The type of potato in this case will be a baking potato. They tend to be fairly large and long in shape.

Though this tutorial is very simple it’s recommended that you start it with a pencil and draw light lines. This will make it easier to correct any potential mistakes.

Step 1 – Draw the Outline of the Potato

In between the larger bumps/indents draw the eyes (where the sprouts grow from). You can do this by adding tiny curves in between the bumps.

Step 4 – Color the Potato

Finally to color the potato you can make it a light brown with a little bit of grey. It’s probably best to do this with pencils or paints. You can use a brown colored pencil and lightly go over it with a regular pencil to add the grey. If using paints you can mix in a tiny bit of black into brown.

Conclusion

This is a very easy tutorial as due to the irregular shape of the potato it’s fairly hard to make any major mistakes when drawing it. For more similar tutorials also see:
