This short and fairly four step tutorial shows how to draw a strawberry. It can be good fore beginners that want to draw something nice but simple.
The strawberry shown as an example in this tutorial should be quite easy to draw even if you are a beginner. Just follow the steps carefully. You can see the preview of them in the image above.
Start the tutorial in pencil and make light lines. This will both make it easier to correct mistakes and allow you to erase a little bit of the drawing, which you will need to do in step two. You can darken them later on with a black pen or marker.
Step 1 – Draw the Outer Shape of the Strawberry
Begin by fist outlining the strawberry’s outer shape. Make it wider towards the top and wider as it goes down with a bit of a bump at the very bottom. This type of shape is fairly characteristic of strawberries so if you get this part right your drawing will already start to look like what it’s supposed to.
Step 2 – Draw the Crown
You can either erase a little bit of the strawberries outline at the top first or draw in the crown and then erase it afterwards.
The crown is made up of sepals (little leaves). Try and draw these of slightly different shapes and sizes as shown in the example. You can outline each with just two curvy/wavy lines.
Once you’ve drawn the crown add the stem coming out of it’s center. Make it narrower towards the bottom and wider towards the top.
Step 3 – Finish the Line Drawing
To finish the line drawing add the seeds. Try and draw the these in a way that makes them sort of “flow” along the shape of the strawberry. You can do this by positioning them at angles that somewhat matches the outer curves of the berry, especially near the edges. Draw the seeds closer to the middle with less of an angle and the ones in the very middle just vertically.
Draw the seeds closer to the middle with less of an angle (closer to being vertical) and make their shapes wider. Drawing them in such a way will give the strawberry a more three dimensional appearance.
Once you are done with the seeds go over your lines with a black pen or a thin black marker. Alternatively you can also just darken them by pressing harder on the pencil.
Step 4 – Color the Drawing
Finally for some basic color you can simply make the strawberry red, the crown and stem green, and the seeds yellow. Markers, paints and colored pencils can all be good and easy options for doing this.
Once done coloring you should be finished with the tutorial.
While the drawing is quite simple the final result still looks quite nice, especially so because of the little trick of using the seeds to give the strawberry a more 3d appearance.
