How to draw a burning fire using a pencil

Fire is a symbol that has existed since the beginning of time. Primitive people made fire using improvised things because it was the source of heat, light, security. Also, it was used for cooking and signaling. It was worshipped by many nations, hymns were dedicated to the God of Fire. This is an element that makes a person look at it forever. Tell your child interesting facts and offer him or her to draw a fire and a big flame together. With our step by step instructions, the drawing process will be simple and interesting. Take a pencil and get to work. Good luck!

You need:
1

Basis

To begin with, we offer you to draw the basis of the flame. Place it in the center of the sheet to make the drawing look proportional. The basis of the fire has a teardrop shape.

In the first stages of work, don’t press heavily on the pencil. Then you will need to erase the extra lines. It’s desirable not to leave a trace.

Firewood

Any fire can not be made without dry firewood. Draw them, first schematically, using thin lines parallel to a small distance. Now they look like rays of the sun.

Erase the lines

In the first stage we mentioned that the initial stages of the image are schematic. Erase all unnecessary lines not to allow them to distort the picture and not to allow them complicate the work.
