2. A Step-by-Step Guide to Vegetable Drawing for Kids

Step 1: Draw the body

First, draw the body of the brinjal. It looks like a spaceship or a submarine, ready for an adventure! Create an oval shape, but instead of making it perfectly round like an egg, make it a bit longer and broader at the bottom.

Step 2: Add the top

Next, draw the leafy part of the stem. From the thin top area of the brinjal, draw a shape that looks like a cursive ‘M’ but makes it look like leaves, as shown in the image.

Step 3: Complete the stem

Draw the upper part of the leaf and connect it with a small stem. Now it looks like a little hat on the brinjal’s head.

Step 4: Add the details.

Add a few light lines between the leafy stems to show the texture. Then, draw a small circle at the bottom of the brinjal and a comma shape next to it. It should look like an upside-down semicolon. This semicolon shape shows the shiny surface of the brinjal.

Step 5: Draw the face. 

Now, draw two small circles below the stem to create the eyes. Inside each of these circles, draw even smaller circles to show the depth, then colour them solid black. Use a white marker to create two dots within the black circles. Next, add a small ‘U’ shape below the eyes for the smile. Finally, add two small ovals on the cheeks to give it a cute blush.

Step 6: Colour it.

Colour the body of the brinjal bright purple and the leafy stem green. Use a darker green to trace over the smaller lines you created in the stem. Colour the semicolon shape with a lighter purple. Add a brighter shade of pink to the blush and a lighter shade of pink to the smile.

Final Touches

Now it is time to give your drawing the final touches to make it look perfect. Once you complete colouring the brinjal, look carefully and erase any extra lines or marks to make it clean. You can also draw a square border to give the brinjal a frame. Give highlights and shadows to the brinjal by using different shades of the same colour.

Additionally, what you can do

  • Since we have created a happy face for the brinjal, you can try something different and make an angry face by simply inverting the curve of its smile.
  • Refer to the provided image anytime you feel stuck.
  • Take your time and have fun! Drawing is about expressing yourself, so do not worry about making it look perfect.
  • Experiment by adding texture to the stem of the brinjal with different patterns.
  • You can draw a plant attached to the brinjal to make it even more beautiful.
  • If you make a mistake, do not stress. Use your eraser and try again.
  • Practice makes perfect, so keep drawing until you become a pro!


Drawing this eggplant can be a delightful experience, and we hope you are proud of what you have created. If you are not completely satisfied, do not worry—it was your first try, and the important thing is that you gave it a go. To improve your skills, we have provided a worksheet for extra practice. Remember, the more you practise, the better you will get. Let your creative imagination flow without fear of failure. Have a great time drawing!
