How To Draw A TV – A Step by Step Guide

Television has been a source of entertainment for billions of people worldwide. With a wide variety of television shows to cater to every taste and preference, it’s no wonder why so many people tune in daily. TVs come in different shapes, sizes, and types, making it fun to learn how to draw a TV and add your unique variations. In this step-by-step guide, you’ll learn everything you need to create your very own retro TV drawing. So, grab a ruler and let’s get started!

Step 1 – Drawing the TV Set

To begin, we’ll draw a charming retro TV set. Having a ruler handy will make it easier for you to draw. Start by outlining a rectangular shape for the TV set. Instead of a standard rectangle, round off the corners to give it a touch of personality. Don’t worry if you prefer pointy corners; it’s all about your personal style. Once you’re done with this outline, proceed to step 2.

Step 2 – Adding the TV Screen

Now, let’s add the screen to your TV drawing. Using the ruler again, draw a square within the frame. Since we’re going for an older TV look, the screen will only occupy about three-quarters of the TV, unlike modern sets. Place the square on the left-hand side of the frame and remember to add some curved corners. With the screen complete, it’s time to move on to step 3.

Step 3 – Drawing the TV Buttons

In this step, we’ll draw the outline of the panel that houses all the buttons. In the old days, you had to change channels and adjust the volume directly on the TV itself. To achieve this, draw another thin vertical rectangle on the right-hand side of the set. Like the previous shapes, give this rectangle rounded corners. Once you’re done, we can proceed to add buttons and details in the next steps.

Step 4 – Adding Buttons and a TV Stand

It’s time to add buttons to our TV drawing. Start by drawing two circles for the dials inside the long rectangle on the right. Then, use your ruler to draw smaller straight lines beneath the buttons. These lines will enhance the button details. Now, let’s move on to step 5 to add the final touches.

Step 5 – Finishing Touches and Details

This step is all about adding the final touches before adding some colors. Add small curved lines to the dials to simulate where you would grab them to adjust. Next, draw some straight lines beneath the TV to create the base it sits on. You can also draw a TV cabinet for some extra flair. Lastly, extend straight lines from the top of the TV to create the antenna. To capture a bygone era of TV, draw color bars using straight lines on the screen. However, feel free to draw something else if you prefer. Be creative and let your imagination run wild!

Step 6 – Adding Colors

Congratulations, you’ve reached the final step! It’s time to add captivating colors to your TV drawing. While we used more muted colors for the TV itself, we opted for bright colors for the color bars. However, you can use any colors you desire. If you added a different image on the screen, color it accordingly. Experiment with various colors, art mediums, and tools to bring your TV drawing to life.

Enhancing Your TV Drawing

Here are some tips to make your TV sketch even better:

1. Change the Design

Feel free to modify the design of your TV drawing to match one you’re familiar with. If you have a TV at home, use it as a reference to recreate its features. There are countless TV designs to choose from, so pick one that appeals to you.

2. Create a Background Setting

Add objects around the TV to create a background setting. Consider drawing a TV cabinet or coffee tables to enhance the scene. Look around your own living room for inspiration. With just a few objects, you can create a complete background scene.

3. Include Human Characters

A TV is not complete without someone watching it. Add human characters to your TV sketch to bring it to life. You can draw them in any style you like, whether they’re lying on the floor or sitting on a sofa. You can even use your own family members as characters in the drawing.

4. Customize the Screen

Instead of color bars, you can remove them and draw something else on the screen. There are endless possibilities for what you can depict on the TV screen. Consider drawing a scene from your favorite show or creating a logo for a show you’d like to invent.
