Draw a large circle which will be the fruit’s basis. Use the compass or the round object. Do not press your pencil too hard in order you will be able to erase the line if you will draw it wrong.
Adding the volume
The next stage is adding of the oval, which will give the volume to the fruit. Look at the figure’s position very carefully. Its right side is much more bigger than the left one.
Erase part of the oval
Erase the left part of the oval. We’ve got the outline of the orange’s half.
Separating the orange's peel
Every orange has its peel, of course. It can be clearly seen in a cutaway view. Separate the orange’s peel from its center with the help of the inner circle. Pay attention that citrus peel is quite thick.
Now you need to mark the center, because the orange’s slices will be around it. You can draw two lines in a circle and draw a small circle at their intersection. Draw additional lines barely visible to make it easy to remove them then.
Marking the slices
Divide the inner circle into small triangles from the center.
Decide beforehand how many slices your orange will have, because they all must fit in and they must be of the same size.
Finish to draw the orange's slices
Try to draw the lines approximately of the same size.
If you can’t mark the line as in the instruction, you can do another way: draw horizontal and vertical lines using your ruler. The lines should intersect. Then add two more lines on the diagonal. You will have ten slices in the end.
Correcting the center's form
Orange’s slices start from curves. Connect the center’s lines with the help of the rounded lines in the form of a star.
Slices are not connected with each other. Divide the inner circle along the lines of each circle and round the corners.
Draw the peel's details
The fruit is turned to us in three quarters, so we can notice a small piece of orange’s peel from the other side. Separate it from the inner part as it’s shown in the picture.
Separating the orange's slices
If you look at the orange in a cutaway view, you can see that the slices are separated with a thin white peel. Make the triangles smaller. The distance between them is the same. Don’t forget that the corners are rounded here.
Giving the shape
Circle the slices with the help of the extra lines. It’s better to start circling the sides.
Draw the inner lines very carefully because they should be even and they shouldn’t be in the contact with another parts. You can use the ruler to draw them. They are rounded in the end.
Be attentive in order not to miss anything.
Correcting the inner part
Erase the inner slices which were drawn first. We’ve got the properly drawn orange’s inner part now.
Orange’s peel is not completely orange. Its inner part is white. Separate these layers with the help of the extra circle.
The fruit’s color is orange. You can also use a pale yellow to color the inner layer which separates the orange’s slices.
You can also try to color the orange which has already been drawn. It’s very interesting!
