Step 1

Mark the general proportions of the cup. Draw a line that will act as its center.

Step 2

Draw two ovals for the edges of the cup and a plate.

Step 3

Inside the upper oval, outline a smaller one. With smooth lines, draw the shape of the coffee cup.

Step 4

Add the bottom of the cup. Draw a semicircle to show the thickness of the plate. Delineate a guideline for a handle. Add a small oval for the place where the handle and cup connect.

Step 5

Draw the shapes of the handle and the cup bottom.

Step 6

Outline the rear side of the handle and the coffee level.

Step 7

Contour, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Draw more details and a table. Erase all guidelines.
