How to Draw Glasses – Let’s Get Started!
To begin this guide on how to draw glasses, we shall be starting with the frames of the glasses.
Specifically, we shall be doing the left-hand side in this particular step. The sides of the glasses will be made of some curved lines along with some straighter ones on the side as well.
Be sure to leave a small gap at the upper right corner of the glasses as we will be adding the bridge of the glasses there.
Step 2 – Draw the right-hand side of the glasses
In this step of your glasses drawing, we shall be drawing the bridge and the right-hand side of the glasses frames.
For the bridge, you can simply use two curved lines coming out from the left-hand side of the frame.
Then, you can draw the right-hand frame, which will look identical to the one that you drew in the previous step.
That will give you a nice set of matching frames for your glasses. Once that’s done, it’s on to the next step!
Step 3 – Now, draw the first temple of the glasses
The thin part of glasses that extend from the frame and over your ears are called the temples, and we shall draw the first one now.
The first one will extend from the left-hand side of the glasses, and will be drawn with some curved lines to create the thin temple of the glasses drawing.
It will curve especially sharply at the end for the part that will go over the ear.
Step 4 – Next, draw the second temple of the glasses
You have drawn one temple for your glasses, so you should have no problem drawing another in this step of our guide on how to draw glasses.
Simply draw the other temple on the right-hand side exactly how you did in the previous step to finish the temples up.
Finally, you can draw some extra lines along the sides to give the appearance of thickness for the glasses.
Step 5 – Now, you can draw the lenses and final details
Before we move on to the final step of your glasses drawing, we have just a few more details to add.
The main thing is to add the lenses of the glasses. These will be drawn by using some squares that have rounded corners inside the frames of the glasses.
Then, as you can see in the reference image, there will be just a few more lines inside the temples to finish off the details of the glasses.
Now that you have added these final details, you can add some of your own before moving on to the final step.
There are plenty of fun ideas you could use to put your own spin on this drawing. One thing you could do if you’re feeling extra creative would be to draw a face wearing the glasses.
Perhaps you could draw a self-portrait to show yourself wearing them!
You could also draw some clips or accessories on them, or draw them on a table with some other objects. How will you finish your glasses drawing off?
Step 6 – Finish off your glasses drawing with some color
Now that you have finished your glasses drawing, you can bring your drawing to life with some beautiful colors!
For our reference image, we used some light blue to color it in. That is just one of many options at your disposal to color in your picture, so you should really let your creativity run wild!
Glasses can come in any color you can think of, so this is a great opportunity to use some of your favorite bright colors for your picture.
Once you have decided on the colors that you would like to use, you can have some fun deciding which art mediums you will use to make them pop.
If you want a more muted image, then mediums such as watercolors or colored pencils can be a great option.
If you want to go the other way and have some bright and vibrant colors, then something like acrylic paints or colored pencils would be a great bet.
If you drew a background or any extra elements for your picture, then don’t forget to color them in as well!
