Is your goal to showcase your study area through a drawing, but you find yourself struggling to sketch a decent table? Are you looking to add depth and perspective to your drawing by incorporating captivating desks?
Our comprehensive guide, filled with step-by-step instructions and inspiring ideas, will equip you with the skills to draw your own tables. Whether you prefer simple lines or three-dimensional versions, this article will serve as your starting point, enabling you to effortlessly draw any kind of table you desire.
Drawing a Table: Step by Step
Tables consist of two main components: the face and the legs. The face of a table can come in various shapes, depending on its functionality and aesthetic purpose. You have the freedom to choose the shape that resonates with you.
When it comes to the legs of the table, if you want to keep things simple and minimalistic, two legs will suffice. However, if you’re up for a challenge, consider drawing a table with visible perspective, showcasing all its legs.
Step 1: Drawing the Table Face
The table face is the starting point. Begin by drawing two types of table faces: square and round.
To determine the dimensions of your table, visualize or draw two axes (represented by red lines).
- A flat table with a square, rectangular, or circular face can be drawn using perpendicular axes.
- Alternatively, if you wish to create a table with perspective, where the sides lean in a specific direction, you can draw a parallelogram or an ellipse.
Step 2: Creating the Table Shape
Now it’s time to bring your table to life:
- Draw two parallel lines of equal length and connect them to form the table face.
- The four legs should form a box shape when connected to the face. Replicate the face shape for the legs and join the two shapes at their edges to create the table legs.
Step 3: Drawing the Leg(s)
Get creative with different types of table legs. You can position four legs at the corners or opt for a single leg placed in the middle of the table.
Step 4: Adding Thickness to the Table
For your table to exude the sturdiness of a real-life table, both the face and the legs need to have some thickness.
- Add thickness to the table face by drawing parallel lines just below the original face shape.
- For the legs, draw parallel lines along the edges.
- Finally, erase any unnecessary lines that are not visible to complete the table.
Step 5: Adding Delightful Details
A table isn’t complete without a touch of charm. Consider adding apples, books, cups of tea, or any other elements that will bring the table to life and make it visually appealing.
Adding the Finishing Touches
Once you’ve mastered the basic table drawing, it’s time to add extra elements to enhance the overall vibrancy of the picture. Experiment with color, using bright and dark shades of the same color to showcase different angles of the table. Additionally, don’t forget to incorporate shadows behind the chair and table to give your drawing depth.
