How to draw a Granny Smith Apple

Updated on November 2, 2012

History of the Granny Smith Apple

The Granny Smith Apple is light green in color and originated in Australia. The apple was later named after the 1800s' cultivator known as Maria Ann Smith. The apple has a hard light green skin with luscious fruit flesh. Although they are normally green in appearance, the Granny Smith is also known to turn almost yellow as well.

Today, we will be learning how to draw this tasty green apple known as the Granny Smith. The reason why I didn't want to make a hub about regular McIntosh red apples is because frankly, I feel that they are overrated and I wanted to be more creative in this blog.

There really is not much to drawing an apple in the first place. Most of us learned how to draw one way back in grade school. However, I'm sure there are some people who still struggle to draw a basic, moderately 2 dimensional apple. Please keep reading this hub to see the step by step instructions and pictures.


Step 1

Draw a sphere like object on your sheet of paper.Since apples aren't completely round, you don't have to make your sphere perfect. We will be modifying the sphere a little in the next step so please be sure you have an eraser handy. It's also wise to draw the sphere kind of light at first too.

Step 2

Make your sphere a little more defined. If you see the bottom and top of any apple, you can clearly make out a center for where the apple's core is. The top and bottom of an apple core is slightly curved, caved in. the bottom of the apple can somewhat be compared to the cleft of a human chin while the top where the stem comes out of is more caved in.

Step 3

This is the last and final step. Draw in your stem and that is basically it. There are only 3 steps to completing your Granny Smith apple and the rest after that is completely up to you. You can add some leaves to the stem if you want. If you want to add a leaf, you can refer to my leaf tutorial hub, specifically directed at drawing a leaf.


Good luck drawing your apple! I tried to make this hub as short as possible with only 3 steps! Have fun :D!
