STEP 1. Begin your first step by making two shapes. The top shape is a circle, and the bottom shape sort of looks like an egg.   STEP 2. You will now draw the scroll, peg box, and neck of the cello like you see here. The neck is also home to the fingerboard as well.   STEP 3. Next, sketch out the entire body of the cello, and if I was to name the areas of the body I would point out that the top portion of the cello is called the upper bouts, and the dipped in area is called the C bouts. The design of the cello is very specific which is why they give a very specific sound.   STEP 4. As you can see you will now move onto draw out the swirl like shapes which are called F holes. The middle bar between the F holes is called the bridge, and the piece that is below the bridge is called the tailpiece. At the very bottom of the tailpiece is the end pin or end stopper. Draw out all these components like so, and then sketch in detailing at the corners of each tip of the cello's design.   STEP 5. Here you will sketch out the design of the scroll which is on the sides at the top of the cello. Next, draw in the tuning keys and then move to step six.   STEP 6. For the last drawing step, all you have to do is sketch in the detailing to the peg box first, and then draw the four strings as well as the fine tuners at the base of each string. When that is done you can clean up any mistakes as well as the guides that you drew in step one and along the way.   STEP 7. Now that you are done, you can color in your cello to complete the design. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I did making it.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
