How to Draw an Ice Cream with Many Scoops

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. And it’s a fact that I love milk. So, in this post, I thought I’ll teach you how to draw a cute ice cream with many scoops.

This is such a great kid’s project! And these make adorable stickers.

I already have another post on drawing an ice cream with sprinkles here.

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 first

Let’s start by drawing the cone first – so please draw this at the bottom of the page, because the ice cream scoops will be on top of the cone.

We are just going to draw an inverted triangle as the ice cream cone.

1 - draw the triangle cone

Next, we’re going to draw the cross-hatch pattern on the ice cream cone.

2 - draw the lines on the cone

You can then draw the dribble of the first scoop on the cone.

3 - draw the dribble

Next, draw the first scoop.

I’m not going to draw the top of the scoop because we will draw more scoops on top of this one.

4 - draw the scoop

Next, we’ll draw the melting dribble of the second ice cream scoop on top of the first scoop.

5 - draw the dribble of the scoop

Next, draw the second scoop.

Remember, the scoops need not be uniform – a little imperfection actually looks good in a drawing!

6 - draw the second scoop of the tower

And now, we’ll draw the last scoop. You can draw more scoops if you’re feeling adventurous.

I’m going to end it with 3. I’m also going to draw the third scoop slightly unbalanced. So, the dribble will be at the corner of the second scoop.

7 - draw the third dribble of the scoop

Next, I’ll add the last scoop slightly topsy turvy – doesn’t this look cute?

8 - draw the last scoop

Next, I’ll add faces on the scoops – this step is optional – I just want to make the ice cream look more fun and kid-friendly!

9 - draw the faces on the scoops

Now, we’ve finished drawing the milk carton – let’s color it!

Step 2: Color the ice cream cone

You can color the cone any color you want – I am going to use the traditional biscuit brown color since that’s my favorite.

10 - color the cone

Next, I’ll color the scoops different colors – I’m adding strawberry, mint, and chocolate. You can color the scoops any color you like – use your imagination!

I’m also going to add blush spots to the ice cream.

11 - color the scoops

Next, I’ll add little shiny spots at the side to make the ice cream look smooth and creamy. This is optional of course.

12 - add shine and gloss to the cones

And we’re done!

We’ve just learned how to draw an ice cream with many scoops!

A sketchbook, Photoshop, and a graphic tablet so that you can draw the kawaii characters. If you want to make stickers, you’ll need a printer and sticker sheets.
