How to draw a cute peach step by step

How to Draw a Cute Peach

If you’ve been reading my website for a while, you’ll discover I love food and drawing food even more.

I have recently developed an addiction to drawing food in a kawaii style.

These peaches with their faces will make very good stickers for your planners, your notebooks, or your water bottles!

Drawing this kind of cute food also motivated me to open a sticker shop – details will be out soon!

In this post, I will teach you to draw a cute peach.

I talk more about how I got started with digital art here.

You can use any tool you want to make this drawing because the process basically is the same. You can use color pencils, pens or crayons – it’s completely your choice!

Let’s begin.

Step 1: Draw the outline of the peach

Let’s start by drawing the outline of the peach first.

A peach almost looks like a heart but it’s got a small protrusion at the bottom and is more curved on the top.

So, let’s draw a “C” shape first like this:

Draw a simple curve

Next, we’re going to draw another opposite “C” shape but draw a small protrusion at the bottom. When drawing the “C” shape, remember it doesn’t have to be perfect.

No peach is perfect, and if you draw it imperfectly, it will look more natural and organic.

Draw another curve that is the other side of the peach

Once you’ve drawn the shape of the peach, draw 2 small eyes and a “U” shaped mouth in the peach. This will make the peach look more kawaii and cute.

Draw a small cute kawaii face.

Next, draw the stem of the peach. So, at the top of the peach in the center, just draw a quick line outwards.

Finally, draw 2 small leaves around the peach’s stem.

Draw two small leaves.

Easy, right?

Now, we’ve finished drawing the peach.

It’s time to color it!

Peaches are so much fun to color because they have a beautiful pink-orange-yellow gradient.

They’re a beautiful color.

Let’s move to color the cute peach.

Step 2: Color the peach

We’re going to start with a light peachy pink color for the whole peach like this:

Color the peach

Then I’m going to color the top with a rosier pink and blend slightly using the bonobo brush. You can also use colored pencils if you’re doing this traditionally.

Add some pink highlights to the top of the peach

Next, I’m going to use the same brush and add 2 blush spots right under the eyes of the peach to give it that cute kawaii look.

And we mustn’t forget the deep line on top of the peach.

With a dark rose pink, just draw a small line on top of the peach. This will be the indentation.

Add a midline to the peach

Lastly, color the leaves of the peach a nice green. You can use any green for this.

Add green leaves to the top of the peach

You can leave your peach like this.

Or you can add some highlights to make your peach look more shiney and smooth.

Add highlights and you'll learn how to draw a cute peach.

And voila! We’ve learned how to draw and color a cute peach.
