Draw a generic payoff diagram for the option that the trader should buy. Superimpose the diagram for the option writer. Show the strike price, breakeven point, in the money and out of the money regions. You do not need to factor in the option premium per unit to draw the diagram
For Call Option Seller, the Inflow of premium takes place first. So the yellow line is for call option seller, as the stock price increases and crosses strike price, the premium that you have gained gets eaten up and as the stock price keep on increasing, so unlimited loss.
For Call option buyer, you pay premium, so start with outflow of cash. As stock price increases and crosses strike price, then you recover premium paid and earn unlimited profit.
