It’s drawingforall.net, and today we will show you how to draw an arrow. At early times, the bow and arrows were formidable weapons. Nowadays arrows are often used in hunting and sports.

This is a very simple drawing guide and even a beginner can handle this lesson. So, let’s start the tutorial and learn how to draw an arrow!


Step 1

Arrows are made of straight branches of the tree, and today we will try to draw an arrow using 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 is necessary for any 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, then erase the lines and try to draw them again. Actually, at this stage, we made a big part of the drawing. But we must not relax.

Step 2

We continue our lesson on how to draw an arrow. Draw another vertical line directly under the first one. The arrow must be straight and narrow. As we have said, this is a very simple lesson. Notice, that both lines should be the same distance from each other along the entire length. And, as we have said, you should try to draw all the lines without a ruler. It remains for us to draw the head and plumage of the arrow.

Step 3

At this stage, draw the arrowhead. There are many different arrowheads, but today we are going to draw the most popular of them – the triangular head. It should look like an acute-angled triangle. The upper and lower corners of the head should be the same. In fact, it is not just a drawing lesson on how to draw an arrow, but rather a lesson on how to draw straight lines. And as in the previous stages, you should try to draw the arrowhead without a ruler.

By using a pair of trapezoids outline the fletching of the arrow. As in the last step, the upper and lower parts of the fletching have to be the same. You know what we say about a ruler, is not it?

Step 5

In this stage, we will erase all unnecessary lines and finish drawing the arrow’s fletching. Add some diagonal lines to the tail.
