How To Draw A Croissant (Easy Step By Step Drawing Guide)

I’ve never been much of a bread person (I mean technically, I am gluten-free for most of the time) but if there’s one cheat that I always love, it’s croissants.

Especially croissants that are filled with this creamy chocolate on the inside. Those are literally the best.

But you’re not here to listen to me conveying my love for croissants, you’re most likely here to learn how to draw a croissant.

Good news for you, I have a simple and easy guide that will show you how to draw a croissant in just a few steps.

By the end of this drawing, you’ll be super excited to color it in so that it looks extra special.

All you need is a pencil, a marker to ink your drawing, and a brown color pencil for the end.

Let’s go.


Croissant Drawing Reference

This is the reference that we will use to draw a croissant. It’s a pretty simple croissant to draw and if it’s your first time drawing one, then you’ll particularly enjoy this guide.

Steps For Drawing A Croissant

Step 1

Step 1

To make things easier, we will begin by drawing the middle of the croissant and the rest of the shape will follow thereafter. Begin by drawing this curved shape as I have done here but make the bottom wider than the top.

Step 2

Step 2

Within that first shape you just drew, draw two vertical lines inside of this shape.

Step 3

On the left of the first shape, draw a curved shape next to it. Then add a smaller line within that shape.

Step 4

Draw another curved shape that joins the previous shape and includes a shorter vertical line within this shape. As you can see, the left side of the croissant is completed.

Step 5

We can now move onto drawing the other side of the croissant and you can do this by drawing a curved line that joins to the very first shape we drew.

Step 6

Just like the other side of the croissant drawing, draw another curved line to shape you drew in the previous step. Once you have done this, you can now move on to coloring your croissant drawing.

Alternatively, you can leave this drawing as a line drawing since it looks just as good.


Like I said, learning how to draw a croissant is really that easy and if it’s your first time, I do hope you found this process much easier to follow along to draw a croissant.
