Did you know that summer is the growing season for aubergine? Eggplants are also commonly known as “AUBERGINE”. The “aubergines” comes from the ancient language of Sanskrit.  This needs high temperatures to grow.

They have a short growing season and can be harvested 60 days after planting. This fruit can be also prepared in a variety of ways: grilled, baked, boiled, stuffed, and more. This plant is known as the “ King of the vegetable” in India. Aubergine contains 95% of water. Aubergines can have many colors such s white, green, purple, and purple with white stripes.

How to Draw an Eggplant

Drawing eggplant in simple steps.


  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Coloring material


Step 1: Draw the Guide Shape

First step in drawing eggplant.

Begin our drawing by sketching the guide to get the perfect shape of our aubergine. For this step, we will be using an oblong for the guide. To do this, draw a slanting oblong shape on your paper. You can use an object to trace a perfect circle for your aubergine

Step 2: Outline the Perfect Shape

Second step in drawing eggplant.

Now, that we are done with the guide, let’s start drawing the shape of our eggplant inside the guide. For this, just imagine the shape of the monggo seed that’s what it looks like. Begin this by drawing a curved line from the left side of the curve then follow the curved until you reach the opposite side of it. 

Step 3: Remove Extra Lines

Third step in drawing eggplant.

Since we have already done shaping our aubergine, let’s erase the guide to making it. Now erase the upper portion of the guide. Make sure that after erasing some lines the shape of the aubergine is still the same. 

Step 4: Draw the Leaves

Drawing leaves of the eggplant.

To draw the leaves just simply draw first a curved line on the upper portion of the aubergine. This curved line must overlap a little on both sides of the aubergine. This will serve as a preparation for the next step.

Step 5: Add Details to the Leaves

Fifth steps in drawing eggplant.

Let’s shape the upper portion of the aubergine by sketching a curved line from the line that you’ve drawn in step four then drag it up and connect it to the line on the other side of the aubergine. This curved line must draw outside the aubergine shape. 

Step 6: Remove Extra Lines

Sixth steps in drawing eggplants

Removing extra lines from your drawing helps you a lot to improve your drawing skills. You have to remove those lines that are not important. I want you to erase the lines inside the curve lines that you’ve drawn in step five.

Step 7: Add the Stem

Seventh step in drawing eggplant, add the stem.

To add the stem, on the top of the leaves, draw two irregular lines on the top of the aubergine. These two irregular two lines must be 1/2 inch apart. Make sure to start drawing this on the upper portion of the leaves. 

Step 8: Add Details

We are done with the stem, to enclose this stem, we will be using short curved lines. To it. Sketch two short curve lines one from the top of the stem and the other one will be on the bottom part of the stem. 

Step 9: add Details

Ninth step in drawing an eggplant.

Let’s add details to the leaves by making them better. In this step, we will be using a connected up-down stroke. Start doing this from the bottom part of the leaves then, do the up-down stroke until it reaches the other side. Then draw a small circle on the top of the stem.  

Step 10: Remove Extra Lines

Add detail on the eggplant stem

Extra lines need to be removed to see the beauty of our drawing. I want you to erase the lines that serve as the guide in making the up-down stroke. Then, erase the line inside the stem. Be sure not to include the important lines.

Step 11: Finish up!

Final step in drawing an eggplant.

Congratulations! You made it! This time, I want you to color your aubergine. The color that is possible for your aubergine will be: white, purple, and stripes. Pick any color of the given choices but remember the color of the leaves and stem are always green.
