How to draw a cactus? We must remember that this question is incorrect because of the many different cacti and they also look very different.
We will learn to draw all kinds of cacti over time, and today there are three lessons we draw prickly pear, saguaro and ehinokaktus.
Prickly pear cactus drawing
Prickly pear(opuntia) is similar to fused in a chain green pancakes decorated with a pattern of short spines. However, when the plant gets big, it takes the form of a bush with stems.
Outline the contours of the “pancakes”:
Draw the lines clearly:
Now paint in green and spread thorns:
And here is our final Prickly Pear cactus drawing:
Next, we’ll draw a saguaro cactus.
This cactus resembles a candleholder.
Branches have a ribbed surface and spines along the edges.
The next type of cactus is not long, but spherical.
Echinopsis step by step drawing
Draw a generalized outline:
Draw bundles of thorns along the edges approximately equidistant.
And this pattern on each side:
Don’t forget to add the shadows between the ribs.
Well, you learned how to draw three kinds of cacti.
