How to Draw a Jewel (drawing tips)

Step 1

drawing a jewel

A jewel is one of those tricky things to draw. You look at the finished drawing and it’s hard to know where to begin. Well, there are no fixed rules for this. But I will show you one way to draw a jewel in this example. Begin your jewel doodle by drawing an upside-down triangle in the middle of your page.

Step 2

Now visualize drawing a large triangle on the outside of the triangle you drew in step 1 above. Notice the size of this triangle and the angles of the lines shown within the example.

Step 3

Above these triangles, let’s now draw several smaller triangles. Some of these triangles will be upside-down, while others will be the right way up like a pyramid. Then use a straight line through the top middle to connect the triangles.

Step 4

To give our jewel 3-dimensions, draw an arc shape right at the very top as shown within the example.

Step 5

Add the finishing touches to your jewel doodle by giving it some color. You will notice how three shades of blue have been used here. This is to give us the impression that our jewel has a reflective surface. Subsequently, each side of our jewel is reflecting the light in a different way. And there you have it. This is our jewel doodle. I would, however, like to challenge you to draw your jewel again in a slightly different way. The end result might be exactly the same, but how you got there might be a little different.
