Salvador Dali
- Sky at night.
Skies can be fascinating. But although skies at night are hard to photograph well (unless you have some expensive equipment with access to a clean open sky), they are not hard to draw.
Again, you can add as much detail as you want: clouds, the moon, stars, shooting stars, etc.
- Flying saucer.
Even if you are not a fan of classic science-fiction, you should be familiar with the round shape of a flying saucer. That is a great starting point, but you might want to use your imagination and either try out different shapes or add more detail.
If you do not find a campsite to be very exciting, perhaps you are more of a seaside person. How about drawing a beach?
- A volcano.
A volcano can be calm or in the middle of a spectacular eruption.
You can play with shape and add lots of detail to a majestic mountain range.
- A ship Out at Sea.
Anything from a simple ship for something more elaborate can be a cool idea. And then, there is the ocean with its waves and surf and the sky.
- Animal footprint.
Simple lines and proportion are all you really need to know about.
You can draw any of the big landmasses individually or together.
You have a lot to choose from Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Heck! You can even come up with your own imaginary planet.
A floating dandelion is a cool idea.
- A light bulb.
If you like rounded lines, how about a light bulb?
You do not need to be an infatuated teenager to draw hearts.
- A lighthouse.
Lighthouses are evocative because they stand alone, protecting sailors from mortal danger.
You can do that with as much detail as you want. Do not forget to use your imagination!
More Cool Things
- Paper Planes.
You can draw one or several of them. And you can add the imaginary trail they leave in the air.
If are already experienced in drawing landscapes, you might want to play with framing. So, how about putting your landscape on a postcard. Just to be clear, we do not mean that you draw on an actual postcard, we are talking about drawing a postcard.
There are some many different kinds of trees that you will never exhaust this subject. Palm trees, pine trees, and oaks are particularly popular but there are many others. You can choose to focus on just one tree or do groups of trees (either belonging to the same species or different ones).
There are many iconic cityscapes in the world: New York City, Paris, London, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Sidney, etc. Start off by recreating the one that you are most familiar with (even if it is somewhere like Indianapolis) or, if you can a lot of imagination, you can make up your very own exciting cityscape.
- Moon over the ocean.
A simple yet evocative drawing idea is the ocean at night reflecting with a huge shining full moon in the night sky. You can add waves, ripples, or any other details you choose to.
As with trees, flowers offer us great variety. Once you become deft at drawing flowers you might want to combine them with something else. Use your imagination here. You can add flowers to most of the previous ideas.
Our final suggestion is one of the most complex ones we have. This comes particularly recommended for people who love dogs. In fact, if you one as a pet you might want to start off by drawing your own dog.
You can also incorporate a dog (or more than one) in many of the other suggestions we have put forward in this article.
So, what are you waiting for? It is time to take out paper and pencils and get drawing! And, if you have any more suggestions of your own, why don’t you share them with other readers by leaving us a message in the comments section below?
