Hello everyone! It’s with new drawing tutorial in which we will teach you how to draw pancakes. Pancakes are spread almost all over the world, though called differently – injera in Africa, serabi in Indonesia, okonomiyaki in Japan, blinchiki in Russia and etc. Today we are going to draw classic stack of pancakes. So, let’s start the tutorial and learn how to draw pancakes.

Step 1

First draw a wide and short cylinder. You can draw the cylinder higher or lower – it depends on the number of pancakes in the stack. Note that in the first steps you should use light and smooth lines for the general outlines.

Step 2

Using curved lines sketch out the contours of pancakes in the stack. Try to draw all the lines about the same distance from each other. Sketch out a plate under the stack. It looks like two figures – broad and flat rim and a short bottom.

Step 3

Draw the contours of each pancake – they do not have to be smooth and symmetrical. The edge of each pancake should be wavy and does not coincide with the contours of pancakes below and above.

Step 4

Darken the lines of pancakes and plate. On the top draw the contours of the darkest areas of the upper pancake – they are of different size and extend in different directions, but they all have an oval and rounded shape.

Step 5

In order for our pancakes look more realistic, add some shadows. First we need to determine the light source. As you can see, the light comes to this delicious stack of pancakes from the top right side. So we will add shadows to the lower left side.
