The humble guava tree is a common sight in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and northern South America – but you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home in just a few short steps – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a black fineliner to draw a small “egg shape” at the top of your page, making the bottom a little more square than the top.
Repeat this shape all across the page to create your fruits…
And then add a small square to the top of each fruit.
Next, add a collection of teardrop shapes to the top of this, giving your tree a few leaves.
Add another set of leaves to the left…
And connect these to the fruits with short, wavy lines.
Add more leaves to the right of the collection…
And start to join the fruits together with sets of short, parallel lines for twigs.
Add two longer, curved lines to the top and bottom of the fruit at the bottom right.
Then, add a small bump to the top of this.
Continue to add leaves below this…
And then add two teardrop shapes, connected to a bump at the top, to the left of the page.
Add two parallel “V” shapes below this, and then three curved lines.
Continue to add parallel lines connecting the fruits, and then bring two lines down at the bottom for a trunk.
Add another sharp shape to the left…
And then continue to add leaves to this side of the tree.
Next, add a tuft of grass to the bottom of the trunk.
Use a green pen to shade in each of the guava fruits on your tree.
Now, use a darker green to the leaves and the tuft of grass at the bottom.
Then, use a brown pen for the trunk and the twigs of the tree to complete it.
And there we have it – your very own guava tree to enjoy. Why not take a little time to learn more about these types of trees, and the places where they grow?
