How to Draw a Donut

In this drawing tutorial, the team of Drawingforall.net will show you how to draw a donut. The lesson is very simple and consists of four steps.

Despite all its simplicity, the donut drawing will be quite realistic, so there will be fairly realistic shadows on it. In addition, you can make it even more realistic by adding more shadows and making the transitions between them smoother.

So let’s get down to the tutorial on how to draw a donut.


Step 1

First sketch out the outlines of the donut in the form of an oval. The donut shape is ready. Since this is the first step, try not to press too hard on the pencil. The lines should be as light as possible so that you can easily make changes to the donut drawing in the next steps.

Step 2

In the center of the figure that we have just drawn we need to draw an ellipse. It will be a donut hole. The lines of this stage should also be performed using really light lines. The donut draft is ready, and starting from the third stage we will start working with the details. If your donut sketch is similar to ours, go to the details.

Step 3

In fact, the donut drawing is almost finished. It remains only to give it a finished look. Draw the outlines of the frosting with smooth, curved lines. Add texture to the donut sketch using a wavy line like in our example. If your donut drawing looks the same as the example from the artists Drawingforall.net, then it’s time to move on to the shadows.

Step 4

So, it’s time to add shadows and make the donut drawing really three-dimensional. But first, add the remaining textures to the lower part of the donun. As in our previous lessons, we recommend adding the shadows using hatching (for example as in the tutorial on how to draw a muffin). Don’t forget the rules of perspective. For example, making the nearer lines darker than the distant ones will give the object a more voluminous look.
