Eight simple steps are required to learn how to draw cupid! I will show you how to illustrate this adorable character properly using simple shapes and lines that anyone can easily duplicate. The result is a fun illustration made from basic elements and filled with just enough details to make the character recognizable without spending hours drawing complex shapes.

How to Draw Cupid

Step 1

First, sketch the head of cupid using a long oval shape. Notice that this is not a perfect shape. The top is narrower and the bottom of the head is a little bit flat.

Next, draw a thin rectangle to illustrate the body. Once you are finished, you can draw another smaller rectangle below the first one to represent the legs of the cartoon character.
