How to draw a schoolbag

The schoolbag is in fact not much different from the usual backpack, which we have already drawn in one of the previous lessons. But many of our readers asked us to make a lesson about how to draw a schoolbag, and we created it. The lesson will be very simple, but in the end we will get a fairy realistic and technically beautiful backpack drawing.


Step 1

Just like in the lesson about the backpack, we need to sketch the outlines of the schoolbag using very light lines. The lines must be made light so that in subsequent steps it will be easier to make changes to the drawing of the backpack.

Step 2

Now we sketch out a pocket in the front and shoulder straps in the back. In the second stage, all lines should also be very light, even almost transparent.

Step 3

Circle the front surface of the school bag with clear and dark lines. Draw out the pocket and a long zipper. Using an eraser remove the unwanted lines from the front of your backpack drawing.

Step 4

Add pull tabs of the zipper, a zipper on the pocket, some folds and lash tab (yes, this diamond-shaped thing on bags is called a lash tab).

Step 5

Now trace the back of the school bag, straps and draw a handle at the top of the bag. Add a couple of seams and folds. Remove all remaining guidelines from your school bag drawing.

Step 6

The last step is traditional for Drawingforall.net – we add shadows with the help of dense hatching. Put the shadows on the areas shown in our schoolbag picture below.

As we have already said, drawing a lesson about how to draw a schoolbag is very similar to the way we drew a backpack. Write to us about what problems you encountered when you drew the backpack, so that our next drawing lessons were even more perfect, clear and understandable.
