How to Draw A Campfire – A Step by Step Guide
Campfires are great for cooking, telling stories, and roasting marshmallows, but it can also be fun to relive some camping memories by learning how to draw a campfire, and if you want to do just that, you’ve come to the right place!
Every campfire needs wood to burn at its base, and this is the first step in learning how to draw a campfire; we’ll be adding more wood to the pile in the next step, so we’re ready to go!
Step 2 – Draw some more of the woodpile of the campfire next
In this step of your campfire drawing, we’ll add some more logs to the woodpile; to do so, draw three more circle shapes between the other two, then extend some more lines inward from those circles, as you did with the others.
Step 3 – Start drawing the fire for this campfire
How to Draw a Campfire: In this section of our guide on how to draw a campfire, we’ll draw the base of the fire’s outline, which will be drawn with curved liens and sharp lines along the sides.
Step 4 – Add some more of the fire outline now
In this fourth step of your campfire drawing, you’ll add to the outline of the fire that you started in the previous step. Unlike the base, which had more round lines than jagged ones, the upper portion of the fire will have more jagged and sharp lines. Then, in the next few steps, we’ll finish the outline of the fire and add some finishing touches.
Step 5 – Next, finish off the outline of the fire
In this step of our guide on how to draw a campfire, we’ll finish off the outline of the fire.We mentioned in the previous step that we’ll be using sharper lines for the upper section of the fire, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing here.To finish off the fire outline, simply draw some more curved and sharp lines to form the thinner tip of the fire.You could also change the orientation and size if you want.
Step 6 – Now, add the final details of your campfire drawing
This step of your campfire drawing will be all about finishing touches, including details for both the fire and the logs, as well as the opportunity to add some extra details and elements of your own that you may like! For the fire, use some more sharp lines to create some shapes layering into each other in the interior of the flame outline.
Step 7 – Finish off your campfire drawing with some color
That brings us to the seventh and final step of our guide on how to draw a campfire: adding your favorite beautiful colors to really finish it off. In our example, we used yellows and oranges for the fire and shades of brown for the wood, but these are just suggestions; feel free to use any colors you like!
