9. Sketch curved lines to give the leaf texture. Don't connect the lines to the edges of the leaf.
Color Your Cartoon Apple Drawing
Finally, color your cartoon apple outline with three shades of red. Use a medium shade for most of the apple, then sketch two dark curves near the bottom and make highlights at the top with reddish-pink. Add a white oval near the top.
Color the stem brown, and use three shades of green for the leaf. Shading your outline might be challenging, but it makes your apple look more realistic and three-dimensional. You can use these techniques when you try more complicated guides, such as an apple pie drawing tutorial.
Do you want more ideas on how to draw your cartoon apple? Here are few more ideas for your fruit drawing.
If you want to give your apple some personality, sketch a face with an oval-shaped eye and pupil, then use curved lines for the mouth and winking eye. Add a heart for the tongue.
You can also cut a bite out of your apple. Sketch a jagged line on the right side that cuts into the apple, then draw a vertical line that connects the upper and lower sections. Draw lines inside the bitten part, and use a tube and ovals for the worm.
Are you particularly hungry? Draw the full apple, then cut out both sides with uneven curved lines to create the core. Sketch jagged lines on the top and bottom, and draw lines and teardrop-shaped seeds inside the core for added detail.
