5 Easy Steps to Draw a Baby wrapped in a Blanket

Step #1. Getting Drawing Materials

The first thing you need to do when you want to draw a baby wrapped in a blanket is to get all the drawing materials you need. These include your Drawing Stand, Drawing Paper, pencil, eraser, sharpener, crayons and other drawing materials you feel will be needed in the course of the drawing. 

As an artist, you should make it a habit of planning before you start drawing. This entails thinking through the task before you, writing down the required tools needed to complete the job, and then making sure everything is ready before you draw.


Step#2. Outline Your Drawing

Next, on your drawing sheet, create an outline where you intend to draw on the paper. You have to use a ruler to make two Vertical lines at the two sides and two Horizontal lines at the top and bottom of the sheet. This will give you a mental focus on where to place the baby when you begin drawing.

Step #3. Start Drawing

Next, make a round shape at the top side of the outline you have created, this round shape is the baby’s head and we will complete the head as we progress with our drawing. You have to draw this using your very sharp pencil. Hope you are enjoying the flow?

 The next thing you need to do is to complete the round shape you made in the last step into the face of a baby. Are you thinking of how this can be done? Well, it is not difficult, draw the eyes, the nose, and the mouth and then include the ears. 

When doing this, picture a baby in mind and try to make the face look like a baby’s face. You have to be careful at this stage by making sure the baby’s face that you are drawing has a resemblance to that of a baby.

After doing this, you need to draw the baby’s hair. You need to use your dark pencil to show this effect. The Hair should be drawn in such a way that it will show that the hair is a bit curly just like we know that of a baby. That shouldn’t be hard I guess!

Now, it is time to draw the Sketch for the Blanket. To draw this, you simply need to make an irregular cylindrical shape around the drawn ‘head of the baby’. The length of this sketch depends on how long you want the blanket to look like.


Step #4. Do finishing touches on the Drawing

Next, create a design to make the drawing look realistic. You need to draw it in such a way that it appears as if the baby is covered by the blanket except for the head. You can then apply your painting using your crayons. 

The color you use depends on the type of blanket you want to draw. If you follow all my steps, you should get something close to this
