Banana Drawing Reference

Here is the banana that we will draw together.

As you can see, it is a banana that is peeled halfway and this little detail is what we will focus on.

To give you an idea of how we will go about drawing this banana, we’ll start by sketching out the banana itself and then move onto drawing the peels.

Steps For Drawing A Banana

Step 1

This drawing is quite simple.

You’ll want to begin by drawing a curved line in an angle facing the left side.

Step 2

Then draw another curved line to match the first and make it more narrow at the top.

Once you do this, you have completed the shape of the banana.

Step 3

Now it’s time to draw the peels. At the bottom of the banana, draw two curved lines to create a shape that resembles a leaf.

Step 4

Draw a shorter line that connects to the peel so that you can see the way the peel turns.
