Anchors used to be popular as tattoos. Drawing a simple but great looking anchor is not difficult. An anchor drawing is made mostly out of simple geometric shapes that anyone can draw.
The tutorial below is very detailed. If you follow the step-by-step instructions, you can easily create a beautiful anchor drawing in just minutes.
Draw with a light touch at first. That way you can easily erase any stray lines you draw. Don’t be shy to tweak your shapes. Nobody makes a perfect circle or line in the first try.
In the guide below, each step is highlighted in a light blue color.
You don’t need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
