How to Draw a Peanut
In this tutorial on how to draw a peanut, we’ll draw some peanuts of different shapes to show the different looks of a peanut. To do this, we’ll first draw some peanuts that aren’t in their shells before we draw the shelled variants. These are drawn as rounded shapes with sharp points on edge.
We’re going to draw three of these peanuts, and the left one will be in the middle. Finally, before moving on to the next step of the guide, you can draw a wavy line across these exposed peanuts. This forms the base for the shelled peanuts we’ll draw soon. Then you are ready for the second step of the guide!
As you continue your peanut drawing, we will draw more outlines for the shelled peanuts you started in the previous step. Above this wavy line you drew, add three rounded shapes for the peanuts in this bowl.
The reference image will help you place these shelled peanuts. Once you’ve drawn these three peanuts in the shell, you can outline the surrounding shell. That’s all for this step, and you can move on!
In this third step of our tutorial on drawing a peanut, you will finish the inner rim of the peanut shell containing the three peanuts you drew in the last step.
Using two wavy lines, we’ll create a border around the bottom edges of the three in-shell peanuts, and you can do this by carefully drawing the lines around them. Once this border is drawn and looks like our reference image, this shell outline is complete, and we can move on to the other peanut shells in the next few steps.
In this fourth step of the tutorial, we’ll add more peanut shells to your peanut design. The first is leaning against the other you drew, so it’s half open. This peanut contains only two compared to the previous peanut’s three. Besides that difference,
it looks very similar to the previous open peanut you drew. Then we draw another peanut shell, but unlike the others, this one will be completely closed. You can draw this peanut with a curved line to create the shape we show in the reference image. So we will add some final details in the next step!
To complete the final details of this tutorial on how to draw a peanut, let’s add some texture to the outer shells of the peanuts. If you’ve ever seen a peanut shell, you know that the outer surface of the peanut shell has a rough, segmented texture. This is the type of texture we’ll draw on the outer shell before we colorize your image in the next step.
To draw this texture, we’ll draw several rounded shapes to create a pattern on the rough outer edge of the shells. After drawing these patterns, your picture is ready to be colored! Will you add a background or draw other goodies to complete this peanut scene?
Now you can complete your peanut design by adding color. We opted for a more realistic and muted color scheme in our reference image. To do this, we used darker shades of brown for the peanuts and different tints to make them look shinier.
Then we used lighter shades of brown for the outer shells to enhance the textured look further. Will you use colors similar to those we’ve chosen, or will you choose unique colors instead? You can also create great variety by changing your artistic tools and mediums, so have fun creating!
