Although this is not a typical how to hub. In this tutorial, it may prove to be a very valuable tutorial if you're an artist. Today, you will learn how to draw a spool of thread with a pencil and paper. Why would you want to know how to do this? I have no idea. But I really hope that you enjoy this tutorial and I hope you learn some valuable information today by reading it. :)
Firstly, draw an oval/circular shape at the of the page with your pencil. This will be the top of your spool.
How to draw
Make a half oval under your basic oval shape like shown in the example drawing.
Next, begin drawing the basic shape of the spool. This will be the body of the drawing, the spot where the thread will be twisted around. If you need a reference, you can look at an actual spool to get a better idea of what it is supposed to look like.
Draw the bottom end of the spool, a similar half oval shape as the top, but upside down instead.
Drawing specific Objects
Now you can begin drawing your thread. Start drawing lines all the way around your spool. Give it the appearance of coiling around the body of the spool.
Draw a hole at the top of the spool, right in the center. Almost there!
You might want to add some detail to your spool if you wish. That's all!
