Step 1 – Draw the onion shape

Before you start drawing onions, make sure to leave enough room at the top of the page for the leaves.

Start by drawing each side of the onion. They don’t have to be perfectly symmetrical, but try to make them as similar as possible.

Step 2 – Add the upper and lower parts of the bulb

Now, close the “gaps” on the top and bottom of the onion. The top where onions turn to leaves tend to be quite uneven. Draw the area as a set of randomly sized pointed blocks.

Close the gap below where the roots grow with just a zigzag line.

Step 3 – Draw the leaves

Grows from the top of the bulb, drawing leaves. Start by drawing ones in front and then drawing protrusions from behind them.

To make the onions look like, try and fan the blades out fairly evenly in different directions.

Step 4 – Draw the roots

Slightly similar to the rooted leaves. Make these leaves wobble a little more then to the leaves where some wave-shaped roots bend in one direction and then the other.

Again draw the roots in front and then add the partially hidden roots behind them.

Step 5 – Finish Drawing the line

To complete the straight line drawing, add a few curves along the onion and give it the signature look of the onion. Then go through it with darker pencil lines, black markers, or highlighters.

Step 6 – Coloring the onion

To give the onion color, you can make the bulb golden brown and the leaves yellow / green. Leave one or two white spots on the bulb for a highlight (where light is reflected from the shiny surface of the bulb).

If you’re coloring with paint, you can mix some orange, brown, and yellow to get the shade of the bulb. If you’re coloring with a pencil, you can do the same thing by repainting your drawing with multiple layers of color. Also remember not to press too hard on the pencil when coloring, otherwise the original layer may become darker to mix color with the rest.
