How to Draw a Camera

Artist: Dawn / October 23, 2013

Step 1.

The first thing you will do is draw the protective cover that holds the lighting for the flash. This is usually a flat dimensional shape on the top of your camera.

Step 2.

Next, draw the cylinder shape for the casing for your lens. In this case the casing is sort of long because I almost always have the zoom lends attached to my camera.

Step 3.

Here you will sketch in the front part of the lens or "glass" like I call it. Draw the glare mark, then sketch in the ring around the casing of the lens.

Step 4.

You will finish the design of the camera by drawing the body. Sketch in the detailing then move to the last drawing step.

Step 5.

Erase your mistakes then draw in the groove lines on the lens, then draw the buttons.

Step 6.

Here is the line art for the camera. Now you can color it or use your drawing for a character you may be drawing.

Description: I know there are lesson on Dragoart from other artists on a camera because I remember seeing one in the past. I thought I would do a simple cartoon style lesson on my camera that I use for both taking pictures and video drawings. Here is "how to draw a camera", step by step. The camera in this tutorial looks a lot like my Rebel T3 and it should because that is the camera that I based this tutorial on. Photography is such a beautiful activity because you can capture pictures of that perfect moment whether it be a bright blue sky, a wonderfully colored bird, a bouquet of wildflowers scattered about on a country side hilltop or just a picture of someone you love. You have the ability to freeze a moment in time forever so you can go back to that day every single time you pick up a photograph. I'm a big fan of film whether it be a movie or picture. I hope you find a use for this tut on drawing a camera.
