Step 3

This step is particularly important. Here we should draw the lines on the pumpkin. Please note – the parts of the pumpkin, which are closest to us, appear much larger and wider than the those, that are farther. Another point – the further the lines are, the closer they are to each other.

Step 4

We work with the stem. Erase extra lines, so it does not seem transparent. Then draw a circle at its tip to designate thickness. Finally, using clear and confident lines draw the stem and outline a few lines inside it. Here draw the bottom of the pumpkin segments.

Step 5

Finish the lesson on how to draw a pumpkin by adding shadows. Note that the light falls on the left of us, then we will add shadows to the right parts of the segments. As you can see, the shadow is very simple – just a normal hatching. The density of the shadow controls the degree of pressure on the pencil.
