How to Draw a Chair
How Do I Draw a Chair?
Hi everyone! Today, you will be learning how to draw a simple dining room chair. You may need to draw one for any number of reasons. Perhaps you are drawing a dining room or tavern scene, which would require having chairs inside. Who knows? It's none of my business, I'm just here to help you out!
1. Draw the Backrest
The lines you will be drawing in this step represent the backrest of your chair. Start out by drawing six horizontal lines stacked on top of one another. It doesn't have to look great, just make them look obviously like lines. You may round the lines slightly if you'd like, as this will add to the overall look of your finished chair.
2. Sketch the Frame
Draw one vertical line on either side of the horizontal lines. These lines will later be used as part of the outer frame and legs of the chair.
3. Add More Lines
Draw in two vertical lines right beside the other two lines and connect them.
4. Draw the Seat
Now that you are finished drawing the top of the chair, you can now start drawing the seat. The seat can come in various looks and can be either round or square like in appearance. In this tutorial, however, the seat will have a round back and a square front.When I drew the seat, it reminded me of the tip of someone's fingernail.
5. Draw the Legs
Next, we tackle the legs! Every chair has four legs. The back two legs connect to the backrest, and the two front legs connect to the seat. Study the image to get a good idea of what I'm talking about.
6. Add Dimmension
Add some dimension to your chair by giving the legs curves and corners. As you can see, the drawing looks less flat and more solid by doing this.
7. Add the Details
The rest is really up to you! You can add some sort of design such as a wooden appearance or some lines on your chair if you want. This drawing is somewhat plain, but it is only intended to give you an idea of the basics!
