Well this is going to be my second tutorial for the day and this time I will be showing you how to draw a cartoon gnome step by step. Now gnomes are those little clay or ceramic figures that sit in gardens, front yards, flower beds, and walk ways. All gnomes look like little elves and they mainly fall in the category of being mythological creatures or even fairies. Gnomes have been a part of folklore for decades spreading on a worldwide tale. There are German gnomes, Swedish gnomes, and gnomes from France and Iceland as well. Initially these small man like beings were said to be small, bearded and they are mainly seen wearing pointed colorful conical hats and they sometimes have either a pipe in their hand, a mallet, shovel or rake. Figures of gnomes are also sometimes seen napping with their hats pulled over their eyes or just being jolly and cute. They have childish faces with and old aged look. Rosy cheeks, stubby bodies and even wrinkle lines make these ceramic models more and more popular. The most sought after gnome is the garden gnome. Stories of the garden gnome took effect in the mid 1800’s and they are described as being “helpful aids to the garden at night”. Did you know that garden gnomes where first introduced to the United Kingdom back in 1847 by a gentleman named Sir Charles Isham. Any way you want to look at these little men, they are still incredibly cute. This tutorial will show you how to draw a gnome step by step. I will be back with some more cool drawing tutorials in a while so keep your eye open and you hands on the paper until my return.
