Start with an oval shape for the rim of the cup, and then draw a vertical line down the center of the shape you just drew.


Next, draw a more pinched inner ring which is going to be used as the dimension or opening of the cups design. Once that is done add a few detailing dashes.


Now it's time to draw out the shape of your cup. This is the step where you choose to go with a coffee cup design, or a glass set up. Again, add some dimensional lines for the rim of the dishware.


For the last step, all you need to do is draw the handle, and then erase the visible guidelines you drew in step one.


Look how nice your cup came out looking. Now you can color it in, or even write a neat inscription on the front to make this cup look like a souvenir instead.

Description: I'm here again, and I'm also back with another tutorial that is going to be helpful, and useful. Every once in a while I will have the need to draw some kind of dishware piece for a certain sketch that involves a table, chairs, and people. Not only that but, if you're going to be an artist, you also have to learn how to draw objects such as cups, plates, forks, spoons, and so forth. Having said all that, let us begin this tutorial by letting me teach you all "how to draw a cup", step by step. Drawing cups can be really easy, and then again it can also be really hard. I chose to draw a simple coffee cup, holding a hot serving of java. There is so many types of hot beverages that can be held in a coffee cup. As you know, these types of cups are specifically made to keep contents like coffee, java, cappuccino, tea, milk, coco, soup or broth, and even water, hot. Some people just like drinking hot water and lemon instead of tea. I used shades that would make a nice coffee setting since that is the type of cup you will be drawing. You can also choose to draw a glass, or a tumbler if that would suit your character better. No matter what type of design you choose, there is only one way you are going to learn "how to draw a cup", and that's by reading directions and following steps. I have to bolt out of here for a minute or two so I can get ready to go live tonight at eight. I still have a couple lessons that I have yet to upload, so try and sty tuned in to see what the heck they are going to be. Peace out peeps, and remember not to get too wired up!
