Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Aphrodite
How to Draw a Great Looking Aphrodite for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing Aphrodite's eyes. Use overlapping curved lines to enclose the irregular rounded shape of the eyes. Shade a circle within each to indicate the pupils. Use curved lines to contour the eyelids above each eye and the shape of the nose.

2. Use long curved lines to outline Aphrodite's hair, ear, cheeks, and chin. Notice that the lock of hair consists of two wavy, roughly parallel lines that meet at a point. Then, draw her lips. Start with a curved line, with tiny curved lines on each end. Then, draw a curved line below it and a rounded "M" shaped line above it.
