How to draw a Measuring tape

Please see Measuring tape drawing tutorial in the video below

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

Step 1: Draw the main body of the tape measure

Start by drawing a straight horizontal line. This will be the basis for your tape measure.
Add two small perpendicular lines at each end of the horizontal line to represent the metal ends of the tape measure.

Step 2: Draw the ribbon

From the left end of the horizontal line, draw a slightly upward curve to represent the start of the ribbon.
Continue drawing a curved line, but make it progressively straighter as you move away from the body, just like you did in the previous drawing.

Step 3: Create Shell

Draw a large, spiraling scalloped shape above the ribbon. Start with a small circle near the top left corner of the tape measure, then draw a spiral line that gradually widens outward.
The case can be as simple or detailed as you like, with a variety of curves and patterns.

Step 4: Add details to Shell

Inside the shell, draw curved lines to indicate the spiral pattern. These lines will radiate from the center of the shell.
Add small dots or circles along the spiral lines to show off the texture of the shell.

Step 5: Complete the tape measure

Draw a small circle at the end of the ribbon to represent the metal button.
Add a curved line above the tape to indicate the top edge of the tape measure.
You can also add markings and measurements along the ribbon as well as any additional details or decorations on the case.

Step 6: Final steps

Erase any unnecessary lines and refine the shape of your drawing as needed.
Add shadow or color to give your drawing more depth and realism.
Congratulations! You have successfully drawn a tape measure with a seashell design.
Feel free to customize your drawing further by experimenting with different shapes, sizes, and details. Have fun and let your creativity shine!
