How To Draw A Belly Button

Ready to purse your passion as an aspiring artist? Drawing a belly button is a perfect place to start! Drawing a belly button is actually quite simple and not intimidating at all, once you get the hang of it. To draw a perfectly rounded belly button, all you’ll need are a few tools: a pencil, some paper, a ruler, an eraser, and some courage!

Understanding The Basics:

Drawing a realistic belly button may seem daunting at first, but don’t fret – it’s doable. To begin, sketch a small, light circle with your pencil. As all belly buttons are unique and vary in size, don’t worry too much about making the circle perfectly symmetrical. Depending on your artistic vision, you may add curves, dips, or grooves in the circle.

Dimensions And Shading:

Now for the fun stuff! Draw a horizontal line crossing the initial circle in the center, then assign it a dimension. A good starting point is to draw the line in a length of 1.5 centimeters. Once you’ve drawn the midline, note the height and be sure to add the same dimension on the other side. To make the belly button look realistic, try and add a slight outlining. For better results, add a grading of shadows. To make the belly button pop, add an extra shading to emphasize the depth and shadows. This will will help you to bring your artistic sketch to life!

Finalizing Appearances:

Now it’s time to perfect the appearance of your belly button. First draw another line on the same midline but inside the shape. This will be the highlight of your belly button. Make sure the line is done with minimal pressure, as it needs to appear light and subtle. Last but not least, use your eraser to tidy up and refine your drawing. Enjoy the end result of your amazing draw!

Put Your Skills To The Test:

Now it’s time to practice your newfound skills! Decide on the shape or pattern of your belly button – do you want it to be a simple circle or something more creative? Keep sketching until you achieve the desired effect. You can choose to draw something abstract, like a flower or a heart, or something realistic and round. Each one will look spectacular even with the smallest of touches!

Real-Life Inspiration:

What better way to draw a belly button than real-life inspiration? Take a look around your family or friends and find a belly button to use as a model. Observe its shape, size, and shade to get a full understanding. With a little practice and patience, you can start to recreate your own realistic belly buttons in no time!
