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.

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.

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.
