Today we created the new drawing tutorial for you, in which we will tell you how to draw a cup. It is a pretty easy tutorial, but in the final we should get the realistic cup.

So, let’s start the tutorial!


Step 1

First, depict the contours of the cup and handle, which is very similar to the ear. In the first step, you should draw the cup using very light lines, as we did in our example. We will not use the dark lines in the first steps, so that in subsequent steps it will be easier to erase unnecessary lines and make the necessary changes to the cup drawing.
