How to Draw a Laptop

Artist: Dawn / March 11, 2011

Step 1.

Start by making the base of the laptop which is in the shape of a rectangle.

Step 2.

Using that one shape, draw out the base, and then draw the outline of the screen like you see here. It sort of looks like an open book.

Step 3.

Sketch in some dash like lining to show the thickness of the laptop, and then draw in the mouse pad and right and left mouse buttons.

Step 4.

Here you will draw in the actual screen which is framed by the body of the computer. When that is done, make a narrow rectangle for the keyboard area. Don't forget to add the camera above the screen.

Step 5.

Lastly, simply draw out the keys for the laptop's keyboard, and then begin erasing any guidelines or messy sketch lines that you drew from beginning to end.

Step 6.

Here is what your drawing looks like when you are all done. Now you can color in the laptop any shade you like. You can actually color it in pink if you want because nowadays you can actually buy pink colored laptops.
