How to draw a heart with an arrow

Remember, when drawing Cupid with a bow and arrows, we told a romantic story that this character flies in the clouds and shoots arrows in human hearts who soon find their soul mate on February 14, the Valentine’s day. That’s why, today we decided to prolong this romantic story with the help of the following drawings. A heart pierced by an arrow is considered to be a symbol of a person in love. To draw it correctly, we have prepared a step by step instructions with pictures and description of the average level of complexity.

You need:
1

Auxiliary lines

As always, the first stages of drawing are done with the help of the auxiliary lines. Draw two cross lines in the center of the sheet; they will help us to depict the details of the drawing. This greatly simplifies the drawing process.

Heart

Draw semi-circular lines to show the upper part of the heart.

If you draw together with your children or you just don’t have any drawing skills, we have a more detailed instruction on how to draw a heart easily and quickly.

 

Heart

Draw two straight lines at the bottom which go from the semicircular ones and connect them at one point.

Erase the lines

The heart is ready. Have you done it? If not, see the drawing steps again and correct the details. When the shape is ready, you can erase the auxiliary lines. We won’t need them anymore.

Arrow's basis

Take a ruler and draw two long, straight lines diagonally. Connect them with horizontal lines at the edges. You should get a thin stick which will soon be transformed into an arrow.

Make two semicircular serifs in the central part of the arrow; they will indicate the penetration of the arrow into the heart.

Plumage

The plumage of the arrow is made in the form of feathers which are glued to the object at a certain angle. They are made to accelerate the speed of arrows, they help to hit the target and  to keep the balance in flight.
