Draw the outline of watermelon and take the soft medium and hard charcoal powder as shown in the picture.
For shading the seeds and strips of the watermelon use a darker grade of pencil, or use multiple layers. Smudge it using blending stick.
Highlight the inner area of the half watermelon with a darker shade.
For the rest of the area, use a lighter shade, and highlight the midpoint of the watermelon as shown.
At last, give a shadow effect to it by lightly shading around the edges.
