Spring is almost here, and because of that, many of you have asked me to do a tutorial on how to draw Easter eggs. Easter is one of my favorite holidays, so this tutorial was definitely a fun one to do.
Let’s get going!
To draw the basic shape of your Easter egg, draw as perfect of a circle as you can. On top of that circle, draw a rounded triangle which should be about the same height as the circle.
Erase the line running through the middle of your shape, and you should be left with a pretty nice looking egg.
Now comes the fun part, decorating! For the first egg, I’ve chosen to do a striped pattern.
As you can see, the lines move from the left side of the egg, to the right. And to give the Easter egg a little more dimension, I am going to draw the lines widening a little as the reach the other side of the egg.
Continue drawing lines all the way down your Easter egg.
Color them in whatever color you wish. Traditionally, Easter eggs are pastel colored, like light blues, pinks, purples and greens.
Once you’ve gotten your first Easter egg nailed down, repeat the previous steps and try new designs and colors.
To finish your Easter eggs off, draw some grass around them, or draw them in a basket to complete your Easter image!
If you want to design your own Easter eggs, but don’t want to go through the trouble of trying to make a perfect egg shape, use the template on the left.
You can save the template, by right-clicking on the image, and clicking “Save As”. Print it out and design your heart out!
