An iceberg may be the exact element missing from a drawing of the ocean. Drawing an iceberg takes little time. Icebergs are large masses of ice that were once glaciers. They take several forms based on how they break apart or melt and change.

Things You'll Need

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Eraser
  • Reference picture

Find a picture of an iceberg for reference.

Draw a straight or wavy line across your paper that depicts the water. Add waves to the water by drawing curves throughout the waterline.

Water can be still or active around an iceberg.

Lightly draw a rough diamond shape, with most of the shape under the water you have drawn. Erase the water line in the middle of the iceberg.

Add detail to the iceberg by drawing curves and shades to create a three dimensional angle; refer to the reference picture for ideas.

Draw crevices close to the outer lines of the ice. Shade away from the crevices, making the crevices darker, then fade them to lighter.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your iceberg looks too much like a diamond, erase some sections of the shape and make them rough edges, creating more of an ice look.
