How to Draw a Bonfire

Step 1.

Let's start by simply drawing the silhouettes of people standing around. I drew both men and women.

Step 2.

Color the silhouettes in like so, then proceed to step three.

Step 3.

We will now draw the base or the ring of the bonfire which is in front of the people. Once that is done draw the fiery flame as it burns high but clean.

Step 4.

Add flame detailing to the bonfire or actual flame like so.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw the landscape line for the setting you are trying to create. Erase whatever mistakes you might have made.

Step 6.

Here is the line art. Now just add some color, a night sky and a bunch of stars.

Out of all the lessons I've uploaded today, this is my favorite. I think it's because of the setting I created when drawing this picture and how you can sense the day even if it isn't real. Today, I will show folks how to draw a bonfire, step by step. When was the last time you had a fire outside in your backyard or at a friends/family's house? If you're like me you join in or have a bonfire at least once every one to two weeks. Usually when you have a bonfire, company comes over and conversations take place between everyone as a group, or as individuals. The great thing about bonfires is that anyone of any age can join in on the fun. I wanted to do things a little different with my concept and draw the silhouettes of people standing around the fire as they socialize with one another and have a good time. I do think that people will like this lesson, even if your fires at home are not as big. Adios folks and have fun drawing a bonfire.
