Hello, dear artists! It’s with a new drawing tutorial in which we will teach you how to draw a hamburger. Hamburger – is a chopped steak, ground meat, minced chicken or other meat product placed in a sliced bun. As a rule, the hamburger toppings include not only the meat. There is usually added onion, lettuce, tomato, cheese, mushrooms or other snacks. Sometimes burgers made of double, triple, quadruple, and so on patties. In today’s tutorial we will draw a hamburger with two patties, cheese, tomato and crisp lettuce. Let’s start the lesson and learn how to draw a hamburger!

Step 5

At the top of the bun draw sesame seeds. Start to add shadows. At first we need to find the light source. In our example, the light comes from the upper right side, so we need to add shadows to the left side o the hamburger. Use light strokes for hatching. And do not forget to add the cast shadow to the surface.
