Step 1

Arrows are made of straight branches of the tree, and today we will try to draw an arrow using the maximum straight lines. At first draw a vertical line. It will be good if you could draw that line without a ruler. You should try to draw this line as straight as possible. The ability to draw straight lines necessary for each artist. Being able to draw straight lines, you can for example draw wolverine claws or an iPhone without a ruler. If you can not draw it on the first try, erase and try to draw the line again. Actually at this stage we made a big part of the draft. But we must not relax.
