You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1 – Basic Apple Shape

Start drawing the apple by sketching its overall shape. In this case, it’s basically a circle.

Step 2 – Apple Sketch

The inside of the circle outlines the basic shape of the apple.

Step 3 – Detail the shape of the apple

Inside the apple’s shape, you can spot any smaller variations like bumps and curves.

At this point, you can also add some shading to indicate the position of the shaded areas.

In this case, the light source is located on the upper left side of the image and slightly behind the apple.

You can also add a drop shadow to make it seem like the apple is actually on the surface.

The shadow is directly facing the light source so in this case the shadow will be on the lower right side of the image towards the viewer.

The shadow for this particular example will be darker towards the subject and will vanish as it gets further away.

Step 4 – Apple Shading

Refine your shade by creating gradients from the darker areas away from the light towards the bright ones.

Keep in mind that if an apple has color variations, then there may be brighter areas within the shaded areas that are simply caused by color variations, not just lights and shadows.

This makes drawing the apple a bit difficult. You must compare the lighted areas with the shaded highlights. Same goes for darker areas.

So, for example if you have a red and green apple, the green in the dark can still be lighter then the red in the bulb. Shade accordingly.
