How To Draw An Apple with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy drawing tutorial for beginners and kids.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
In this first step of the apple tutorial, we won’t actually start from the final drawing.
When drawing shapes consisting of specific shapes, it can be very helpful to use the basic shapes as a guide before starting to draw the final shape.
For this step you should use a light pencil to draw the two intersecting ovals you can see in our reference image.
These two ovals will be incredibly helpful in your next apple step!
Draw along the outline of your apple
For this apple drawing, you will start drawing the outline of the apple. Using the two ovals that you drew in the previous step, carefully trace the outline as it appears in the reference image we have in this tutorial.
I still recommend using a pencil for the final contour, but once it looks good to you you can rewrite it with a pen.
Once you’ve drawn the outline with your pen, you can erase the pencil lines underneath, but be sure to let the ink dry properly before erasing, as you could smudge the ink otherwise!
Next, draw a stalk for your apple
The hardest part of this apple drawing tutorial is already behind you, so from this step onwards I will add some details and final elements.
In this step, we will add a stem to the top of your apple.
The trunk we have in our example is nice and thick, so you can duplicate it for your own drawing or make it a bit smaller if you want.
Once satisfied with the look and feel of the trunk, you can move on to step 4.
Now add a leaf to your apple
Time to add more detail to your apple drawing! In this step we will draw a leaf for your apple.
This should happen on the right side of the trunk from the previous step, and if it looks a bit empty now, don’t worry! We will add some details to it in the next step.
Next, draw some final details for your apple
The second to last step of our how to draw an apple tutorial is to add some final details to bring it all together. In our tutorial, we finished off with some of the textured details on the leaf that you drew in step 4.
With that added in, you’ve got a nice drawing of the apple, but you can go into more detail if you want!
You can draw several things to add to this drawing and there is no limit to the creative ideas you can use.
Some examples could be having a cute worm emerge from the apple to say hello or something more subtle like some white squares to represent the light reflected from the apple.
You can also draw some other elements, such as the apple platter, and if you’re feeling ambitious you can draw other fruits to make it a proper still life!
What fun details would you add to take this apple to the next level?
