In this easy step-by-step tutorial, you will learn how to draw a cartoon watermelon. This delicious juicy fruit is easy to recognize with its bright colors and dark and oval seeds.
However, in this drawing lesson, you won't learn how to draw the entire fruit, but only a colorful piece of it! So grab a pencil and a piece of paper and start practicing right now by moving on to the simple video below. Once you are done, you can also use the written version found after the video for more details.
First, draw a circle (only the half of it). Don't hesitate to draw the entire circle and then erase half of the shape if you feel more comfortable with this technique. Your shape doesn't need to be perfect since this is an organic entity.
Then, create two more outlines around your first shape. Try to make both shape similar by keeping a small distance between each shape. Notice that the new shapes are not visible on top of your watermelon.
Repeat this step once again by creating a larger shape around the last shape you have drawn in the previous step. However, this new shape should be only visible near the right section of your fruit.
Next, add some seeds on your watermelon. Remember that each seed is made of an oval shape with the top part being narrow and the bottom part being larger and rounder.
Add some colors on your image. Notice that the green parts are created from light green to a darker tone.
If you want to add some gradient effects and shadows, don't hesitate to do so. That's it! You have created a cool and simple piece of watermelon in only six easy steps!
