Since everyone has really liked the Asian style food tutorials I have been submitting, here is another yummy treat that you can add to your drawn plate of Asian cuisine. I will show you "how to draw dumplings", step by step. Dumplings is one of my favorite Asian style foods and whenever I go to a Chinese restaurant I always have to have a plate of dumplings whether their friend, steamed, or boiled in broth. There are many shapes that dumplings can take on with circular ones being among them. I sometimes try to make my own concoction of dumplings, but unfortunately they never come out right. The only part of a dumpling that tastes good when I cook them is the filling. Anyways, here is a simple way that you can start drawing dumplings. If you want you can add a side if dipping sauce, or even some chopsticks. I will be back as soon as I can with more drawing fun so stay tuned in. Peace out and enjoy!
