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

Step 1

So, first of all, draw a horizontal line running through the center of the base of the cone. Next, from the center of this line, draw a long vertical line that will be the center axis of the cone. It is very important to understand that these are only the preparatory phases, meaning that all the lines created here are barely visible.

Step 2

Now depict two lines starting at the end of the vertical line and going out to the sides and connected to the horizontal line at an equal distance. Note that the project you describe must be as balanced and homogeneous as possible.

Step 3

This stage will be a little more difficult. Use very smooth lines to depict the bottom part of the cone, which looks like an ellipse. The front, which is the cone we see must be darker than the part hidden from our view. To check the symmetry of a sketch, look at it in the mirror.

Step 4

Now, with the help of an eraser, let’s get rid of all the unnecessary structures we created in the first stage. If you find the cone looks uneven, carefully correct where necessary. If everything looks correct, then move on to the next stage where we will start to paint shadows.

Step 5

As in the case of balls and cubes, shadows must be applied taking into account the contours and shape of the cone so that this geometry looks three dimensional. To learn how to accurately depict shadows, visit the light and shadow article on

So dear readers of, the tutorial on how to draw the cone has been completed. Check that your artwork looks similar to what you see below. If you made any mistakes, correct them by going back to the point where you made them.

So if you’ve got everything right, and your cone drawing looks great, don’t rush everything and start doing other things. To be able to draw like a true artist, you need to practice a lot and often. Draw cones from different angles and in different lights. For no difficulty drawing, you can buy a plaster cone or made from a piece of paper.
