In this drawing tutorial, the team of Drawingforall.net will show you how to draw a bag. As always, this tutorial will be very simple, but in the end, you will get a very realistic drawing of a bag.

The whole difficulty of drawing this object is to give it a realistic look. This should be done by adding folds, seams, and shadows. Also, perspective rules and the ability to work with hatching will help us in creating a realistic drawing.

So, if you are ready, then let’s get down to the lesson on how to draw a bag.


Step 1

To draw a bag correctly, first of all, you should draw its general outline. We remind you that at the first stages you should not press too hard on the pencil. We need all the contours created at the very beginning in order to correctly place the bag on a sheet of paper and indicate its dimensions.

Step 2

Now it’s time to turn the shapeless lines into something more like a bag drawing. Firstly, using a long and smooth line draw the cover of the bag. Next, sketch out a visible buckle and a long strap. The lines should still be light because here we only sketch the location and shape of the bag’s details.

Now do the same operation, but with the belt, that is, using clear and finishing lines, circle this part of the bag. And in the same way, draw the seams using dashed lines.

Now using the same smooth and dark lines, trace over the rest of the bag, giving it a complete look. Draw folds on the side of the bag to give it more realism.

Step 7

So, as we already said, it is the shadows that will help your bag drawing look really voluminous. To add shadows, first define a light source. Then, with that in mind, start adding shadows, moving from the darkest to the lightest. Recall that in our article on light and shadow, we talked in sufficient detail about what shadows are, and how to draw them correctly.
