Learn how to draw a cute and funny cupid clip art mostly made from short curved lines and filled with plain colors. I will show you how to add simple wings, a lovely t-shirt and all the tools needed to keep this adorable character busy for weeks. Let's see how we can illustrate the character located below in just six very easy steps.
First, we need to create the body and the head of the cartoon character using rectangles. These rectangles are not perfect, but rather slightly curved on both sides. The top of the head is narrower while the bottom is much wider. In this case, I have used thin lines with pointed ends to create the character.
Arms and legs are made from more short lines created with pointed ends. The hands are represented by small curved lines and the feet by short flat lines. Notice how the feet are wider near the bottom of the illustration.
On top of the head, sketch some long curved lines to form the hair. Both ears are made from short curved lines. On the back of the character, you can draw simple wings using long curved lines.
Yes, the face is the most crucial part of the character. This one must be simple, attractive and appealing. In this case, both eyes and pupils are made from circles.
Eyebrows are created using short lines and the mouth + teeth are done using short straight lines.
A heart is drawn in the center of the cartoon character. On the left of the image, cupid is holding a bow and an arrow. Of course, a small heart can be seen near the tip of the arrow.
Simple bright colors can be added all over this cupid clip art. A yellow color is added inside the hair and both wings are blue. The shirt and the heart found on the arrow are red. Finally, a bright blue color is used for the pupils.
These are all steps required to draw a nice cupid clip art. You can try more versions of this cute character, beginning with this adorable illustration featuring cupid in action. Another nice alternative shows the character made from simple circles.
