The heart is a common shape. It graces all manner of objects, from clothing and decor to toys and school supplies. Near the time of Valentine’s Day, hearts can be seen everywhere, especially in advertisements of candy and cards. To many, the heart symbolizes romantic love. In fact, this shape has been used to represent the emotion of love since as early as the 13th century.
As common as the shape is, many find it difficult to draw a perfect heart shape. With this easy, step-by-step drawing guide, you will be able to draw a flawless heart for the ones you love.
To draw your heart, you will need a piece of paper and a pen, pencil, or marker. You may also wish to acquire additional markers, crayons, or colored pencils to color your finished heart. Alternatively, you could draw the heart on a piece of colored paper, such as scrapbook paper or construction paper, and cut it out when you are finished.
Notice that each step in the drawing guide is accompanied by a corresponding illustration. In each picture, the new lines for that step are highlighted in blue. Sketch lightly at first, as you will need to erase some of your early lines in order to complete your heart.
Draw a heart for someone you care about – you can call it a labor of love.
