Draw Hyperrealistic Strawberry | Step-by-step Tutorial
So you’ll be needing these 3 types of pencils A Darker grade pencil like
7B, 8B or 9B A medium Grade pencil like
4B, 5B or 6B and a lighter grade pencil like
B, 2B OR 3b Now i’m gonna fill this whole outline
with a lighter shade using 3B pemcil I always draw these simple outlines using Grid method Or freelhand (in this case). Now i’m gonna blend this shade using a
Soft Synthetic Watercolor brush Okay, Now Grab your 5B or any
other medium grade pencil and add some darker shades on all these three sides of strawberries and also add some darker shade
here on this upper part Now blend the shade with a dry brush You can also use a mechanical pencil
to remove the texture in this shade I love shading with mechanical pencil
because you don’t have to blend the shades they are already very smooth and perfect Okay lets grab a lighter shade pencil and
add these small circles in this middle portion and add small dots near the edges In-case if you want to draw a strawberry without reference keep in mind that distance b/w 2 consecutive Dots
should be less than 2 circles Or you can follow the reference if you want I’ve uploaded the reference on my website and link is in the discription (as always). Now darken these circles and dots using a darker shades pencil like 7B or 8B Now grab your lighter shade pencil and add some shades around each circle Like thiss !! You can blend these shades using a small brush
or a micro Tortillon. You can click this (i) button here to see how to make a micro tortillon. Now grab a Tombow MONO
or any sharp tip eraser you have and add some highligts b/w Circles and Dots In this Central area, you have to make the highlights more prominent than the corners or sides. which means, you have to add highlights all around a single CIRCLE. and above OR below in case of a Dot.
as you can see in these illustrations.. You can also add some highlights in these seeds,
or i should say, Circles (in this case). Lets erase these extra shades around the strawberry and make it alittle bit smoother. Now lets add a shadow below the strawberry Add base shade using a 3B pencil blend it smoothly and then add a darker shades using 7B or 8B pencil. Moving on to the leaves First you have to fill the leaves with shades. Now grab a MONO Zero eraser and add some random white lines in each leaf. or you can follow the reference if you want. lets make these highlights a little bit smoother.
and remove these random white lines. and Here you go ! I hope you enjoyed this video if you are new to my channel i’d love to have you Subscribed. because i upload new content every wednesday and Saturday.
