Start the drawing of the carrot by making a quick line sketch of its outer shape. It’s a good idea to use a pencil for the first few steps of this tutorial and to make light lines that you can easily erase.

Make the carrot shape narrower towards the bottom and wider towards the top and slightly narrower again at the very top.

Step 2 – Draw the Petioles Drawing

We won’t be going over drawing the leaves but you can add some of the petioles (parts form which the leaves grow) to make the drawing look a little more interesting.

Step 3 – Finish the Line Drawing

Finally add some lines across the main shape of the carrot to show a little bit of its texture. Try and make all of these of slightly different length and with random positioning to make the carrot look more natural.
