How to Draw a Carrot

Updated on December 11, 2017


The carrot is an extraordinarily bright orange root vegetable that derived in Europe many centuries ago. Although the most common color for the carrot is orange, it can also be found in various other different colors such as white, yellow and purple. They are one of the most commonly served vegetables in the western world as well.

Today, I will be showing you how to draw a very simple, yet wonderful looking carrot in a matter of just a few minutes. I understand that this is probably one of the easiest things you can possibly draw, I just decided to go along with a carrot for today's hub because I wanted to demonstrate how to draw a more realistic looking carrot instead!

All you need is a pencil and paper in order to begin. I also recommend a very flat surface such as a table, notebook or canvas as well. There are 5 steps in total. :)

Step 1

Firstly, draw the basic shape and outline of your carrot. Thicker at the top and slimmer and pointy at the bottom. Think of it as having an upside down triangular shape sort of.

Step 2

Next, draw the lines that can be found on a carrot. Keep in mind that a carrot is not completely smooth. It has plenty of ridges and gashes all around it. Simple lines drawn all around the carrot will do.

Step 3

In this step, we will be drawing the greens at the top of the carrot. First, start of by drawing the stemmy portion of the greens. They should look long and narrow. Don't worry about the size of the green stems, they can be any length you'd like for them to be. :)

Step 4

Now, you can draw in some basic greens. You don't have to focus so much on the detail just yet. Draw the basic shape and size of your greens first.

Step 5

Lastly, draw in some detail in to your greens. Make them look leafy and somewhat crumpled as far as the detail goes. It will have a somewhat crunchy look at the very top.

Well, that is all! I hope you guys found this tutorial easy. Feel free to write about your experience with this hub down below. Also, be sure to check out some of my other hubs as well. I write a lot of tutorials and constantly draw more all throughout the week. :)

        Although I'm not artistic I think I could master this one by following your instructions. Drawing is fun so I will have to check out your other hubs with instructions.
