How to Draw a Pillow

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


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

Step 1 – Draw the Corners of the Pillow

Start by drawing the corners of the pillow. Draw each one of them as some kind of pointed curve with each one pointing in a different direction. Also try and keep them the same size.

The placement of these angles will help define the shape of the pillow, so try and keep that in mind when drawing. For example, you often want the width to be greater than the height.

Step 2 – Draw Each Side

Make a sketch of the pillow by connecting each corner with a curved line as shown above. These lines don’t have to be perfectly symmetrical but like the corners try to keep the curves at the opposite ends somewhat similar. The goal is to create a pillow that looks good without warping or pulling to the side.

Step 3 – Draw some folds and complete the line drawing

To make the drawing just a little bit more detailed, you can add a few folds in the center of the pillow similar to the example above.

Once you have the creases in place and are satisfied with your drawing, you can use a black pen or marker to rescan. If you don’t have one handy, you can simply darken it with a pencil.

Step 4 – Color the Pillow

Pillows are usually plain white and you can certainly leave your drawings that way. However, if the background of your canvas is also white as in the example, you can add a little color to make it stand out.

When pillows aren’t white, they tend to be pretty light in color. An easy way to get these is with watercolor paint or crayons.

In this case, the pillow will be light blue, but some other good colors might be pale pink, green or brown. Of course you can also use other colors if you like. Once done, you will have a complete drawing of a pillow.
