Description:You will learn how to draw a wagon.
Terms of use: You are welcome to use your finished product how ever you like but please don't copy anything from this site and call it your own.

Step 1
Open a new image 300x300 with a white background.
Add a new layer and using color #a75b00, draw a line around the middle of the image, 91 pixels across and 8 pixels down on each side.
Connect the bottom to form a rectangle.

Step 2
Select inside the rectangle and flood fill with color #d3862e.

Step 3
Keep the rectangle selected and add noise>
Add/remove noise> Add noise> Uniform, 6%, monochrome checked.

Step 4
Duplicate this layer two times and move each layer down overlapping the bottom layers to form the front of the wagon.

Step 5
Turn off your bottom layer and merge visible.
Call this layer wagon front.

Step 6
Add a new layer and call it wagon side.
Using my guide and starting on the right side of the wagon front,
pixel the side of the wagon using color #a75b00.
Close off the left side using the same color.
This part of the wagon is going to be covered but for shading purposes, it's best to close all sides.

Step 7
Select inside all the areas and flood fill with color #d3862e.
Apply same noise as in step 3.

Step 7
Add a new layer and call it left edge.
Starting on the left side of the wagon front, pixel a rectangle over the left edge, 6 pixels wide using color #bc9631.
Select inside and flood fill with color #dec15a.
Select none.

Step 8
Apply the same noise as you did in step 3.
This time it will also be applied to the outline of this edge.

Step 9
Using color #75630d, pixel a 2x2 around the top center and bottom center of this edge piece.
See example.

Step 10
Duplicate the left edge layer and move it to the right side of the wagon.
Rename this layer right edge.

Step 11
Add a new layer and call it side left.
Starting on top of the right side of the left edge layer, using color #bc9631, pixel a rectangle 6 pixels to the right.
Pixel down the left side of this edge to the bottom of the wagon's right side and pixel over 6 pixels to the left.
Connect your pixels to form a rectangle.
Select inside and flood fill with. #f2e07a.
Deselect and apply the same noise as in step 3.
See example in step 12.

Step 12
Using color #75630d, draw a small 2x2 square along the top center and bottom center.
Start one pixel up from the square on the front edge.
See example.
wagon edges

Step 13
Duplicate this layer then flip horizontal, flip vertical.
Place this layer on the far right of the wagon side.
See example.
wagon corners

Step 14
Turn off your bottom layer and merge visible.

Step 15
Add a new layer and call it handle.
Using my guide, pixel the outline for the handle using color #bc9631.

Step 16
Fill in the handle using color #f2e07a and apply the same noise as in step 3.

Step 17
Add a new layer and call it wheel.
Using my guide, pixel the outside of the wheel with color #7b792e.
Use the guide for the inner circle and pixel using #948e76.
My guide will also help you figure out where to place the wheel.
Count over 14 pixels from the edge piece and 3 pixels down from the bottom of the middle rectangle.

Step 18
Fill in the main wheel using color #c4bf5b.
Add noise. Same settings as in step 3 but increase the percentage to 15.
Fill in the inner outline with color #a69f86.
Use color #646557 to fill in the outside of the inner circle.
Use color #54504d to make a 2x2 square a little off center from the center of the wheel.
See example.

Step 19
Duplicate this layer and rearrange to bring it under the wagon layer.
Have the bottom of the wheel line up with the front wheel and the right side of the wheel, 4 pixels from the wagon's front edge piece.
See example.

The main wagon is done.
Delete the background layer and merge visible.
Export as a picture tube so you can fill it with some items.
If you don't want to fill it, continue on and we'll make a back for it.

Step 20
Add a new layer and place it under your wagon.
Flood fill it with white.
You should still have your grid turned on and be zoomed in 800%.

Step 21
Add a new layer above the white layer and still under your wagon.
Starting at the top right just to the left of the corner edge, pixel a straight line 91 pixels across using #a75b00.
Example will follow.
Pixel a line starting with the 91st top pixel, down to the top left of the wagon.
My example shows a red arrow across the top for the 91 pixels.
I've put a blue dot where you should start the back end and a green dot where it will end.
See example.
wagon back
Pixel a straight line down to the top of the wagon from the top left corner.
I used #c06700 and #d3862e to fill in the inside of the wagon.

Add the same noise you added in step 3.

Step 22
Delete the background layer.
If you want to fill this wagon and have a back, don't merge otherwise merge visible and export it as a gif or export it to picture tube.
If you want a back with items in it, export your back layer as a picture tube then when you put something in it, be sure what you're putting in the wagon is on top of the back layer.
I hope this all makes sense.
