How to Draw Mongo in Different 4 Methods:

Methods 1:

Things You’ll Need:

  • Pencil, Eraser, and Sharpener
  • A pen
  • A marker
  • A4 size white paper
  • Water Colour Or Colour pencils

Step 1: Draw two round shapes

Draw two round shapes

The first step consists of drawing two round shapes for the cute eyes of the mango. The following steps will show you how to draw a cute mango. 

On the drawing paper, draw two circles using a compass. Once the circles are drawn, fill them with black paint, leaving some white spots.

Step 2: Add lips and eyebrows

Add lips and eyebrows

You must follow this step if you have followed step number 1. A curved line should be drawn above the round shape you have previously drawn with a black marker. Below the round shape, draw a smiley shape.

Step 3: Draw stalk

Draw stalk

To draw the main parts of mango, you must draw the eyes and eyebrows first. In an upside-down direction, draw parallel lines above both eyebrows with a sharp tip pencil. Close both parallel lines with a straight line.

Step 4: Add leaf

Add leaf

You need to add a mango leaf now. With an 8B pencil, draw a downward curve from the left end of the stalk. Afterwards, join the ending point of that curve line with another curve line.

Step 5: Draw Outline for mango

Now that you have added the leaf of the mango, you should draw the main body of the fruit. On the right side of the stalk, draw a question mark shape. 

Lastly, create a round shape that extends from behind and on the right side of the leaf and connects to the question mark-shaped ending point. 

You can find mangoes in all types of shapes, such as ovals, rounds, hearts, kidneys, and so on. The mango body can also be drawn according to your preferred shape.

Step 6: Add some extra details

Add some extra details

Make all the lines and shapes bold with a black sketch pen. Mangos will be highlighted this way. Detail the mango leaves with micro details now. 

To make this drawing more appealing, you can also add a fruit basket beneath the mango.

Step 7: Fill color In drawing

Your drawing of a mango has been completed successfully, and you are now ready to enhance it. For this drawing, watercolours and pencils can be used.

Method 2:

Step 1: Draw the Outer Shape of the Mango

Draw the Outer Shape of the Mango

Use light pencil lines to draw the mango’s outer shape. Ideally, it should have a shape similar to that of a bean, but with one side having a more pointed tip.

Step 2: Add a Leaf

Add a Leaf

You can draw a leaf on the mango to make it look more interesting. The leaf’s outer shape should be drawn with curved lines. The leaf’s base should be narrower than its tip.

After you draw the leaf, you can simply erase the mango parts that are covered by the leaf.

Additionally, there are two curve lines inside the rib that join in the direction of the tip.

Step 3: Finish the Line Drawing

Finish the Line Drawing

To complete the line drawing, add veins inside the leaf. Draw them from the midrib toward the edges. 

To make the veins look more natural, place a few at random as well. Veins are normally positioned opposite one another, but to make them look more natural, place some at random as well.

Finish the veins by drawing darker lines with a pencil, pen or marker.

Step 4: Color the Drawing

Color the Drawing

To color the mango, fill in the entire piece with yellow. Leaf and bump that it attaches to can be made green or brown.

Using a marker, colored pencil, or paint, you can do this.

Step 5: Add a Red Gradients

Add a Red Gradients

Add a red gradient to one of the manga’s sides to make it look more interesting. You can add this as a gradient beginning with the solid red and fading into the yellow.

You can easily add gradients to your drawings with colored pencils. They can even be added over dry paint.

Step 6: Add a Green Gradient

Add a Green Gradient

Make a green gradient that fades in the direction of the red along the opposite end of the mango as in the previous step.

Method 3:

Step 1: We will learn to draw a mango simple and easy in this article so we can extract a curve like a letter S with our hands.

Method 4:

Step 1: Round is the shape of the fruit we draw. As a result, we start by drawing a round figure in this step.

Step 2: A simple circle will look like a fruit if we add just two parts. We drew two leaves and a stalk in this step, as you can see. As for the other leaf, it is your choice.

Step 3: Draw the sheet in detail. Remove all extra lines from previous steps.

Step 4: We are now adding light shadows. Figure out where the light is coming from and draw shadows where it doesn’t fall. Draw the shadow on the ground that the fruit casts.

Method 5:

Step 1: Make a Construction Drawing of the Mango

Make a Construction Drawing of the Mango

Make a sketch of the mango’s construction. We do this in order to quickly determine the shape of its general proportions.

In this scenario, the proportions will be mainly determined by the overall width, height, and size of the tip in comparison to the wider back area.

Step 2: Make a Line Drawing

Make a Line Drawing

Create an outline drawing of a mango with its shadow inside the construction frame. 

This will result in the mango’s shadow being cast to the right and slightly behind it because the light will be coming from the left and the mango will be slightly to the front.

After you have drawn the outline of the mango, erase the construction lines to make your drawing look like the one in the example above.

Step 3: Apply Basic Shading

Mango drawing shading

You can shade the mango by applying straight lines or lightly curved strokes. To keep them visible, keep a little distance between the strokes.

In this drawing, the light will be coming from the top left and will be slightly in front of the mango. Therefore, the darker areas will appear below and to the right.

Additionally, you may notice that the bottom right of the example has a small light area. The mango is reflecting light from the surface on which it is sitting. 

To achieve a smooth transition between this area and the darker “in shadow” area, only light shading will be applied to this area.

Step 4: Finish the Mango Drawing

Mango drawing

Apply layers of overlapping strokes to smooth out the gradients (transitions from light to dark) of the mango shaded areas and the shadow that it casts on its surface.

As the shadow gets further from the mango, its edges will become blurry. Hence, it will appear softer and natural.
