How To Draw Watermelon Slice 

Ensure you have the following supplies ready:
Pencils: A variety of graphite pencils for sketching and shading.
Erasers: Regular erasers for precision.
Paper: High-quality paper or a sketchbook.
Reference images: Gather images of the character.

 

Step 1 – Sketching the Outline  

  Watermelon Slice Drawing Step 1 

Let’s get our creative juices flowing! We’ll begin by sketching the outline of our tasty watermelon slice. To begin, let’s draw a soft triangle shape. Start at the top and round off the tip. Then, gently bring down a slightly curved line on each side. We want our watermelon to look soft, so those curves are important.

 

Step 2 – Drawing the Bottom

Now that we have the top part, let’s move on to the bottom. We want our watermelon slice to be perfectly shaped, so we’ll round off the corners at the bottom. This completes the outline of our yummy watermelon slice.

 

Step 3- Drawing the Rind

To make our watermelon slice look even more realistic, we’ll draw the rind area. Imagine a curved line. Here’s a fun tip to make it easier: use a point and drag it right across the bottom curve. This helps us follow the shape of the watermelon slice. Now that we have the rind, our watermelon slice is really starting to take shape!

 

Step 4 – Let’s draw the eyes

Now it’s time to give our watermelon slice some adorable eyes! In the center area, let’s draw two circles. But wait, we don’t want them to be complete circles. Remember, our watermelon slice has been cut, so the bottom part of each circle will be missing. Draw a curved line at the bottom of each circle to create that cute cut-off effect. Repeat the same step on the other side of the watermelon slice.

 

Step 5 – Let’s add a sweet smile

Our watermelon slice is already looking super cute, but it needs a friendly smile! Draw a soft curve above each eye, just like eyebrows. And right between the eyes, draw a cute smile that stretches from one side to the other. To make it extra sweet, go up a little on one side of the smile and cap it off. Wow, our watermelon slice is starting to look absolutely delightful!

 

Step 6 – Time for some seeds!

What’s a watermelon without its yummy seeds? Let’s add some seeds to our drawing. In the center of the watermelon slice, draw some teardrop-shaped seeds. One here, another there, and one more over there. And don’t forget to shade them in since watermelon seeds are usually black.

 

Step 7 –  Give our watermelon slice some hands

On one side, draw a slight curve that comes down and bends in. This hand is going to be behind the watermelon’s back. On the other side, let’s draw a hand that’s reaching out. Start by drawing a little curved area for the thumb, then add two ovals for the fingers. Finally, connect the thumb and fingers with a curved line. And let’s make it even more playful by sticking a finger up, just like a number one sign. Our watermelon slice now has hands to show off its cool moves! 

 

Step 8 –  Coloring Your Watermelon Slice

Watermelons come in beautiful shades of red and green. Let’s focus on the outer rind of the watermelon. This part is usually a lovely shade of green. You can use a bright green color pencil or marker to carefully color in the rind, making sure to stay within the lines we drew earlier. Next, let’s move on to the sweet and juicy flesh of the watermelon. This part is the most exciting because it’s a vibrant and delicious red! You can use a deep red color pencil or marker to carefully color in the flesh of the watermelon slice. You can use different shades of green and red to add depth and make your watermelon slice look even more realistic.
