How To Draw A Joint

Ah, the topic of joints. We’ve all heard of joints, we know joint is slang for marijuana, and we want to know how to draw one. Well, fear not, for we have the answer.
First and foremost, you’re going to need the right tools. You’ll need some basic art supplies (pencils, erasers, pens, paper, etc) and the game-changing rolling papers. Rolling papers come in many different sizes and shapes, so choose the papers that best suit your needs. Now you’re ready to roll a joint.
Drawing a joint begins with the famous V-shaped support structure. To create this simple but effective framework, use your pencil to draw a minimum of three points on the paper. Connect the points with two straight lines and you’ve created your first joint. As you become more skilled, you can shape your joints into all sorts of shapes and sizes, or even create your own design.
Once you have the foundation of your joint drawn, you can start to make it look like the real thing. Create tiny ridges between each line that meeting in a V. To make the crease more visible and realistic, you can use your eraser to add highlights and shadows where necessary. For example, if the crease lines meet at a point, you can make lighter lines on alternating sides to indicate the crease’s depth. That will make it look like a true joint!
Next, you’ll need to fill your “joint” with a marijuana-type “tulip.” To do this, use a pencil to draw a few vertical lines at the base of the V-shaped support structure. Now, draw 4-5 horizontal lines that follow the same angle as the vertical lines. Leave a little space between each line so you can fill it with texture later. Lastly, draw a small circle at the end of each line.
Once you’ve drawn your tulip, it’s time to add your finishing touches. Start by adding in some surrounding texture using an eraser. To make the tulip look slightly wrinkled, eraser away some of the horizontal lines. You can also darken some of the shadows further to make it look more realistic. If you want to make the joint look “toothed”, use your pencil to add tiny straight lines in the tulip.
Finally, your joint is ready to be enjoyed. Add colors (if desired) and use your imagination to create a masterpiece that is sure to please the eye and the heart.
Now that you know how to draw a joint, let’s take a look at some more advanced techniques. To make your joint look even more authentic, you can add in small details such as fingerprints or cracks. You can also create a light and heat effect by adding small lines and circles. To make the joint look more like it has been used, draw small circles surrounding the base and add a few stubbed out joints around it.
For an even more complex look, you can even include the mouthpiece and filter of a joint. To do this, draw a few curved lines extending out from the tulip and adding in a few darker circles scattered around to make it look more realistic.
Lastly, let’s take a look at how to make a joint look more aesthetically pleasing. To do this, you can vary the weight of the lines you use by using a thicker line for the ridges and a thinner line for the tulip. You can also draw a few smoke clouds around the outer edges of the tulip to create a more “smokey” look. Or why not add in a cool pattern or design to give it some extra flair?
You can also take the look of your joint to the next level. Add in details such as shadows and highlights to bring the joint to life. Also, try varying the colors used to bring your joint to life. You can use a range of colors to make it look even more realistic and artistic.
No matter what type of joint you decide to draw, with the right tools and technique it’s easy to make your joint look just like the real thing. With practice and patience, you’ll be drawing perfect joints in no time. So grab your art supplies and get your creative juices flowing!
