How to Draw a Toilet

While you might think it strange to learn how to draw a toilet, I want to point out that it can be helpful if you're trying to create a bathroom background or a bird's-eye view of a house. Although there are many parts that make up a toilet, I will make this guide as easy to follow as possible. Be sure to have your pencil, paper, and eraser ready before you begin!

1. Draw the Toilet Seat

First, we are going to start on the toilet seat. Draw a circular shape that represents the bowl shape.

2. Complete the Seat

Draw another circle within the circle you have just drawn. This is where the individual will sit.

3. Add an Edge

Next, draw the edge of the toilet seat. Just a simple line underneath the main circle and in the back portion of the seat's interior.

4. Finish the Toilet Bowl

Now that the seat is done, it's time to draw the rest of the bowl. Draw the back bolt of the toilet seat.

5. Add a Lid

The reason for why the back bolt was drawn in the previous step was to add an extension for the toilet seat lid to rest. Draw a basic lid at the top of your toilet seat. Our lid will be opened.

6. Add Dimension

Next, draw a narrow line around the inside of the lid. This just gives the seat a little more dimension than normal.

7. Work on the Bottom

Now that the seat and lid portion are done, it's time to start working on the bottom portion. Draw the bowl as shown.

8. Add Details

Draw the bottom of the toilet. You're almost there!

9. Add the Tank

Sketch out the tank of your toilet. It's the square-shaped box that is located behind the seat.

10. Finalize the Details

Fill in all of the details on the toilet tank, include elements such as the tank lid.

11. Draw the Lever

Lastly, draw in the lever. It's usually located on the right side of the toilet seat.

After that, you are finished! You now have a nice drawing of a functional toilet at your disposal!

      When I said "needed" in my other comment, I meant "had." Just a correction. :) Oh, and I would also like to add that even though my toilet didn't come out the same way as yours did, my teacher could still tell that it was a toilet and I had a lot of fun drawing it. :) Another correction: the word science in science class isn't supposed to be capitalized. :)

      First time I've seen a tutorial on drawing a toilet bowl! Good stuff! The perspective is kinda weird though, especially at the base. From the angle you're viewing from, the base shouldn't be that visible.

      Keep making these awesome tutorials!
