How to Draw a Watermelon

Simple steps in drawing a watermelon.


  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Coloring material


Step 1: Draw the Watermelon

Plain circle, first step in drawing watermelon.

The first thing that you need to do is to make an outline of the overall shape of the watermelon. Draw a big round shape in the center of your paper. If you have a hard time drawing this, then, you can find an object to trace and get the perfect shape of your watermelon.

Step 2: Add the Stipes

Second step in drawing watermelon.

This time, all we must do is follow the patterns of the print of the watermelon. Draw a curved line from the top of the watermelon going down. The distance between each curve line must be observed. You can also do the zigzag line since some watermelon has zigzag patterns. 

Step 3: Add Details

Adding detail to watermelon pattern.

Now, let’s add details to your watermelon. Draw more curved lines to the skin of the watermelon but make sure that the distance and the cleanliness of your drawing are always observed. After that, add a small circle on the top and then a short stem in the middle of the circle.

Step 4: Add the Stem and Remove Lines

Adding stem and removing extra detail of the watermelon.

Before anything else erase the lines inside the circle that is found on the top of the watermelon. After that, add one more curved line on the stem to see it clearly. Then enclose the two curved lines with a short horizontal line.

Step 5: Add Details

Fifth step in drawing a watermelon.

To make it more real, Let’s add details to the stem. On the top of the stem, draw a small oval shape. Then after that, erase the line in the center. Make sure that you didn’t include the important lines to the stem and the oblong that you added earlier.

Step 6: Add a Slice of Watermelon

Adding slices to the watermelon.

Begin sketching with the basic outline of a 1/4 slice of watermelon. This should look like a semicircle that is connected by a horizontal line at the top. The half part of the sliced watermelon will overlap with the whole part of the watermelon.  

Step 7: Remove Extra Lines

Removing extra lines on the watermelon.

The next thing that you need to do is to carefully erase the lines inside the sliced watermelon. Do not include the important lines to your watermelon. Erase the line properly because later we will add detail to it.

Step 8: Draw the Rind

Drawing the rind for the watermelon.

For this really simple step add the rind by making a line that pretty much that follows the outer shape of the slice. Just simply draw a semicircle inside the sliced watermelon. Just be careful not to draw it too thick or too thin to look good.

Step 9: Add the Seeds

Drawing seed on the watermelon.

As we all know watermelon has a lot of tiny seeds inside it. Now, draw a small teardrop shape inside the sliced watermelon. Arrange them in between the rind and the upper/middle of the pulp. The tipping point should be facing the center of the slice.

Step 10: Finish up!

Final step in drawing watermelon.

Almost everything is already in place, but before anything else trace your drawing with a black pen or a marker. After that, start coloring your watermelon with the following colors, green, yellow-green, red, and black. Then you’re done! congratulations!
