How to Draw an Apple

Today we will draw a juicy, red apple. Fruits can be a little tricky to draw as we automatically associate certain shapes to a specific fruit, and if those shapes are a little bit off, a fruit doesn’t look just right.

But worry not, as drawing an apple with the following 10 simple steps is really easy.

To make the apple look right, we start with a few simple shapes that will look like an actual apple when connected.

Draw with a light touch as you will be erasing those geometric shapes before your apple drawing is finished.

In this tutorial, you will find each step highlighted in a light blue color.

You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
