How to Draw An Ice Cream Cone – Let’s Get Started!
To get this guide on how to draw an ice cream cone started, we shall be starting with the cone part of the equation! This first step will be made much easier if you have a ruler on hand to help you out.
To draw this cone, simply draw two horizontal lines that meet at a slight curve at the bottom of the cone.
This will form the basis of your cone, and we will be adding a lot more detail to it in the next few steps, so let’s move on!
Step 2 – Draw some ice cream on the cone
It wouldn’t be much of an ice cream cone drawing if it didn’t have any ice cream on it! For that reason we shall add some to the image in this second step.
To draw a nice big dollop of ice cream on top of the cone, we shall start with a round, curved line over it.
Then, once you have that top curved line you can add four smaller curved lines underneath it to show that the ice cream is bulging over the rim.
Finally, before we move on to step two you can add a slightly curved line across the top of the cone just under the ice cream to form the top of the cone.
Step 3 – Now, start adding some detail to the cone
We mentioned adding some detailing to the cone in a previous step, so we shall do that in this step of our guide on how to draw an ice cream cone.
For this design, we will be drawing a series of lines going diagonally across the ice cream cone as shown in the reference image. The lines will also go quite closely together.
This step needs a bit of patience and a steady hand, but your patience will be rewarded once the pattern is complete!
Step 4 – Finish the design of the cone
Your ice cream cone drawing is looking great already, but there are just a few more details to add before you can finish it off with some colors.
For this part, we will be finishing the design on the cone itself. You will basically be repeating what you did in the previous step, only reversed this time.
This will result in a sort of cross-hatch design as shown in the reference picture.
This step will also take a bit of patience, but the end result will look really good!
Step 5 – Now, you can add the final details to your ice cream cone drawing
Now your ice cream cone is pretty much done and ready for coloring, so now you can finish off the details in this step of our guide on how to draw an ice cream cone!
This is a step where you can get creative and add some of your own elements if you would like to.
For our example, we used a series of dots to suggest sprinkles and other toppings, but there is plenty you could add to this image.
You could imagine what your idea of the perfect ice cream cone is and recreate it in your drawing.
Maybe you could add some cherries or pieces of candy onto it, and you could also draw a cool background for your ice cream cone.
What toppings and details would you add to your ice cream cone to make it perfect?
Step 6 – Finish off your ice cream cone drawing with some color
That brings us to the final step of your ice cream cone drawing, and it’s a fun step! Drawing the ice cream cone and adding your own toppings and variants is just one part of how you can personalize it.
The colors and art mediums that you choose have a big impact on the feel of your picture, so this is a step where you should really let your creativity flow!
Ice cream cones can come in all manner of bright and beautiful colors, so there’s no limit to what you can do!
You could use some colored pens and bright markers to really make the colors pop! If you’d like a less vibrant image, then you could use some watercolor paints or colored pencils for a more muted look.
If you have some crafts and stickers, then using them as the toppings on the ice cream would help give it a cool 3D look!
Bonus: Add Some Different Kinds Of Ice Cream To The Image
In this guide on how to draw an ice cream cone, we showed you how to draw one of the most popular kinds of ice cream there is. We have all enjoyed a lovely ice cream cone on a hot day, but what of the other kinds of ice cream?
If you’re not done with ice cream after finishing this guide, then you could show off your favorite kinds. This could be done by adding them to this drawing.
Firstly, there are other kinds of ice cream cones if you wish to keep to the cone theme. This could include soft ice cream which will sometimes have something like a chocolate bar or candy cane stuck in.
Then, there are the kinds of ice cream that aren’t technically cream. These would include ice creams that are made of fruity juice.
These would probably be more accurately referred to as popsicles, but we’re including them in the ice cream family. Drawing one of these beside your ice cream cone drawing would be a fun way to add some variety!
Then there are more specialist ice cream variants like ice cream sandwiches. Some ice creams and popsicles are also made to look like popular cartoon characters, and you could draw this as well.
Seeing as this is just a drawing and doesn’t need to obey the laws of gravity, it would be your chance to create the perfect ice cream. It could include all of your favorite foods and be three feet tall if you want!
We would certainly be very interested to see what would be a perfect ice cream cone for you. So the final question we have for you is what kinds of ice cream would you like to add to this drawing?
Do this to take your ice cream cone drawing to the next level
Keep it cool as we show you how to make your ice cream cone drawing even more awesome!
Having an ice cream cone to enjoy is always a wonderful thing, but it gets even better when you add layers! There is only one layer to this ice cream cone sketch, but you could add as many as you like.
In real life, you have to be careful about adding too many layers because it could topple over. Luckily, we don’t have to worry about that for this drawing!
Be sure to add as many layers as you like in order to create your perfect ice cream cone creation.
Another way to enhance your drawing of an ice cream cone even more would be by adding some toppings. This is a matter of personal taste, and you can again make your own personal perfect scoop!
There are some common toppings such as sprinkles, but you could also add a candy bar, some marshmallows and other toppings. What other sweet additions can you think of to add?
It’s great to enjoy an ice cream on a hot day, but there are many other tasty treats to enjoy alongside it. You could add some of these to your ice cream cone drawing!
For some ideas, you could have a soda or maybe even a smoothie. They don’t have to be icy treats, as you could also maybe go for a hotdog or a pretzel.
We gave a few suggestions, but now it’s up to you to show us what you would like to enjoy with this ice cream cone!
Finally, we think you should have some fun with art mediums as you finish up your picture. Ice cream is, as the name suggests, nice and creamy, and you can replicate that.
Paint would be perfect for this, and if you use this then the thicker you can make it, the better. It could also be fun to incorporate some fun crafts to make it even more interesting to look at!
