We’ll begin by drawing the stem first and then moving onto the pepper itself. The stem is joined to the pepper in such a way that it looks like a crown shape.

The top of the pepper is wider than the bottom where it narrows to a point at the end.

Now that we have a good understanding of the basic structure of a hot pepper, we can get started on our drawing.

Steps For Drawing A Hot Pepper

Step 1

Draw two lines that curve downwards and draw a small circle at the very top of those two lines. This is the beginning of the stem.

Step 2

Join those two lines by drawing a U shape as done over here. Then, on either side, draw two lines that shoot out.

Step 3

You’ll then want to draw a wavy line of sorts that resembles this example above. This will be the crown that wraps around the hot pepper.
