- Sketching Pencil
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Marker
- Colored Pencils or Crayons
🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.
How To Draw Pizza Slice Step By Step
1. When you have a New York slice in your hands, it’s almost always these two things: triangular and HUGE! So let’s start drawing a big, long triangle with a steep, pointed end and a shorter wall on the opposite side. This triangle will become the bed of yummy cheese.
2. It’s not a pizza without the crust. On the short side of your pizza, draw the crust starting with small arches on the top and bottom. Next, connect the two arches on the pizza slice with a slightly curved line running parallel to the short side of the triangle.
3. The pizza is taking shape but needs a bottom crust. The bottom crust looks almost like a half-drawn spoon already so mirror the bottom of the triangle until it looks like you have a full spoon shape that has a flat handle with a rounded head at the end.
4. The best part of making a pizza to me is decorating it with toppings. And that’s what we’re doing! I love myself a good pepperoni classic so draw a small round circle inside the triangle.
5. Next we’re going with ham slices. Draw a ham square next to the circle within the bounds of the triangle shape.
6. Let’s kick up the toppings with more pepperoni circles, squares, and triangles. There are no rules now – you can add button mushrooms, mini round sausages, or dice cut rectangular pineapples and more.
7. Woah! That’s a nice slice of ZA already! Let’s hit it with some color: a golden yellow crust, smooth mild yellow cheese, and toppings in red, orange, pink, green, sunny yellow…that’s up to you!
