I love drawing cute food!
It’s an excellent project for kids if you want them to see vegetables in a new light.
You can check out my other kawaii tutorials here.
In this post, I’m going to show you how to draw a beetroot (easy), and this tutorial can be followed by adults or kids!
The beetroot is a beautiful vegetable to draw and color because of its bright purple color and its vibrant green leaves!
I’ll even show you how to color the beetroot, and you will get something like this at the end of the tutorial:
But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.
How to draw a Beetroot – Easy Step by step instructions for Kids
We are going to start with the beet’s body first.
Let’s start by drawing a simple circle. No biggie!
Now, I’m going to draw a big flat line near the top of the circle – make it a little curved because beetroots aren’t completely flat at the top.
Next, draw a triangle using the line as one side of the triangle.
It still needs to be slightly curved, so draw the triangle sides with long curves like this:
The end of the triangle needs to be sharp and pointy.
Now, we need to draw the tail of the beet or the little root at the bottom. So, I’m just going to draw one small wriggly shape at the bottom of the beetroot.
Now, I’m going to clean up the lines a little bit and just make the top part of the beetroot more curved.
See how I’m doing this:
Next, we have to draw the leaves.
I’m going to draw the midribs of the leaves first, so just draw 3 simple lines and branch them out into small little lines like this:
Easy, isn’t it?
Next, it’s time to draw the leaves.
Draw the middle leaf first – each leaf has curly edges so focus on drawing little waves like this till you complete the leaf.
Then move on to drawing the remaining leaves.
Now, you’ve finished drawing a beetroot.
But whenever I draw little food and cute drinks, I like to add a small face to it to make it look more adorable!
So, I’m going to kawaii up this beetroot and add 2 small round eyes and a U-shaped mouth to my beet.
It’s not hard; just do this:
And now, we’ve drawn a cute beetroot.
Let’s move on to coloring it.
Beetroots are a dark shade of purple or mauve. So, I’m going to color the beetroot and add some dark spots to its body as well!
I’m also going to add 2 cute blush spots on the beetroot to make it look more cute.
Next, I’ll color the leaves green in color!
You can vary the shades of green to make the beetroot look more colorful!
And we’re finished!
We’ve just learned how to draw and color a cute beetroot easily!
