Steps For Drawing A Candle

Step 1

Step 1

To begin your drawing, simply start by drawing two parralel lines as such. They don’t need to be perfectly straight lines but you can use a ruler if you do want it to be so otherwise it’s totally okay for these lines to be uneven as long as they are generally the same height.

Step 2

At the bottom of these two lines, draw a slightly curved line to join them together.

Head over to the top of the candle and draw a curved line around the lines to create a shape like this.

You can use an eraser to leave a few gaps in this shape.
