how to draw
This is a great tutorial for beginners and more experienced artists alike, as all of the basic drawing elements and full coloring process will be covered!
Locate the center of your drawing area and lightly draw an oval shape. Here, you can decide on the scale of your own drawing.
ADD THE LEAFY CROWN
When drawing the leafy crown, be sure to sketch it with spikes and to make it quite tall, but not taller than the actual body of the pineapple.
Use your lightly sketched oval to guide you when drawing the outline for your pineapple.
Be sure to sketch the outline with some spikes.
Between each line, add the braces and spikes to create texture. Draw these lines one at a time.
Using the construction lines that were drawn in step 2, sketch the bottom stem with individual leaves, right underneath your crown.
Above the bottom stem leaves which you have just added, continue drawing larger and less curved leaves around the tall crown.
ADD TEXTURE TO
Within both the crown leaves and stem leaves, start to draw several fine lines in each leaf.
Don’t forget any leaves at this stage!
apply the 1st
coat of color
Select a shade of paint that falls between the
and yellow, and evenly paint the main body of your pineapple.
Using a small soft brush, take your light green paint and lightly add some tone around each brace of your pineapple’s body.
APPLY THE 2ND
COAT OF COLOR
Using a small soft brush, select an orange or light brown color to lightly blend each brace that you added shading earlier.
With a soft brush, use some white paint to fill in the spikes on the pineapple’s body. After, lightly blend several dots and lines of dark purple within these spikes.
color the crown again
Return to your leafy crown. With a soft brush and some dark green paint, gently add a darker shade to the inner part of the crown’s leaves.
Once your second coat of paint is dry, we will be applying our very last coat of color to your pineapple’s crown.
With a soft brush and black paint, apply some shading between each layer of leaves in the crown to create a realistic shadow between each leaf.
FINISH UP THE
In the final step, you will be using a fine sharp brush and the corresponding colors for each section to trace the outline of your entire pineapple drawing.
