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.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing an Apple
Draw two slightly overlapping circles.
Next, draw two slightly bigger overlapping circles above the first ones.
Draw four short lines to connect the edges of the circles.
Now, erase the lines inside. Your apple is beginning to take its shape.
Make a vertical line through the center of the apple. Make it light. This line is for guidance only and will be erased later.
Make a short, slightly curving line where the stem meets fruit. Draw the stem as two parallel curving lines.
Add an oval for the leaf.
Inside the leaf, draw the center line and two arrow-ends in the both ends of the leaf.
Erase the extra lines from the leaf and curve the center line slightly. Now the leaf look much more natural.
Finally, color your apple as you like.
